Great atmosphere and aroma as you walk in ... looks so warm and friendly from outside. We had the mixed platter for starters between three. It was about right in portion size and introduced us to the dishes and flavours. Two of us had chicken kebab and the other a vegetable stew. The portions were enormous - lots of rice... More

We were recommended this restaurant and decided to go on our anniversary. The decor is a bit tatty and the toilets are needing a bit of a refurb but I remained hopeful since our waiter was very friendly and accommodating. The starters were fine. I had houmous and nan and both were fresh and fairly tasty. The main arrived and... More

This is a delightful restaurant with a great ambience and exciting food. Service is prompt and friendly, and the feel of the place is authentic and interesting. Prices are mid-range, so good value.

We visited this place for a family dinner. The restaurant is located in a nice locality, has good traditional Iranian decor. The food was really good but the service was below average. My neighbouring table made couple of changes and the staff serving them got really annoyed and stopped serving the table and later served by her colleague. Also I... More

Delicious Persian food . kebabs and rice dishes, Fresh green herbs with fruits such as plums, pomegranates. I advise for having Kabab Kobedah which is combinations of rice with meat (lamb)plus vegetables such as onions, various herbs, and nuts. The staff was not that friendly bit rude. But overall O do recommend the food.

I used to hear iranian music in this restaurant, but yesterday they were playing what sounded to me like mexican music. Very disappointing. It most definitely was not iranian... More
