This place is famous with the Iranians because of the show. It was nice to see people cheer and encourage their favorite singers. The food was very good and the main course includes a salad bar. After the main course, fruits. All through the meal, unlimited tea. So, even if it is on the "pricey" side, it is an evening... More

We had dinner in this restaurant with all my family and we had a lovely time thanks to the live traditional Persian music. The bands were very good. The food is ok. You go more there for the live music and ambiance than the food. We had a very lovely and fun dinner there. The staff was very nice.

This is one of the first traditional fancy restaurants in tehran in Gandi st. With nice live music and beautiful decoration. The service was relatively poor. They offer larg variety of Iranian kebab but very expensive. The quality/price is not correct. Will not go back again

The place is authentic. The architecture, decoration and design is impressive. You may also have a visit in the hotel and the beautiful garden. The standard of the restaurant is obviously high but I did not like the arrogant manner of the waitresses. We were there for a lunch with a group of 15 people, the quality of the dishes... More

If you want to taste traditional Iranian food, then this is THE place to dine. Crowded most days, but the wait is worthwhile because the dishes are sooooo heavenly tasting. There isn't a particular dish which I can claim to be my favourite 'coz on each occasion, I try something new - and never get disappointed. A little on the... More

Good traditional food. You'll enjoy the food if you have a reservation and you can find a parking spot. The restaurant itself is a crowded one!

This is a unique experience you would not regret during your visit to Tehran. The restaurant is decorated in the form of traditional "sofrekhaneh" style and among this group of restaurants it is one of the roomiest and most elegant. The price is rather expensive but the food quality and service are very good. But the main reason you would... More
