Very Good!

Very good authentic persian food. Though the dough was a bit too thick and rice could be been a bit dryer. Still great food and we'll be back. Hope dessert is added to the menu soon.

We selected this restaurant based on the great reviews on tripadvisor and we were not not disappointed. All the meals we ordered were fantastic and the portion sizes were huge. The lamb I had was tasty and succulent washed down with some cardamom tea. Best of all was the atmosphere due to the very warm and attentive staff.

I must say, Erfan certainly has a great manner with his guests. He goes to great lengths to ensure satisfaction and comfort. The appealing menu and warm aroma from the kitchen had my senses piqued. The taste of the meat from the skewer straight from the grill, mixed with his special rice, was deeply satisfying. Bravo, Highly Recommend.

Last night on the coast and we were looking for something different, but tasty. Liked the thought of a middle eastern meal. We chose the Shiraz Special Mix Plate (Good for 2 person) and it was great. Only $33.00 we thought very good value for money. We also had the tea which was a good accompaniment for the meal. The... More

The staff were lovely and very welcoming, however the food tasted as though it uses very poor quality meats, the presentation was not very eye catching. However this was my first time eating persian food and so perhaps it is the way it should be. The tea was lovely
