Description: Iran is a country with a diverse geography and ethnic population. It sits at the centre of the former Kingdom of Persia, one of the world's oldest continuous major civilisations. Iran forms a bridge between the Middle East and the Far East in the centre of the ancient Silk Road, a major trading route which goes back tens of thousands of years. Persian cuisine has influenced many world cuisines, and has absorbed elements from other cuisines as well. It's no surprise that Persian ingredients such as saffron, pomegranate and spinach have made their way into other cuisines! As ancient traders took their wares to the corners of the world, they traded goods, bringing back the eating habits and ingredients from Greece, Rome, Turkey, Russia and India. Today's Persian cuisine traces its roots to ancient Persian ingredients and recipes, and is enriched by the great tastes imported from the rest of the world!

First time having Persian food. Staff were excellent and explained the dishes. Food was absolutely beautiful. Meals were big and cheap and service was excellent.

Recommend this restaurant to everyone!!! Will defiantly be returning when visiting Surfers Paradise again.

The place seems to specialise in kebabs (chicken and lamb). The skewers of meat are huge! And are served with some salad and a healthy portion of rice. There are other options on the menu, but what I described is what I had.

The food was of high quality and was very tasty ... and for this area it was priced very reasonably. This was probably my best dining experience (at least so far) in Surfers Paradise.

Dear Katie,

Our very first Canadian review! Thank you very much for describing your dining experience with us.

p.s. If you ever come back to the beautiful Goldies, there’s always a place which knows how you like your cafe latte (with soymilk, eh?!)

Yours truly

Dear commentator,

It is our honor to receive such review from a Tripadvisor "Top Contributor". We'd like to thank your kind considerations and yes; we understand your point on our décor. Hopefully, if we survive all the constructions of light rail project in Surfers Paradise, our very first plan is to make our place more like a Persian traditional dining.

Yours faithfully,
Erfan Jalilian

We were not that impressed by this food. I have had amazing Persian food and wanted our family of four to try it. Was quite plain and dry. Staff nice enough but not really a restaurant more a take away style with some plastic chairs and tables.
