I love dining at Divan Restaurant.
It is evident that someone's put their heart and soul in to this project.
The menu is exciting with so many good choices.
The food is delicious and presented beautifully.
The service is excellent.
The view of the alborz mountains is awsome.
But the best part about this restaurant is the beautiful decor.

Try the kabob torsh, steak and kateh or Hamour fish with leek rice. yum! yum! yum!
Love the Saladeh sabzi khordan az a starter.

Oh I forgot to mention their beautiful gift shop by the entrance which sells beautiful artisinal handicrafts and jewelry; great place to buy yourself a gift upon your exit ;)

This was one of the best experiences I had during my visit to Iran. I've been to a lot of restaurants in Iran and this, I must say, was the best experience. You get the whole concept; exceptional dining, great atmosphere and the best service in good English. Don't miss a visit!

This is a fairly new restaurant in the plush and exclusive Sam center shopping complex in the north of Tehran. Been in Tehran for the past three weeks or so and been to Divan 7-8 times already. They team behind it is the same as Tehrans finest restaurants such as Monsoon Lounge, Bix, Market, Terrace, Limon etc..

By far the most beautiful setting in Tehran out of all the fine dining restaurants. They serve what they call 'modern persian food' and thats exactly what it is. The kateh steak for example is a perfect example of 'modern persian'. The food is out of this world, the service is great and the place is also as I said beautifully decorated. It is possibly the most expensive restaurant in Tehran alongside Kenzo but it's truly worth a visit or ten! Well done to the management for adding something very special to Tehran's restaurant scene.

Few days after visiting Kakheh Golestan we went to dinner at Divan. I was pleasantly shocked by the Decor. A Homage to Golestan Palace! And the food was unbelievably great. Persian food with a twist. The Lamb kabab and the steak were the best I have ever had. My 7 year old who has been to many restraunts commented "Mommy, this Kabab was different than any Kabab, so soft and delicious". The views from their balcony is incredible. Well done Mr. and Mrs. Varasteh!

If only Martha Stewart could visit Divan she would indeed fall in love with the delightful modern Persian cooking in this contemporary setting. Divan is inspiring so many tastebuds young and old, traditional and the newly acquired. I have a funny feeling that the coveted author of Food of Life, the ever impressive Chef of ancient Persian and Modern Iranian Cooking, Najmieh Batmanglij would also be hugely impressed. I hope that management is able to keep up their standard as this restaurant could serve as an example for all others to follow. Give them your positive feedback so that they can. A must try if in Tehran.
