**TERRIBLE ATTITUDE** No sympathy, cold hearted woman would not allow me to use toilet unless I was a a paying customer. What she didnt know was I had my family with me and we would have likely eaten there. I definitely did not eat there after that. People can have medical conditions and need toilet, but this ignorant woman (the owner) did not understand this. It was empty after a massive convention at the Olympia - I can see why!
I really wanted to love all the food I got as we had traveled from Lewisham to get there. So was very disappointed on the mediocrity of food, despite the very kind woman (manager?)
All the food I had was so bland: the smoked aubergine and the Fesenjan. But big portions so good value for the price, I guess? We got boxes for takeaway.
My husband had a chicken and saffron rice (which I wish mine came with rather than white basmati rice with some saffron rice sprinkled atop), with red berries sprinkled atop. He also got a side order of the yogurt and garlic sauce which was quite tasty. His verdict: nothing to write home about but good enough.
I ended up getting a side order of berries as well as mine was so bland (the Fesenjan sauce was practically flavourless).
My husband enjoyed the tea and baklava - it definitely doesn’t taste like the standard baklava which I enjoy more, as there’s more of a rosewater flavour.
Like I said, the server was so motherly I hate leaving a mediocre review. I’ve just had much tastier Persian food elsewhere.
Stunning Persian food from a lovely family. Value for money was exceptional. Best food in the area!
The food was very average. We tried different dishes but they didn’t taste of much. Quite a few vegetarian options. Service was quick and good until we had to ask many times to get a breakdown of the bill which still wasn’t broken down per dish. It seems we were bothering the waiter. I won’t go back.
The quality of the kebab was impressive. No salad 🥗 with the food except one tomato 🍅 & a slice of lemon 🍋. Maybe, we did not order any salad. However, I'm not complaining. Saffron rice 🌾 was flawless. I will return to this restaurant in the near future. But, not sure when…. Maybe in 3 years
Wanted to offer 5 stars, but changed my mind and I can only give two stars ⭐️ ⭐️ due to lack of customer service staff & an awful attitude of the customer service lady. She said she was the manager, but I expect a high standard from a restaurant manager! I could not truthfully offer more than 2 stars. She should change her behaviour or else, there won’t be any customers. Customer service is the primary pillar of every business.
