Shater Abbas 1 information
The bustling open kitchen and hard-working waiters attest to the popularity of this long-standing favourite. Enter from the street, descend the stairs into the basement and claim one of the large tables clad in cheerful checked tablecloths – your reward will be the best kababs in the city. Start with the hot bread and cheese, and be sure to order the succulent shandiz lary kabab (spiced lamb) or the kubideh (minced lamb kabab), as both are delicious. There are fish dishes for non-meat eaters.
