Few customers but took eternity to get food served. Hummus with overpowering(bad) aftertaste (Old garlic or onion). Overcharged for items not served, when highlighted they offered to return the difference in cash, however not including service charge and GST.

The appetisers are really good. The main meals lack flavour. Good teas. Didn’t try any desserts. Good service and ambience

It was a good experience to have dinner by the riverside with a great ambiance and less noise. Soothing music with in between belly dance performances. Good food that caters to the Asian Palate. Right in the middle of the city yet not noisy.

I ordered platter and it was 65% fish and remaining 35% lamb and chicken. I ended up eating fish out of Platter order. AVOID PLATTER . Otherwise the food is good.

Shabestan offers good quality Persian food, much of which is charcoal grilled - a particular favourite of mine. It has a full range, including many different platters - which are great for sharing - and also now a wider range of vegetarian food. I am...More
