We were there for dining again yesterday . As usual the combination of Persian herbs, spices , fresh ingredients and good quality of meats do not fail to meet our expectations of Shabestan... Great job to all smiling faces at restaurant... See you again.

In Europe, more specific the Netherlands, I did not find yet a Persian restaurant. The menu showed good looking dishes and the selected duck was a good mixture of exotic and balanced flavours. The home made curry finished the total spectrum of flavors very well.

The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will
take you through the three Quays of the city, each
offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay
features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront
vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while
Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer.
Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a
peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the
