We had a reservation, came in early and we were seated. Waiter took our order and seemed in a rush. We were eating and the waiter was ready to remove our dishes before we were done. We weren’t lingering at all. He kept watching over...us and coming by to pulls plates. Needless to say we were uncomfortable. We ordered dessert and within 5-7 min of receiving our dessert our waiter was gawking at us and walking back and forth to the table. Honestly, I regretted leaving a 20% tip like I always do. Had it not been for that fact that I was meeting a new family member for the first time at this dinner, I would have spoken to the owner or manager about our service. I haven’t been back, not sure if I’m willing to go back soon either.More

We have been dining at Tanoreen for many years. Since before they moved across 3rd Avenue to her 'new' much more elegant surroundings. But it is not really the decor but the amazingly consistent world-class middle eastern fare that Rawia, a justifiably famous chef, and...her crew create every day. Yes, she has literally written the book! Or maybe two by now. But her offerings stay at such a consistently high level! We experienced this just this week when we picked up a wide variety of 'take-out'. We have had a mixed experience with other restaurants during the shut-down here in New York. Not Tanoreen! Everything was at their culinary best! The Mezze - unbelievable as always! The Cauliflower, Brussel Sprouts, Mhammara even the 'standard' Hummus and Baba were extraordinary. We drove from Manhattan to Bay Ridge to pick up our food. And will do it again very soon!More

First time at this restaurant. Everyone was friendly and the food was delicious. Wanted to try everything on the menu. Had the Fatoush salad and the baked Mediterranean Eggplant. Both were very good with flavorings I had not experienced before. The cheese knafeh for dessert...was out of this world. Takes 15 minutes to prepare. In the scheme of things, not a long time and its well worth the wait.More

We dine here often and it never fails to live up to its reputation. The staff is attentive and the food is like eating homemade dishes. For those familiar with Middle Eastern restaurants, you will not only find the run of the mill staples that...you will find in any such restaurant, but lots of dishes that are unique to the chef and owner which are always worth trying. The knafeh for dessert is not to be missed.More

This place has credentials, so we tried it, We'll be back, but unfortunately we had the brunch offerings. We wanted the maloukia with meat, but ended up with foul mudammus and the hummus with meat, both too citrusy for our tastes, but on the brunch...menu. The foul was not bad, just not enough to make a substantial meal. The hummus was excellent, creamy, but too sour (skin of chick peas removed but overly lemoned). Malloukia is just a green that most Egyptians eat, but has proven remarkably elusive, even in Egypt, at least to average restaurant goers. Brunch is not a good arbiter of a meal, so we will return to try other items on the menu.More

Truly one of the best restaurants in all of New York City, thanks to the culinary genius of the omnipresent chef, Madame Rawia. Delectable Middle Eastern/Palestinian flavors in perfectly cooked dishes. Can’t recommend a dish because they are all great! Go with friends and share...many appetizers and a few larger-than-life entrees.More

The cuisine at Tanoreen is unique in quality and quantity. Haven't been there in decades, so we went with a group for my daughter's birthday. She ordered a large number of different dishes which were an adventure in good dining. Flavors were not what you...would find in American or Italian restaurants. Flavors were unique and others sweet. I go for the sweet. Service was Good. Setting was comfortable. Prices were reasonable. We all enjoyed the cuisine and the company. If you are looking for a culinary adventure, Tanoreen would be a good choice.More
