I knew the smaller place previously occupied by the restaurant and I must say I did not like it. But the food was still good and the waiters nice. Now that they moved to a bigger space, it feels really good just stop by when we are too lazy to cook and have a rest in a cool place. The... More

This Persian and Arab diner has a good selection of both meat-based and vegetarian dishes. The chef is Iranian and the service is very friendly. They have an interesting range of drinks, such as mango juice from Lebanon, all at very good prices. I had the aubergine stew, which was delicious. You can really eat well for under ten euros,...

Guys, are you serious? Are you sure it's Pestalozzistrasse 26? I've been there and was realy disappointed! For first, the place is really dirty inside, don't even try to look in which conditions they cook the food. For second, the waiter was so inattentive, forgetting to bring a food we ordered, forks were delivered only after we requested them, same... More

Karun is by far the best place to eat oriental food..both for vegans and meat lovers. The humus is to die for and the tabuhla is juicy. We come here 2-3 times a week. They also opened a bigger place two blocks away.

I would not believe my friend when he told me that some good Persian kebabs could be had in Berlin. But, when I did visit Karun - arabisch und persische Kuche – restaurant I am convinced. The chef must be a prized possession for this restaurant as he makes some delectable kebabs and also the stews that go well with... More

They have variety of Persian kebabs and stews with rather good quality rice which is perfect for a heavy lunch. But they also serve different sandwiches and Shawarma in case you want something regular. I wasn't a fan of the atmosphere or the inside seats but it's perfect for a lunch take away. It has few seats outside which is... More

I go there almost everyday. It has the best value for food quality. The staff are nice. You got to have a lot of choices as a celiac or vegeterian as well.
