“Al-Hussain Middle East Food Treat”
Reviewed February 14, 2010

Al-Hussain Restaurant in Anusarn Market, Chiang Mai, takes pride in perfecting authentic Arabic, Indian, Pakistani and Hala meals. Menu is full of color pictures of the dishes. Menu, service, everything is in English.

Mr. Shah (Abu Hussain) owns it. Sonny, from Nepal, manages it. We did not know which dishes made the place famous, so we asked Sonny to help us. He did, and from the appetizers on, our experience was a delight.

The waiters had no uniforms, and looked like they were just walking down the street moments ago in their most casual attire. After I got over that, I realized we were getting 5-star service.

At a glance, Al-Hussain could be a 1-star place. But you immediately realize the food is a treat.

You may eat outside (with fans & shade – no mosquitoes) or inside. The outside floor has tiles copied from an ancient celebrated Middle East mausoleum. The whole place is spotlessly clean by the way. Both sides of the entrance feature scenes of a mosque etched in glass.

We will continue returning to Al-Hussain until we sample everything on their menu.

There’s really no good substitute for a great attitude. Photos enclosed. See friendship in their eyes? It’s also in their hearts.

It won’t break your budget to eat at Al-Hussain. I’m looking at our bill as I write this. We ordered 10 delightful things and the total is 880 Baht or $26.

Their drink that incredibly complements their food is “mint soda” but my wife insists her mango lassi was even better.

Helpful?
