“Fantastic Hidden Gem”
Reviewed April 22, 2014 via mobile

Blink and you may pass this hidden gem by. Myself, Elaine, Louise and Euan visited this restaurant tonight. As always the food was excellent, the staff very friendly as they always are and No pressure to go when you have finished eating. If you have not tried Persian food before then please give this a try. Hamid, Tiny et all will be delighted to see you.

“Best service and food in town”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Without a doubt the best takeaway in Aberdeen with a menu that stands out and is a bit different. Made to feel like a valued customer every time!

“Delicious food, friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

The food was great and the staff were lovely. We were too full to try the Iranian ice cream, but will be back!

“Take away”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

Just had my second take away from Shawarma, the £10 stew deal. It was lovely, it's always good to try something different.

“Very poor”
Reviewed April 10, 2014 via mobile

Over priced for a microwaved rice, over cooked chicken and koobideh kebab. I have travelled to dubai, London and Middle East for work and dined in many persian restaurants. This sort of place gives a very bad name to a persian food. I won't be returning to this establishment. Very sad
