Isfahani Manama Reviews
Delicious Persian Delicacy Mar 14, 2016
Isfahani is a restaurant located in the Juffair region of Manama, Bahrain. It lies on "American Alley", which is a convenient walk from the naval base. It's location is amongst the more popular restaurant chains such as Ihop and Chili's.
Isfahani delivers top quality Persian cuisines and features a delicious selection of meat dishes and delicious salads. Their blended drinks are all natural with no additives. They also do deliveries. Their bar is non-alcoholic due pertaining to Iranian law though Bahrain allows for alcohol consumption. Therefore their bar consists of mixed juices, yoghurt drinks and sodas so don't expect to get intoxicated there.
My friends and I enjoyed a mixed appetizer consisting of hommous, tabrizi, and tabouleh. Their Shirazi salad was fresh. I've personally enjoyed their special: the Iranian Mixed Grill, which consisted of Lamb, Shrimp and Chicken kebabs. The combination of meats were fresh and flavorful enough to not require any additional sauces or seasonings.
This was one of the most real experiences I've had with Middle Eastern dishes. I finally feel like I had a taste of culture in this part of the world. Isfahani is one of my strongest recommendations for what any traveler could enjoy while relaxing in Bahrain.
