We had lunch here today (Nov 11, 2010)... sheesh kebab and kufta, tabbouleh, and saffron rice.

Rice was relatively plain but cooked correctly - just right amount of texture and moisture. Kebabs and kofta were quite tasty and juicey - not dry at all as is often at places like this. Tabbouleh was quite good - needed a squeeze of lemon however as it is served relatively dry.

Prices are ok - not bargain cheap as you may expect it should be for this area in bangkok, but not overpriced either - hence average rating in term of value for money.

Only complaint would be the sound system blaring out arabic prayers - that in inself does not bother me, but the occasional loud hissing, humming and popping of the speakers did prove annoying...

If you are in the mood for Persian or Lebanese food at a casual lunch time price, give it a try... they serve indian and thai also, but we did not try those.

We really enjoyed this restaurant. The service was excellent, the restaurant was clean and the food was great.

My husband's family is Arabic and it's hard (impossible?) to find Arabian food that is as good as homemade, probably due to the many different cooking styles.

We had kabobs, baba ghanoush (outstanding!), stuffed cabbage leaves and much more. It was excellent. And, we loved the ambiance - just walking through Little Arabia was interesting. It is obviously an "authentic" neighborhood.
