After a quick scan of Middle Eastern restaurants on TripAdvisor we chose to dine at Arabesque - so glad we did! First let me say that you will find Arabesque at the far end of Sukhumvit Soi 2 and that's a very good thing! Away from the hustle and bustle that is Soi 3, it is a tranquil oasis in... More

If you are looking for good food and shisha then Arabesque is the place to go. The atmosphere is phenomenal, it's like being in the Middle East in Bangkok. Mohamed was a great and treated my wife and I with excellent care. I really do recommend this place.

The restaurant wasn't too far from where we were staying so after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor my husband and I were really looking forward to trying it out. Unfortunately, I can't say that we share the same sentiments as most. Put simply it was just ok. I don't know, maybe we ordered the wrong dishes.... Also, we obviously didn't... More

We ordered the Mixed Grill and the Mixed Mezzah Platter and Egyptian bread. Everything was obviously fresh and perfectly seasoned. The mixed grill was served at the table on a small intricately decorated charcoal grill. The charcoal was perfectly ashed over. I immediately thought that it was amazing that they can do this and still serve the food promptly. We... More

This Middle Eastern eatery at the end of Sukhumvit Soi 2 (between Ploenchit Center and JW Marriott) serves delicious, authentic Egyptian food in huge portions (for Thais at least) at reasonable prices. Our favourites being the tender meat fatteh and the vegetarian kashory (an assortment of lentil, macaroni, rice and fried onions served with a chilly tomato sauce), the cooking... More

Genuine Egyptian food with real Egyptian bread. Nice setting more up market then the slap up ones you see in soi 3. Very authentic tasty meals, hosts are great & will go out of their way to accommodate your food requests. Never miss a chance to visit whenever I'm in Bangkok , a must on my itinerary. Getting hungry now.... More

Been here last month and what more can I say? This place is awesome! Having so many Arab friends back in America makes me become very picky when it comes to good authentic Egyptian food. Everything I ordered was delicious. Not to mention how my friends and I tried many new dishes that we have never heard of before. I... More

I am glad I went here - I went twice. It is mostly Egyptian food, but it is pretty good and we really had a nice experience. You can sit outside or inside - both are nice.

I had this restaurant while I was staying at Hotel Solo Sukhumvit 2. Food is great and the service is also really good. Very good location opposite the hotel. I recommend this restaurant to everyone. But I think they should bring the menu price less. Its quite expensive for 2 persons because we didn't order so much.
