Middle Eastern Restaurants in Beijing

Beijing's Middle Eastern eateries will surprise you with their depth of taste and broadness of selection. With everything from Pakistani to Moroccan, to Persian, Turkish and Afghan, you'll find Middle-Eastern treats to delight and wow you.

A crowd favorite is 1001 Nights, where you'll get entertained as well as fed with belly dancers on stage and delightful hummus, kebabs, rice dishes and delicious salads. You'll want to return almost as soon as you leave. The staff are friendly and attentive and the dancing in the evenings makes this a fun outing with friends. Afunti Restaurant offers similar entertainment along with prime Middle Eastern cuisine and fancy dining. You'll adore the decor and return time and again for the delicious food.

Try the Moroccan cuisine at Cafe Sambal and Hong Bin Lou, the delightfully spicy side dishes are what attract the crowds, though the decor and Chinese characteristics make the restaurants broadly appealing.

For Muslim food, Crescent Moon and Xinjiang Islam offer delicious lagman noodles, lamb kebabs and tasty onion-based side dishes. Affordable, delicious and centrally located these Middle Eastern eateries offer more than your standard nan, lamb and lagman specials.
