Eastern Nights Restaurant/Hooka Cafe Astoria

Posted on March 4, 2008. Filed under: Astoria, Middle Eastern |

2535 Steinway St, Queens, NY 11103, USA – Astoria (718) 204-760

Steinway street is well known for its wide variety of middle eastern eateries, but Eastern Nights is one that stands out from the rest. The quaint cafe and new dining area can be spotted miles away.  A human size replica of the Statue of Liberty and a palm tree made out of Christmas lights adorn the sidewalk, drawing patrons in at all hours. The decor is almost as eclectic as the menu. Arabic music videos play endlessly on the big screen tv. Egyptian inspired paintings bedeck the walls while the east-meets-west menu arouses taste-buds. Cardamom infused Arabic lasagna (without tomato sauce) gives a traditional Italian feast an unusual kick. The Viagra sandwich and stuffed pigeon are only for the brave. The arrangement of the chicken and lamb entrees finds the hearty meats on a plate in a bed of rice with a few scattered french fries on top. Although the choices are quite inventive, the flavor is more than adequate and the portions are filling. There are a variety of teas and exotic hot drinks to sip- as the restaurant does not serve alcohol. Eastern Nights is a festive yet cozy place to brings friends, as the restaurant welcomes everyone. These days- the cafe seems to draw young adults and families of all races. Be sure to check out their back yard patio in the spring/summer. Order a delicious meal, light up a flavored hookah and don’t be afraid to relax and stay a while.
