Khoshbin Restaurant information
Lonely Planet review
Tiny, no-frills Khoshbin is an institution among Tehranis, who cram onto the fast-turnover tables for an authentic Gilaki (food from the Gilan region) lunch. Usually known as Hassan Rashti, after the restaurant founder, highlights include mirza ghasemi (mashed eggplant, squash, garlic, tomato and egg, served with bread or rice), kuli (carp roe), zeytoun parvardeh (green olives marinated in pomegranate molasses, walnuts and herbs) and particularly the fish (including trout, sturgeon and smoked salmon) – basically, anything on the menu. Look for the small orange sign, and the queue.
