About Arabesque - Sunderland

For an unusual taste of Egypt in the heart of Sunderland, Arabesque restaurant is without question the place to be. Everything used to furnish and decorate Arabesque has been imported from Egypt, and you’d best believe this authenticity is carried over to food as well. Egyptian cuisine is a fusion of many different cultures and the Arabesque menu reflects this diversity just right. Begin with a combination of hot and cold mezze dishes before moving onto mains of tagine, lamb shank or chicken kabsa. It’s all fresh and it’s all spiced in a unique, intriguing way. You’ll find Arabesque restaurant on High Street West. Reserve a table now.

Never judge a book by its cover....or a restaurant from the outside! Its easy to by pass this restaurant as from the outside it doesn't look very inviting but once inside its a very pleasant surprise. It holds a surprising amount of diners over two floors with enough space to be intimate and yet not feel you're sitting alone. The Egyptian style food is delicious and the portion sizes are more than enough for even the hungriest diner. Service is 1st class and nothing is too much for the staff to do. Highly recommend this hidden gem!
