About Persian Cuisine Persian cuisine, also known as Iranian cuisine, encompasses the traditional cuisines of Persia and some parts of neighboring areas of Eastern Turkey, Central Asia, Western China and South Asia. It is famous for its variety, with every region having its own distinct culinary tradition, with many highly refined recipes.

The Ingredients If you’re familiar with Iranian cuisine, or Persian food, then there’s a good chance that kabobs will be on your list of favorite foods from that region. These skewers of meat are made from lamb, chicken or beef and are perfect finger foods if you’re looking for an appetizer at your next party or if you just want something simple and tasty after work.

A Review of Daryas by Chef Afshin Maleki If you’re craving truly Iranian cuisine, look no further than Daryas, one of the highest rated Iranian restaurants in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Chef Afshin Maleki trained under some of Iran’s most acclaimed chefs, and he brings his expertise stateside with his tasty modernized Persian food that pays homage to tradition while incorporating innovative new ingredients and techniques.

The Location This family-owned and operated Persian restaurant is located on Sheikh Zayed Road, a main traffic artery in Dubai with easy access via public transportation or by car. It's also just off Al Maktoum Bridge—one of several bridges that connect Deira and Bur Dubai, two central districts of Dubais business district and historic center.

What to Order The menu has an excellent selection of authentic Iranian dishes - classics like fesenjoon, khoreshte-gormeh sabzi and fesenjan as well as unique non-traditional alternatives. Our recommendations include saffron rice (butter saffron is our preference), kabab koobideh and maast o khiar - delicious, homemade Persian yogurt with cucumber, dill and mint that's perfect for cooling off on those hot summer days.

Prices and Reservations Most of our diners come through word-of-mouth and don’t pre-book; we prefer it that way because that gives us an opportunity to provide extra service and give them a more personal experience. However, if you want something extra, we can handle that too: call us and reserve at least three days in advance so we can make sure everything is perfect for your big event.
