Shabestan means a place of rest for weary travellers, and this oasis of deliciousness couldn't be any more aptly named. Nestled in a corner of Robertson Quay along a well-trodden path, Shabestan offers classic Persian cuisine but with a decisive nod to local palettes: less grease yet still perfumed with exotic, but never overwhelming, spices. Dine al-fresco and people-watch, or head indoors to enjoy the friendly ambience of this culinary gem. That Shabestan's Executive Chef Mohammad Hosseini obsession with fine ingredients is apparent - there is nothing artificial in the flavours that combine to make each dish. Traditional grilled meats are marinated in fresh herbs; while seasonal vegetables meld with spices so perfectly that your taste buds will thank you for the experience. A little birdie tells us that Middle Eastern royalty have dined here on more than one occasion. We believe it - the food is wholesome perfection. Juxtaposed against the nightly belly dancing show, dining here embodies a delightful blend of naughty and nice.
