Anar is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is delicious and the atmosphere at the Madinat Souk is fantastic. Portions are big and tastefull.

I thought the food was good- however we both felt our lamb was lacking flavor and the hummus was very bland. I was expecting more from a beautiful location and a Persian restaurant! Totally not worth how much we paid! Wouldn't be back!
