Visited Reza again for an early evening meal. Excellent Persian food, lovely people and great prices - what more could you wish for? I don't understand why this restaurant is not busier!

Visited this great little restaurant with a group of work friends on the recommendation of a colleague and was not disappointed, wasn't sure what to expect as had never had Persian food before but was blown away by the quality and friendliness of the whole experience.

My girlfriend and I discovered this restaurant by total accident, it was pouring with rain and we were on a budget! Subsequently we ducked in for lunch and WOW I'm so pleased we did, we were made to feel like family, the lamb dish we shared fell to bits and was utterly delicious, we now pop in regularly and have...

Visited on Saturday evening. A very positive experience. Friendly and welcoming. Delicious starters (combi of 3 for £10). Main courses principally lamb and chicken, but with vegetarian options. I had the traditional Iranian Lamb Stew and my wife chicken in spices with saffron rice- all washed down with a decent pinot noir. Very good ambience and reasonable enough prices.

Visited for the first time with friends on a Saturday night 8pm - appeared to be no need to book, although restaurant was reasonably busy. My overall impression was favourable. Tasty food, well priced and pleasant service if a little slow. I found the menu quite vegetarian focused for the starters and mainly lamb choices for the main, which I... More

Nicely presented restaurant with great food. They also serve wine which is a bonus. The one comment I would make is that the menu descriptions don't always accurately reflect the nature of the dish. The Persian casserole was almost a soup with meat but it was delicious anyway.

Thursday night, and Reza was pretty empty. The welcome was warm and friendly, with a good choice of dishes (all with explanations as to what they were for those unfamiliar with Persian cuisine). We opted for the shared starter of 3 dishes for £10 - stuffed peppers, potato supreme and aubergine dip with a nan bread. All delicious - the... More

I had never tried Persian food so I was looking forward to my visit. Upon arrival we were given a very warm welcome and had a choice of where to sit. The lady who served us explained what the dishes were on the menu and she described them beautifully. My meal was delicious and bursting with taste. The whole experience... More
