Something different!

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.

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.

This small restaurant can easily be misunderstood and if you ever go there try not to judge the book by it's cover. I've been there many times with many friends and I have received mixed reactions. If you like fancy restaurants, waiters asking you if you like the wine before they serve it then this is NOT the right place... More

We ended up walking out, waited and weren't ever asked for our order. We saw people be sat and finish course while we waited. Even tried to get staff attention and were brushed off. Must've been a very off day

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.
