This is my 3rd time in Hatem. Great food for very reasonable price. Hatem Mix platter is my favorite. Last time I tried the combo appetizer, it was really good. I also ordered bamya with beef , it tasted as if it was home made. All rices are great (white/yellow).

Recognising that we weren't sure of our way around the menu the waiter was very helpful. I fancied a kebab. Not sure if that's what I ended up with but it tasted good, was lean and tender and rather large! No complaints there. A taster dish of local cheese and side salad was a welcome free addition. My wife had... More

Nice selection of Iranian / local dishes, a cut above normal Mall fare and good value. Plenty of seating so easy to get a place (at least when we were there).

Not familiar with Iranian restaurants, we were surprised being placed in a separate room. Privacy here is guaranteed and it took a little while before we realised we had to ring a bell for a waiter to come. It felt strange how we were talked to from behind the curtain, but this seems part of the tradition. Food was simply... More

We visited this place on impulse as we had never tried Iranian food. The restaurant seemed a little tired but big choice on menu, lots of kebabs of different types. When we ordered the waiter brought us flat bread and a salad platter, and the food we ordered was tasty, and we enjoyed it. Wish TA has a good category,... More

I went to Hatam at Marina Mall for lunch. The restaurant is on the second floor. By mall standards it is quite a large restaurant with 20 to 30 tables, with seating inside, outside (here outside refers to outside the restaurant but on a balcony within the mall), and cubicles/family rooms with closable curtains. Food is Arabic and Iranian food.... More
