Great Lamb kabob and amazing ground beef "koobideh" skewer. The food is always great. The service is always spot on. The restaurant is always so accommodating of our many "asks". I love the crispy rice "tadig" with fesenjoon(pomegranate walnut stew). Not to miss the kashe...More

I went there for dinner with friends and we really enjoyed it. The lamb shank was delicious and so was the rice. I tried some of my wife's rice with beef and it was also delicious

We had lunch in Yas and the food was reasonably good. The Koobideh was well seasoned and the bone in chicken was tasteful. It is a bit far from the city centre but I will try other Persian restaurants before I recommend this one.

Came on a recommendation from a friend from Penang, a place full of discriminating foodies. Ground beef kabab was juicy beyond my expectation. The proprietor-looking lady's recommendation to mix a little butter with the saffron rice made for a very flavorful meal. Finished with a...More
