Noosh: Must-try Iranian kebabs on Kantstrasse

We're about to introduce you to your new favourite kebab spot: Noosh. This cosy Iranian restaurant is quickly becoming a Berlin foodie favourite.

Perfectly grilled kebabs and an impressive range of vegan-friendly options: Noosh is the new Iranian gem serving up some seriously irresistible Persian cuisine.

When Iranians go out to eat, there is one thing in particular on their plates: kebab. These long meat skewers are best cooked over charcoal, and are the delicious staple of most Persian restaurants. Those who want a vegetarian option meanwhile have usually had to make do with saffron rice.

However, that’s not the case at Noosh, which opened on Kantstrasse in the spring. This small restaurant offers a vegan kebab to rival its many meat options, consisting of meat substitutes, grilled eggplant, mushrooms and tomatoes.

If it’s meat you’re after then their lamb fillet is grilled to juicy and tender perfection. Each skewer is served either in a sandwich or, more traditionally, with grilled tomatoes, salad and the cucumber yoghurt ‘mast-o-khiar’, plus fluffy, buttery Iranian rice with a crispy bread crust. To accompany it, try the Iranian answer to Ayran, ‘Dugh’, or help yourself to some black tea from the samovar.

While Noosh doesn’t seem to have quite decided whether it wants to be an Imbiss (you order at the counter) or a restaurant (tale service-style), the kebab alone is worth the visit.
