Really love this place. It has beautiful decor, you would think it is an expensive place to eat but it is very reasonably priced. We all had the mixed meat platter which comes with plenty of rice and chips and delicious meat. Plus salad and endless servings of bread. Service is good. Food is good. No complaints from me!

This Iranian restaurant serving a very nice food starting from the lentil soup to the delicious mix grill specially the shish kofta, different rice varieties, Iranian bread and you can enjoy the special tea with cookies. Good hospitality of the serving staff with nice classic decoration using the hand made Iranian carpets and water currents make it more relaxing.

Shebestan is an underrated Iranian Restaurant. Their authentic Lentil soup is simply delicious and filling. The eggplant and yogurt with spinach appetizers are mouthwatering. However, my favorite dish is their mixed grill (What I like is the the shrimps, chicken and of course the Kofta). They also serve "Dugh" or something like that, traditional yogurt drink with raisins and nuts,... More

Went there with a group of 9 family members on a busy Friday. We sat inside an open room (but ac was not very cool). Food arrived quickly. Quantity was more than enough! And most importantly the food was delicious! I love their Beef Kofta, its soft like butter! On the other hand the decor is old and need improvement.

The ambiance is nice, food taste good like the kebabs. The only thing we are not happy here is that you have to wait for the waiters to notice that you need anything more. I guess you should ask for 1 time what you want, they wont take care if you need another bunch of bread! To have additional order... More

The kabab is amazingly juicy yet well done , the bread is freshly baked and the rice with zefron is yummy as well, there might be some space for a sauce along with the rice (spicy perhaps) just thinking. If you're into trying different types of food just go a head and try this one .
