Further to my previous comments - as this is a special occasion make sure you ask for a window table - the view of the creek and dhow activity will add to the overall experience.

Description
Dubai’s leading Persian restaurant, Shabestan, transports you to ancient Persia. A medley of exotic flavors waft through the room and traditional Persian melodies play in the background. Look out of the windows lining the dining area and admire the gorgeous Dubai vista with glittering magical lights by the creek, just as you are presented with an array of tender, well-cooked, marinated meat to feast on. The incorporation of fruits and nuts in the culinary creations, as well as the fresh yogurt and aromatic rice that accompany it, blend together beautifully to create a culinary symphony! The live band plays another spirited concert as you break out of the culinary reverie and wait to round up your meal with some Persian sweet delicacies or samovar tea presented in an ornamental glass.
