What we say: 4 stars

Bukit Bintang is the epicentre of Middle Eastern food in Kuala Lumpur and if you're after Lebanese food, Tarbush is a great starting point.

Tarbush is part of a small local chain but don't let that put you off. The sharing plates of meze (mostly vegetarian appetisers), served with warm flat bread, make for tasty meals in themselves. These include some of the best hummus (chickpea and sesame paste dip) in town, as well as baba ghanoush (smoky aubergine dip), falafel (deep fried chickpea patties) and fattoush (mixed salad topped by crispy fried bread). The grilled meats and baked dishes are recommended too.

Along with it's location on Bukit Bintang, Tarbush has a cheaper express outlet in Pavilion, and a more expensive restaurant in Starhill Gallery (T: (03) 2144 6393). All three are within short walking distance of Bukit Bintang monorail station.
