The food really is not half of what Iranian food should be. There is no flavour, blend overpriced food. The staff is really not bothered at all, not to take the order or bring anything. Just chatting amongst themselves. I am so disappointed, as being...More

Great location in the Medinat Hotel Dubai, by the hotel canals, with nice views of Burj-Al-Arab. The food was below expectations. Whilst the meat itself was very good and tasty, the dish presentation was average. The rice alongside the meat (part of most dishes) is...More

Delicious food with family friendly atmosphere, great service and the most tastiest bread ever. My favorites are Kebab Sultani and Jojeh Kebab. I love to take my visitors in Dubai to enjoy the authentic Persian food and enjoy the beautiful views of Burj Al Arab....More

The prices at Anar are quite high...even compared to its counterparts in the touristy area of Souk Madinat. The atmosphere is lovely and the food is flavorful. Service is not very good.

Without the entertainer I would consider this restaurant extremely overprized. But given that it is in a major tourist spot not so surprising. However the kababs were outstanding. Cooked to perfection. Service could be better.
