There are people who wish the Arabian Nights would not be discovered. As it is, it serves some of the best Middle Eastern food in town, at low prices, with no difficulty getting a table and no necessity to rush. The menu is similar to other Middle Eastern restaurants - hummous, baba ghanouj, kebabs, stuffed vegetables and such, with a few curries. But since it is Arabic, the food is spicier, more peppery than at other Middle Eastern restaurants. Although the place has been recently redecorated, it is still rather simple, with a tiled entry and wallpaper in an Arabic sort of motif, relieved by travel posters and red curtains. The effect is simple, clean, and vaguely attractive. The service is similar; it does the job, but you don't much notice it. On the other hand, you will remember the food. Baba ghanouj is peppery and tantalizing. The yogurt tastes fresh. And the parsley, onion, cracked wheat and lemon salad known as tabbula, is irresistible. With the appetizers, warm, quartered loaves of flat bread, called pita, are served. Among main dishes, the shish kebab is tender and spicy, faintly peppered and strongly charcoal-flavored. Similar is the broiled chicken, fragrant from cinnamon as well as other spices. Curries are also delectable, not too hot, and slightly sweet from cinnamon. Or try a combination plate, showing off the rich stuffed cabbage, the charcola-grilled kifta, and such. Even the rice is special being very buttery and served with a pitcher of cinnamon-scented sauce. Salad and pastries don't live up to the rest of the meal, although the cigar-shaped pastry named burma is more successful than the rest. End the meal, of course, with Turkish coffee.
