This is simply a five-star experience in every way. The décor is a tribute to the triumph of Persian designs with intricate carvings, lattice work and beautiful hanging lanterns, so it’s no surprise that the moment you get out of the elevator your eyes are arrested by the beauty of the artefacts. The pleasures of Persia are incorporated into every dimension of your dining experience. Favorite appetizers include Kashk Badenjan (fried eggplant topped with kashk, fried onions, mint and garlic), spinach salad with tomato, onions and mushrooms and the freshest of Iranian crisp crackling bread. They are famous for their stews as well as their kebabs. Try the quintessentially Persian Kabab Kubideh that’s marinated in saffron and onion or Khorest Ghormeh Sabzi (lamb stew with kidney beans, fresh lemon and herbs). Their rice (especially the one flavored with broad beans and dill) is highly recommended. Renowned for having the freshest of prawns, try them marinated in saffron and mustard on the charcoal grill. If you have room try the Persian ice cream and finish off with mint tea with Persian sugar. Shahrayar’s seating capacity spaciously accommodates 64 and is open for lunch from 12:30pm to 3:30pm, and for dinner between 7:30pm and 11.30pm.
