Nothing great about this place, never experienced this kind of service. Totally unprofessional staff, who doesn't know how to take order and execute it. I asked for room temperature bottled water they served me cold water and without listening to me went off. I called the waiter again then was told that there is no normal temperature water available. For... More

My wife and I stayed across the road and decided to try during our stay. Our food was amazing everything I tasted was moorish to the point after a few drinks it was hard to move from my chair. Would highly recommend to anyone who loves Egyptian food. Service was good, shame they aren't on a main road as they... More

I been with some friends at Arabesque and we were surprised by the excellent service, quality of ingredients and excellent food. The deco and ambiance is welcoming ad there is an area outside to relax and smoke Shisha. We had a mix starter served with excellent bread made on demand. The music enhanced the experience and we could find a... More

The food was Good, but the ambience is weird with the flikkering lights wherever you look made me want to leave as soon as possible after dinner, maybe we are not their target group.

I was really looking forward to eating Egyptian food at Arabesque this after reading very positive reviews on TripAdvisor and other Travel Forums. First warning sign was the spelling on the menu, I usually avoid restaurants that can't spell their own national dishes properly. The Manager was friendly and her English excellent, the food was average and the service level... More

I was staying across the street from this restaurant and the first time I just ordered hummus and pita. Which was excellent so I went back for lunch with friends. We had appies and they ordered some meals while I had soup. The pita is made to order so it is hot and delicious. The dips that we ordered were... More

Visited with my wife this evening for dinner. First impressions weren't good. Its a restaurant with an identity crisis as it thinks its a club with loud dance and rap music blarring away. Ordered food anyway but my mixed grill was served cold, the lamb and chicken dry and flavourless. My wife's meal wasn't any better. Left really disappointed.

Find your way down Soi 2 in the Sukhumvit neighborhood of Bangkok and you will happen upon an inviting courtyard and house that are the Arabesque Egyptian Restaurant. It is a trip worth taking. The hustle and bustle of skytrains and Bangkok nightlife, though less than a kilometer away, will feel as if they have been left behind on this... More
