This Iranian restaurant (formerly Special Ostadi) is one of Dubai's kept secrets, serving some of the best, traditional Persian food in the city. Situated in the old Al Fahidi District, with quirky vintage telephones and questionable birdcages inhabited by chirping Canaries; the soup, mixed kebabs and rice with zereshk (dried barberries) are just some of the gems to behold at this casual cafe. The host and owner perpetually cracks jokes and if you are lucky enough you'll get a chance to hear about the history and family behind this much-loved spot.
