Stay away! If you know how Iranian food is supposed to taste don't bother coming here. It was awful! The kabob was dry, I had cinnamon in it, and tasted more like Arab food. There was not one food item that we like! Don't bother coming here if you plan on eating Iranian food, etc.

We were outside during a late afternoon so I am not commenting the Persian interior, which some will certainly appreciate. The waiter did not seem very interested or friendly and while serving our starters still within a reasonable amount of time (just) he forgot to bring us our plates. The main course, spicy chicken, was disappointing in size and taste.... More

AND PRICY! I am very disappointed. After reading reviews and seeing the pictures, I thought of checking this place out for some authentic Persian food and it was anything but authentic. Very pricy for the quality they offered. Some of the dishes were not even Persian (not a flaw really) but the kebabs were way below my expectation as a... More

I've been here with friends on a couple occasions, most recently in May, and every time I go I ask myself why I don't think of this place more often. Everything I've had is quite good: nicely seasoned beef kabob, delicious hummus. They also have giant platter options on the menu -- a good choice when you're in a group... More

In the more quiet part of Raday Utca, this restaurant with an impressive interior and authentic kitchen offer good food and ceratinly is good value for money, given the area. Food is very tastefully prepared. Original menu choices available.

We would call here daily for Mojitos. They were very good and the lady who served us was very friendly.

Service was really slow - waited too long for menus, then to give the order. We could see other tables had same problem. There seemed to be only one server for a large number of tables in our upstairs area of the restaurant although we saw at least two other servers working also. Server didn't write down the orders and... More

We went to a company team building dinner to Shiraz with quite high expectation and left at the end of the night with huge disappointment. Almost everything that can be messed up, was actually messed up. They started to serve the food before the whole team arrived, so by the time the last ones got in, the first arrivals have... More

Ordered a wine and it was 2000 HUF (6.5 EUR) per Deciliter. So for two wines (OF COURSE one glass of wine was 2 dl) I paid 6000 HUF. NOT RECOMMEND THE PLACE. There are much nicer and quest friend places nearby. Try one of those, don't waste your time here.
