Tabule is a Middle-Eastern restaurant located in the heart of downtown Toronto, Ontario. The flavors of Tabule are at once exotic and comforting. The dishes are prepared in such a way as to be friendly to diners who may have never experienced these particular flavor combinations before, which has made it a hit with tourists and a favorite spot for locals. The husband and wife team of Chef Rony Goraichy and Diana Sideris work hard using fresh, quality ingredients and their broad cultural knowledge to create dishes that are unique and exciting.
Some of Tabula's dishes, like the fried eggplant with lemon-garlic dressing, will be familiar to guests. Ma'anek is an incredibly savory Lebanese spicy beef sausage rolled with Middle Eastern spices and pine nuts.
If you want great tasting and very consistent food, this is it!
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.
Excellent food, we'll prepared, we'll served. I wish they would cut the belly dancing.
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.
the food was great, the atmosphere was good, couldn't ask for much more
consistent food and service. One of my favourite places to dine.
Simply fantastic Middle Eastern dining. The Belly Dancing show was also a surprise bonus. Servers were also attentive and very professional. I would recommend it to anyone.
Tried this restaurant for lunch with 2 friends. Lebanese food. Healthy food, excellent taste, efficient service, reasonnable prices. Will go back with pleasure! There was no more baclava for dessert but the dessert recommended by the waitress was delicious.... Cant't remember the name unfortunately.
Great restaurant. We have enjoyed the food and atmosphere for years.
Tabule was a great choice for our anniversary dinner. It was quant and not too noisy. The food was overall good. Only one dish was lacking (the kubbe). Our server was most enjoyable. He helped us celebrate with a complimentary dessert to share.
