Terrible!! We asked the waitress for her recommendation for a meat platter and she suggested the banquet. Upon ordering 2 banquets for 4 people and expecting lots of meat, we were given 1 chop, 1 chicken kebab and 1 lamb for each banquet. How was...this supposed to feed 2 people. The service was very poor also. Never going back again!!More

We have eaten at Tiba's numerous times over recent years and it is our favourite go-to for a great feed at incredible prices. We rarely leave the place paying more than $20 a head, yet we never leave unsatisfied. The charcoal grilled lamb cutlets are...an absolute must, and the garlic dip and falafels are my personal favourites. Its all good - not fine dining but very more-ish. The place has a bustling feel, and the crowd is usually as interesting as the food. Being no-alcohol it has a different vibe that is really pleasant. Great place for a group or family gathering, or a late drop in for a snack on the way home. Can't wait to go again!More

Been here a few time and each time I’m never disappointed! I absolutely love middle eastern food. I ordered the vegetarian platter, l veganised it as best as l could by removing the yoghurt dip with the garlic dip Toun as most of the items...on this platter is vegan friendly, the 2 items that weren’t, l took home, the cheese pie and cheese and spinach pie and hubby ate them later. Everything else l thoroughly enjoyed and would order it again in a heart beat. It’s always busy and the service is always great. Highly recommend you stop buy to enjoy this place for yourself💚🌿More

I ate the chicken shawarma (it tasted a little old) and had food poisoning - had to take the day off work the next day. My friends ate vegetarian options and were fine though.

Not everyone’s cup of tea but I think Tiba’s is great. Almost every time I go in, they make a mistake on the order though. Not a big deal, but that prevents five stars.

Wanted somewhere to eat an early dinner before a show at The Jazz Lab. The food was fresh and delicious (no alcohol allowed which I sort of liked as it seemed to indicate cleaner/clearer intentions) and the service was timely and very friendly. I will...definitely be back.More

Good authentic Lebanese food. We had the vegetarian platter which was plenty for two persons. Nice to find this gem when all other restaurants on Brunswick St had closed after 21:00 on a public holiday.

This used to be my Shawarma go to, but when I recently took some visitors, it was a disappointment, people wondered why I brought them here. Not sure the if management has changed but food certainly has, and so has process. No more toasting the...Shawarma in a sandwich press to get the bread crispy, just wrap and begone.More

We often taken our adult children out to dinner here. It’s delicious and cheap and in 12 years we have never been disappointed. Great bbq meats, dips and freshly baked Turkish bread that continues to be refilled for as long as your tummy wants.
