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!

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

This place is really living off the good reviews here and obviously not repeat customers hence the below standard food. Considering the price its ok but there a few things that need to be fixed. The first being the food it lacked something. The salad was tasteless, the saffron rice had no saffron and lamb was bland. This place reminds me of a kebab place trying to be more! I wouldn't go back!

Dear Maria,

Thank you for writing your honest opinion about us. As difficult as running a small restaurant was during the long, dusty, and noisy LRT construction period in Surfers Paradise, you still had and will always have every right to expect and to receive the best quality food and service. I have nothing but to apologize for your past experience here, and sincerely hope that you will give us another chance in your next visit to Goldies. As a side note, we are now using our new home dressing for our salads and to be honest, it's becoming popular. We very much hope to impress you this time around!


Yours truly

“Genuine Persian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

Out for a family dinner and came across this little gem. Very down to earth with quick, straightforward service. Great flavours, better than most Persian restaurants I have been to and at a very reasonable price. The baclava is home made and spectacular!
