We stumbled onto this restaurant having walked around the Souk Madinat and didn’t give too much thought to it before taking a table. A fortuitous decision as the food was the best we had in Dubai. The lamb is mind-blowingly good. Lovely staff too, brilliant...More

We will continue coming back to Anar, over and over again. The way dishes are offered combined with atmosphere and service, give us the real sniff of persian food and ambience.

The food really is not half of what Iranian food should be. There is no flavour, blend overpriced food. The staff is really not bothered at all, not to take the order or bring anything. Just chatting amongst themselves. I am so disappointed, as being...More

Great location in the Medinat Hotel Dubai, by the hotel canals, with nice views of Burj-Al-Arab. The food was below expectations. Whilst the meat itself was very good and tasty, the dish presentation was average. The rice alongside the meat (part of most dishes) is...More
