Sahara  


Vegetable platters at Sahara.

Sahara is pure Eritrean. Here, you sit low to the ground (it's traditional) and sample zinghini (spicy meat or lamb on the spit) or spriss (tender veal medallions), accompanied by abundant vegetable platters. (You can also go the all-veggie route.) There's myess, the traditional honey wine, as well as Italian offerings. Don't go if you're a cutlery freak. Prices rarely break the €25 mark. — Cristina Polli

Sara Iran  


Abgousht at Sara Iran.

A recent arrival on the Rome scene, Iranian émigrés Lili and Faramar sought to give a taste of home. That they do, offering quality kebabs and impressive use of spices. The celokebbab, skewered veal and assorted vegetables, is delectable. With that you get rice or l'abgousht, a stew of marrow, beans, and spices. Live music on Saturday, belly dancing on Sunday. Near Piazza Flaiano in Tufello. — David R. Deropolous

Shanti  


Verdure in yogurt sauce.

Solid Indian and Pakistani spot in Prati (near Ottaviano Metro), Shanti does first-rate tandoori and good curry. Staff is cordial and engaging, though inner décor is overdone — unlike the food. Try polpette di verdure in yogurt sauce, which has traces of spice and sweetness. Good for vegetarian diners. — Cristina Polli

Surya Mahal  


Piazza Trilussa Indian.

This gracious Indian venue — tandoori oven fare — happily finds itself in a lovely Trastevere location, complete with a romantic summer garden. Surya Mahal is tasty, with an invitingly quiet ambience. Be careful, though: this is not an economy joint, however quaint-looking. Prices can push past €50 a head — painful since this once started as a reasonable Rome "cultural club." — Cristina Polli

Taiyo  


Taiyo tempura.

Minimalist Japanese immensely popular among the Rome crowd. The staples are all here: sushi, sashimi, and tempura. There’s a tatami room downstairs, but you need to ask for it. They also have a Chinese menu, though best to stick with what you know. — Cristina Polli

Thai Inn  


Satay on the Gianicolo.

Located on the slopes of Monte Verde Nuovo and (sadly) convenient only to residents of the Gianicolo. The ownership is Malay, but the food is dominated by Thai specialties. The tom ka gai (coconut chicken soup) is light, the chicken satay soft and flavorful, the Thai beef salad is deft and light. Thai Inn serves most Thai staples with an ample wine list. — Cristina Polli

Thien Kim  


Perhaps the best ethnic in Rome.

Arguably the best ethnic dining experience in Rome. Exceptionally delicate, authentic Vietnamese food at not cheap but reasonable prices centrally located by the Tiber near Piazza Farnese. Try the ravioli (dumplings), fresh spring roulades, and meat and chicken in satay sauce. In the winter, go for phò, a soup based on meat, fish and vegetables. You can make a meal in two from half-a-dozen appetizers alone. Beef in citronelle sauce and all curries are top notch. The manner of the place is stylish and sophisticated, giving it a Parisian-Vietnamese flavor. Family owners settled in Rome from Hue in 1975, as Vietnam descended into postwar chaos. If you don't speak Italian, French will help. About 40 covers, so be sure to book in advance for a large party. Dining only, with reservations taken beginning at 6 p.m. — Cristina Polli

Yaun Yuan  


Hot and sour on the Salaria.

Like most Rome Chinese joints, Yaun Yuan is tailored to marginally-adventurous Italians, but it's at least closer to the real thing. Check out the Peking duck that melts in your mouth and the ravioli that beg seconds. One flaw (and a common one in Rome) is too much garlic applied to entrees. Located on the city stretch of the Via Salaria, near Parioli. — Cristina Polli

Zenobia  


Among the tops in Rome.

On a side street off Piazza Vittorio, the heart of Rome’s immigrant neighborhood, this outstanding Lebanese-Syrian restaurant sets a delicious standard for ethnic cuisine in the capital. It’s simple and serious cooking. Choose from traditional appetizers like humus and falafel followed by vegetarian couscous. Outside seating in summer. Belly dancing on Friday evenings. Private catering and take-out service. Closed Sunday lunch. — David R. Deropolous
