The Indian and Middle Eastern specialty of biryani (rice that is mixed with a combo of meat and vegetables that have been cooked in a spice hearty assortment of cardamom, bay leaves, coriander, mint, cinnamon, saffron, ginger, garlic, and onions), is known in Thai as Khao Mok Gai, and nowhere does it better than this rather refined and cheap little hole in the wall restaurant. The mutton biryani is superb, no surprise, as the owner of Home Cuisine started out as a goat butcher, and obviously had a pretty good sense of what a top cut of meat was. While the chicken and fish biryani are also excellent, the mutton here is on another level of degustation, and makes the Khao Mok a lot closer to the form of the dish that one finds in India and on across to Iran.

- Best Value, Homestyle, Bangrak's Best Restaurants: "Home Cuisine Islamic is slightly hidden and tricky to get to if you are coming for the first time, and most taxi drivers don't know the area either. Your best bet is to go down the soi off Charoen Krung where the Mandarin Oriental is located and turn right just before the hotel and river, onto a small soi that runs up to Soi 36 and the restaurant. If you get lost, just ask for the French Embassy, as Home Cuisine is just across from its parking lot."
- Recommended as Best Value Because: Where else can you get delicious goat biryani in Thailand? 'Nuff said.
- Best for Homestyle Because: For home style Indian and Thai cooking and Bangkok's best biryani, one cannot beat Home Cuisine Islamic.
- Best for Bangrak's Best Restaurants Because: The biryani here, especially the mutton, is the best in Bangkok and well worth a trip
