Shabestan presents the true taste of Persia at Singapore’s riverfront district, Robertson Quay.  Experience Persian’s warm hospitality, culture and food at a modern fine dining ambience.

The 3,200 square feet restaurant at Robertson Quay was recently named one of “Singapore’s Finest Dining Establishments” of the year by Wine & Dine. It is known for serving authentic Persian dishes including Char-grilled Kebabs, Lamb Kubideh, Shandiz (lamb chops), Shah Pasand Chicken, Ghormeh Sabzi (Iranian herb stew), Bahala Polo Machicheh (lamb shank) and more.

The restaurant is helmed by Iranian born Executive Chef Hamid Hosseini who has worked in various Persian kitchens; from traditional kitchens in Tehran, haute-cuisine kitchens in Dubai and modern Persian kitchen in Kuala Lumpur. He was also recognised as the “Best Iranian Chef” in 2012. At Shabestan, Chef Hamid believes in using high-quality, authentic Persian ingredients and contemporary cooking techniques to extract the best flavours for his dishes. He aims to heighten the bar of Persian cuisine and to lead the introduction of New Persian cuisine to the world.

We love the location of this restaurant, you can dine indoor or outdoor by the river. Go for the Appetiser Platter ,which is a selection of 5 selected appetiser recommended by Chef. This gives you a selection to try and prepare you for the main course. For the main course, if you are not familiar with the dishes, I recommend you order the Shabestan Platter for 2, Chef’s recommended specialty platter combo with minced lamb, chicken, fish, prawn, lamb or beef fillet. If your group is larger, you can go for the larger platter. This way you get to try different meat at the same time. Personally I like the Shandiz which is Tender chunks of spring lamb on the bone, charcoal grilled to perfection, with grilled tomato. Served with Basmati rice. Don’t forget the dessert , go for the Persian Saffron Ice Cream, Homemade special recipe ice cream with pistachio, cream and saffron. If you like to order some drinks, I would recommend the Shabestan Signature Mojito.

 

We feel Shabestan has achieved its goal to present Persian food in a way that engages the customers’ senses for a memorable dining experience.
