Kebabs (Schwarmas), Indian Food, Etc?

Recommended Posts

If you want good arabic food just go to Beirut in Sukhumvit Soi 2.

And for indian fast food, go to Indian Chaat in Sukhumvit Soi 23.

I ate kebab in a shop in Ramkhamhaeng, not too far from the mall Bang Kapi, that's owned by a foreigner and his Thai wife. It was fantastic and they put on some amazing sauces like mint yoghurt , garlic sauce and a hot chilli sauce that smelt and tasted amazing, and you can buy hummus to dip your kebab in. And, I think they also sell Indian and Thai food as well as kebabs.

I can't remember exactly what soi it was on but it shouldn't be too far from you. I will definitely go there again soon and I'll give you the directions.

You were right Su, the sauces they put on the kebabs are very delicious. I had the chicken tikka madras as well, with pilau rice and a naan bread, and it was very good. Just like eating an Indian from a good restaurant in the UK. My wife also had the fried chicken and cashew nuts and that was also very good.

The place is in a very good location next to the lake and there are quite a few foreigners drinking a few beers a long with their kebabs and indian food socialising, so it's a good place to meet other people.

I'm going there tonight to try the fish and chips and maybe take home with me a big tub of their hummus and pita bread. smile.gif

there is now a Beirut Restaurant in the basement of the Ploenchit Center near the entrance to Villa market...the food's OK but what can you expect in BKK?...they offer a nan type bread instead of arabic bread which looks like an arabic bread that I tried to make at home...someone really oughta open an arabic bakery in BKK with fresh bread and lovely arabic sweets; baklava, etc...they'd do a roaring business...

anyone notice the shwarma stall at the entrance to NEP?, the wife got me a chicken and a lamb (!) that I ate the next day... she was out with the family at the soi Nana food stalls and I had already

eaten at the restaurant above...not bad as leftovers...

right now I'm in HCM trying to get a flight out to the north central coastal provinces and there have been cancelled flights do to typhoons...last night I ate at a turkish/mid east place across from the Sheraton front entrance and the hummous was the best that I've had since Jeddah...but the tabbouleh was a failure (with green pepper and onions???, get outta here) and the chicken iskender was an inedible mishmash...no decent bread either...but not bad for the hummous alone...

For some reason,Suraj has made , I think 5 posts ,ALL promoting one (1) restaurant,Each one stating the name and address Of that specific restaurant.Why ? What barrow is he pushing?..Soi 3 is solely for Middle Eastern food. Little India caters for authentic Indian food .It caters to a 99.99% Indian clientele.Rarely will you see a farang eating there. So, prices are from the cheap ,Up .Quality , the same.There would be about 20 restaurants in an area about 100 metres by 60 metres. Many are located in Small lanes, not really Sois, as they are too short. Fun to explore.
