My in-laws are in town and they are quite adventurous ,in terms of restaurants.

We have a couple that we know they will like:

- Rod Dee Thai
- Angela's
- Kabab & Tandoor
- King Fung
- Ramis

Any others in that vein that we/they should try?

    Maybe shabu-shabu / hot pot?

        Fu Loon, in Malden! You will find many raves about it on these boards. Very exciting authentic Chinese.

          I'd also suggest Solea or Dali for excellent tapas.

            Don't mean to rain on the parade, but I find Solea and Dali to be only fair on the tapas front. MUCH, MUCH better and more authentic chow at either Estragon or Taberna de Haro.

            If they like Middle Eastern, how about Helmands or Baraka Cafe for something slightly different?

            Of it they like Asian, but want a twist how about Tibetan at Rangzen?

              Helmands is a great suggestion, but it serves Afghan food, not middle eastern food.

                Funny - many people would describe Afghanistan as being in the Middle East, with Iran and Pakistan as neighbors. But geography lesson and semantics aside, my limited experiences with middle eastern food does find some similarities with what I had at Helmands, even if not entirely similar to Persian, Syrian, or other similar cuisines. Thus my recommendation for Baraka as well, which is technically Algerian.

              Kathmandu Spice is also awesome.

                If Brookline/Allston is your area of preference, I'd add Dok Bua, Family Restaurant for Turkish and Orinoco for South American

                  I agree with all three of teezeetoo's picks.

                One of the more adventurous meals that I have ever had was "Chef's Whim" dinner at Craigie on Main...My dinner was at 10PM on a Sunday night...Not sure what other hours/nights it is offered...It was a relative "deal" as well, when compared to their other dinner options....Only for the "adventurous eater" though...It was delicious and great fun...Drinks there are very good as well....

                  How about dim sum on Sat. or Sun at Shangri-la in Belmont?
