“The food is as good as the wonderful aromas that greet you as you come in the door.”
Reviewed October 15, 2011

This restaurant has quickly become one of my favorite lunch spots. The fresh vegetables and hummous, served with homemade tzatziki sauce and kebabs are very good. Try the saffron baked chicken and see what you think.
the owner and staff are very friendly and take good care of their customers. The kitchen can be viewed from the counter area and it is as clean as any I have ever seen.

“If you've never tried persian food then you must go here!”
Reviewed August 21, 2009

The atmosphere is minimal but the food is absolutely amazing and unique within Victoria. The true test of a restaurant is how it stands up to the scrutiny of people from that region. One of my best friends (who is originally from Iran) loved the food so much she has taken almost every member of her family there whenever they come to visit Victoria. The kabobs, their specialty, are mouth watery and fantastic. You get several choices as to what kind of meat you want and they are served with saffron rice.
