The place is authentic. The architecture, decoration and design is impressive. You may also have a visit in the hotel and the beautiful garden. The standard of the restaurant is obviously high but I did not like the arrogant manner of the waitresses. We were there for a lunch with a group of 15 people, the quality of the dishes... More

If you want to taste traditional Iranian food, then this is THE place to dine. Crowded most days, but the wait is worthwhile because the dishes are sooooo heavenly tasting. There isn't a particular dish which I can claim to be my favourite 'coz on each occasion, I try something new - and never get disappointed. A little on the... More

Good traditional food. You'll enjoy the food if you have a reservation and you can find a parking spot. The restaurant itself is a crowded one!

This is a unique experience you would not regret during your visit to Tehran. The restaurant is decorated in the form of traditional "sofrekhaneh" style and among this group of restaurants it is one of the roomiest and most elegant. The price is rather expensive but the food quality and service are very good. But the main reason you would... More

I was here 14 years ago and I had a very nice remebrance of it. Yesterday, however, it was a deception. Food is overpriced and quality is standard-low. The Persian music is ok for a while but the whole night long becames difficult to bear. It's true everybody comes here once at least when in Tehran and there were many... More

The restaurant serves typical iranian dishes in a typical setting. You may choose to have a regular table or a traditional one (which is much stressful on the knees :) ). I happened to visit when there was a live music session, playing iranian songs. Must admit that I have enjoyed the food, the music and also the overal ambience... More
