Outstanding food. Slightly cramped but very friendly service. Highly recommended. The dishes are mouth watering and servings are generous. Slightly pricey but worth it.

Had an excellent meal here for my husbands birthday, fantastic food and lovely staff. Definitely going to return soon but would recommend booking in advance if you are a large group or going on a weekend

We visit this restaurant on a regular basis. Though we have to wait most if not all the time to get a table its totally worth it. The meat is beautifully soft and the Persian rice is to die for. Not to forget the complimentary pudding which we have almost every time. Can't wait to go again.

It was our first Iranian restaurant and it was excellent. We took one starter to share with 4 different tastes and with sesame bread, it was really good. after we took main meal with the lamb. The Lamb was meltingly soft and the rice well flavoured. The quality-price ratio is excellent. The staff was really busy because the restaurant was... More

Originally I went with some friends a good few years back and had a wonderful experience. Unfortunately this time round was not as good. The rice was dry and tasted slightly stale. The meat was well cooked and the juices were fresh. The service was good but the overall experience was not as good as our last experience.

I been here few times along my family n friends. Whenever we visited without booking, every time we have to wait to get the place even midweek. The decoration is quite nice Persian style. Starters are bit expensive but presentation of food and salad was nice. The taste of food is superb as well as efficient service. Only downsize is... More

This was one of the best restaurants in Birmingham that I visited. Their restaurant has authentic persian decorations and rugs. I have been here on 3 occasions and on 2 of these (dinner) it was busy, giving me the impression that this is a good place. The other time I came was around 5pm when it was just starting up... More

The place was full, and as we came, our seats weren't the best. The place isn't very big though and the seating area feels cramped. The food tastes great. A sweet small dish was given at the end on the house. However, we felt it was on the expensive side for the service provided.

Me and the missus popped in one mid week evening. Small cafe like restaurant that serves great tasting lamb chops and grilled chicken with a gorgeous dressed salad. Lamb cube kebabs were also very good and seasoned perfectly. Only downside is that alcohol is not served on the premises. Highly recommend a visit.

A smallish restaurant serving excellent food. Essential to book at busy times. Service was speedy and attentive. The kebabs were great as was the lamb and aubergine stews. Good choice of starters and sweets. No alcohol allowed, but the fruit cocktail was excellent. Fully recommended.
