Greens N Grills is not an out-right Iranian restaurant, yet its menu is dominated by authentic Iranian kababs and even a khoresh (stew) or two. That is mainly thanks to this man, Enayat Rahimi, a Lari-Shirazi veteran of Hatam and Noon & Kabab who runs the Iranian side of GNG’s kitchen.
The rest of the menu is a mishmash of Indian grills and whatnots for the health conscious. My advice – focus on the Iranian section.
We ordered an Iranian mixed grill for two but told our waiter to make sure the kababs were NOT overcooked. The GNG mixed grill comprises of a skewer each of koobideh meat, koobideh chicken, tikka masti meat, tikka masti chicken and saffron chicken. It is served with complementary soup, mast-o-khiyar (cucumber raita) and a basic green salad making its AED85 pretty good value (remember this is for two). Interestingly, I liked the saffron chicken and the koobideh chicken the most and the tikka masti chicken the least (it was dry). The tikka masti meat was a little undercooked. Believe it or not, I would have compared the kababs at GNG’s to Noon & Kabab had Enayat not told me of his association with them – they are similar, although these were better.
Service was friendly and accommodating even before we met Enayat. After that it was pure Shirazi hospitality = amazing. The ambiance of GNG isn’t anything to rave about, but if you’re in the area and crave decent Iranian kababs in a clean, respectable environment with good service this should definitely be a consideration.
