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!

“Great experience”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

I ordered takeout from here late one evening after a tiring day out. The food was delicious, made promptly and accurately and the service both on the phone and in person was excellent. I would go back here any time. It lives up to its rating.

“Make sure you stop here for food!!”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

I've got to be honest, this is the sort of restaurant that if I had walked past it, I would have given it a miss. That would have been a huge mistake. I'm so glad we stopped! The menu is extensive, and the food lived up to our hopes. A complimentary salad was provided on arrival. We had the eggplant dip to start with (get this- I don't like eggplant, but this was lush!!), followed by the kebabs. The chicken kebab was particularly nice.

I look forward to the day when the restaurant expands, and it becomes licences or BYO!!

“Great food at a good price”
Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

Don't be put off by the average decor and takeaway feel of this restaurant as the food was fantastic. We had the eggplant dip for entree which was Yum and the lamb shank for mains was also Yum! It is a popular place to eat and we were lucky to get a table. I had not had Persian before and was not disappointed. The restaurant would be great for groups and families but the atmosphere would not suit a romantic dinner nor is it a fine dining experience. Would definitely recommend it and will go back when next at the Gold Coast.
