This place does the most amazing Persian food which tastes like it does back in Iran. The mehzi starter is amazing and really tasty. Gives you a try of everything. Every time I usually get koobedhi which is incredibly tasty. I have tried other dishes though and they are all great. We go here often for Iranian new year and... More

We had lunch here on a Saturday, I did book but the place was quiet and apart from us there was only one other table occupied. Service is friendly and efficient.The decor reminded of some restaurants I have visited in Iran which added to the authenticity and there is a pleasing water feature in the corner. The menu is extensive... More

The food here is exceptional and totally traditional Persian food. The mehzi to start with is a must if you are in a group! The vine leaves are unreal! I would go for koobedhi for your main! Lovely!

I honestly wish I was Persian so I could experience this food everyday. My cousins and myself went recently and it was beautiful. Set in the West End of Glasgow, it's a quiet area and was great! Inside, you really feel the Persian atmosphere, with all the show-pieces and such. We ordered the platter for 2 for 3 of us... More

I've travelled to Iran so I can say this restaurant is indeed nice and traditional. Food can compete easily with the ones from Iran. Very pretty restaurant with lots of traditional decorations. Food was great for the price, and very good portion size, I took leftovers for next day lunch. Even reheated it was great!

I went here with two others after a very long day at a conference.We didn't book a table, but the waitress offered us to a table for an hour before the next guests arrived. Two of us had a mix of starters, such as freshly baked naan bread, hummus and chicken salad. The portions were plentiful and absolutely delicious. The... More
