  • Hossein’s Persian Kebab in Makati: Your Gateway to Middle Eastern Cuisine
  • Taking you to a Persian, Arabic, Indian and East Mediterranean vibe is this vibrant and detailed interior of Hossein’s Persian Kebab at Makati Avenue. Established in 1985 and with over 4 branches across Metro Manila, Hossein’s Persian Kebab was one of the first to pioneer the Middle Eastern cuisine restaurant in the Philippines.

    The first branch was opened in 1985 on Jupiter St. Makati, even if it only had five tables. Hossein’s later moved to the ground floor of LKV Building in Makati Ave, which is now dedicated for shisha or tobacco. The 2nd floor, which was just renovated in March 2018, is the main restaurant, with layout and design done by their son who is an architect.

    The walls of the stairs leading to the 2nd floor were painted more than 20 years ago by a British painter, and was made to look like a Persian rug.
