Finally, after a few days of searching of restaurant, we have decided this will be the restaurant to be dine for the Team Bonding Champion’s held at Port Dickson last weekend. This restaurant have a nice ambiance as to my first time I went down to lower ground of StarHill and to my astonishment, the whole place is well decorated with alot of fine dining restaurants and the design of the area is just so good. It does not surprise me only during the first visit but definitely the rest also.
Tarbush actually serve Arabic food and the owner is also from Arab. Therefore with the origins of the actual culture, we give it a try.
The decoration of the restaurant is not bad but definitely its crowded, when it comes to celebration as that day it was not us only have celebration there were another big long table on next to us was about 14-18 people, and us would be 9 people. It was crowded until like the waiter and waitress have sneak thru the narrow ally of the chairs in between with us praying that the food don’t fall on our head. Communication would be a problem if you ask the wrong waiter or waitress as they are from Arab. They do have locals also but I definitely can say that during Tuesday night, the whole restaurant was full with foreigners and we were the only local customer that they have.
This would be the first dish of the night, a Caesar Salad. Can honestly said that it is just a salad, noting special on it and of course most of the team winner did not finish it as this is their first time in their life that start to eat a meal with a salad.
The second dish that came up. Mushroom Soup. Definitely it looks ordinary, but when you drink it, it is so think and fill with mushroom blended. Not only that, the special ingredient that they add in was oyster. They blend mushroom and oyster together, that makes the taste nice and think.
This is my main course, forgot what it is called as I forgot to take the receipt back. But the whole meat is all lamb. The lamb is so tender and soft. Juicy and melt on the fats of it. The nasi beyani have the wok aroma. It goes very well with the nut and also eggplant.
This is the winner main course as most of them ordered this which is the Lamb.(forgot what’s the name also) This serving was not really nice, as the lamb is overcook. Some pieces of the lamb is burn because the reheat the food again. Even you can take one of the burn piece of lamb and throw the dog, will faint. It is just so hard. We complain on this dish.
This is another main course we ordered. Its Mix Grill, This definitely taste alot much better compare to the Lamb thing. It is a mixture of Chicken and Lamb. Start off with the chicken, the chicken tendory is so juicy and soft as they cook it just nice, not too hard and ngam ngam cook. The Lamb is definitely the best in there, they season it with mint I believe as has strong taste of it, yet when you cut it, there will be the juice flowing out from the lamb. The pizza, from the top left is the nicest, they mince the lamb and baked in pizza style.
Caramel Pudding & Arab Dessert(Baklawa)
Caramel pudding taste normal, noting special on that. But definitely to our shocking experience, the Arab Dessert is the most expensive desert we ever encounter. It cost RM15 and it was only a few pieces on the dish. Looks like the left over that they manage to accumulate and serve it out. We were so ‘charm’ have to be like 1 person bite half. BANNED on it. It was not as nice as I ate when I was in Melbourne.
This are the chef that prepare our food. Definitely a good job to him, in the middle. We will come saviour on the lamb again. Definately the service in there was good by the supervisor Yaakob. Great job to you for serving us so good. During the complain of the lamb, he asked us what do we want for the compensation, in the end he gave us 1 more extra Sisha and 2 ‘Teko’ of Arab Tea.
9 of us dine in a total bill of RM650. Well, I guess it was reasonable. As 5 of them (champion had 4 dish course and 4 committee only had main dish and a drink.
