Havash Traditional Restaurant

Iranian in Gonbad-e Kavus

The term 'traditional' refers to the excellent food, served with tanour bread fresh from the clay oven – not to the decor, which, while very comfortable, is a series of somewhat rectilinear mini cottages in new red brick. The setting beside a long series of low, narrow fountain pools should become more attractive once the foliage has time to grow.

It's just 300m from Imam Ali Sq, so it's fairly handy for the hotels, and is also building a hotel of its own. Advance bookings suggested.
