Gorgeous food!

I have been here quite a few times now and I have tried a few dishes from the menu. Each time the food and service was excellent!

Have eaten here a few times and each occasion has been enjoyable and highly satisfying. Staff are very professional and welcoming. Also, the saffron ice cream is gorgeous (even if it does give you a yellow tongue afterwards!) :)

I really love Pomegranate, I think it's because when they say "half rice", you know you're getting a huge dollop of well cooked plain rice (just like my mum makes) and the kebabs aren't too much and succulent. I also cracked the dilemma of the food being a little dry (I love meze and sauces), just order the yummy garlic... More

I am visiting this restaurant many times a month. I like the food served, as it is a fresh and tasty food. They have many tasty choices. If you like the sweet and sour souse, then try the fesenjoon. Other that that, the pistaco rice with yellow chicken souse is great too. Also, khubeda is a tasty dish too. Also,... More

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

We have eaten here a few times, and everyone we have taken here has loved it. The food is beautifully cooked and presented. The portions are generous, and the staff are delightful. My personal favourite is the sea bass. I love the fact that all the dishes, both sweet and savoury, have pomegranate seeds on them.

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.
