Best part of it is that you can dine outside in a lovely environment. Food is OK and coffee and tea are OK - prices are what you pay for this type of cafe in Tehran. Lovely both during the day and in the evening.

One of the cutest cafe spot in Tehran. The atmosphere is very relaxing. Offering good food and beverages but best best offer of Chai bar is its atmosphere. Recommended to visit especially spring and summer time !
