In the past, building constructed in form of a polygon, due to its similarity to the shape of the saltcellar (Persian: Namakdan), were called the Namakdan mansion. Beyond the special form of the mension & the pleasant atmosphere, the Namakdan cafe serves all kinds of iranian traditional drinks & cuisine in silver trays and dishes.
