This a nice traditional Resturant that you can enjoy the nice design which is very big. All the time, all days if the week it is crowded. You have fresh bread at this restaurant. I recommend Shandiz kebab and also Chicken kebab. Both are delicious. As appetizer I recommend cheese with fresh vegetables and walnut, Kashk-e-Badenjaan.

I go to this restaurant a few times a year for over the past ten years and the food and the staff as well as the surroundings are simply great. Its not very expensive for what you get. parking is a problem most of the times and this is the only drawback.

Very cosy restaurant where you are seated in small little glass-chalets. In the winter time there is a gas fired heater in the middle and it offers a great atmosphere and cosiness. The food is good too and especially the lamb chops are worth a try. I prefer this over the more crowded 'Darband'

nice place , delicious kebab, but you have to wait 30 min on Fridays for lunch because Iranian people go to restaurant on Fridays most of the time.

Nice facilities; you can either dine in a separate pavilion sitting on carpets and cushions with a fireplace in the middle of the pavilion or you can chose to dine at a normal table. We enjoyed the food in one of the pavilions with food served on a blanket comparable to an indoor picknick. Nice, relaxed atmosphere and attentive staff.... More

Love this place! The food is great, the atmosphere is fun, and it is an upscale venue. My husband and I have taken family members here when we visit Iran. Everyone in our party was pleased with the food. We enjoy dining outdoors, when it is cool in the evening. We both had the fried fish which was just perfect.... More
