The Camel burger shop is a short walk north on Imam Khomeini Street from the street which leads to the Jameh Mosque. On the right hand side of the road, as you walk north.
We were led there by a chap called waiting by the road with his bicycle.
The shop isn't much to look at. Laminex tables, vinyl covered chairs and tiled walls.
Favorite Dish: You cave come here for the camel burger. It is OK.
We had a lunch at theMalek 0 Tojjar restaurant and teahouse, located in an old home about 200 years old. The teahouse, with a little fountain in the courtyard, is truly delightful, while the adjoining restaurant is less charming - possibly because it's quite large and crowded. Food, however, was OK.
Favorite Dish: We each tried a different dish, but the most popular one happaned to be dizi... everyone ordered it. Dizi is a sort of soup/stew made from lamb, chickpeas and dried limes served in a black bowl (see photo). It is served with another smaller bown, empty - which we set aside. Only later we discovered the right way to eat dizi.
One should first drain the broth into the smaller bowl, and then drink it straight away - only secondly one should go for the remaining meat and vegetables - which need to be pounded into a paste and eaten with bread. Stupid tourists we were - but the taste was still good enough.

Set in an old bath house, this tradtional Iranian restaurant is probably the best in Yazd. It has a domed ceiling and there is a small pool and fountain inside
It has a relaxed atmosphere and our small group sat around a long table and had a good time.
Favorite Dish: Try Yazd Soup, made with spinach, lentils, white radish and fennel. The chicken fesenjan is good too.
My very favourite place for coffee is located inside Alexander's prison, underground, in what people call the 'prison room'. it's a small place with soem tiny table and chairs, and a little stand selling tea, nescafe, ice-cream and juices... Definitely not a place for great tea or coffee, but the atmosphere is just incredible. There's also a little fountain in the centre, so maybe rather than a prison, it was a water reservoir.
Favorite Dish: None at all - but if I have to pick something, I would say the ice-cream. The coffee was really horrible and watery, the tea tasteless. But the place rocked, really.
What a wonderful restaurant... we stayed in yazd at the beginning of our trip, and we thought that this restaurant was really good. Thinking back now I can safely say that it was the best restaurant we found in Iran - where food is admittedly good but tends to be repetitive... kebabs, kebabs, kebabs... In this restaurant, on the menu, there was no kebab, which had me fearing I was not going to have any at all... how wrong I was.
Favorite Dish: There were many interesting dishes, including even a rarity: stewed aubergines - garlic flavoured and delicious. We tried several dishes, including camel stew (very delicious and tender), saffron chiken (delicious) and a fesenjun out of this world. Fesenjun is actually a sauce that accompanies stewed meats, made with pomegranade juice, nuts, cardamom and aubergines... What else? Even side-dishes like rice were the best we've had...
It was recommended in our guidebook and while we also stayed there, it was no question why we had most of our meals there. They served Persian, Indian food plus some European dishes in a special dining area overlooking the beautiful courtyard with the fountain. Prices reasonable.
I tried “fesenjun” which is a sauce of pomegranate juice, walnuts, eggplant and cardamom served over roast chicken and served with rice. It’s considered a Persian classic but I can’t say it beats the delicious kebabs.
Though mentioned the rooftop was not functioning. Certainly if you don’t come here to dine, it is advisable to rest at the benches around the courtyard after a long sightseeing day having a cup of tea and qalyan. It’s also a perfect place for socializing as many locals or other fellow travellers come here as well.
Yazd is a wheat-growing province, and the bread in Yazd was some of the best I've ever tasted.
The Persian word for bread is naan.They usually sell the hot naan loaves by the dozen. I just wanted one, so the baker gave it to me for free, and waved my offer of payment away.
Favorite Dish: Hot naan!
Talaar restaurant is one of the best restaurant in Yazd, Delicious food, clean with nice place. In this place you can served Iranian foods.
