This is my 5th time in Hatem - Marina Mall, the 4th was in Al Wahda Mall. When you miss homey bamya, you should go there. Staff are very friendly. I took the mix with the grilled fish skewer. The portion is enough and the bread is great. See photos below for all plates ordered.

As shown in the title: this place offers great Persian food, in good amounts for a decent price. The setting is so so, being set in a mall, but the food makes up for that. We will definitely return

This is my 3rd time in Hatem. Great food for very reasonable price. Hatem Mix platter is my favorite. Last time I tried the combo appetizer, it was really good. I also ordered bamya with beef , it tasted as if it was home made. All rices are great (white/yellow).

Recognising that we weren't sure of our way around the menu the waiter was very helpful. I fancied a kebab. Not sure if that's what I ended up with but it tasted good, was lean and tender and rather large! No complaints there. A taster dish of local cheese and side salad was a welcome free addition. My wife had... More

Nice selection of Iranian / local dishes, a cut above normal Mall fare and good value. Plenty of seating so easy to get a place (at least when we were there).

Not familiar with Iranian restaurants, we were surprised being placed in a separate room. Privacy here is guaranteed and it took a little while before we realised we had to ring a bell for a waiter to come. It felt strange how we were talked to from behind the curtain, but this seems part of the tradition. Food was simply... More

We visited this place on impulse as we had never tried Iranian food. The restaurant seemed a little tired but big choice on menu, lots of kebabs of different types. When we ordered the waiter brought us flat bread and a salad platter, and the food we ordered was tasty, and we enjoyed it. Wish TA has a good category,... More
