“Excellent service”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

Just got back from 4 nights at the Al Ghurair Rayhaan by Rotana Hotel, Dubai.
This restaurant is worth a mention. The service and food quality is very good. We got a great deal (50% off) by eating before 8pm. Well worth a visit if you're in the area.

“Easily the best Persian food in Dubai”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

I went there with family for lunch and the overall experience we had was amazing. Excellent food and service. We started with traditional Persian soups and a Mirza Qassimi dish. For the main we ordered mix platter of kebabs which were juicy and perfectly marinated and grilled. To finish don't forget to order the Persian ice-cream with Falooda. Also they serve great non alcoholic traditional drinks which are great. So I can easily say that this is the best Persian food I had in Dubai.

“Very good”
Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

Everything at Shayan was a solid B+.

The staff were very friendly.

The menu wasn't too varied but that means they can focus well on what they have to offer.

The interior was very nice. Modern & minimalist.

The food was very good. Not outstanding but very very good.

Staff were exceptionally & genuinely warm & friendly.

Cost for three (without alcohol) was $200 including dessert & coffee.

“Modern Persian Restaurant with attention to detail”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Restaurant to be discovered in Rotana Al Ghurair! Persian restaurant with modern decor and exellent food. The service team was well trained and very present. I visit the restaurant with some friends and we seated at a big round table. Perfect to share, big portions. I will go back...
