I'm really surprised at the number of positive comments. Ate here with 3 friends and we all said that we found the food disappointing due to lack of flavour. The dishes sounded like they would be full of taste and just weren't. Between us we had x2 chicken and x2 lamb mains and we all said the same. Maybe the... More

After we left Wine & Wallop, we went into Burton Road looking for some place to eat. On a Friday night. Without reservation. we felt very, very lucky when we got a table straightaway at the very full looking Pomegranate, which I admit, was not our first choice. We went in, considering none of us had had Persian food before.... More

We spent YEARS walking past this place and never went in. For absolutely no reason in particular. We finally went with friends and it was magnificent. The food is stunning, the service excellent and we've been going on a regular basis since! (though we need to get a visit in soon as we've not been in 2015 yet!) Top stuff.

Sat in here now it's 3pm and the places is empty. Very surprising as the lunchtime menu is fantastic. Persian lamb from here is very succulent. Well worth a visit.

Lovely restaurant, friendly, helpful staff and delicious food at reasonable prices! The lamb and chicken kebabs were extremely tender and subtly spiced, combined with half and half salad and rice it was a delicious meal. The halloumi salad was a perfect starter. Would loved to have tried the Persian ice cream but too full! Very popular so best to book.

What a gorgeous little Persian/Iranian restaurant. The decor is lush and features mosaic lanterns and tapestries that transport you to right to Persia. The menu is an education and will have you trying things you have never seen before like my favourite Koo Koo Sabzi which is a dense herb omelette served with a yoghurt dip with pomegranate seeds.
