I like the food here and it's really delicious. You can come here for lunch from 12- 3 pm for a buffet or 5 or 6 pm for dinner till 10 pm. The only fault is the service! The waitress ignores our requests and is lousy sitting behind the bar playing with her phone. I wish the owner would do something about the service because the food is very yummy! Especially the kashk badinjoun.

This was one of the worst meals we had in our travels through Germany. From the dust gathered on the ledges and various areas, to the young waiter and female hostess spending the whole evening playing music on a computer or phones for each other and talking loudly while ignoring the only guests in the restaurant (us), to the abysmal food preparation - it would not be surprising if this place goes out of business. Very disappointed.

We first time tried the Persian food at Rivass - so the taste has been a little new to us, but we enjoyed the lamb meat with saffron rice (could have been a bit more saffron for taste, not only for colour). Some of the dishes listed on the menu card were not available. The offered red wine from France was not very expensive, but not very intensive in taste, too. So my overall rating is "average".

This restaurant simply offers the best Persian food you will ever have. I have had Persian food at several places in Dubai and other places in Europe and this was simply the best. The restaurant is suited in a quiet residential area near downtown. It seems quiet and there's nothing special about the seating, the atmosphere is somewhat dull but they are somewhat busy with delivery and take away orders. Rivass is owned and managed by a Persian family and they have allot to offer from mouth watering appetizers, complementary accompaniments; feta cheese, walnuts, side salad and bread, juicy kebabs, stews and delicious Persian desserts. They also offer a delicious Persian yogurt based drink called Doogh. At this restaurant, do not expect good service but the food is amazing and worth dining at. I highly recommend this restaurant for Persian food enthusiasts.
