Nice food - would return

We visited here with friends - a little cramped when busy but food was enjoyable and worth a visit and in return. We let our friends order the starters as they are regulars and for mains we had a mix of meat kebabs with rice and salad.

I dined here last night and both starters and main course were nice. As starter we had mashed aubergines and some Iranian bread and for main course I had a traditional Iranian dish: it was a stew with lamb, aubergines and peas served with Iranian rice. When we asked for the bill we received a complimentary rice pudding with cinnamon,... More

Starters - nothing interesting. I always go for olives, humus and bread. Best thing on the starter list. Mains - traditional and tasty. The skewer dishes are very expensive for what they are. However a decent big portion! Jasmin rice is the tastiest thing ever! After about 10 mouthfuls you feel their dishes could do with a sauce. It's very... More

Visited several times and the service we had was brilliant especially during Iftar time. They served real middle eastern cuisine, cooked with perfection and was in fact agreed by our Jordanian colleague. The only set back is that the place can be too crowded during peak hours (well, almost at all times). I prefer to be seated nearer to the... More

This is an awesome place to eat. The food is just delicious. We always book as we know it is popular. Our Iranian friends come here and have recommended it to us. I particularly like the Iranian tea.

The restaurant is in the middle of Hagley road, therefore finding a parking spot can be a bit hard. The restaurant itself is quite cramped and loud, but they had enough waiters and chefs to take orders and serve the food quickly. The food was good and fresh, although some dished didn't suit our taste. Quite expensive for what we... More

Had a lovely meal here on a Sunday night. Our table wasn't ready on arrival at the time we booked so we popped to the pub for a quick drink. Food was good but decor could do with a tidy up. Will be visiting again

Very busy restaurant but the food is delicious. It's recommended to enjoy the Iranian cuisine but the space is limited and you may need to go early or wait longer.
