My wife and I made a last minute decision to go out for a meal with our daughter and decided to go to Golzar having read good reports. As it was a Saturday night we called ahead to book a table. When we arrived, we realised that we needn’t have bothered as there were only two other tables occupied. We... More

Having recently moved near this area, my husband (who is Persian) and my family were very much looking forward to trying out this restaurant, although a little worried by some of the negative reviews. These proved to be very true. My sisters in law were visiting us from Iran, and being excellent cooks themselves certainly know when they are eating... More

This was our 2nd visit to the restaurant, the first time was just after it opened which wasn't a great experience however we thought that it may have been teething problems. First the good points, the food was good and plentiful and the staff were friendly. What made the night a disappointment was the service, it was so slow. For... More

We had been a few years ago and we were satisfied with the food. However, more recently we could not believe how bland the food tasted in comparison with out previous trip. The restaurant is titled 'Iranian' but honestly the food is far from Iranian food and many Persians agree that the the food did not taste like what they... More

My wife and I visited on a Saturday night with her sisters, who were staying for the weekend. Very friendly and attentive staff, who ensured that we understood the various vagaries of the items on the menu. We started with the meza for four, and were all blown away by the variations in flavour of the different dishes. We didn't... More

You honestly cannot complain for what you get. The portions are on the large side but does not denegrate the quality. The chicken is of exceptional quality compared to chain restuarants and tge rice is akways well cooked. The lamb is also very tender. The flavours of the marinades is gentle and foes not overpower the flavours of the meats.... More

We have been coming back to here for over the last few years. I can only say "FANTASTIC FOOD" and a gorgous pub as well. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The landlady has really gone for the high end looking venue. I for one just can not complain for the well looked after and well run restaurant and pub.... More

This was our 3rd visit to this restaurant.We have never been disappointed. It claims to be Persian and whilst I can't argue as to its authenticity it strikes as of an "Arabian" background with a full explanation in it's menu. I will not claim that it's the most fantastic food I have ever tasted as the presentation is very simple.... More
