Tasty food (I had Fessenjan), but quite expensive! Unfortunately the service was slow (~1h waiting) and we were among the first clients. They forgot to bring us the starter so we only had it after the main dish, we had to ask for cutlery, one of the glasses was dirty etc. There were too many little things related to service... More

If you like Iranian food, try this restaurant. You will not regret. If you do not know Iranian food, try this restaurant. Is difficult to find a better place in order to became familiar with this kind of food. A big plus: They have a good list of wines. The Iranian food without a good wine (remember Omar al Khayyam!)...

The food was below standard, the service was terrible, and they played and went around our bill to have it more expensive than it should be. They doubled the most expensive order and when we ask for explanation, the lady was so rude and get extremely offensive. At the end we insisted and did not pay for the extra. So,... More

Definitely for meat lovers you get a good barbecue style grilled meat. But it could have been little bit spicy. There is entertainment with an oriental dancer the Saturday around 10 for 30 min. With the meat dishes you get plain rice. Budget friendly place. The decor is very simple and I have noticed lot's of parents with kids

We were a group of five and each had a great lunch. The waiter brought us a plate of fresh vegetables with cheese and bread as a starter, on house. I had ghaymeh with rice, really fantastic. My friends had baghali polo and chicken and lamb kebab and were all happy. Make sure you try their home made pickles. The... More

Really something different. Can't really say a lot about this restaurant, only that we where never disappointed. Don't go there with hi expectation, and you will never be disappointed! Good honest food, well spiced, nice flavours and sympathetic service.

No doubt one of the nicer restaurants in Brussels ..... Great food, clean restaurant and tasty food. Huge portions excellent starter, main course and desserts although I thought the pricing was definitely on the steep side. While all positive on my side I don't know if I'd run back in a hurry.

We travelled pretty far out from where my friend lives in St. Catherine to visit Ispahan, and we weren't disappointed. Service was friendly and fast, the food was just divine. We went for the lamb shank and the chicken dishes from the a la carte menu, traditional Persian dough to drink and some wonderful Persian bread with maast-o khiar (yoghurt... More
