“Horrible food, experience and very over priced”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

I went to this restaurant yesterday and it has to be the worst Iranian restaurant I have been to. The food was very ordinary and the serving sizes were very small. We ordered two dishes. The mixed grill and the fessenjan. The mixed grill was £14.95 and there were only about 4 pieces of meat. For that price I would have expected a more generous portion and greater variety. The feesenjan only had one drumstick! The rice of both dishes was served cold. We also asked for some yogurt with our food (something that is usually complimentary with Iranian food) and we were charged £4.95 for it. The only thing that was decent was the dough(yogurt drink). Our meal for two came to £45.00 which is extraordinary as we did not have any wine.

Small restaurant in Shepherd Market serving traditional Persian cuisine. I love middle-eastern dishes and this restaurant did not disappoint, topped off by friendly and attentive staff.

I am always suspicious when the food is not always prepared on site. Mediocre food , poor service, I would give this one a miss.

“Tasty, enjoyable and friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

Knowing very little about Persian food, we put ourselves in the hands of our waiter and I'm so pleased we did. His recommendations were spot on and the chef then cooked our bread in front of us in the oven. Superb wine, very tasty food and prompt, very friendly service. £30 a head, plus wine
