Khan Gostar Restaurant information
Lonely Planet review
Located in the city’s Armenian quarter, this cafeteria-style restaurant serves enormous plates of rice, chicken, fish and kabab. There’s a large self-service salad bar (US$4.75 per plate) that is great for vegetarians, and all of the tahchin (crunchy rice) dishes are delicious – we’re fans of the tahchin barreh (rice cake with slow-cooked lamb shank garnished with barberries and nuts). There’s also a downstairs restaurant with traditional seating (same opening hours and prices).
