Nice food and restaurant on the south side of the Emam square. Try sitting area around a fountain, while it has tables. The soup of the day was superb, Fesenjun was also very tasty. The fountain started to be illuminated around 20:30, when people queued up for seats. Better to be there earlier. Waiters moved slow, seemingly only particular guys... More

You have to eat the traditional way. Eating at table and chairs feels lazy when there is a carpet you can sit on. Spread the food in front of you. Feel relaxed and comfortable. And enjoy the food. An amazing experience.

the food was not nice, too expensive, the chicken were leftovers of the day before. the waiters were very unfriendly. the food was overpriced for what it was. the interior looked ok. a bit kitsch though. the have a WIFI Network, but this did not worked.

Visited this for lunch. It is one of the nicely decorated restaurant in Iran. It has a wide variety of selection, ranging from Biryani, Tahchin, Dizzi to Kebab.

Staff were a bit disorganized although possibly this was due a lot of them being fed on the table next to mine. Food was pretty good but in my opinion prices are quite high. I guess you're paying for the location.

This restaurant is very big and we were basically ignored. The food was fine with no surprises. We had kebabs.

Nice place to have meal, especially with a group of friend or family. Food is good, a bit crowded. Serve iran meal, and finally find fesenjan here. Price a bit above the average.
