My 100th Review yay! 127881 After attending an Art Exhibit in BGC, me and my friends went to Hossein's to have dinner. It's my first time in this place, so I have zero expectations. We ordered the following:

127880Greek Salad to share: It is quite refreshing. The lemon vinaigrette dressing perfectly blends with the feta and olives. Very mediterranean.

127880 Roti Channai: The waitress recommended we try this, and o m g it is so good. It's not so flat, a bit fluffy and flaky and buttery. I didn't even use the curry sauce because the bread is so good in itself. I want to order another one but my friends might judge me haha.

127880 We had Beef Curry and Chicken Tikka Masala. Maybe I was hungry at that time, but in terms of the sauce, I found them almost similar. It was good but not something I will remember.

127880 Lastly we ordered the Lamb Biryani rice, which is a meal in itself. I love this, except for the raisins haha.

The price is a bit high, but that's something you'll expect from the place. I have a bit of an issue with the menu though, as I was thinking it is an exclusive I dont know, Indian or Persian restaurant. They have such an extensive menu ranging from Western Asian, to Indian, to southeast Asian. It's a bit confusing. Overall, I won't go to this place again unless my friends suggest it first.

The last time I was here was when they were still in the Strip. Wow, ages ago. They just opened then, BGC didn’t even have High Street and was only an eighth of its development now. I’m surprised I’ve never returned considering how much I love Middle Eastern food. I know the H dines here occasionally. I have been to Gilak several times though when we used to frequent Greenbelt for dinner.

On my first visit here I was asked to try the Brain Palak, which was kept secret to me as to what the dish was. The nerd in me new what cerebrum on a plate was and I politely passed because I just couldn’t. Still can’t. It’s literally chopped brain, grilled maybe. No sauce at all. This dish is still on the current menu for about 500 pesos, or you can opt to eat a fried brain sandwich for 250.

Here’s what we ordered:

Roti Channai. 125. This is a sweet flatbread or flat puff pastry. Had a crisp exterior for that little crunch. Came with a mild curry. This is better than what I’ve eaten in Singapore where this is very common. I will be ordering this every time I am here.

Hummus 260 + Pita Bread 35. Traditional taste, big serving. We ordered 4 pitas.

Beef Kebab with Saffron Basmati Rice. 570. I find it odd why the beef is under a mound of rice. Maybe it’s a Persian thing? The 2 skewers were sizable, beef was tender. Rice was fragrant. Wasn’t too dry for basmati. They sell the rice grains too if you would like to cook some at home.

Ground lamb. About 600. Sorry I don’t remember what this is called. We just randomly picked a lamb dish because we love lamb. It looks so plain but it really is tasty. I made myself a wrap with hummus, basmati and this one.

We wanted to order a saffron fish dish but all their fish dishes were unavailable.

The menu is very intimidating. There’s a lot... several pages... I mean a long list of food most are unfamiliar with, especially since the average Pinoy is only aware of kebab and shawarma. There are some pictures on the menu but you’ll have to ask the servers about most of the items. Primarily a Persian, Arabian and Indian restaurant, they also offer South East Asian food which was a bit confusing - roti channai, tom yum?

It’s a bit pricey but you get your money’s worth with the serving size and the quality of the food. If you compare the size of one stick of their beef kebab to some hole-in-the-wall restaurant you’ll see what I’m taking about. I even find the dishes very mild in flavor. Decor is something to look at, very traditional, set with dim yellow lights. We stayed in one of their booths that you can close off with the sheer curtains. All the patrons dining with us were foreigners - Indians, Egyptians, and Malaysians. Service was so-so, not so welcoming but all our needs were met.

If you love Middle Eastern food then this is worth a visit. If you’re not much of a fan just stick to the popular cheap places. I definitely won't wait this long again to come back here.

The most expensive kebab I have ever tried! The price itself was detrimental to my enjoyment of the food. The taste was nothing spectacular; in fact, the beef was a bit too tough. I think of kebabs as inexpensive late-night eats and I'd rather keep it that way.

those lamb ribs are worth writing home
about. their roti canai is a tad sweeter than what i remember from wolfing them down in my childhood but texture and nostalgic factor climb the charts. i skip the curry-esque sauce that comes with it and savor it solo. forget about whats around you and concentrate on that plate. totally worth it in my humble book.

I had my first EVER date here and was absolutely won over by the food. I didn't even know I loved middle eastern dishes but after eating, I knew for sure. The kebab was the best and the saffron rice was perfect with it.:D I forgot what the other things we ordered were but everything was good so I don't think it really matters--having said that, that is indicative of a truly good restaurant. So kudos to the crew!

Having visitors from Singapore prompted me to look for a halal restaurant in the metro. Several people pointed me in the direction of Hossein. I looked it up on looloo and it had an average of five stars! It was obviously a sign we had to go.

We ordered a kebab platter, beef masala, naan, basmati rice, and other cliches. The kebab platter was a winner amongst winners. The beef was flavorful without being overpowering. A sign told me that the basmati rice was "first class" and no one could disagree. I sampled everyone's orders and I enjoyed each dish! Even my parents who aren't fond of Persian/Arabian/Indian food loved it!

Everything was perfect except for one thing. According to our friends, real halal restaurants don't serve alcohol. Our table was right in front of a bar with Jim, Jack, and Johnny. But hey. I'm not Muslim so I would totally go back.

My bestfriend's birthday dinner, since she's been craving for kebab. This is the place to be.

Let's start with the roti with curry dip. Sarap! Every bite we took, we could not stop saying it. Lol. It goes well with the yogurt shake they ordered. Not me though, yogurts aren't my thing. Haha.

We were a group of 9 hungry folks. Group order! 2 kebab platters for the win! Each platter had beef chelo, beef kebab, chicken kebab, shrimp kebab, and lamb! Man oh man. One of the best kebabs I've had here in Manila.

To have a balance diet, we got salad too. Chicken salad. Sorry forgot the name. But it's so darn good too! The balance of greens, meat, and dressing was perfect. 128522

I'd definitely go back here whenever the kebab craving strikes. Be prepared to shell out a few bucks though, coz the price is no joke hehe ;)

Mezze plate as a starter was pretty good, tasted authentic. Liked the hummus. Then main course was kebab, disappointing. A row of meat covered by a mountain of rice, really? See picture. Service was poor.
