Toum believes in providing a unique food experience through its authentic middle eastern cuisine and irreplaceable tastes

Toum, our name comes from the garlic sauce that is common to the Middle East. This sauce containing garlic, salt, olive oil or vegetable oil, and lemon juice, traditionally crushed together using a wooden mortar and pestle, is commonly used in our menu. One of the most flavoursome elements, Toum being or not being in the food makes a huge difference!

Toum started with a promise of serving authentic middle eastern food.

The promise stemmed from Minali Iyengar’s love for this cuisine, as she spent her childhood and teens in Saudi, eating authentic first hand cooked food. She believes in offering the same excitement and experience, that she lived with, through her brand. Toum is for the ones who love authenticity, and are ready to set out onto an exploratory journey of flavours. The quality of the food and dedication put into preparing each dish ensures that no one will ever go disappointed.

If you seek one of the best places to enjoy authentic middle eastern food, your search ends here.
