Decided to try out this little restaurant after looking at previous reviews. We were the only ones in but the owner made us feel very welcome.

We had the special menu which consisted of Mezedes and then a main course. The Mezedes were excellent but very similar in that they were all Dolmades and studded with what appeared to be the same cous-cous based ingredients. So certainly of very high quality but we would have liked a little more variety.

The main courses were two Iranian/Lebanese lamb based dishes, both excellent and served with very good rice.

Glasses of reasonable red wine went down well.

We enjoyed the experience but feel there is room for a little variation.

Cannot fault the service or welcome. There was a lack of ambience but maybe a few more people in there would have helped this
Don't be put off-maybe when it is busier times then the variation will be there for you

Delicious food, freshly cooked. Lots of vegetarian options. Something nicely different from the pub grub on offer in Aberfeldy. Will definitely go back.

Came across this place just by chance and really glad we did! A really friendly welcome from the only guy in the place. I have never been anywhere where one man did the Front of House, Barman, Waiter and Chef. He was amazingly efficient and was obviously passionate about the food and service he provided.

As vegetarians, we were enticed j to here through the extensive choice on the menu. The owner bent over backwards to welcome us and helped us to pick out our dishes. The Meze starter was massive and we could easily have shared one plate instead of the two we received. The restaurant itself is 'bijou' and feels like someone's lounge but it was a lovely meal and you get loads of good food for your money.

Thought we would give Checheks a try as it was the only place in Aberfeldy we had not been to for a meal, the entrance is not the most welcoming maybe that is why we left it until last, but we were rewarded by a warm welcome by the Iranian waiter/owner/cook. Inside is rather small and intimate more suited for couples, Persian cuisine was excellent I had stuffed aubergines for starter and a lamb dish for main and they were both very good. There was however a mix up with our main dishes but the waiter bent over backwards to rectify the situation which did not spoil the evening just made it a bit quirky. Our bill only came to £26 for the two of us including drinks. Take cash as cards are not accepted.
