“The worst experience we have ever had”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

We heard from a friend that this place is a good persian restaurant. There were just three customers at the time, but the waitress was not available for 15 minutes. My friend asked for water. The taste of water was disgusting. After seeing this, my friend ordered soft drink.

We ordered Vaziri kebab and "baghali polo with mahiche". The kebob was okay, but the lamb was cold and hard to chew. The meat was not fresh. After seeing all of this, we complained about the cold dish and they warm the lamb again. I guess they just use microwave. Sorry to say that, the waitress needs some basic customer service training. We had a nightmare here, never back again.

“Great ethnic food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

In an old Tim Horton's coffee shop some of the best Iranian food we have had. Fesenjoon is a special order. Great daily specials. Large portions, great salads, bbq'd meat good healthy eating. Free tea. Great place but the stuff on the TV is really annoying. Friendly staff to assist first timers. Good lunch specials too.

“OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

The owner/chef is nice enough of a guy only he insists on preparing everything spicy where there really is no such thing as a spicy Persian dish, too bad. I tried emailing them twice to no avail.
We also experience too salty dishes, one so salty that we had throw them out, sigh. Hate wasting food!!!
Does anyone know a decent Persian restaurant in London or Hamilton?
