Had dinner here one night whilst on holiday in Surfers. The food was good. No alcohol served. My favourite dish was the bastani (Persian ice cream) an absolute must.

The food was excellent and staff were even better, very friendly. Try Kabab Kubideh or Lamb shank and enjoy the lovely taste of Persian dishes. I wouldn't mind going there every day if I live in Gold Coast.

Great meals, meat so succulent and tender. Great vegetarian options. Persian Gold is awesome. The place was packed, but service was still good. Great to sit out on the street and watch the world go by.

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!
