I am writing this review as somebody who has been in this place a million times - at least this is how I perceive it. Until not too long ago, the owner was running a significantly smaller place in the same street. But due to...More

At the end of a long and unseasonably warm day in Berlin we arrived at this restaurant, ready to eat big. We were not disappointed. Once we got past the language barriers, what with our English and Cantonese not matching up with their German and...More

Ordered a vegetarian plate for 6.50 Eur. Hardly any veggies on it. All came from deep fried. Some humus and a falafel that's it. Hard to find worse Persian food in Berlin.

I wouldn't recommend this place if you want to eat authentic Persian food. Only two sorts of kebab (kabab) dishes and 2-3 stews. The rest of the menu is Arabic foods. The portion of our food was not much. The tables and the washroom were...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...More

Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through
the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which
lends its name to this well-heeled neighborhood. Here
you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city:
upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades
and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone
streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through
little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop
