Restaurant Shishah Nasir: Know more about our history
Restaurant Shishah Nasir is the home of authentic middle-eastern and South Asian food in the district of Soi Nana Nuea, Watthana Bangkok. Our goal is to provide customers with food that will remind them of home even if they’re in a different country. Aside from our delicious Middle-Eastern cuisine, we also have Indian and Thai to diversify our menu options.
Before we became the restaurant we are today, our place was a humble establishment founded in 1986. The owner, Mr Said, took care of his employees and developed his recipe that was soon recognized by Arabs and Thai locals in the area. When the business grew, it expanded into a 2nd-floor building with a beautiful Arab style interior.
Over the years, the restaurant developed the menu further and included selected cuisines from Indian, Egypt, and Thailand. Additionally, we also added seafood dishes for our customers who want to try out different dishes.
Aside from locals, travellers from different parts of the world also grew fond of our rare and authentic dishes. Most of the time, we serve globetrotters from the United States and Europe. Our best season is always the summer because Thailand is a melting pot of tourists during that time of the year.
Our dedication and love for food are some of the reasons why the restaurant grew into popularity. We carefully select our cooks before we let them in our kitchen. To make sure that the food we serve will leave a lasting impression, we teach our staff to cook it with love and precision.
Furthermore, aside from providing good food, we also ensure that our staff attend to all our customers’ needs and suggestions. So, if you’re looking for food that tastes like home, our doors at Restaurant Shishah Nasir are open to serve you!
