Came here because convenient and had decent food last time. Ordered shawarma sandwich, chicken shawarma platter, and chicken kabob platter. Beef and lamb in sandwich tasted as though it was previously frozen and generally not tasty. Inclusion of pickles was odd but only offensive to my daughter. Chicken shawarma platter also had old tasting meat but an amazingly large plate... More

The first impression that I got about this place is that it is a kind of hookah joint. However, there is a non-smoking section where one can avoid the smoke and eat. I had ordered for Falafel and Kafta Kebab. The Falafel was over fried while the Kafta was deep fried instead of a grill which is the traditional way... More

We eat Middle Eastern food often but cannot recommend this place. Very smoky inside, the sandwiches were below par and the sweets were old and overly sweet. There are much better places around unless you really want to smoke the hookah

I had a great experience here with my friend. Both of us enjoyed some Mint tea and he was enjoying his hookah. We used area outside and it was nice. Great staff and great food.

We returned home to Arlington after almost 4 wonderful years in years in Jordan. Our family enjoyed the cuisine and the atmosphere of the local restaurants. My wife especially enjoyed the bubbly pipe with coffee and desert after dinner. To our delight we discovered that Tarbouch had opened less than a mile from our home. We now enjoy that same... More

Went for dinner, and the only positive thing we ate was the hummus. The pita was stale, the rice flavorless, and the meat lukewarm. Portion sizes way too small for asking price. The servers all sat at a table eating, only getting up to clear dishes. Not once did our server ask how anything was. She brought "appetizer" halfway through... More

The food was average, but the service was excellent. I brought my wife and kids with me which I should not have done because it is a hookah place with lots of smoking inside and out. I was surprised to see lots of smoking allowed inside the restaurant.

I've eaten falafel all over the world, literally. This is by far the worst one I ever had. The falafel balls were hard as rocks, gnarled, and, I think, reheated leftovers. Add to that the three nuggets were wrapped, not stuffed, in one small pita with a few miserly shavings of some vegetables slathered in a pink sauce, not the... More
