This place was a good find, the food was great and the dishes were large you can easily share one dish between two. Good value if you think of it. Will definitely revisit

This place is a great place to dine if your looking for a good value and great food. This is was a very authentic place in terms of persian food. The rice was very moist and buttery which was amazing. We had the mix plate and it was very delicious and the pomegranate chicken soup was done well. Overall, I... More

Expensive food that I found was fairly poor quality. A little bit of stew (hardly a cup) with a huge serving of rice for $17, wasn't particularly tasty and certainly a rip off. Won't be returning.

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
