Lovely location, very enthusiastic waiters. Knowing Persian food, think it lacked authenticity, tasted almost more Indian than Persian. Mediocre service once food is served... our second glass of wine never arrived, even after reminding 2 separate waiters.. we are not sure of going back. Too many other great places to eat in Singapore.

From the moment we stopped to look at menu till the moment we left we felt relaxed and welcomed. Service was prompt and very friendly, all the staff had a smile and seemed to enjoy what they were doing. The food was tasty with good variety as well as being well priced for the area.

To begin with ,the guy who took the order acted like we were there to eat out of his pocket. We ordered a mixed kebab and a shawarma. The kebab was probably made a couple of days earlier and thawed to be served for lunch.The meat was cold,tough and did not smell good. Even the meat in the shawarma was... More

While the view is nice, the ambiance is not all that special. The service was efficient till the point we ordered. After that, things tended to take a lot longer. The Sisha was ok, but you can't really go wrong with Sisha. The wine was decent. The food, nothing to write home about. Overall, would not go back or recommend... More

The mezze platter wasn't great and our first shisha, double apple, was aniseed flavoured and we changed to mint which was great. If you are looking to smoke and watch the river this is an excellent choice.
