Tabure is unique in St Albans, an authentic and delicious Mediterranean restaurant! Order a few dishes from each section(fish/meat/veg) and tuck in! Each dish varies from £8-15/18 but when you’re all sharing, it works out very reasonably! Service is brilliant, even when it’s busy, very...More

Arriving drunk and unsteady on your feet from the pub, over an hour late for your booking with your mate, was the main reason my front of house manager turned you away. With our busiest period of the evening around 7pm, by the time you...More

Tabure is a decent enough restaurant that specialises in Middle Eastern Food. The food is not too badly priced although the restaurant is very much geared towards sharing which may not suit some people. The food itself was mainly hit, but some of the dishes...More

We were advised to book well in advance and I can see why! Very helpful staff offer assistance in choosing which - and above all - how many dishes to choose. The menu is sensibly not enormous, but even so, it's easy to get carried...More

Hi, our meat is not Halal. Our menu is made up of sharing dishes with over half made up of vegetarian dishes and a quarter fish, so there are lots of choices for you. Regards, Tabure
