An amazing place with Takhts or seats to sit on the carpeted stands, though were seated at the regular tables. Decorated all around with exotic Persian paintings & scenes of this fabled land.
The food was delicious as well. The portions very large with loads of rice, so we shared and got to taste a little of all. Cannot recall all the exotic local names of the dishes, but we had a delicious meat stew in an earthenware clay pot which was delicious. Chicken cooked with spinnach too was lovely. The Naans were crisp & hot & the chicken seasoned with plums, so so tender and delicious.

Bastani restaurant is beautiful and is a very atmospheric place to hang around for a while.
We enjoyed some dishes that we didn't see or get to try anywhere else in Iran - plum stew, celery stew, baked yoghurt rice with chicken, and a meaty stuffed flat bread.
