Iran Zamin – The restaurant. Don’t go by the rather unappealing look. The food is great!
Wholesome soup. Makes for a great starter. But do not have too much of it – its quite filling!
Recommended: Mixed platter (for 2). AED 135 and consists of 3 types of rice, meats, fish and shrimps.
Give it a shot: Deezy, a dish made of tender lamb, potatoes and white beans. Best eaten with warm bread.
Try their daily special – it is usually a safe bet if you do not know what to order.
