Persian experience in Birmingham

Heartwarming welcome. Lovely waitress who explained the food in full detail. Tried the Whole Sea Bass Grill which was defo worth the price, maybe needed a bit more seasoning but the green chilli yogurt sauce added to that. My boyfriend had the Lamb Shank, so soft, so lush, so nice. Nothing to... read more

Visited with friends. Service and food were great; the lamb was tender, the salad was crisp and the rice was fluffy - can't ask for more!

I've walked, driven past here for years and never been in. What a fool! The food is delicious. We had a three course meal with drinks for £40. The kebabs are really tasty. Staff really friendly. Apple tea and baklava are a must to end the meal. Thank you

The place itself looks mighty small from the outside and it's small as you enter, it's simple decor with a Persian feel and you expect something simple but when you order and taste a mouthwatering dish you understand don't judge a book by its cover so pop on down for a Persian delight...tiktiktiki

The first thing you notice when you enter this little bit of Persia is the large number of people eating here who are from the region of Persia. Its always a good indication that the food is going to be both authentic and of good quality if those with a Persian background are eating alongside you. My wife and I... More

They welcomed you with a big smile, seated you away from the door - away from the wind. The food was made fresh and little wait. It was full of flavour and tasted fantastic. I throughy enjoyed thier tea, along with starters and mains. Very helpful and attentive staff. Even though the place is on the smallish side, it's packed... More
