I cannot say anything about this restaurant except it's absolutely perfect for everyone's palate!!! You just pick any food in the Menu and I guarantee you wouldn't be disappointed. The service is exceptional thanks to Marina so patient explaining the menu for us. But as I said every meal is edible to your optimum level of expectation. Love your food... More

We visited with our two kids and staff were super accommodating. No kids menu but that was ok, didn't expect one as it wasn't on their website. Fantastic food, very fresh, lovely flavours a little bit different. Huge serves for our mains. Staff were awesome. Will go back for sure! Great experience there and so many things on the menu...

Food was fantastic - we had not had Persian before but loved the food. Staff were great...friendly and prompt. Setting was wonderful - we dined outside with two teenage sons - certainly intend to visit again. Value for money - lovely food.

Beautifully seasoned and spiced food without the heat of some cusines (we're not fans of chilli and curry). Friendly, informative service from the lovely waitress who patiently answered all our "first timer" questions and explained all the dishes to us. So impressed we are going back again before we travel home (interstate)

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!
