Khayyam Traditional Restaurant...

adorned with ornamental and decorative lighting
Had lunch at one of the famous and traditional Iranian restaurant in downtown Tehran one Saturday afternoon last August after a group tour of Golestan Palace complex with our ALC members and their families.
Located amidst one of the busiest areas around the main bazaar, Khayyam restaurant is reputably one of, if not the oldest (as it claimed to be), traditional and original restaurant in the city. According to the local, it was originally part of the 300 year old mosque complex and was restored within the past few years.
Beautifully and incredibly decorated inside out, the restaurant serves typical Iranian food, mainly kebab, abgusht, eggplant, dizi and a wide range of other authentic Persian dishes.
After an exhaustive trip, the relax and cosy atmosphere of the restaurant provides the right place for us to unwind and savour the brilliant food waiting for us on that eventful day.
