Delta Sofrakhane Sonati information
This delightful neotraditional retreat lies beneath the unremarkable Delta restaurant using separate stairs from outside. Tea (US$1) comes in ceramic Lalejin pots, women can smoke qalyan on carpeted bed-seats without undue attention and the chicken ‘biriyani’ comes on a flaming plate. Don’t miss the scrumptious kashka bademjan (US$1), eggplant paste with yoghurt, mint and roasted red peppers.
