Pain makes gain! It is not easy to go to that area, not easy to find a parking lot, either. There is no parking lot and very little walking space even! There are long lines of people standing outside the restaurant to enter and order their meal. But the food tastes excellent and the atmosphere and staff are good.

The quality of food is good, the price is cheap, but you should eat fast and give the table to the hungry crowd waiting around

The restaurant in the main bazaar is not correctly located on the trip advisor map. It took me a bit of time to find it and it will be difficult to find for a foreign visitor. The place is heaving and after all the great anticipation, the food was good but nothing out of ordinary.

An authentic Persian restaurant at the heart of Tehran's Grand Bazar. Great food has been served in this place for about 80 years.

Its prices are reasonable for the foods (based on quality) in Tehran. It is a bit crowded and after 1 pm you should usually stay in line for find a place to sit. It... More
