great food!

For a little buffet they put out some great food! I highly recommend the lentil soup. good food at a reasonable price, authentic Iranian food isn't always easy to get so it was a nice change.

We ate here on Friday night. The buffet was good - large selection of freshly prepared food but plates are cold so food gets cold very quickly. My husband ate from the menu- a small starter and very good lamb and Barberry rice but portions were absolutely enormous. Impossible to macke an impression on it! Very reasonable price in what...

You have the usual Lebanese appetizers (Hummus, Mutabal, Taboula...etc) and all of decent quality and I really liked the platters of fresh vegetables and white goat cheese on the side very refreshing. For main course choices you have good range of Iranian/Middle Eastern main dishes including Iranian Kebabs (meat & chicken) and good yogurt tikka and 2-3 types of rice... More

Well its not fair enough to be Persian and talk about Persian dishes. However, the cooking style and the taste is among the best, you can trust with quality and expect the best. They provide self service bar on definite hours: timing matters.

Well I find the food a bit expensive compare to the tast of the iranin food you get in area of muscate. There is another resturnent in Madinat sultan qaboss where I considered you can eat the best of kabab and in very cheap price.
