Just north of the train station on the west side of Valiasr (opposite Book City), 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 (stew) and kashk-e bademjan (eggplant fried and mashed and served with thick whey and mint) are justly popular.

A traditional band plays most evenings when there's an enjoyably boisterous atmosphere.
