Iranian in Deira

This long-standing traditional Persian lair has unpretentious decor and a lovely panorama of glittering lights unfolding over the Creek. Take your sweet time as you tuck into classics such as fesenjan ba morgh (chicken in walnut-pomegranate sauce) or ghormeh sabzi (lamb stew) and finish up with a scoop of vermicelli ice cream with saffron and rose water.

Live Persian music nightly except Saturday. Reservations essential.
