Restaurant details
Reviewed 16 March 2013

The restaurant is one of the outdoor places in the main night market. It's in front/beside the "lady-boy" cabaret. The restaurant itself is divided into a "halal" sitting area and a non-halal area by a picket fence. That allows you to have a beer if you wish in the "non-halal" half! As with many "Middle-Eastern" restaurants in Thailand, they serve Pakistani, Indian, Arabic, and Thai food. We tried both the Indian and Arabic and both were quite good and very good value. The owner is friendly and can be easily approached for any questions/guidance. BUT, the real plus is that, if you arrive in the few hours before the cabaret show, you can watch the "lady-boys" parade back and forth from the cabaret while they are drumming up business for the upcoming show. A really unique experience and shouldn't be missed! Place also offers free delivery and takes party orders.
