Nadimos


BANGKOK AMAZING GOURMET
.


Nadimos

We went to a new middle-eastern restaurant last night, the ambiance was decent but not the food!


1. hummus was too thick and not smooth in texture
2. fattoush was fresh and taste fine


3. falafel was bland and lacked of the good spiced chickpeas taste
4. barbeque chicken was dried and didn't have any taste of chicken


Nadimos at Baan Silom

5. shawarma with lamb was too dried
6. arayis with mousse of lamb was definitely star of the night


7. pickled vegetables
8. fresh vegetables with dips


Nadimos Lebanese Restaurant **3/4
Baan Silom
Bangrak, Bangkok 10500

Open daily 11am - 11pm
Pay (food only for two): around THB 700

Often passed by this area but didn't get any try at any of the restaurants there. I guess soi 3 Sukhumvit area is more appealing. So are the prices of this restaurant similar to those of Suk.?

yes the price is cheap (under B1,000 for all u c in the post) but the decor is better and clean, however the food very so-so

Suk.3-5 is much much better in term of food taste

More good photos here.
But I am not crazy about Middle Eastern good though.

SS, have you ever been brought to Suk 3-5? Wow.. the potato stuffed with minced lamb is superb! I think not too many enjoy Middle Eastern food. So far only TC and I like going there. Most of my friends would turn on a "?" on their faces when I mentioned about that.

Stella doesn't like food that hv a strong-taste, so in prejudice she refuse middle-eastern and indian food, to indian food yes it is quite strong-taste, but to middle-eastern food it isn't, the food is full of aromatic, some middle-eastern food can be very light too

btw, 2 guys in bangkok also love middle-eastern food, they r mr. bug and mr. bee :)

I would recommend for those who don't like specific cuisine, try something which are incredibly good from a good friend's recommendation. I don't like lamb but I would like to try it and see if I would get impressed with the professional skill of the chef (Again, Le Normandie did impress a lot with their lamb rack!). I don't like some herbs especially used in Middle Eastern food but if the chef handles it well, it would turn out as something surprisingly good.

You are right guys, I don't care for lamb and I don't care for Middle Eastern food although I can eat it. But in fact, I eat this every other month with my customers or co-workers in old Pasadena(when they initiate this food). I really don't hate this food. But they will not be on my preferred list.
I do like Indian food a lot, especially the bread(Roti). But Indian dishes are usually have strong taste and they are quite salty too. I like mild taste and mile curry(that is why I like Japanese curry). Everyone has his own preference.

Soi Nana has more authentic Middle Eastern food. Price are very reasonable. I tried a Egyptian restaurant on the main road of Soi Nana with a big frontage in the Citi Mansionm forgot the name. The briyani with lamb is the best I have ever had. 4 of us with 6 main dishes only costs about Baht 700, very inexpensive and good.

Yes, some shops on soi Nana are very inexpensive. Last time we also paid around B7-800 for 4-5 dishes.
