Dubai's food scene is so diverse that there is something to please every person and say that we do have many nationalities living below and it is necessary to have your comfort food when you are away from home. Numerous Iranians and deportees take pleasure in a juicy Kebab, and of course, exactly how can we forget their delicious flavoured rice. In Dubai, we have plenty of restaurants asserting to serve the finest Iranian food. After trying several dining establishments over seven years, I have located some of my preferred Iranian locations right here in Dubai.

9. Iran Zamin

This restaurant started back in 2003, and the quality of the food has made them entirely a preferred dining establishment today. It's generally busy, and also I enjoy the chatter, the family members ambience and, naturally, the Kebabs; it is magnificent. I want the Dubai Marina branch, as well as besides the typical Iranian dishes, they also serve a few international dishes like Burgers, Sandwiches, and some exciting mock-tails.

8. Enigma

Now, this is a correct great eating restaurant situated at the legendary Palazzo Versace; earlier, the concept of Enigma was somewhat various, but it is serving modern-day and traditional Iranian dishes because of the last few years. The style is rich and stylish and I usually go below for an event, the food is lovely, and you won't have any grievances. The kebabs are respectable, yet I can not miss out on the Faludeh treat and the Saffron Persian cake; you will fall for the flavours and eagerly anticipate returning. The menu is quite considerable, so you will be bound to visit again to attempt some of their other bestselling recipes.

7. Rivas

I was told about this restaurant by among my Iranian pals. Also, after going through their social media web page, I was encouraged to purchase their food and be reasonable the pictures online do look attractive. Still, it doesn't do justice to just how excellent the food is. It's genuine and would certainly advise you of house food which can offer competition to several big dining establishments below. I like the Lamp chops and the baked poultry; both meals are juicy, tender, and filled with dynamic flavours.

6. Ostadi

This restaurant is a heritage, among the oldest dining establishments in Dubai and to which many individuals advocate. I understand a few good friends that eat below twice a week, the meat is exotic, and the location has lots of history. A lot of celebrities have dined below, including the Crown Royal prince Shaikh Hamdan bin Mohammed. These people are professionals when it comes to serving the most savoury dish, as well as soon as you have it here, you will wish to eat back once more. If you fulfil the owner, ask him a bit about how Ostadi kebab began, and he has some fascinating tales to share—one place you can not miss to attempt in Dubai.

5. Sofreh

JLT is gradually becoming a brand-new centre of a few of the most fantastic restaurants the city has to supply. This restaurant had sent out some of their trademark meals a month back and honestly; I did not anticipate much; however, they verified me wrong. The food was moreish and also luscious, to state the least, the food selection is rather large but if you adhere to some of the classics you will not be let down. Their motto is to maintain things as easy as possible without compromising on the preference, and I liked the food here, and also I make sure you will also.

4. Anar

This restaurant has become part of Madinat Jumeirah for some time, and they even have live enjoyment on specific days of the week. It's a favourite of several. The food is quite appealing as well, sitting by the Madinat Jumeirah lake with a beautiful view of the Burj Al Arab specifically throughout the winter months in their outdoor location is the best way to enjoy your meal. Several of my preferred recipes right here are the Kebab Shashlik and also Kashk o bademjoon; you would undoubtedly fall in love with the exquisite flavours. In general, it's a fantastic place to eat with a relaxed atmosphere and also great food.

3. Shabestan

It's been a while since I visited Shabestan in Deira, it was pretty a trip for me, yet I don't regret it as the food was marvellous. It's an old favourite of many Iranian households who take in the society and have an authentic dish. Visiting this dining establishment is like belonging of heritage as it started in 1984 as well as claiming that they have still kept up with the times and also continue to amaze guests with a few of the timeless recipes like Bahalah polo-ba-mahicheh (lamb shank), which is cooked for around 4-5 hrs so you can visualize how tender and juicy the meat is going to be, some even more meals which I delight in below are Hen Stew (fesenjan-ba-morgh), Resteh Soup and also the chelo rice. One more fun fact is that it is located in Radisson Blu Resort, one of the initial first-class hotels in Dubai,, ushered in by His Highness of UAE.

2. Aghatti

This dining establishment in La Mer is reasonably new, contrasted to the ones on the listing, but that does not make it much less fantastic. The design is rich, and the food is contemporary; however, it has an Iranian significance. When I ate here for the first time, I promised myself that I would obtain my family also, and I was so fired up as not only my family members but also my friends authorized this establishment. This is our typical hangout area if we remain in La Mer. I enjoy their option of grills, and I do not mind binging on the tantalizing meats. I would extremely recommend this area to anyone searching for a place that has a modern-day touch but still keeps the old Iranian practices utilizing their food.

1. Farsi

This restaurant is my go-to place if I am yearning for something fast and light; I usually buy takeout, and also it has never let me down. Their desserts are heavenly, particularly the Halwa and the Faludeh. They have several branches in Dubai, and I suggest you eat there, unlike me as the food preference is much more luscious and will undoubtedly lure you into getting back. I once tried a combo of their fresh-baked bread and Ghormeh Sabzi, which was possibly the very best I have had in a while. So do head right here as you undoubtedly eagerly anticipate coming back again.
