At first glance, Arabic eateries seem dime-a-dozen in Chennai. Most of them are fungible Shawarma and Grill establishments, churning out better Malayali dishes than Arabic fare. Tucked away in Kodambakkam, however, Arab Street stays true to its name. Interiors are fashioned like an alfresco Middle-Eastern diner with wrought-iron benches and street lamps. The effect is novel, in spite of little natural lighting, but the wallpapers have begun to peel over time. I begin with a 'Mezze Platter' of Pita with neat servings of 'Moutabel', 'Baba Ghanoush' and 'Hummus'. Freshly baked, 'Fluffy Pita' soaks up Olive Oil as it lifts the creamy dips. The punchy, distinct and flavourful dips are a far cry from uniform cakey plaster that usually goes around. I enjoy the warm richness of my 'Grilled Haloumi', and the peppery tender 'Laham Meshwi' (lamb chops). Dessert is the rich, milky 'Umm Ali' after a cup of 'Turkish Apple Tea'.
We showed them the booking. They said they are not linked with you. As it was eid day they actually didn't have dining only take away. We showed the booking details which was confirmed and after a long argument and insisted we are coming from a long distance they accepted. But the ac was not working properly. Food was good but costly. We had to eat without proper ventilation. Suffocating.
You may wonder what is the relation between Arabian Cuisine and Ice Cream. It just made all the short comings better at this place. Mutton soup is good. some of the desserts are not available on that day. If you have any specific Item you want to taste, check with them before going there. Service is very slow. So go early Order and wait for the food to arrive. Enjoy your meal. Don't miss the Mango Ice cream.
We all love food. We go searching for multi-cuisine restaurant so that we get to taste food from various parts of the world. When I was invited for a food blogger meet to Arab Street, I knew that I am going to taste something really good. We got introduced to Mr.Hameed who owns the restaurant and setting up of this place is really an inspiring one since Mr. Hameed has been living in Singapore for few years now and is the owner of renowned “Suvai Masala” over there which has got the award from the Food Ministry of Singapore. He had been to various parts of the world and has tasted different cuisine and found that Chennai, his home town lacked authentic Arabic food. Hence he had been to Middle East to specifically get to know the taste and ingredients and had hired cook from Lebanon who has 30+ years of experience in cooking. So those were couple of mandatory selfies to start with. We were served with watermelon juice as the welcome drink. After the welcome drink, we got to taste the mind blowing Cream of Mushroom Soup. When I say “mind blowing”, I really mean it as you need to taste it yourself to agree to my point. The interiors were classic and designed as per Arabic Theme including the music that was played which belonged to Arabic. The event which began at 7:30PM came to an end only at 9:30PM and in the mean time, we got to taste so many dishes including Prawns, kebabs, sausages, Pizzas and Chicken which you can see below: As you can see above, even the forks are so intricately designed and I got to learn that the entire interior was designed and conceptualised by Mr.Hameed himself. Finally we got to taste the best of all – Mutton Biriyani. Never in my life, I had tasted mutton which is so tender and delicate. It just melted in my mouth giving me an ever awesome and delightful memory which for sure, I would tell/share the news with all my friends because to me, an item like this should never be missed in one’s life time. Doesn’t it look tempting? It tastes even more than this amazing looks. My takeaway and Rating for this restaurant: 5/5. Neatly maintained and great ambience Good quality and tasty food. Friendly suppliers/waiters. Nominal Pricing – you need not have to burn your wallet for such an awesome food. All I can say is, if you need to taste authentic Arabic Food, this is the most preferred and best restaurant in Chennai you could go without giving a second thought. I can safely say the tagline #GulfInChennai is pretty apt to this. If you are a foodie and looking for a change, this is the place you need to go on your next visit. Arab Street is located in 14th Avenue, Ashok Nagar – just before Samiyar Mattam – enroute from Power House to Ashok Nagar.
The food is tasty and order comes so fast also.prices are also not too high.good place for food lovers
Food was excellent - the lamb chops, Omani prawns and Mandi rice were delicious. The shawarma was a little disappointing but the coal-grilled chicken looked good. However, the service was a little slow, our order for a pizza was also messed up so we ended up waiting for over 40 minutes for their ‘speciality’ pizza.
