Where to order Middle Eastern food in Bangkok

Bangkok’s craving for Middle Eastern cuisine is unlike any other.

Grilled meats with a little char, a little garlic, the freshness of parsley and lemon juice, breads (oh breads!) Like no other.

Here, we’ve rounded up some of the best places to get your fix of hummus, shawarma, tabbouleh, or baklava. Although many of these restaurants are Lebanese, it’s important to recognize that Middle Eastern cuisine covers a lot more than Lebanon (although it is unquestionably very popular). All available for delivery as we dive into another partial lockdown, order your favorite Middle Eastern foods from these places below.

Beirut is a big name in Bangkok for Lebanese food lovers and one of the city’s most beloved spots. They have been around for a long time, with several branches across town. Here you’ll find largely a Lebanese menu (and a few other Mediterranean dishes), covering a huge selection of starters, salads, soups, sandwiches, grilled meats, and sweets. They also have a lot of vegetarian items and combination plates. If you don’t know where to start, start here.

Al Saray was very busy when dinners were still allowed, but now with the ban they still have a lot to offer for delivery. They serve both Lebanese and Indian cuisine, not so much as a fusion, but rather as two separate entities. It’s great for those days when you can’t really decide which cuisine you prefer, and is great for those who like gulab jamun for dessert. Right now they are also offering some great combo sets at great prices.

Another extremely popular Lebanese hangout, Nadimos opened in 2009 and has since become a favorite with many people who enjoy shisha on the terrace or family meals inside the restaurant. Taking this friendly neighborhood vibe to the next level, Nadimos specializes in only Lebanese dishes, many of which are familiar (tabbouleh, baba ghanoush, etc.), while others are less well known (Lebanese coffee and rI am bil hallib pudding). It is worth a try for all Lebanese food lovers.

A relatively new addition to the Middle Eastern food scene in Bangkok, Hummus Bangkok opened in the city late last year, following the great success of its Chiang Mai branch. The restaurant pays great attention to detail, aiming to offer Middle Eastern cuisine with “a modern twist”. This is evident in their use of fresh produce and health conscious recipes, as well as their wide selection of vegetarian options. Highlights include the roasted cauliflower, falafel, quinoa ‘iron salad’ and, of course, their namesake hummus.

Have you ever eaten Egyptian food? And that also next to Indian cuisine? Otherwise, try Arabesque. This restaurant highlights the two cuisines in delicious harmony, with particular emphasis on kebabs. For those who are already familiar with Lebanese cuisine, this is an interesting way for your palate to explore authentic Egyptian flavors, through fattah mozza lamb, cabbage mahashi, and okra tagine. Order them with your favorite Indian dishes.

Hummus is probably the most popular dish in the Middle East, and if you’re looking for a place that truly gives it its undivided attention, look no further than Hummus Heads. The innovative restaurant specializes in Lebanese cuisine and offers a wide variety of hummus to choose from, often including ingredients you won’t find anywhere else. Very colorful – and very ‘grammable’.
