The garden is nice and though it is surrounded by apartments it feels secluded having tall old trees. There is an outdoor dining area which is perfect for a good weather day or even a cold one as they have heaters available. There is a selection of traditional tea and Iranian breakfast menu with a variety of egg options. My... More

Almost everything on the menu is great ( the hot chocolate is an exception) , the service is friendly and professional and the ambience is superb , the best in Tehran . Pricewise expect to pay 25€ for a sandwich , drink and pastry... More

Best part of it is that you can dine outside in a lovely environment. Food is OK and coffee and tea are OK - prices are what you pay for this type of cafe in Tehran. Lovely both during the day and in the evening.

One of the cutest cafe spot in Tehran. The atmosphere is very relaxing. Offering good food and beverages but best best offer of Chai bar is its atmosphere. Recommended to visit especially spring and summer time !

Chai Bar is a pleasant cafe located next to Iran Calligraphers Association. Both places are definitely worth a visit. We visited the restaurant for dinner and the quality of food was good. The sandwiches (steak and cheese, and chicken tandoori) were very tasty and so was their fatoosh salad. The service is fast and efficient.

The location is like the norm of many other places in Tehran only accessible by Taxi or your own car, especially since it's in an uphill alley in northern town. But it is definitely worth it. The Chai Bar is right inside the public garden of Iran's Calligraphers Association and so you can also enjoy some nature in the courtyard... More
