Loved the location, the atmosphere, the service, and the food, especially the chicken with bones dish. As tender as it gets. Also ask for tahdig (crispy rice).
Very helpful and attentive servers! Love the hummus! Easy reservation. We ordered platter for 2 and its definitely worth it! Will definitely come back to this resto!
The food was great as was the service! We will definitely return and recommend this restaurant. The waiters were attentive and very helpful and it was great value for money.
Excellent service... food really nice. Try to get a table as far as possible from the neighbouring restaurant Brusselssprout for a quiet dinner with friends
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.
Excellent choice. You can taste real Persian food in Shabestan restaurant. We were enjoy to spend our time there. Perfect service with tasty Persian food and sides. Yummy...
The food is great , if you like Middle Eastern food - that is! Ambience is great too. We are a family of 5 and all of us enjoyed our dinner @ Shabestan
Best Persoan food, best hospitality, and sexiest belly dancer! I love Shabestan! I will definitely repeat. Good for business dinners. Good for birthday party. Good for dating!
Overall, the meal was delicious. The meat dishes are a tad expensive but servings are fairly generous so we ended up taking the leftovers home.. My vote goes to the lamb kebabs (the ones made with minced lamb) - very well marinated and tasty! The only downside was the sudden interruption of the meal with the too-loud music that accompanied the belly-dancing performance.
Shabestan deserves many ******. A Delicious taste of Persian food, great atmosphere, and excellent wine are the winning points. Affordable price and perfect location. Warmly recommending.
Got my table without a problem. Food came fast. They've redone the menu recently, and the pictures are gorgeous. The food was fantastic, the minced lamb kebabs especially. Nice riverside view and breeze. Price is a little steep.
The food was great and we enjoyed all that we ordered. They even obliged with a brownie for a birthday treat. The service can be improved though. Cashier took a long time with the payment.
Excellent customer service by the team. Very attentive and good food. Waiting time can be improved given that there were not a lot of people present but overall good experience.
Just the Prices were too high. food was delicious. place was beautiful. Just the Prices were too high. food was delicious. place was beautiful. Just the Prices were too high. food was delicious. place was beautiful.
Great food and ambience. The pot bellied belly dancer who could barely dance seemed to be making a mockery of the dance. That was the only let down.. but we came for food and cant complain.
Excellent food, services and ambience. Expect to pay about $80 per person. The meats were grilled to perfection and the desserts are heavenly. Must try at least once to experience the richness of Persian cuisines.
The food was excellent and the ambience was great. There was entertainment in the form of a belly dancer. IT was easy to make a booking at the restaurant.
Excellent food. Must have platter it contain all kind kf meats. Starters are really good as well. Very good ambiance friendly and cooperative staffs. Really enjoyed our dinner.
Food is excellent. we chose the mixed appetizers platter and a mix of different kind of meat... They were delicious and perfectly marinated. We will surely be back
Excellent food and service. Desserts are a must try. Also can host large parties which can be very good. Slightly expensive but the food is totally worth it.
Awesome food Very nice grill the lamb shank was very well cooked The best hummus I have had in Singapore Most of the dishes were good
It was my first time to eat such a delicious persian food, we enjoyed it alot. Perfect place, clean, excellent service. Definitely we'll visit it again👍👍👍
Food was very tasty and well presented - ideal for a group with the grilled meat selection - makes a change from the usual bland middle eastern fare served up in Arab Street - service a bit slow though.
Was very quiet when we went. Service is good, attentive and staff know the menu well. Food is decent to good (good for Singapore). Well presented and overall came away happy.
Great food and service.Ambience is super.The Chilli paste given is out of this world. We started in ocetodeb and have introduced so many of our friends. Keep up the great job
Thefood was Amazing. The service was really great as well! The manager himself ensured all our food was served properly and gave us different recommendations. We were also given complementary dessert.
We had a good time having dinner with our staff. The restaurant served good food and the staff were all friendly. We will surely keep this restaurant in mind for our next company get-together and recommend to others.
The food was nice but we got a shock when we received the bill ...the platter we asked for was only shown in the menu but no pricing against it....and we ended paying more than SGD 600 ...am sure can find better priced places elsewhere. I would not go again
Excellent service and amazing food. Has improved a lot from my first visit last year. What else can I say ? Just try it out.
Really good food, also good service, and a beautiful place. All this at a reasonable price for Singaporean standards (about 60 S$ each). Highly recommended
The environment is nice and the food is tasty. I Enjoy it. And there is this special performance of persian dancing which is quite entertaining.
Excellent food. Everything was very authentic and service was attentive as well. The location is also great for various occasions, including date nights. Highly recommended.
Excellent service! Ying and team were very accommodating. Food were excellent and great variety. Entertainment of belly dancer was wonderful. Wines were chilled and good.
Food was fantastic! Authentic persian food with some belly dancing as entertainment. The barley soup was my absolute fav. We will definitely be returning soon.
THE best in Singapore. No matter what you order, you will leave with smile on your face. Here are few suggestions though: Chicken Wings, Mezze platter & Jojeh mastee.
Having lived and travelled to the Middle East for years, this is Perhaps the most authentic I have had in Singapore. Great food !
Great Food, Great Ambience, Great Service. Price a little steep, but for such level of service, it's value for money. I'll definitely come back and recommend this restaurant!
Great little place. Good location. Good food. Great service. It's expensive, but the food is very good. The ambiance is very good as well. Not too noisy.
Food is nice and ambience is also good. Service from the staffs are good and welcoming. Can recommend friends to come over for a dinner and gathering.
Great quality and authentic Persian food. Service was friendly and reasonably efficient. One area to consider improving would be to simplify / redesign the menu structure.
Very good food, very good meat (lamb, chicken) quality. Yet a bit too expensive. A pity that the bar nearby is a bit too loud too
Nice Environment, Good abundant food altough a bit too salty and oily. High prices, but in line with the zone. Staff not very present despite the local was quite empty
Location is good and ambience pleasant, though the food is overpriced and the service quite inconsistent. We had a good time overall, though felt we overpaid for what we got.
The service was very slow! One waiter was trying to run around and serve everyone, it was pretty bad! He would always forget what we ordered. Good food though when we finally did get to eat!
The place had a nice ambience. They had a belly dance show in the evening. Food was a bit pricey but it tasted good. Service was good.
Food was good. Starters were yummy and disappeared fast enough! The platter took quite a while to arrive though....but was worth the wait. Overall good experience.
Food was good. Ambiance and location perfect! Nice and friendly service. Nice choice for Persian food in Singapore. Will recommend this place for a romantic dinner.
