This Persian gem has been serving regulars with traditional fare and a view of the Creek for 23 years. Start by sampling the hearty and fragrant vegetable and grain soup, ash e reshte (a favourite of the old Persian Kings) along with the kashk e bademjan (fried auberine topped with mint, garlic and kashk). The meats and kababs are succulent and flavoursome, with the classic koobideh taking first place. Endearing touches include the charming gentleman who bakes homemade Iranian bread upon request, regularly checking if you need a 'top up'.
