We have been in this place a couple of times now and each and every time we loved it. The atmosphere and décor is warm, cosy, quiet, welcoming and friendly. They are fully licensed, tried their wines and new flavoured imported beers. Owner/operator run the place and provides excellent service. They are very friendly and helpful and give best advice and information. Their service is quick.
The food is fantastic and large size at reasonable price. Try their eggplant appetizer which I read in a local magazine that won the first prize for the best appetizer in a contest where all big name chefs were attending. Most of the main dishes are different combinations of chicken, beef, lamb, ground beef and ground chicken barbequed on metal skewers served with barbequed vegetables (onion, pepper, tomatoes, etc.) with saffron rice. Other main dishes are different stews including an amazing pomegranate/ground walnut stew, okra stew, celery stew and eggplant stew all served with saffron rice. I loved their lamb shank, try it you’ll love it. They also have “Persian fusion” pizzas that I have not yet tried.
Desserts are also unique there: the local Avenue Magazine recommended trying the Saffron-pistachio rose water ice cream, we did and it tastes phenomenal.
All prices are very reasonable and actually if you factor in the great food, atmosphere and service. If this place was in a more trendy 4th street, 17th Ave., Kensington or downtown you could not find a table without a well advance reservation. It is one of the best places for family dining, business dining or dining with friends in town.
