Haft Khan

Top choice iranian

in Shiraz

Wildly popular with fashionable Shirazis, this enormous restaurant complex near Quran Gateway offers four types of dining experience: there’s a generous buffet on the ground floor, a fast-food court on the 2nd floor, an à la carte restaurant on the 3rd floor serving Iranian barbeque and a teahouse on the roof.

The best value among the restaurants is the ground-floor buffet, which offers a huge array of traditional Iranian dishes, including freshly baked bread with cheese and herbs, lots of salads and some unusual dips (great for vegetarians). The surrounds are modern but elegant, and service is attentive. A taxi between here and Shohada Sq costs IR100,000.
