We spent almost an hour searching for this restaurant. Just when we were about to give up, a kind stranger enquired with us and pointed into a small alley next to the main road. We finally found the famous ‘Jarchi Bashi’ restaurant in Isfahan, Iran.
It is a nicely renovated old hamam with great interiors. Just as we entered the restaurant we were greeted by him. He had a twinkle in his eyes and a sweet smile spread on his face. We returned his greeting of ‘Salaam’ and he led us inside. We were taken aback by the sheer beauty of the place. He quickly briefed us about the history and significance of the hotel in flawless English.
After learning that we are from India, he disappeared into a room and brought an Indian flag and placed it on our table! When we asked him if he actually knew which was Indian flag or if he checked it somewhere, he confidently told us that he knew all the flags of the world! 🙂
He also helped us order vegetarian food and made us so comfortable!
