    I have eaten at Tarboosh 3 times already when I was in LA. I first tried the halal guys across the street but they do not compare. I have had the half chicken at Tarboosh by recommendation of the staff and I was not disappointed great seasoning and very tender. On another visit I had the chicken shawarma meal with humus and salad very delicious. I had the gentleman whom I think may have been the owner offer me a sweet mint tea after dinner it was very good sweet with fresh mint leaves. I will keep coming back and spread the word this is a great restaurant at very affordable prices

    If you leave in Koreatown , this is for sure one of the best places to buy shawarma or kebab. Big plate with humus, rice and salad on the sides. Fast service. A lot tables with comfortable armchairs and nice arabic music.

    The food is amazing and really tasty. The people there are friendly and very welcoming. This is my new favorite restaurant for middle eastern food, definitely will be coming here more often.

    I've been into so many Middle Eastern restaurants. I've never tasted any authentic Middle Eastern food in the USA as good as these guys make ever.
    Best part was the hot food. You could tell it was fresh and made on the spot.
    I had mixed grilled BBQ which was fantastic! I loved the hummus and the kebbeh.
    Another good thing is the patio outside. It's in a good area with very cool air breeze.
    The service was really nice too. And the staff members were very friendly.


    I'll be going there whenever I'm around, that's for sure!

    Another great neighborhood find! This place offers authentic middle eastern cuisine with generous servings and very affordable prices! Hubby and I shared the whole chicken and beef Shawarma. We both enjoyed the meal and had left overs to go. The owner and staff were very accommodating too. And the interior looks like a fancy sit down place..right in the middle of busy Wilshire district. Definitely coming back!

    This falafel is the best in LA. The chairs are very comfortable inside and they have a nice courtyard with alot of seating. Traditional middle eastern music and music videos on two flat screens. The food comes fast

    Where shall I begin? For starters, the food is probably the most authentic Arab food I have had in the United States. The falafel was not greasy, and the baba ghanoush was especially good. Reminds me of this amazing restaurant I used to visit while i was a student in Amman. Also, the staff and people working there were especially nice and welcoming. Will definitely be returning many times in the near future.

    Tarboosh exceeded my expectations. The quality of the food was way better than the Halal Guys (which is right across the street). My only regret is not coming here sooner.
    The chicken was tender and the hummus was soooooo good.

    I'm a fairly average guy and I work out at the gym regularly so I have a big appetite. $13.07 (includes tax) for a veggie plate that serves as two meals for me is pretty darn good. Plus, it's one of the few places around that makes baba ghanoush (like hummus but made with eggplant). I'll definitely be back!

    I'll drive 300+ miles to eat here, the taste lingers on my palate, my head is sweating..
