So when it comes to Persian food I'm very fussy as it's my own heritage . This place came across very Arabic first but the menu sure has everything you may want at a Persian restaurant . My favorite dish and 'gauge' , to rate a Persian restaurant , is Ghorme Sabzi and I'd only give it a 7 out... More

Food was just ok and the service was slow. There are several more Arabic places near by that are better and sincere with customers.

This place was very average and the hummus was weak and they were out of falafel for some reason. The menu looked generic Middle Eastern and not specifically Persian as advertised. Not terrible, but nothing special here. Service was friendly though.

Was drawn in by the music outside as I walked by... place is basic, certainly not fine dining but the food was exceptional... very very well cooked.

Naab has served the best Iranian food in Kuala Lumpur for many years now. While the place has changed hands and many non-Persian items popped up on the menu while prices have been rising as well, those dishes that are genuine Iranian are of excellent quality. Naab is one of our must-stop places whenever we are in town.

Disgusting food , rude and disrespectful waiters , overpriced and low quality food. Koobideh( mince lamb kebab) was disgusting and full of fat. Joojeh ( chicken kebab) was made of minced chicken rather than chicken portions and lacked saffron which is main spice for marinating chicken . Barg kebab had very unpleasant taste. Vegetables in Salad Shirazi was totally different... More

Food's quality not bad; however, it doesn't match the price tag. To my opinion it is not a real Persian restaurant as it's been running by a non-Persian owner. If you have a crave for Iranian cuisine, it is worth eating there though. Besides, try to improve your body language as it will come in handy while placing your order!
