“Nice decor & good food”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

We went to this restaurant attracted by so many positive comments from other customers through Trip Advisor and other similar sites. It is true that the decoration is very stylish, the paintings, furniture, colors, everything comes together nicely. The attention and service is quite good. The food is more International than "Persian with a twist" as some people have described; it is nicely cooked and well presented, but is not an extraordinary experience. The price is more or less the same as the other Tehran "posh-upper class" restaurants that in the last few years is growing so much in Tehran city. On the whole, still I prefer a good traditional Persian dish than paying more money for the decoration and too much compliments from the waiters. Another point to mention is that this place also follows the "fashion" of being too dark in the evening and one struggles to read the menu and see what the food really looks like...

“Tasty food, great service, don't miss it!”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

One of the best restaurant I have ever been in Iran. We really enjoyed the taste of the stews and kebab with delicious starter and salads which is completely different with every restaurant in Tehran. The atmosphere is very good and you can enjoy the view of Tehran, there is a place for smoker in balcony. The service is very good, the waiters are professional.

“Best restaurant in Iran”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Divan was an amazing surprise!!! The restaurant itself is worth a visit not only because of the good food but also because of the décor and ambience. Everything from the starters to main course and finally the dessert was extremely tasty and delicious. Congratulations to the Divan...it rocks!!!

“Re-visited Iranian food”
Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

We really enjoyed to have dinner in this restaurant. Food was very good : revisited version of typical Persian food. As starter, I ate lavash spring roll, filet mignon with cherry sauce as main course and to finish profiterole with safraned ice cream.
The place is very well decorated with a terrace offering a nice view on mountains. It is a succeed combination between classic Iranian art and modern. If you want, you can buy some pieces ...
For Iranian food, and if you want to be in a modern, nice place, with good music this is probably the place to eat.
A best in Tehran !
