Located in front of the entrance to Seonggyungwan University in Daehangno, the restaurant is owned by Mr. Shapour, who came to Korea in 1993 to study medicine at Hanyang University. He opened the restaurant in 2002 to promote Iranian cuisine where he does the cooking himself. Most dishes are localized to suit Korean tastes. With the helpful advice of a Korean friend who acted as “taster,” Mr. Shapour slightly modified the recipes. The most popular dish is the whole chicken curry combo. A chicken is stuffed with various spices and boiled to remove any odor. Then, it is sautéed lightly in oil and served with a pomegranate-sauce curry. The restaurant also serves various types of curry rice. When ordering, you should choose how spicy you want it on a scale from 2.0 to 4.0 with 2.0 being “medium.” If you want to try genuine Iranian food, order the Shami kebab rice, a lamb dish seasoned with tomatoes and onions. The menus are available in both Korean and English.
