BIX Restaurant in Tehran


By Syma Sayyah, Tehran
Good Restaurants Guide in Tehran Series


Tehran is not normally considered a city of great restaurants, but here and there one comes across examples of something like a good restaurant which is not some sort of traditional kebab house.


We have recently been to a few new places and would like to share our experiences with Payvand readers who are interested and or are looking for a something a little different when going out to eat  in Tehran .



Bix is a Californian/Italian pizzeria located on the first floor of the Ghandi Shopping center in the middle of Ghandi Avenue.  It is under the same ownership as Monsoon which is a Thai restaurant.


When we went to Bix, it was a warm evening and it was quite pleasant to sit near the covered balcony, and yet feel the cool breeze.



The menu, in English by the way, is not extensive, but it compensates with first class service which does not come across as plastic and we found it warm and truly pleasing.  The young staffs are actually there to make your evening and time more pleasurable.   There is a variety of large sandwiches and pizzas and limited meat dishes.  The food is good and tasty.  In our opinion the presentation was well done and pleasing to the eye



Generally speaking we found the Italian food, the starters  and the dessert menu very good .  The fish was a little dry and they only served French fries and almost no vegetables.   It would be nice if we had a choice of baked or steamed potatoes, and some steamed vegetables or a choice of greens.  The two specials on the night we were there were Angel Hair Pasta and Tandoori Chicken Pizza and both were very good.



We loved the cool yet efficient service, and also enjoyed their choice of music, (we even asked them to copy a CD for us, which they did with pleasure!).  The toilet is rather tiny and a little bit of fun or a hassle depending on your sense of humor.


Overall we give it very high marks for service and a relaxed young environment.  Good marks for the food and we can only hope that they keep up the standards while keeping the prices down.   Final verdict 8 out of ten and please make sure that you make a booking at the weekends.
