The food was very well presented and tasty, especially the starters. Portions are a bit big for the main courses which can look a bit overwhelming. Service is OK but it was very quiet so some atmosphere is missing.

Wasted time and money. We sat in the empty restaurant at 6:30 pm to have a decent meal. We were not served properly. The staff held a birthday party in the restaurant for a colleague while we were seated having dinner. We had to yell to the kitchen staff to be served and waited on. Everyone was on break it...

we tried the one in 360 mall. It has a nice atmosphere, with great interior, giving you the farsi touch. The food was delicious ... so fresh and yummy, pretty authentic in taste, one of the best in Kuwait. Price wise, not soo cheap but worth every fils.

Food was amazing. Service was terribly slow and uncoordinated. We were seated and our table did not have napkins and glasses. The lady serving us looked confused. We also had to request new cutlery when they removed our salad plates. Having said that the food was excellent. Highly recommend their royal kabab platter and marag bamiya (okra stew).

We are fans of Middle Eastern/Persian food. But this place needs further development in terms of their recipes. There are better Persian restaurants in Kuwait. If you're done with other restaurants then maybe you can try this one out. We had to change the food due to smell related reasons.

Shabestan is a great Iranian Restaurant in Kuwait. The main dishes that we had were great. The appetizers were average. As for desserts, they didn't have a great dessert collection, but the coconut icecream that I had was amazing. Another down side of the restaurant is there service. It was very slow. Which is a real shame.

Visited this restaurant at 360 mall several times. the food was excellent but i have to agree with other reviews that chefs have to be steady in salt level of food.
