Kebab Koobideh is the best type of kebab that I've ever eaten in any Middle Eastern cuisine. It's simply delicious. Whoever came up with the recipe is a culinary genius.

My family and I decided to get 2 sharing plates for 5 people in total but the portions felt like it was only for 2 people in total. The food tasted great so I would recommend the single as it would actually be worth the cost in my opinion but for the sharing one... I'd probably never buy it again. In addition for those of you who like wine, it is necessary to bring your own bottle. But they do have their own soft drinks there.

Absolutely love this restaurant. Their bread is to die for. Must try! Portions are very large and super tasty.
Staff is always friendly and the service is always fairly quick even though it can get very busy.
We moved away from the area earlier this year, but were still regularly take a one hour drive, just to eat here.

We enjoyed the food, it was without a doubt 1 of the best, specially the Alounak special dish. Our only problem was the language barrier. We seriously struggled to get our orders on time with nothing missing. I changed my mind from the yogurt drink to mint lemonade, I got yogurt drink at the end. I didn't mind, but then we got the starter meal after our main meals (looked like she didn't write it) as we had to remind them.
I would suggest someone who should take the orders to have a decent level of a language skills to avoid this kind of avoidable mistakes.

My girlfriend and I have been waiting to come to this place for months. We had always seen a line outside the door and heard very good reviews.
Our experience was utterly dreadful. In short, our waitress was totally incompetent and couldn’t really speak or understand English. This resulted in our food being forgotten and not being written down.
The cherry on top was that we had to ask for our bill a second time after 30 minutes. She had forgotten about that too. The irony was that the bill was the hand written note of our order. There we could see all the mistakes she had made, from not adding meals, to adding meals that she never brought.
Honestly, the food after it finally came was just spoilt from the bad service we had received. I don’t recommend going to this restaurant while their staff can’t understand you pointing to the menu and asking for the meal.
