“really the right place to dine in tehran”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

I was there for many times, for bussines dinners and romantic dates, and I satistfed all times.
The location is good, in Vali-Asr avenue, north tehran, near park Sa'ii in basement level of hotel Ramtin.
the atmosphere is ok, calm and gentle, not very lightened as many restaurants in Iran and this make it even more cosy and comfortable.
French cuisine is served in acceptable quallity and perfect starters and average deserts are waiting for you near an open kitchen in a corner so you can see some interesting views of your food in the way of being ready.
I suggest u to order some liver as starter, you will not be dissapointed! also they serve some kind of salad which contains spinach and a delicious red-colored dressing with a delicious sour-sweet taste...yammmy! chicken and red meet foods are in acceptable quality, but you should tell them to not overcooke you'r meet, as this is very common in Iran.you should say them: I like my food in a little bloody (or SEMMI-COOKED!!) to have a medium cooked steak.
tiramissu and pana-cotta are in average quality and it's better to order some icecream instead.
**they are closed fridays!

“Good but nothing to rave about”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

I returned to Bistango after a long time taking an Irish tourist. We both had very high expectations of the place after I'd read the reviews on trip advisor and the fact that it was rated third best restaurant in Iran.

We were both disappointed though, probably because we were expecting too much. The setting and ambience was good, dishes were decorated well and steak was good. All reasonable quality but nothing exceptional about the place.

Would go back. But I'd rank this restaurants as the 10th-15th on my list of recommended eateries in Tehran.

“it is small but it has polite and kind staff”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

i went to Bistango restaurant for break fast...it didn't have a big varriety of choices but the items were fresh enough to enjoy... i think the only break fast buffet in tehran hotels that has HALIM(traditional irannian break fast) is Bistango...the only problem in my opinion is the price in comparison with limited choices that we can consume...totally i found it enjoyable.
