The restaurant is small - it is located in a former taxi dispatcher hut. The owners, an older couple from Iran, have tried to make it cheerful and welcome. The feeling is very homey, it feels nice to be take care of by those lovely people who put their hearts into the place. The food is good, prepared as if... More

This place looks like a dump as you drive or walk by - a little better inside and the food was very delicious and very interesting. There are three or four tables and it is as it looks from the outside; very small. It felt like I walked into a place in Cairo. It tasted like great street food would... More

Great food full of flavours... When you see this little place on Hollis st you wouldn't believe how good the food could be! They have pretty much all famous Persian dishes and all the ingredients are fresh. This is my favourite mom & pops restaurant and I'd definitely back.

This is a tiny restaurant on Hollis St. in a free-standing brightly-painted building. The owner, who is very gracious, serves the food on china plates. Hot tea is served in small, lovely decorative glasses. You can order take-out if you don't care to eat in since the space is small. The food is delicious, traditional Persian food, just like home-cooked.

Pick up a few chicken samosas...the BEST in town!. The chicken kabobs are yummy, along with the dill rice. Also suggest the baklava.

We always go there when we go to Halifax. The food is very good. It is a family operated place and we always enjoy chatting with the owner. I can't really recommend any plate as all are so good
