We looked on trip advisor for somewhere to eat before we went to the Alhambra n read some of the reviews on the Cyrus.

I'll start with the positives.... The food is outstanding. For such a small out of the way restaurant I was really impressed with the quality and flavour. The skewered meat and rice tasted as good as any restaurant in Greece I've visited. Unfortunately the service was pretty shocking to be honest, which is such a shame as the food is... More

We were a group of 6 going to see 'Wicked' at the Alhambra in Bradford and we were literally googling places to eat on the train on the way there. I'm so pleased that we found this cracking wee restaurant which deserves to be much busier than it was. Decor was clean and bright, trying to give you a feel... More

Having driven past the place for years, I went out of sheer curiosity. And I was not disappointed. Everything was beautifully cooked and seasoned and was an absolute joy to eat. Cant wait to go again, Polite staff, great food and great atmosphere. You have to try it for yourself, you will not be disappointed.

Having heard that the restaurant had changed management I decided to check if it had affected the quality of food compared to the quality when we visited in July 2014. The answer is that the food was excellent.

We were slightly apprehensive given some of the mixed reviews but the 14 of us who rocked up on a Friday evening couldn't find fault. Although there only appears to be one waiter he was very friendly and attentive. Would highly recommend getting 4 mixed starters for £9.95 - fantastic value. In particular I'd recommend the halloumi, dolmades & calamari... More

the quality of food was amazing, the only problem was that I couldn't see this restaurant with such a fantastic service was not busy enough, maybe people doesn't know about this place yet the waiter was fantastic and he was trying to give the best service as much as he can, strongly recommend.

This restaurant also does a takeaway option which I found accidentally. So glad I did, fabulous food of restaurant quality despite ordering as a takeaway on mad Friday. I will definitely be visiting the restaurant after tasting the food. The menu is great, so many lovely choices. Nice to have something a bit different, healthy and tasty. Great find.

I'm a long standing customer of Cyrus, or 'Billy Ray' as we refer to it. It has always been a failsafe place to get a huge portion of tasty nosh at a bargain price, not gourmet by any means but right enough. So when it changed hands and became a 'Persian' restaurant I wondered what would happen. What happened was... More
