Restaurant review: Al Majlis, Bangkok

September 11, 2009

AlMajlis1

Do you want to have an atmospheric evening on a Friday night in Bangkok (actually any night will do)? If the answer is yes, then Al Majlis (actually the full name is Al Majlis Tearoom) is absolutely the right place for you. The Moroccon-inspired tearoom is the perfect place in busy Bangkok to relax and plunge in a long lost dream of a “Thousand an one night” experience.

I very much like the interior of the restaurant. Moreover, in the inner courtyard tent-like structures have been erected which remind me of a “caravanserai”. The sofa beds are very comfortable; it feels like sinking into a divan, a “Thousand and one night”-experience.

Needless to say the food is excellent (I love couscous), the service friendly and there is also a wine list which offers sufficient choice. Moreover, I just love the design and the furnishings; it gives you the illusion that you went away, far away, traveled in time to a leisurely place where the hassle of the modern world canot reach you. You order a water pipe, a shisha, and just relax.
