Naab has served the best Iranian food in Kuala Lumpur for many years now. While the place has changed hands and many non-Persian items popped up on the menu while prices have been rising as well, those dishes that are genuine Iranian are of excellent quality. Naab is one of our must-stop places whenever we are in town.

Disgusting food , rude and disrespectful waiters , overpriced and low quality food. Koobideh( mince lamb kebab) was disgusting and full of fat. Joojeh ( chicken kebab) was made of minced chicken rather than chicken portions and lacked saffron which is main spice for marinating chicken . Barg kebab had very unpleasant taste. Vegetables in Salad Shirazi was totally different... More

Food's quality not bad; however, it doesn't match the price tag. To my opinion it is not a real Persian restaurant as it's been running by a non-Persian owner. If you have a crave for Iranian cuisine, it is worth eating there though. Besides, try to improve your body language as it will come in handy while placing your order!

The food is very good and fresh, i assume a little expensive for the local malaysian market, hence you mainly see foreigners here, however thats not a bad thing, as it is not crowded.

Very close to Times Square and the heart of Shop and Food street in KL, this restaurant is a decent option for middle eastern food. There are a lot of places with middle eastern food and I cant quite say this is something exceptional but it is not that bad either. Like most middle eastern joints in KL they have... More

After 11 years of eating in this restaurant, today I felt the taste of all the dishes were different specially their self-proclaimed signature dishes. The Kebab was full of pepper that burned my mouth; the vegetable rice was raw including the beans without any trace of salt. The workers were unprofessional and rude. When I asked to talk to top...
