I ate a lot of iranian food so I know how it have to be. This restaurant serves good food, but nothing special. And the portions are really small.

The Kobideh was great, better that Persian restaurants I've been to in Oslo. The service was the best I had during my vacation in France, with a solo waiter who made us feel comfortable. The restaurant was small and cozy.

Nothing exceptional in the food. We would have like to taste something typically Iranian but it was like Libaneese food. But still,the food was good and fresh and the staff friendly.

Interesting dishes that we haven't had before and the meat was so tender that melts in the mouth. Very friendly staff. Make sure to reserve as they get busy in the evenings. Good value .
