Went on a Saturday night for dinner. It was a set 4 course meal. Mezes to start then Lebanese tapas followed by a grill course (lots of meat for OH, veggie for me stuffed peppers, etc), then dessert - baklava, Turkish delights chocolate wafers, fresh...fruit. Every course was absolutely delicious. Menu suited me as a vegetarian and my meat eater hubby. Great choice of wine. Excellent service. Couldn’t fault anything at all. Perfect!More

They kindly gave us a portion of halloumi when...we asked (the only thing missing in our opinion) Staff lovely and friendly 100% recommendMore

We visited on a day trip to Dundee and went looking for lunch. We had the two course lunch, which was great value and good food. Everything was done just right: crunchy falafel, tender shawarma, tasty sides/sauces.

My husband and I had an overnight in Dundee last wednedsay 6/8/21 and having found Tahini on Trip Advisor decided to try it and were very pleased that we did. The service and food were absolutely fantastic. I had baba ganoush and falafel main and...honestly couldn't finish the portion (and I like my food) my hubby had halloumi and lamb shamwra and said it was excellent. It was 2 course menu for a set price and it was amazing value for money. When we are back in Dundee, we will be back at TahiniMore

We visited for dinner the other evening as a table of 5 and we had ordered the set menu tapas, below is our honest review of our dining experience! We were seated and drinks were offered, beers were served straight from the bottle with no...glasses very shortly followed by lots of small dips and flatbreads which swamped the table and were left not knowing what dishes were what and if these were actually part of the menu, after which only the ladies plates seem to be changed for fresh causing complete confusion then the next dishes followed. These arrived and were poorly presented unlike any pictures we have seen on this website not a salad, olive or chip in sight. For the mixed grill next we were given a massive plate of meats piled on top of each other again this was poorly presented, fatty and under cooked. Again unsure of what meats were actually on the plate poor quality aswell, the fat on the lamb was not cooked neither was the skin on the chicken wings which was an immediate put off. Towards the end of the meal we were given a massive plate with a poor selection and quality of random fruits and desserts, no cutlery or additional plates were provided. The atmosphere inside was horrendous, everyone was tightly packed with little room and no air conditioning which didn't help the already roasting room. We couldn't hear each other talking across a small table which wasn't the restaurants problem but lead to an overall terrible experience, the value for money at £27 per head was not acceptable and did not come close!! The highlight of the evening was leaving afterwards where the mood of everyone returned to normal, after such a disappointing experience we would not recommend anyone to dine here. If we could leave 0 stars this would still be too many.More

Tried to get a table on the Monday but was fully booked. Booked for the next night and so glad we did. The set 4 course menu was one of the best meals/experiences, food wise I have had! Every course was delicious!

We really enjoyed the excellent tapas, but were overwhelmed by the amount of food (only the fixed menu was available) - and we weren't the only ones; this must waste so much food. But staff were cheerful and friendly, and the meal was still good...value. The restaurant is tucked away on a quiet street, but well worth seeking out. We walked off the huge meal by taking a turn around the waterfront, only five mins walk away, revelling in the weird angles of the V&A.More
