“Great food and friendly staff.”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

Had a 2 course dinner there bought on one of the deals sites. Really liked the restaurant, nice lighting, not too bright, so it can create really nice atmosphere. Very fast service, but bare in mind there were only 6 other people there at the time, so do not really know how does it look during busy times.
Anyway, ordered meat ball stew fesenjoon and it blew my mind! The look of the dish was not really apetizing, but once you try it, you cannot stop. It was fantastic sweet and sour souce, something I was not expecting! I would really recommend trying that one.
We also got a dessert: shole zard. This one is really playing on your taste and smell buds, basically it is rice pudding on rose water. Really exciting, although not my favourite, but you cannot eat the cheesecake all the time...Oh, and Merlot was nice.
All together, will definetly go back over there.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

I've wanted to try this restaurant for ages but was terribly disapointed. We went for an early bird but could find nothing we wanted, so went with the main menu.


Dolmeh were very tasty but had been over nuked in the microwave. Main course was just plain weird, we really
struggled to find something that appealed, kebabs are notmy thing. We took the meatballs and were told the
sauce was sweetish, so we had received fair warning but it was very unappealing. Dessert of apple pie was again microwaved, hot on top and cold in the middle, not good. Staff and selection of wine were excellent

“Jonathan”
Reviewed December 20, 2013 via mobile

Had lunch here today which at 9.95 for 2 courses plus tea/coffee is a bargain. The starter choice wasn't wonderful so I settled for soup which was a bit bland however the main course was superb. Staff so so friendly enough but not great I.e stood around watching people eat but didn't ask anybody if they enjoyed their food etc but as I said friendly enough. The decor is nice and much better than the last restaurant that stood in the building. Will definitely return and look forward to it.

“Poor value for money”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Had a poor meal, indifferent staff and overall a poor experience. The menu reads well but does not translate to the plate - such a pity
