The food was fantastic! Attentive and informative waiters with a great dining atmosphere. Indoor seats were comfortable, accompanied with great classical perisan music. Will go back again.

Food is awesome, we had a platter of everything and i must say they are perfect (not too dry). the highlight was the starter, soup and OMG the lamb chop is amazing. Perhaps if we decide not to dine indoor - it will be rated 6 (as there was a event on the same evening - abit loud). Service team was prompt and Chef Ying took care of us thru out the evening. She explained the food to us as it was served - nicely done and timed. Wont hesitate to dine there again - for sure !! Thanks Shabestan!!

The dinner with the family was to celebrate my Wife's birthday. Overall the location and ambiance were great. The food was outstanding. I am a vegetarian and found that they had enough choice for me :-) The staff were very attentive and even brought out a cake for my wife at the end of the meal. This cake was not the normal simple one like at other restaurants. The cake was small but actually very very good and was one of the highlights of the dinner. The only negative was the loud music during the belly dancing. The staff did apologise for the noise though. Overall a fantastic experience

Tonight was our 4th time at Shabestan. Each time we have experienced very nice and friendly staff as well as excellent food. Our friend we had invited this evening said - this is the best food I have had in Singapore.

This is my second time at this restaurant. I loved the food, close to the real thing I must say. The hummus and ee-jow soup are my fav. So was the dough. It didn't get the 6 that I would've given is because of the service. Not that it was severely lacking but I would've expected them to be more attentive to the diners since there weren't many of us. It took a while to get their attention. We had lunch past 1.45pm on a Sunday, not exactly rush hour.

I have been to Shabestan for dinner on many occasions and the food has been consistently good. However, something needs to be done to improve on the aircondition which has been consistently bad.
