Golestan

Bustling Persian restaurant has shisha and live music

  • Golestan
From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2011
If you’re willing to brave the cloud of shisha haze as well as the navigation of the industrial-looking back streets of Garhoud that are involved in a trip to Golestan, you’ll be rewarded with some fine kebabs. The kitsch-like decor adds to the ambience in an odd way, perhaps because a busy restaurant always feels nicer than a quiet one – and any night of the week Golestan will be packed with Arab and Iranian expats. We’d go there just for the bread, which is fresh, thin and perfect when dipped into the mint and cucumber yoghurt, but we’re also huge fans of the lamb dishes and the eggplant-laden stews. But the best thing here is people watching; the animated conversations in every corner make for even better entertainment than the live music. Golestan
