“One of the best Arab restaurants in Chennai”
Review of Arab Street

Arab Street
Ranked #3,822 of 6,974 Restaurants in Chennai (Madras)
Restaurant details
Reviewed 29 January 2018

This place is truly one of the best places to go if one wants to check out Arab cuisine and they dish out food to the next best thing if not equally good. The barbecue chicken is excellent, the hummus is one of the best in Chennai, the thoum, the falafel, tabbouleh, Kabsa rice and babaganoush is excellent here. The service here sometimes can be a little slow I guess with so many restaurants exploding all around Chennai getting professional service staff will be very very tough but over all the food is excellent, the ambiance is very nice, the air conditioning is perfect, the portions are reasonable for the price. No wonder that I keep going to this place often.

We went with our family the taste of the food is excellent but the service is worst. we ordered the food and after one hour they served it. we order desert at end and it came after 45 mins. They are charging very high for food then why they dont appoint many staffs for service is big ?.

We went there around 1:30pm for lunch. The restaurant barely had any customers (one table was occupied) yet it took forever for someone to come and take our order. The wait staff was new and had no idea of the food / menu. (E.g. What are the 3 dips on the mezze platter, isn't grilled halumi vegetarian etc). After waiting endlessly, we decided to go elsewhere for a quick bite!

Almost all the food being served here are awesome. Prepared by chef from Lebanon who has a cooking experience of more than 20 years, this place is a must visit if you are looking for authentic Arabic Food. The Mutton Biriyani served here is the ultimate.

After watching Kabali on Day 2, and after an obviously awesome experience,
we visited Arab Street for lunch with my nephews and niece.
We could not have asked for more. Though we were late - 3 pm for lunch,
the staff were very sweet and courteous.
The settings of the restaurant were absolutely reminiscent of my visit to similar places in UAE and Yemen.
The lighting, the arabic music, the interiors - all made the ambience perfect.
The manager kindly suggested his best choices when requested for the Veg recommendations.
Started with the Fattosh for the salads, Hummus with Kuboos and their special Chef's Garlic Cheese Bread which were both a delight to both the visual and culinary senses.
Our orders for the Arabic Veg Biriyani and the Veg Sharwama were fully relished and filling.
Being an ardent, spicy, Indian veg biriyani lover, was worried if the Arabic biriyani will be satisfying. But, the yemeni rice with the sauteed Onions and bell peppers - was delicious and quite filling.
The special Kunafa recommended by the Manager for our desert was brilliant.
Overall, the visit to Arab Street made us very happy and
we are looking forward to our return with more friends and family.
Mr. Abdul, the Manager was very helpful during our visit and his recommendations all were excellent.
We need more of Arab Streets in a few more places at Chennai....
