As someone who grew up in the Middle East eating Iranian food, I expected a lot from this restaurant and it delivered. My husband and I had the mixed grill. The kebabs were perfectly cooked, juicy and delicious. Just like they should be. The rice was buttery with a strong saffron fragrance. The complimentary side salad was amazing too. The... More

We stumbled across this restaurant while looking for something other than a fast food outlet in Surfers to eat at. What a find. Located on the tram line in the heart of Surfers, with outside dining and super friendly staff who were too happy to explain the different dishes and also suggest what would be enough food for two people....

Our friend recommended this restaurant to my partner and I so we were expecting it to be a great restaurant. Unfortunately, we were pretty disappointing and were expecting better. The waitress who took our order was acting like we were invisible. I ordered the chicken and bray soup, kebab with rice and my partner ordered the same. I liked the... More

This was by far the best value restaurant we(2A,3C)ate at during our recent stay at Surfers recently. For under $70 all 5 of us had a superb tasting meal and a drink each. The mixed platter for 2 has enough on it to feed 4 people!! The lamb was especially good like others have mentioned. The place was packed when... More

Stumbled across this place by accident & was attracted by the $13.95 lunch special... What do you know: THE FOOD WAS FANTASTIC! Food came out quickly & was super tasty. Didn't like the garlic yogurt, but the hummus & cucumber yogurt were both great. Had to remind the waitress to get our drinks, but then they were out in an... More
