Yas Restaurant Review

: This pretty Iranian restaurant sparkles. Bread comes straight from the clay oven and is garnished with pickles and crudités. Starters of kashk badenjan (grilled aubergines and whey) and bal-e morgh (char-grilled chicken wings) play well, and the khoresh e ghormeh sabzi (stewed lamb with kidney beans) delivers flavourful, herby depths. Accompanying saffron rice is nicely delicate. It's conveniently situated opposite Olympia Exhibition Halls, the venue for prestigious antiques and trade fairs. There’s also an outside terrace for summer dining. Prices, however, rise after midnight.
