    For those enjoying sharing tapas and various Middle Eastern dishes this is an okay restaurant, but quite noisy when crowded. Friendly service. The Queen Street twin restaurant has a lovely patio however and seems less congested.

    Food was excellent. My beef skewer was cooked to a perfect medium. We had a sampler platter as an appetizer which was also delicious. Service was a bit slow at times. I was also turned off a little. I brought my 5 month old baby in his infant carrier which was sitting in a high chair that was provided by the restaurant. I was holding my baby at one point and the restaurant asked if i really needed the high chair as another table could use it. That was extremely rude.

    The falafels were light but crisp and the lamb skewers were tender and perfectly cooked to order. Although the restaurant was busy, we never felt rushed or intimidated to ask questions. The desert was wonderful!! However, the rice, was a total disappointment. A good reason to visit are the shows - belly-dancing & how they pour your water. The prices were actually fairly reasonable. After tax, the total bill for our meals was just over $50 CAD.

    I have eaten at Tabule more than I can count and each time I am disappointed by the lack of accommodation and common sense. In traditional Lebanese cuisine, serving hummus, garlic or tahini sauce when ordering meat or chicken is a no-brainer! The owners are cheap. My colleagues and I gave up on this place because really how can someone eat shish tawuk without any sauce? Why would you not bring a table spoon of hummus with our meat dishes? Is that 50 cents too much for you to absorb when on average a main course is $18? I ask for garlic and tahini every single time, my meat gets cold while I wait... Sigh. Don't think about getting a lick of hummus, it is not "allowed". They want you to pay $7 for a whole plate as an appetizer... Fail.

    It's good. An old neighbourhood standby, and consistent. The food is authentic and the wait staff is okay. The noise level especially during the belly dancer's routines made it nearly impossible to hear anyone at your own table in an already cramped restaurant.

    I've had the food at Tabule a few times. Sometimes for dine in, sometimes delivery and each and every time the food is delicious. The babaghanouj is really creamy, the felafels are crispy on the outside, soft inside, and the kefta is really juicy. Definitely recommend this place. It gets packed so make a reservation or eat early. They also have a belly dancer which really adds to the ambiance but I should note it's a tight space!

    Regrettably, food not of the standard it once was. Tomatoes had absolutely no flavour and they are currently in season. No excuse for this. Some of the meat was on the tough side. Nicely served, attentive service. Noise level makes conversation exceedingly difficult.

    The mezze dishes are delicious, varied and well presented. As a group of four we managed to order several mezze dishes added a few skewers and made a meal out of this. Great combination and very varied. The service was attentive, fast, with lots of smiles. Our waitress Reina (sp?) was very helpful, attentive and made us feel welcome with her big smiles.

    I've been to this restaurant many times, and always enjoyed it. My friend was coming for the first time. We were offered a seat inside or on the patio; we chose outside because it was a lovely evening. Our waiter was pleasant but ignored us for much of the meal. My friend needed time with the menu, he came back once, and then disappeared. We had to ask the staff to find him. That was a theme throughout the meal. I had to go inside to ask for salt and pepper; it came as I finishing my last bite. There was a belly dancer dancing in the restaurant. She never came out to the patio. The maitre d' never told us that there would be dancing. He should have advised us to eat inside so that we could enjoy the entertainment. We felt cheated.

    <3 Always order the lentil soup! You will never be sad ever again, it is so smooth and delicious... We are not real foodies, but my boyfriend and I enjoyed the salad very much even though we don't like salad usually. And the water jugs are fascinating. *w* Definitely adds to the experience. The only problem we had was that we had to move outside because something in the air inside the restaurant made all our eyes sting (maybe some kind of spice?), but once we were outside we were okay again and able to enjoy the food. Don't let that ruin your experience though, just try to go at a time when you can snag an outdoor seat if that happens! It is worth it.

    I was happy to find Tabule as I missed Lebanese food. The food was great. We ordered Kufta banaduri and beef kabab. I took one star down because the fatush salad was good but not great. It only had 3 ingredients instead of 10. The dressing was good, but the bread was not fried - I guess more healthy! I would definitely go back again.
