We visited the first time the HAFIS and had a great dinner! Very friendly and fast service. Friday evening with live music up to 10pm. As starter I had Borani Bademdjan and as main dish Chelo Kabab Hafis (lamb) - both very tasty! The interior could be a little more in Persian style. What was very positive, that many Persian...

This review is mostly based on previous experiences that I had with Hafis over a few years in Berlin and not the very recent one. We have been frequenting this place for the past 8 - 9 years, whenever we had the chance to go to Berlin and that is roughly once a year and had always been stunned by... More

If you are looking for Persian food in Berlin, there are much better places. The food is not inedible but the meet is almost always so dry and overcooked exactly just its unfriendly waiters!

Last time they gave us the order of others instead of ours (we just noticed it at home) and this time, we waited for 1 hour and at the end got cold foods. Although their new place is well designed now (I wanted to give them another chance for a business meeting), I will never invite my guests there again.

I'd like to say I'd never eaten Persian food before, but seeing as I lived in Tehran for a year, I can't. In my defense: a) it was 1969; b) I was only a year old. So ultimately this was like trying a cuisine for the first time. And oh my, was it good. Tender lamb straight off the chargrill,... More

They don't have some of main real Persian foods, they have just some of them. Dizi, Kabab and Ghorme Sabzi, in my humble opinion are best samples of real Persian food style. When I asked why they don't have Dizi in their menu, they answered very rudely, so I left it. They are neither respectful nor real Persian restaurant. They... More

Nice restaurant with a very original and exciting variety of food. Great for experiencing the food culture. Unfortunately there are no vegetarian dishes on the card (except for the entrees). The food was good, prices were ok.

Booked a dinner two. Waited 45 min. We asked the waiter how long they think it would take. 5 min he says. After 10 min with still no food, we left. We saw people arriving later than us get served. In all fairness we did get our drinks and the salads to main courses after 30 min. They seem to... More

This is a tourist trap. It's a basic lamb chop kind of place. I'm giving it two stars because the bathroom was clean and the service was fast. I rely on TripAdvisor but restaurant reviews can be varied on here.
