We rented Bedouin Tent for a private party (45 people) and had a truly wonderful experience. We had use of the beautiful garden and the air conditioned back room and had an unlimited four course buffet consisting of everything on the menu (salads and dips, pitzas, meats, dessert). We'd eaten there many times before and had our own favorites, but definitely discovered some new ones (the lamb platter, for example)! Our guests absolutely raved about the food (a number of whom had never tried Middle Eastern before); among the favorites: the hummus, grape leaves, pita (they make their own--delicious!), pitzas (my own favorite, the lambajin, though there were some excellent other varieties), the merguez (best I've had anywhere, no exaggeration), and the lamb (delicious!!). The service was fantastic--incredibly friendly and so accommodating, and with the BYOB policy, I don't think there could be a more affordable, more delicious, more friendly place for a large party. If you are looking for a fun place for a party (never easy to find in NYC), or simply great Middle Eastern food in a lovely setting, look no further! I could not be more pleased with our experience at Bedouin Tent and will surely be returning again and again!
Pros: Beautiiful garden, can accommodate large groups, excellent food, BYOB
