Great food and service

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.

I found this restaurant by chance during an overnight stay in Birmingham and went in because it was full when all the other restaurants I passed were empty. They created a new small table near the kitchen to fit me in and were attentive to all their customers. I had a really nice salad starter - feta, herbs (tarragon, coriander... More

Have been to this restaurant many times. One of the best Persian restaurants in Birmingham. The food is always of very high standard and the staff are extremely friendly. Would definitely recommend this for those who have not tried Persian food before. This is an excellent way to sample this exotic cuisine. The space is quite small, do prior biking... More

Had a thoroughly enjoyable meal here and wouldn't hesitate to eat here again if we were to be in the area. Prices very reasonable (3 course meal for two with one fresh pineapple juice and one large bottle of Perrier was £54); service was pleasant & prompt. It's a dry (ie no alcohol) restaurant with a small seafood section and... More

Fathers’ Day and I fancied a change from my usual curry, besides I went for one on Friday. I chose the Shiraz partly on good reviews and partly on recommendation from a friend. I don’t think the wife was impressed when I said we were going for an Iranian but tough it was my day. It’s an unusual little restaurant,... More

We visited this place after a few of our friends recommending it to us. The food was good but a little bit over-priced for the service provided. The seating area quiet cramped and tight.

My husband and I love love love Persian food and so this place is a regular place to visit for us. Oh my God, the rice is to die for, I would love to find out the secret to it so I could eat it every day. Meat cooked to perfection. It is a very small place but the interior... More

This is a wonderful quaint little restaurant that serves superb persian food. Family run and the food is good quality. The service is warm and definately worth a visit if you want to experience a slice of Persia.
