|Located in front of the entrance to Sungkyunkwan University in Daehang-no, the restaurant is owned by Mr. Shapour, who came to Korea in 1993 to study medicine at Hanyang University. He opened the restaurant where he does the cooking himself in 2002 to promote Iranian cuisine.
With the helpful advice of a Korean friend who acted as “taster,” Mr. Shapour slightly modified the recipes of each dish to suit Korean tastes. The most popular dish is the whole chicken curry combo. A chicken is stuffed with various spices and boiled to remove any odor. Then, it is sautéed lightly in oil and served with a pomegranate-sauce curry.
The restaurant also serves various types of curry rice. When ordering, you should choose how spicy you want it on a scale from 2.0 to 4.0 with 2.0 being “medium.” If you want to try genuine Iranian food, order the Shami kebab rice, a lamb dish seasoned with tomatoes and onions. The menus are available in both Korean and English.
