Lonely Planet review

About 250m north of the train station, which is on Rah-Ahan Sq, and on the west side of Valiasr, this restored ‘coffeehouse’ in south Tehran is wonderfully atmospheric because it remains popular with locals, who use it as an unofficial community centre. The dizi (US$6 all up) and kashk-e bademjan (eggplant fried and mashed and served with thick whey and mint; US$3.50) are rightly popular. A traditional band plays most evenings when the boisterous atmosphere is best enjoyed with a group, and bookings are recommended.
