We were recently talking to some
friends about good restaurants in
This is a cozy little place near Niavaran, even though it is not on the main street and is not easy to find, once you get there it is worth the effort. First of all you are delighted with some lovely
flower tubs just outside and a doorman who also helps with the parking with a broad smile and good manners. The restaurant is long and narrow. It is well decorated and practical, despite its narrowness.
The menu is a delight just to look at and is very well presented. The food is good and beautifully decorated. There is a good variety for all different tastes. In the introduction on their menu it says that the idea behind the Lounge is to have foods and tastes from different countries served in a modern ambiance.
They use many herbs and species and they try to make an unusual marriage between different ingredients by using them in an untraditional way. These are very demanding goals, and I must admit that some of them have been achieved. They have a special house drink that I suggest you try it first as it does not agree with all tastes. The service was medium since only one of the three who were there to help seemed to do their job, which meant that one was rather rushed.
The restaurant was opened about 18
months ago by two cousins who lived in
In my opinion the whole idea behind the Lounge pleases young people more, may be it is the size, the shape or design. But it is for sure a good place to visit and to take your guests or treat yourself and the family once in a while.
We give good marks for food presentation and taste, above average for service, pretty good marks for ambience and quality, and over all we give them 7 out of ten.
We have a few pictures for you to get a feel of it. Bon appetit!
