You have to eat the traditional way. Eating at table and chairs feels lazy when there is a carpet you can sit on. Spread the food in front of you. Feel relaxed and comfortable. And enjoy the food. An amazing experience.

Visited this for lunch. It is one of the nicely decorated restaurant in Iran. It has a wide variety of selection, ranging from Biryani, Tahchin, Dizzi to Kebab.

Staff were a bit disorganized although possibly this was due a lot of them being fed on the table next to mine. Food was pretty good but in my opinion prices are quite high. I guess you're paying for the location.

This restaurant is very big and we were basically ignored. The food was fine with no surprises. We had kebabs.

Nice place to have meal, especially with a group of friend or family. Food is good, a bit crowded. Serve iran meal, and finally find fesenjan here. Price a bit above the average.

The Bastani restaurant is a glitzy / pretty venue so it is a must see. Unfortunately it is not so much a must eat at, on this point it is average. Initially there was plenty of food at the buffet and the salad items were fresh but no one seemed to be checking when items ran out. The hot dishes... More

We went here for lunch. It's a beautifully renovated restaurant. The paintings on the wall and the restaurant ambient is really nice. Food is ok. Nothing special.

We went here as it was described as a traditional restaurant. To be honest, my Beryani - which seems to be a local Isfahan dish - was good, but the waitresses are too commercial. They dropped a jelly pudding desert, salad and water on your table even while you don't ask. Later on everything is on the bill. In this... More
