Diners' Choice Winners: Best Overall
Melbourne / VIC's best restaurants based upon thousands of OpenTable diner reviews
A beautiful menu with some amazing flavours (including fresh wasabi!), delivered with charm and good humour by the chef. There was an extensive drinks menu and John, the Sommelier, did an amazing job matching some lovely sake to compliment the different courses. Don't expect a quite romantic meal . On the pricey end but an outstanding rating well deserved! MoreOpenTable Diner -

Chef and owner Adi Daboush arrived in Melbourne in 2004
a er extensive travels through the Middle East,
South, Central and North America, Europe and Asia.
Adi has worked in many kitchens here and abroad, learning from, and being inspired by, those around him. His travels, along with family recipes brought from Damascus, Tripoli and Tel Aviv led him to establish Tavlin in October 2012.
Tavlin, the Hebrew word for spice, is a celebration of Adi’s family’s
heritage, his passion and aspirations. Savta Esther’s secret recipes, Syrian spices, marinated and juicy meat cooked on a grill and fresh home made la a bread cooked in a tandoor oven are just some of the centre pieces here at Tavlin. All food is prepared and cooked daily with fresh and high quality ingredients.
Tavlin will delight all your senses; the food, photos, memories and music will have you thinking you are eating on the streets of central Tel Aviv.More
