Excellent

Great food, atmosphere, service, price. Definitely going again. Very friendly without being over familiar. Saw three women debating whether to go in as I was leaving: told them to go in; they did and they won't regret it.

Down a side street off the square, flanked by unappealing "touristy" photo menus, this is a hidden gem. The food is delicious and the host/chef delightful. Fantastic value for money for lunch or dinner.This quirky little find will leave you with a smile on your face. Closes for the season at the end of October sadly !

We stopped here for lunch. They provide a set menu with 2 or 3 courses. The two course was £6.49. This also included a drink. We had vine leaves stuffed with aubergine and houmos with flat bread starter. Main course was a mixed kebab and chicken kebab. Our son, who was with us had pizza and chips with a drink.... More

The soup was amazing as was the home made flat bread. I live in Kinross and... More

The charming host in this little restaurant off the main square cooked our meal for us. He is Persian and so the food was authentic. The décor was very interesting and typically Iranian. The prices were very reasonable and we enjoyed our very different meal. They only take cash.

Interested to try Persian food but found it fairly bland. The service was very rapid and the chef great to chat to. The decor was very "tired" and the lighting too high to make for an intimate experiece.

Food here was better than the one and only chipshop. An amazing variety of food, all cooked to order and at a reasonable price.
