The dishes from our kitchen are healthy and delicious because only the freshest ingredients pass our chef's standard.

Finest ingredients
To ensure the best dining experience with us, Shabestan takes prides in using only the finest ingredients. We use imported Persian flavoring in our dishes.Saffron, also referred to as the golden spices because it is pricier than real gold, is used generously to spice up the taste with other authentic herbs. We use olive oil together with fruits, such as pomegranates, prunes and raisins and nuts. The ingredients are rich in natural goodness. The delicate blend of fine Middle Eastern spices, fresh herbs and the finest ingredients help produce a unique culinary experience that's colourful, healthy and delicious.

Succulent Barbecues and Charcoal Gills
We only use premium lamb, beef, chicken and fish, and you will find the richness in their taste as they are charcoal grilled on spot. Freshly barbecued spring lamb, spiced chicken, succulent tender beef fillet and even fresh tiger prawns, all cooked in traditional Middle Eastern spices, are prepared to order in our show kitchen.

Rice and Bread
Shabestan Persian breads are not to be missed. It is all freshly made on our premises in a traditional clay oven. It is crispy, yet soft, and it brings out the full flavors of cheese and yogurt. It is great to go with fresh salad. Persian rice is absolutely unique. It is the soul to fine Persian dining. To prepare the perfect rice, the right type of rice has to be carefully selected. It is soaked in salty water for at least 48 hours prior to any preparation. The preparation involves cooking, baking under attentive care, and perfected by saffron flavoring. We believe that the meticulous preparation of rice brings you the masterpiece in your dish. Shabestan makes excellent vegetarian stews. The well blended beans and vegetables in herbs offer full flavors. Certified Halal Food Preparation
