Best restaurant in Chorlton by far

From the street the brightly lit restaurant doesn't look like it serves the best Middle Eastern food in the whole of Manchester, but from your first mouthful you'll know you've hit the jackpot. Do not let appearances put you off for a second. The food here is fresh, delicious and truly authentic... read more

This restaurant is way out in front, in quality and presentation of food, service and value for money. We took a friend to celebrate his birthday and he was so impressed - he took a card from the restaurant and promised to bring his family and friends.

Love this place! The food is mouth watering and fresh! My favourite dishes are the kashk bademjan, sabzi gormeh and the kebabs. It is also a BYO venue so works out at very good value for a night out. If you haven't tried Persian cuisine before then you should start here as you will not be disappointed!

I have visited Arian regularly over a period of several years as I live nearby. I've been in big groups or just pairs, and every time the service and quality of the food have been exceptional. It's fantastic value for the quantity and quality of food, and as it's bring your own bottle, it works out as a great value... More

I've been to arian a few times and have never been disappointed. The food is delicious, the staff are friendly and attentive and it is easy to park nearby or the bus station is over the road. The restaurant could do with decorating as it is all very white and modern but it doesn't really reflect the atmosphere and experience... More

Have to admit never been to Iran neither have much experience with persian food. However, love the chicken rice, kebab here. My iranian friends and family love this place, they say the food is very much like in Iran. Cozy ambiance and a feel of a casual home dinner. Good price as well.
