This place has changed hands. This address is occupied by Abshar, another Persian restaurant. According to signboard outside, it has 020 3602 1996 as phone number. The £20 three course menu is excellent

food was absolutely delicious and fresh the restaurant is well decorated with a nice vibe. Unfortunately the service was not sufficient and waitresses looked scruffy but were friendly so a little training is all they need. I love this place and will defo be back x

I've eaten here quite often. They have the best chicken kebabs I've ever tried. I always order the same thing - chicken fillet kebabs served with rice and salad. The chicken is tender and moist and marinated in saffron and lemon - divine! I also always get the aubergine starter (made with walnuts) and served with naan bread. This is... More

Food was pretty good but I agree with comments about service. Ordered takeaway on Saturday lunch time. Took an hour to get here which seems long considering it was lunch time! Kebab was nice and they didn't scrimp on the rice. Stuffed vine leaves were tasty but the deep fried prawns weren't great. I went to the stay rant before... More

This Persian themed restaurant has amateur service, food that is reheated and neither tasty nor interesting. It serves as a meeting place and is popular for that but if you want really good, ethnic Middle Eastern food there are plenty of better alternatives in Croydon.

Have been quite a few times in the past, but since they have changed management, this restaurant has gone down hillll. Service is so slow it was highly frustrating, the food is definately not as good as it used to be. Very disappointed. We received the starters but waited a while for the naan bread, tea at the start took... More

A nice rustic and genuine feel to a different kind from the norm of eating out. A real sense of homage when eating this good honest Persian food.Service was slow from the start,but not rude at all.Food is good, great balance in taste and plenty is served.The naans are easily seen being prepared in there open fire pot and nicely...
