Hatam Iranian Restaurant

Persian food in the City Centre shopping mall

It would be easy to pass by Hatam. Tucked away in a stretch of restaurants in Deira City Centre, this unassuming Persian restaurant is somewhat overshadowed by its more imposing neighbours. But if you can resist the allure of the predictable burgers, steaks and Chinese noodles nearby, you might discover something a little different.

Like borani esfenaj, for example. This is a traditional Persian yoghurt and spinach dip that demands to be scooped up with torn flaps of flatbread and dispatched with a salad of crisp green leaves, mint and crudités of spring onion.

Back it up with some tightly rolled vine leaves, stuffed with tangy rice, tomato and peppers. Try not to get too stuffed, though, because you should leave some room for the juicy, smoky grilled shrimps with onion, green peppers and saffron-infused steamed rice.

In fact, among the intricate Persian mosaics and traditional carved-wood flourishes, you’ll just want to relax, forget the retail rush outside and keep the courses coming.

Golestan Iranian Restaurant

Bustling Persian restaurant has shisha and a host of regulars

If the Iranian Club is like a fast (and veiled) fix of the Islamic Republic, then Golestan is Tehran proper. Heaving almost every night of the week, with 20-something Persian expats jostling for dominance of the wi-fi and a house band, armed with ribabs and drums, playing mournful background sounds, this kitschy insight into what an average backstreet tea house is like is definitely worth a look in. Situated in the void that is greater Garhoud, Golestan has carved out a solid batch of regulars and expat devotees who return for hearty food and heavy smoking.

Highlights are the mast-o-khiar, a fragrant cucumber and mint yoghurt that compliments the snappy bread. Chelo sultani is also a sure hit for mains, with a generous handful of pomegranate seeds cast over an amply rounded lamb kebab. Be warned, shisha is popular with almost all the diners here so be prepared to wade through sweetened smoke on your way in and a lingering taste of roses with every forkful.

Abshar Iranian Restaurant

A trip to Deira proves worth it for exceptional Persian kebabs and dips From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2010.

Don’t let the canteen-like decor fool you, Abshar undoubtedly serves some of the best Persian food in Dubai. Waiters fill up plates with tasty pieces of flatbread. Dip these in to mizra ghasemi (Iran’s answer to baba ganoush) and a kashik bademjan (made from aubergine and whey), and you won’t be sorry: both come topped with a generous mound of crispy, caramelised onions, and have a smoky flavour that is as addictive as nicotine.

These, however, are no match for the kebabs. Kebab bakhtiari – made from alternating layers of plump, juicy chicken, perfectly pink steak and drippy slices of green capsicum – which comes basted in an intricate, garlicky marinade. Though service leaves something to be desired, the food is so excellent that it is well worth making a trek through Deira for this ethereal spot.
