I came here for a friend's birthday dinner and liked the food, the mixed starter (Iranian bread with various dips) was good and I especially liked the ghormeh sabzi. They certainly don't skimp on portions! The place seems to be very popular with the local Iranian community, which can't be a bad sign.

This place is wonderful. Yes it is small but it makes up for that with the great food. The staff is really helpfull and the yogurt drink is something else. The only thing I recommend is that you book in advance. It's stuffed all the time.

The food was nice but was a little over priced. You might get a good service depending on your waitress as the one we got argued with us infront of other customers.

A friend of mine recommended this delightful venue Saturday 18 October 2014. It was full when we arrived, and the staff were busy attending to their customers. We waited for 25 minutes before we could be seated, but that was because we did not make a reservation. The ambiance, decor and music that was playing in the background transported me... More

Staff pleasant, food barely warm and bland. Poor value for money.£2 for a can of Pepsi that you pour yourself! Portion sizes of main dishes are big but bland so... More

This Restaurant is located on the Hagley road close to five ways, it is not the biggest restaurant but certainly one of the best, with authentic and delicious Persian / Iranian food and a quaintly decorated restaurant with friendly staff. The food was amazing and as my cousin said the rice was exceptional, better than any other place he has... More

You pay slightly moor for a average food compare with London area. The service is excellent.there was no vegetarian food available. The range of iranian dishes was limited to few we'll knowns.
