All the food we ordered was delicious! Very happy that the portions are generous. And the staff made sure to accomodate us for ramadan; we ordered the food early and they made sure to wait until we could eat before bringing it out and the food was hot and perfect! Thank you Tanoreen for the great experience!

The food is always amazing. The flavors are out of this world. Not only is Tanoreen the best restaurant in Bay Ridge, it is one of the best restaurants in all of NYC! If you haven’t been you are certainly missing out on a wonderful experience and some of the best food you will ever eat.
I highly recommend going on the weekend and getting the lamb if you’ve never been before. It will blow you away!

The food here is incredible, amazing Palestinian/Lebanese dishes and some local adaptations for the neighborhood crowd.

Do yourself a favor and come check this place out.

Phenomenal!
A treat to the taste buds!
Delightful appetizers. Incredible tomato and cucumber salad. Subtle main courses. Topped by “Grandma’s coconut harissa, coffee, and arka (aperitif), and highly attentive and friendly service.

Well worth the 45 minute subway ride from center city!!!! 👌

Lunch was great- the entrees are a bit pricey but the half portion options are perfect! Loved that it was quiet and spacious enough to bring babies in strollers!

The food is excellent, except for the baklava. We had hummus and the chicken kabob dinner. Service was attentive and professional. We were very disappointed in the baklava which was very dry. Not what we expected at this fine restaurant.

I love dining at Tanoreen. It is my go to place to bring out of town guests. I love getting a healthy selection of appetizers to give everyone a sense of the variety of Rawia’s cooking.

What a wonderful restaurant. The food is wondeful. The ambiance is not calm or quiet. The families sitting there were so loud. Yelling over eachother. I guess it's just the Brooklyn culture(also, Sunday is family day.) Everything else was great. I had the Lamb Kofta Tahini. I'm still dreaming about it.

We never had a bad experience at Tanoreen. Until this visit. The service was horrible. we were a party of 6 at 5:30 on what apparently was a very busy Saturday. It took at least 10 minutes to even get a server to approach our table. We ordered cocktails( 6 of us). Without exaggerating, it was 30 minutes before those drinks arrived- first 3 drinks, then 2, then the last. Our appetizers arrived on time but the dishes were cleared almost before we were finished with them. In fact, there were a few morsels that went back to the kitchen before we could stop the busboy. Our Entrees came out at different times which was awkward since our polite guests waited until everyone was served to start eating. The food was good. The service was abominable. Of course, we will return because this was so different from other times we've dined here. But probably not on a weekend.

The only reason I gave four stars for ambiance is that we usually like a table away from the traffic of the kitchen. However, the food is always delicious, so it makes up for the wait staff moving around. Tanoreen is unmatched when it comes to the Chef's perfect combination of spices for every dish. I have never had a gastronomic experience in any other Middle-Eastern restaurant to surpass them!

I expected delicious food and they delivered! The restaurant have been featured by Tasting the Past by Kevin Begos.
I was after the Cremisan wine and I was delighted to find this restaurant in Brooklyn- where I lived many years ago- before moving to Scarsdale. The trip is worthwhile the food is delicious 😋

The food is excellent with a large variety of choices and it was served by an attentive wait staff. The place is a little crowded and noisy, so it was not as relaxing as we would have wished. I believe that the tip options printed on the checked are calculated as a percentage of the total bill, including the taxes. More commonly, tips are calculated on the actual food charge, not including tax. You should not be paying a tip on the tax.

Inventive and tasty variants on Middle East classics. The selection of four different hummus’s is unique, the lamb dishes are well prepared and vegetables are never an afterthought.
