“Small place with great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

One of the oldest restaurants in Tehran belongs to a very nice Armenian family with history of owning this restaurant from some years after WWII. Food, presentation and staff behavior are all great, Its a nice venue for evenings and all items I tried from their menu was really delicious.

“Fantastic old italian restaurant in Tehran”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

Leon was a pleasure to visit. The restaurant is very fresh with excellent facilities (clean with "western toilets" etc.) and a very helpful staff. The food was delicious and very beautiful and not pricey. The Leon signature steak with bear berry sauce was amazing. Do yourself a favor and visit this restaurant when in Tehran (book a table in advance!). And yes, the alcohol drinks are fantastic.
