Shabestan

MENA

  • Shabestan
The mood of this restaurant created by the tabla player and violinist playing soothing classical-style Persian music is relaxed, authentic and welcoming. Staff are chatty and friendly, even cracking jokes with patrons. They know the menu well and are happy to suggest dishes to those unfamiliar with the cuisine. Fans of seafood will enjoy the khorak e mahi, a grilled sustainable shaari eshkeli fish served with sautéed spinach and potato. Other standouts include the meygu polo (shrimp rice) and joojeh ostkhoun (marinated flame-grilled baby chicken). Each dish is flavoured with spices and seasoned to perfection. With such bold flavours and rich marinades, the food is similar to Indian cuisine, making this restaurant a must-visit for those eager to sample authentic Iranian cuisine with a kick.

    Buddys this restaurant have nothing to say bcoz the hostess was casual with us, when the waiter was taking order he was watching out here n there instead of concentrating on order, even the food is also expensive as well as low quality meats.
    Few days back I went to SHAYAN and believe me i tried almost all popular persian restaurants and i found that this the best updated place which have value for money and of course best preparation serving with professional and friendly service. Even the chef only use to comes to serve you bread in the beginning. They really take cares of their customers. please try this place and you will come to know the meaning of the taste of persian cuisine.

    we were really looking forward to having dinner here. we had tried iranian food before at the iranian club and that sucked so we told ourselves we would try again. we are sorry we did. we started off with the mezze which was great and liked the fresh baked bread. however as we progressed the meal turned from bad to worse. we were expecting a lot from the meat but all of it tasted horrible and it smelled really bad just like at the iranian club. maybe this is what persian food is supposed to taste like? if it is i feel very sorry for iranians. we figured finally at least we can eat some dessert and it will make up for the horrible main courses and luckily it was okay. we tried a few desserts and they were all okay. the decor and ambience???? please it was tacky and old and the view???? get real you call that a view?
