Cheap, and very interesting place. You feel like in a special restaurant. There is this specific vibe given by the Iranian ambiance. Food was good, the spicing of the salad was tasty (lemon dressing). Kebab was tasty too. The tea arrived a bit late, but was actually for free. Generally speaking, a good place if you are in that district. It was a recommendation from a friend, and I don't regret we went there. It is a popular place, so you might have to wait (might).

One of the best and most unique kebab experiences in Dubai that is both tantalizing to the taste buds and a feast for the eyes. A bit pricey if you compare it to other mix grill platters offered around but definitely worth every dirham you spend. Each kebab is marinated in a different blend of savory spices and grilled over charcoal in an Iranian style with my favourite being the white one marinated in sour buttermilk. Be sure to order a small plate of hummus on the side to balance the palette if you're new to this type of cuisine. The ambience is also cozy with thousands of photos of famous and not so famous people lining the walls and some antiques and old musical instruments here and there giving the whole place an inviting, warm and cozy atmosphere. Each table has various kinds of currencies on it tucked under the glass which is supposedly a charm meant to bring in good business (or so, I thought). All in all a great place for satisfying your non veg cravings with family or a small group of friends.

Best Kebab restaurant in Dubai! Chicken yoghurt kebabs are a must try! Their mixed grill and saffron rice are top notch. The soup served for lunch is out of this world. Extremely friendly and polite owners and staff. It is always a pleasure to visit this place as it has great energy and positive vibes. Must visit, highly recommended!!

A place where every celebrity dined and clicked a photo with the owners. And you will see all the photos in the walls of the restaurant.

We tried the Iranian Mixed Platter and it was good.

They have a separate dining facility for family and the place is always busy.

Staff were very warm and welcoming.

The owner himself came and explained the details of the dish. It was great to see he was also cleaning the table for the next guests.

Cool traditional kebab house.
Very clean and accessible.
The food is mega, full of flavours and so tender and well cooked.

The staff are helpful and quick.
The restaurant is hectic and that’s due to customers panicking to get tables all the time, no need to worry as the turnover is very quick.
If you are in the area give it a try!
