About 30 mintes from the town, towards the Arab area is the Payab Restaurant, recomended to me by friends... a restaurant worth visiting to soak in some Parsi (Iranian) culture.
There is an indoor and outdoor eating area - thanks to the great weather we chose to sit outside and listen to the live band - playing the Iranian flute and drums...amazing music - but coming from a person who doesn't really know Parsi music it doesn't say much!
We chose to sit on chairs as opposed to sitting on the carpeted platforms - the ambience wold have been better on the platforms but I don't think we could have taken sitting cross legged for too long!
Payab serves authentic kebabs with rice, a variety of salads and other Iranian dishes ..the lamb kebab was to die for! There are different types of lamb kebabs too - one just chunks of lamb and the other is like lamb patties.
We wanted to just stay there forever - it was so relaxing! For visitors to Kish Island I absolutely reccomend The Payab restaurant.. its more expensive than other restaurants, about USD 40 for the 3 of us..but worth the money!
