Dubai's genesis as a regional trading hub started with 18th-century Persian emigrants lured by duty-free tax privileges. Their nostalgic descendents (and refugees from the ayatollahs' Iran) loyally patronize Shabestan, whose somewhat dour hotel setting is relieved by views of dhows on Dubai Creek and a live band playing Persian classics Sundays through Fridays. Try marinated kebabs, carpet-size fresh-baked flatbread, raisin- and cucumber-spiked yogurt, and the rosewater vermicelli with mastic ice-cream dessert.—Susan Hack

Open daily 12:30 to 3:15 pm and 7:30 to 9:15 pm.
