This restaurant was quite close to our hotel and we thought we would try it out having read the reviews. We sAt outside and enjoyed all the hustle and bustle, ordered our dishes, one Thai minced beef dish and chicken biryani. It was OK but the beef was so chewy we wondered if it was beef at all, particularly as it was minced beef. We left as soon as we had eaten as the Arabic gentlemen at the table next to ours all started smoking. it was an OK meal, nothing special at all, but the next morning it felt anything but OK, as both of us had the runs, and it lasted pretty much all day. The first time in years that I've had that experience so we definitely won't eat there again.

Spectacular Chicken Masala and Butter Naan. Among the top 2 I have ever had in any country.

Surprisingly weak Falafel and Hummus. I can make better. Falafel was fresh but raw in center (not just moist).

Good service. Air con. Large portions.

Prices a bit high for area. Expensive for one person with two dishes but ok priced for a group.

Thank Mike L

a sure sign if a restaurant is good is when it always busy,such as this one.
Have eaten here several times now and the food is always good quality and
huge portions. The hummus , nan bread, salads and falafel are excellent

This place is incredible. We went there as we wanted something other than Thai. It was so good that we ended up going back every, single night for dinner. The quality of the kebab, the rice, everything - fresh and delicious. The bathroom was spotless (its always the first thing I check out) and they have an indoor dining room as well (we sat outdoors). The smell of the meat roasting on the BBQ and the overall ambience was really nice. Went there during Ramadan time as well so it was really busy during the late evenings. We highly recommend this place. There are also other Indian/Pakistani/Middle Eastern restaurants around that area of Bangkok. Can't remember the precise date that we were there, so am using a broad estimate.
