Authentic Middle Eastern Food at Tarbush Restaurant in Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur

“Strike while the iron is hot!” That’s what one of my friends said in anticipation for another foodie trip to a Middle Eastern restaurant for lunch.

Last week, we were at Balqis Restaurant in Putrajaya. I also left a review of Shawarma Damascus on Google Maps. We’re back at another Middle Eastern restaurant for lunch in Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur.

How to get to Tarbush Restaurant

Today, we’re at Tarbush Restaurant at 138, Jalan Bukit Bintang, Bukit Bintang, 55100 Kuala Lumpur.

If you’re taking the train, stop at the Bukit Bintang MRT or Bukit Bintang Monorial, and then walk towards Jalan Bukit Bintang. Tarbush is just directly opposite Lot 10 and Fahrenheit 88 shopping mall. 

Parking is not really an issue, as you can also park in Lot 10, Sungei Wang Plaza, or Starhill Gallery, and walk across to Tarbush. If you’re coming from Lot 10 parking lot, take the escalator or lift from the 5th, 6th, 7th, or 8th floor down to the ground floor.

Tarbush Restaurant and Menu

Qualifying as one of Kuala Lumpur’s best dining experience, TARBUSH actually had extremely humble beginnings.

In 1998, it started with a small sandwich bar in Ampang Point serving shawarma and other small bites to the mall goers. Even then, TARBUSH’s dedication to using only the freshest and finest ingredients was paramount.

2001 saw the opening of TARBUSH Bukit Bintang. Strategically and conveniently located at the heart of the Golden Triangle, the casual dining outlet originally occupied only the ground floor. Today, with a newly renovated and upgraded interior, TARBUSH at Jalan Bukit Bintang doesn’t fail to impress guests with its classy ambience and of course, its wonderful dishes.

Tarbush embarked on their first ever fine dining restaurant on June 15, 2005. The invitation to open a restaurant at Starhill Gallery’s Feast Village was extended only to a few – TARBUSH being one of them.

Tarbush has a modern, interior design. At the entrance, you’ll be greeted by a standing kebab griller.

The restaurant is multi-storey, so you can sit upstairs at the balcony and enjoy street view of Bukit Bintang.
