After reading all the reviews about this restaurant I decided to take my wife there for dinner. It was a weekend and the place was busy, but we managed to get a place to sit. We were so excited. Within minutes our order was taken and then one hour and twenty minutes later we left the restaurant without having dinner.
These are my observations.
Four families came after us. All of them were served but not in the order they came in. The last two families got served first. That’s when I realized that the manager was prioritizing service for a specific nationality. In fact the meal that we ordered was served to them minutes after they arrived. That hurt my feelings.
I understand they were busy, I understand the manager did what he did because he thought it was good for business, I understand I was in the wrong attire. Such is life.
Excellent food. It's a very old place opened back in 1978. My dad tell me memories from this place how it has been in the same place with same standard of food still being served. The tables have collection of currency notes from all over the world. The pictures of important people and celebrities visiting the restaurant tell another story which one can observe while waiting for food. Love the dish name sultani which is a piece of meat grilled to perfection. Soup is another thing which is unique .
The place is very homey and uncomplicated. The servers do not speak English really fluently but I'm impressed with how they assist you. They show pictures of the best sellers and ask your preferences accordingly. And food is AHMAZING! 10/10 would come back again.
This is a popular Iranian restaurant with kabobs and other items from Iranian cuisine. The food is good and the prices are cheap. This is a spot you go with freinds to have some good food. It's not a fancy place and they will kick you out once you're done with your food. There are always people in line waiting for seating and it kind of makes sense. It's cash only don't forget!
Reputation is well deserved. Food was delicious.
Simple and easy going place & clean place. Great value for money. No credit or debit cards.
As a family, go for the mix 5, the Bahraini Mix. We also recommend the lentil soup. Thank you Ustad team for a memorable evening with great food.
