The food is good and some of them tastes like the original recipe. The side dishes have the same taste and style as it should be. The quality of Kebab was not the best as it was two years ago but the rest of the foods were good enough.

Atmosphere was great, staff was polite and the restaurant was peaceful and quiet. The food was decent, but ground lamb was undercooked. The service was pretty good and the food was authentic from Gilan (north of Iran)

The food was the best "gilaki" food I've ever tried. Even better than north of Iran. The "kabab Torsh" was the best. It was tasty and very tender. The rice was just amazing. If in Tehran, you should try this restaurant ❤️

We were there for a birthday, with 10 of my friends and it was awesome. The staff was very kind and warm and the service was great. The environment is fantastic and has good views. Finally, the food was delicious. If you want to experience northern Iran's cuisine in a luxury atmosphere, you should absolutely try this restaurant.

First of all the location is changed and they are not in the previous address anymore. Right now they are in front of "Aab va Atash" (water and fire) park in Gap-Siavash complex (access from Haghani highway or south Didar street). They serve Gilaki food (north of Iran cuisines) and the taste is really professional. It is better to go... More

The wait staff are very professional and friendly (I can't comment on their English ability as I speak Persian), their food is very tasty (Specially if you love sour food) and the environment is cozy! You will be served Northern Iranian food here, so I definitely recommend going for their local offerings rather than the typical Kababs! You get to... More
