“The best quality!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

I cannot forgive myself being headless of the great taste of this restaurant for many years!

Sharaf-el-Islam is an old restaurant located in the heart of Tehran, in Grand Bazaar.
To go there, I recommend Subway. Simply exit in Saadi station, and with a few minutes walk, you are just in the entrance of the Grand Bazaar, which is the heart of the Tehran's commerce!
enter the tight corridor and ask someone about the Grand Mosque, or the restaurant. you will easily find it somewhere downstairs, next to the Grand Mosque.

it is open from 11 a.m to 3 p.m, and it is really crowded. You will be families with it's special and unique system of reception when you reached there! so I don't explain it! you will need to find a sit yourself!

Do not miss Tah-Chin, one of the greatest Iranian dishes, which you will find the best taste here!

After eating, you may spend some time exploring the Grand Bazaar, which you will find a really awesome experience!

the food is of high quality , u should be a fan of iranian traditional food
like "kabab", but the place is old and very crowded at lunch time,so u may wait for a seat.if expecting luxurious, quiet restaurant; i do not recommend it at all.

It is placed in Bazar in Tehran. It is one of the old resturant which serve some Iranian delicious foods. When you are visiting Bazar, don't miss it.

“high quality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

the restaurant is in the old baazar of tehran,the food is great but the restaurant is very crowded and you must be very clever to find a table and order or you will stand there for hours!i specially recommend Chicken Tahchin.if you visit tehran bazar and don't eat in sharaf al eslami you will regret it all your life.
