Why locals love it

This place has been serving Iranian kebabs for nearly 40 years. The menu is simple and the decor is overwhelming. If one really wanted to experience true Persian cuisine, this place is a must. And this one does not break the bank so that's an added bonus on a truly local experience.

Why you should visit it

It's been a Dubai institution that everyone loves. Besides, the restaurant doubles as a museum of sorts from all the photos and memorabilias posted on the walls.

Special tip

Try their mixed kebab platter.
