A Persian bakery that also serves gelati.
How many fake reviews is this clown going to post? Every week a fake post is posted in ESL English. The bakery food now doesn't make you fat and is most delicious. I would never go there because he is such a goof. Stay away. Any reviewer who seems to have only one post is often fake as are the ones for this place.
I was looking for some bakery action when I stumbled on this place. It is very clean and the service was great. This bakery is named after the famous palace in Tehran. I would say that is probably an overly generous comparison, but it looked pretty good in there. The owner/manager described the various treats on display and explained what they were.
Alas, they also had gelati, so I suddenly decided to skip the baked goods and went with a mango and vanilla gelato cone and some mini-melts.
The cakes were VERY enticing, so I will be back for more soon.
Good for tasty desserts!
My experience with Persian baked goods has been limited at best but we've sampled the wares of this establishment twice in the last couple months. Not knowing any of the pastries and cookies, we ask the woman behind the counter to fill a box with a selection of her favourites (they charge by weight). Both times we've had interesting and varied offerings with the flavours of coconut, almond, apricot, and spices I couldn't clearly identify. Nothing fruity but very tasty.
I've been here a few times now. I like the sweets they make, they are quite tasty. I've developed an addiction for a particular type of their pastries - I believe the English name is Elephant Ears. The problem I have with this place is the service - or lack of. I do not speak their native language but I've noticed that the majority of their customers do. When I go in there, I am usually ignored for quite some time. I have a lot of patience and don't mind waiting while the lady behind the counter chats with a regular in a language I don't understand. I have no desire to mess with their daily routines - I just want to give them some business. The last time I went no one came to the counter. The lady poked her head out, saw it was me, and went back to doing something else. It made me feel unwanted and out of place. I don't care how good their products are - this type of service is unforgivable and I will never return again.
I went here with my sister, shes not into baked goods, so she got some of the gelato, raspberry, it was super tasty, I'm not sure if they make it themselves, but it tasted amazing. I just went and got some of the treats, I got rolls and some baked fritter type things. Everything is very good. I will be returning for more treats soon.
You walk into this place, and I swear to God angels from heaven greet you, and stuff your face with all sorts of ambrosial delicacies.Beautiful music is playing, and the smell from the kitchen is intoxicating. A swarthy gentleman in a baker's cap levitates towards you suddenly in a cloud that reminds you of dry ice. There is a peaceful smile on his face, and he is looking at you with affection. A friendly person appears at the counter, the angels fade away, the baker floats back to his ovens, and you get down to business, and decide what to order. Everything looks so delicious. My advice is to bring lots of money here, and buy buy buy. Then just live on Golestan products for the next week. Eat nothing else. They have magical healing powers.
This is a sweet little bakery that is clean, friendly and there is always something tasty new to try. There is no doubt that these people are motivated by a passion to serve people in the sweetest way they know.
As a lover of travel I always seek a new flavour, and after speaking with these folks I have discovered that the inspirations for these tasty treats stem both from their homeland of Iran, but also include those of France and Turkey. As I have not yet visited these countries, I am delighted to have the opportunity to taste their beautiful creations. The other wonderful piece about this place is that they are open late, everything is always fresh and they are more than willing to make special treats to meets your dietary needs. I have been going here for many years and always look forward to my next visit.
