Best Persian Restaurant In town

This Restaurant has no competitor in its own style in this town. Best Persian cuisine in a great unique and very much different atmosphere!

If you know anything about Middle Eastern food, you know that humus, fattoosh, tabbouleh and baba ghanoush are NOT Iranian foods. I am Lebanese myself, and I love my local cuisine, but I went to Shahriyar for IRANIAN food, with which I am very familiar due to Iranian friendships. The service was good but Unfortunately, nothing I ate was Iranian.... More

The restaurant offers a smallish buffet but the choice of food is pretty good. Drinks, other than soft drinks, are not included in the price. Good for families and service is generally okay. Popular place for parties.

The food was amazing / excellent, tasty and fully satisfactory. Yes a bit high in price but worth it. The restaurant is very cosy and staff were very welcoming and friendly. This is my new favorite in Al Ain. Will definitely go again. Strongly recommended.

We used to come to this restaurant ages ago when it was tucked down stairs in Al Ain Mall. Now in its new settings the food and services even got better. Nicely decorated to reflect exactly it's origin with extra seatings to emulate local Custome with cushions and carpets. Really nice to try for those never experienced such style of... More

Our family ate hear after multiple recommendations from friends. The fresh bread and hummus was delicious. We ordered chicken kebab and rice and it was fantastic. Even though it is a persian restaurant the plates are not huge, we didnt have any leftovers to bring home. Food was excellent and the decor was beautiful. Worth a visit.

My family and I loved the food. It is a beautiful restaurant with beautiful decor. The pita bread was delicious and so fresh. We ordered the boneless chicken plates and they were fantastic. We were very pleased, but wish it wasnt so pricey so we could come here often.

In the midddle of the new wing of the Al Ain Mall you can find this excellent restaurant, surprisingly empty if you consider the quality of food and the atmosphere. It is an Iranian restaurant. We had a portion of mix grill for 2 persons and, along with classical arabic Homous and Tabouleh, we paid a lot of effort to... More

We had lunch anddinner several times. It was just excellent. Only the last visit, the chicken meat was tough. Otherwise, the staff are very polite.
