We visited this place for a family dinner. The restaurant is located in a nice locality, has good traditional Iranian decor. The food was really good but the service was below average. My neighbouring table made couple of changes and the staff serving them got really annoyed and stopped serving the table and later served by her colleague. Also I... More

Delicious Persian food . kebabs and rice dishes, Fresh green herbs with fruits such as plums, pomegranates. I advise for having Kabab Kobedah which is combinations of rice with meat (lamb)plus vegetables such as onions, various herbs, and nuts. The staff was not that friendly bit rude. But overall O do recommend the food.

We really enjoyed the meal here. All the food we had was beautifully cooked, and the price was what i would expect. However, it was diff.icult to get past the music. I used to hear iranian music in this restaurant, but yesterday they were playing what sounded to me like mexican music. Very disappointing. It most definitely was not iranian... More

The food was just so good. I had ordered koobideh (grilled minced meat), with rice, it was absolutely delicious, long time ago I had iranian food this good. The meat did also have very little fat which was surprising for us. The staff was also very friendly and obviousely willing to offer good service.

Came here as it was just over the road from where I was staying on North Woodside Road, very close to Kelvinbridge - think the lunch offer very good value but I came around 6 so too late, there was no one else in but that didn't bother me, great music playing. There was so much choice on the menu... More

Been there a few times and enjoyed every time. Lovely Persian food in massive portions and finish off with Persian tea. Always a winner. Only downside is its tiny though cosy. So try and go at off peak times.

We were surprised at the lack of sauce because the food was so dry & lacking moisture...otherwise tash food but the chips were a disaster. Won't use again.

This place was recommended to me by a friend from London. We went there on our first night in Glasgow, a Saturday evening shortly before 10 pm. The first thing we heard from a woman who was standing there was "we close in 45 minutes". Well, at least say hi to your customers. Very rude. Since we love Persian food,... More

I adore this place. The interior, music, food, and general atmosphere all add to a tremendous dining experience. The menu has a wide range of Persian cuisine to offer and you are able to bring your own alcohol with you too. The staff are all friendly, approachable and willing to help you with the menu if you need some tips... More
