Shahrazad Restaurant

Makes a mean hummus

What we say: 4 stars

Located in the middle of the most Arab part of Bangkok, Shahrazad roasts lamb and chicken.

It also crushes eggplant for baba ghanoush, and makes a mean hummus drizzled with olive oil and sumac powder, served with a stack of crispy naan still soft on the inside.

The dining room looks like someone's Egyptian grandmother decorated it using only thrift-shop finds and the staff is efficient to the point of being unfriendly, but this place is definitely worth a meal, even of only to inhale the ambrosial scent of that sizzling lamb.

After dinner, stop for a shisha (water-pipe of scented tobacco) along the soi and watch the people go by.

Main dishes 80 - 350 baht, no alcohol.
