The Danial offers an unbelievable great variety of Iranian starters, meet and seafood dishes and deserts for a very reasonable price. All the dishes were very tasteful. I can absolutely recommend this restaurant.

Best place for Friday post-church, post-prayer eats. A huge selection of persian stews and kabobs along with seafood, salads, desserts, and a torshi bar. Always well under 200 aed for a family of four.
