We came here for lunch (they open at 11:30) and were met with a genuinely warm welcome. The menu was explained in detail (Persian food is more akin to Greek - well spiced, but not 'spicy'.. Good to know!). I had the Baba Ghanoush for a starter, which is enough for 2-3 to share, and for the main I had lamb (bone-in) with an extra kebab, seasoned to perfection, falling off the bone, with just the right amount of crackling.. For dessert we had the baklava, which is different in that it is not so sickly-sweet as some variations I have tried.. There is more more nuts, less honey.. Very nice with some unsweetened tea to cleans the palate! The service was friendly, and attentive (our waiter was the son of the owner), and we weren't waiting long for our food. I can't speak for the authenticity (glad to hear from a member hear that it IS), but we could definitely tell that every effort was being made (we were informed, after inquiring, that the dried berries on the baklava which we thought were pomegranates were in fact another, rarer fruit native to Iran and shipped from Vancouver. We will assuredly be making this one of our go-to restaurants when visiting Prince George, and we look forward to trying dinner here and sampling the live music. The atmosphere is warm and clean, with few tacky tchotchkes that often litter foreign restaurants to unfortunate excess. There are 2 monitors with changing images (Iranian scenery, woman's lib activity in Iran, etc). Very impressed!
