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.

This is my favourite place to eat. The food is of a consistently high standard, I can genuinely recommend every starter on the menu. The mains are served with perfectly cooked rice and the pickle side is mysteriously phenomenal. I've been here enough times to know any really bad review could only come from someone with an agenda. The staff... More

Terrible food, rotten meat!!! I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone. I feel obliged to say this since there was a huge difference between the reviews and the actual restaurant and the services one receives. Lot of things were bad including not friendly staff, rotten egg smell of glasses and a very blunt environment. But the most important thing... More

I have been here twice now. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is perfect. It is only a small restaurant so on both occasions I have been with large parties. We literally had the whole restaurant to ourselves. The family who run this restaurant are so attentive to your needs. We could bring our own alcoholic beverages as well... More

We've been here at least 15 times and never had a bad meal. Iranian food if your not familiar with it is a little like Greek food, with kebabs and rice very popular. Authentic Persian dishes are also on the menu, non of which i would describe as spicy, but all very flavourful. This restaurant is also inexpensive with a... More

Two of us were the only guests - weds evening. Consequently no real atmosphere to comment on.The food however was excellent quality and the chap serving was very pleasant and helped us with the pronunciation of the meals - we like to try ! Did think it was a little expensive.

I've been here a couple of times and found the food to be delicious. I have been to another Persian restaurant nearby but Arian is better. No alcohol sold, but you can bring your own which is really useful.
