“A piece of Persia in the middle of halifax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2011

The restaurant is small but the owners are so sweet, so hospitable and so willing to give you an exceptional Persian culinary experience in the heart of Halifax. Zarah and her husband will welcome you with open arms. The food is so good and they make you feel at home.


Go check them out you will have an exquisite feast

“persian perfection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2011

have eaten here several times now as i am a regular visitor to the adjacent Westin Hotel. can't say enough about the quality (and quantity) of the fare. Blink and you'll miss it though. I did. tiny tiny stand alone building out the front doors of the hotel and 100 metres to the right on Hollis.

Samosas that leave you weak in the knees (lentil, chicken, beef, lamb...). They can do it all up for you take-out as well. And the motherly chef and co-owner will be happy to answer any questions about the cooking as well as heap more rice or sauce or anything you may want. But you won't want even though you will because you won't be able to. You'll have to roll home. Fantastic.

Not super cheap. But once the Westin have sucked the last bit of patience out of your wallet and soul with their gouging room service, you'll forget all about that.
