What a lovely dinner at this excellent, family-owned Iranian restaurant. We had mixed kebab #4, which was two kebab, one chicken pieces and one minced mutton. Both were excellent, and served with delicious breads, salad and yoghurt. We also had some very good hummus. Very busy, loads of character, delightful host. It's fast, it's very good value, and it's super food and a great experience. We're definitely going back.

The price is a bargain and it tastes delicious. Waiters and hosts are funny and visit each table all the time. Portion could be a little but large but if you are a meat lover, you would enjoy the meal there.

We really enjoyed eating here, the staff were very welcoming and charming. Clearly a popular choice with locals, the food was delicious and everything was served with a smile, lovely. Whilst quite basic in its furnishings and surroundings you feel very welcome and it's is a great place to eat; highly recommended!

I visited this place with my wife. The place was buzzing,service was decent and friendly. The food was amazing and plentiful. The electricity went during the meal but it didnt faze the staff the just continued working. The show went on. The price was very reasonable. I didnt feel like every little thing was an extra as is the case in so many restaurants in dubai. If or when i return to dubai it is the one restaurant i will make a point of going back to.
