We have always overlooked this place as it always seems quiet. Popped in last night as everywhere else was booked up and so glad we did. Had an aubergine dip with caramelised onions to start which was amazing, followed by chicken kebab which was perfectly cooked. Lovely service and you can take your own booze too. They don' take cards... More

Upon arrival we sat at our table and waited, then waited some more before finally the wait staff arrived to take our order (Not blaming the staff as for a very busy restaurant there only... More

We were up from London for the weekend visiting family. They said we had to have a meal at Arian as they made the best felafel and ice cream ever, and they weren't wrong. Everything we had was great, particularly the sea bass, and the ice cream, wow, it is the best I have ever tasted. Can't wait to go... More

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 and the wonderful young couple who cook and... 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!
