“Good Iranian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Great food. We went for lunch and were satisfied. The chicken and lamb were perfect and the bread was very tasty. The staff were also very nice. The Iranian tea with mint leaves washed it all off well. Ordered a dish while eating and staff were good enough to not charge for the side dish of rice which we said we didn't want. If you like middle eastern food you will like it this place. The prices are a bit high but it must be because of the location.

“Good portions, affordable prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

This restaurant is situated on the Bukit Bintang road, right opposite Lot 10 shopping complex and just a stone's throw away from Pavillion. They serve Iranian cuisines in two cozy shop lots.

We had a kebab set with rice and the gheimeh with eggplants as well as a salad. The meat was cooked well, the gheimeh was not too oily, the salad was superbly fresh and the portions were big, just right for a starving couple who walked terribly much in the hot sun.

We were also given complimentary lime juice which was citrusy and refreshing. The total damage for the two of us with two fresh glasses of juice was about RM90 (with a 15% discount for Citibank credit card holders)

“Healthy Traditional Iranian Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is a very nicely decorated (some touch of Iranian traditional setting). It consist of 3 stories... 3rd floor is mainly private function rooms, 2nd floor private dinner with buffet counter and outdoor dining area and the ground floor... Ground floor is the main restaurant area, it's fine dining concept and and outdoor cafe-like dining area facing the main road where its a spot to see and to be seen.

The food, nice healthy cuisine, delicious ... But first time to Iranian food, may need some explanation and guide to dine. It's a little bit pricy but worth to try...

Not forgetting the friendly and attentive staff will be there to serve.

The guest to this restaurant are mainly tourist.

I would recommend to have a try... I personally love the food.

“Decent Iranian Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

We went to the bukit bintang outlet for dinner as there is no other Iranian restaurant at bukit bintang. The menu spread is quite limited and food taste is good as we ordered the chicken kebab and lamb kebab. The rice is served with butter and it was a flavored rice which really taste good as well as the Iranian yogurt (I love it). The environment of the shop is pleasant and background Iranian music is nice. Overall it's a nice place to eat but the price is quite expensive.
