We came here for dinner on Saturday night, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was excellent, very friendly staff. It was busy, but that shows how popular it is! I ordered the Noon-o-kabob, which included two skewers of meat, one lamb and one chicken. The most was beautifully tender, nicely spiced but not at all spicy. We will happily return... More

We had lunch here recently. The food was quite good. We have not had Persian food before therefore there was no comparison for us but being lovers of all kinds of food, particularly those with spices we must say we enjoyed our selection. We particularly loved the lamb which was tender and full of spices. We also had some great... More

Great place to enjoy authentic and HALAL Persian cuisine. The price was reasonable but the place was a bit crowded and popular, but easily accessible from the main boulevard. The food was reasonable tasty and service was acceptable.

Group of us went and the food was enjoyable, it was simple but done well and we all enjoyed our meals. Tried some of the dips which included the Hommus and the Eggplant dip and as someone one doesn't like either they were actually very nice, full of flavor and would have these again. The disappointment was they shut at... More

Very unique flavour. I never had Persian food before. Ordered the chicken and lamb shank dish. The food is delicious and I even asked for extra gravy to pour over my rice. Portion is very generous.

Description
Iran is a country with a diverse geography and ethnic population. It sits at the centre of the former Kingdom of Persia, one of the world's oldest continuous major civilisations. Iran forms a bridge between the Middle East and the Far East in the centre of the ancient Silk Road, a major trading route which goes back tens of thousands of years. Persian cuisine has influenced many world cuisines, and has absorbed elements from other cuisines as well. It's no surprise that Persian ingredients such as saffron, pomegranate and spinach have made their way into other cuisines! As ancient traders took their wares to the corners of the world, they traded goods, bringing back the eating habits and ingredients from Greece, Rome, Turkey, Russia and India. Today's Persian cuisine traces its roots to ancient Persian ingredients and recipes, and is enriched by the great tastes imported from the rest of the world!
