Went there ten days ago.

The actual menu offered many fewer options than the one they advertise, but the food was very tasty.
The waiter was very polite and I got served in a matter of minutes, really.

Unfortunately I had very bad experience with this restaurant twice. First time I was waiting at the table 15 minutes only to be told that the chef is not in. Second time I had a voucher for 2 steaks and I've booked the table via Groupon. Upon arrival I've been told that they are not having steaks. When I've opened the menu on the website to prove that they do have steaks, they've changed the excuse saying that they have it but I would have to pay extra, even though my voucher was very specific about what is included. Completely unprofessional staff.

We visited the restaurant with a Red Letter Days voucher for a three course Persian meal. The restaurant was nice, but lacked atmosphere as it was pretty much empty during our meal, only one other customer and one waiter. The chef kept leaving the kitchen to find our waiter during our meal which we found a bit strange, adding to the odd atmosphere. Despite this, the food was excellent. We had one issue that we couldn't order the main dishes we wanted as there was a problem in the kitchen, but the waiter dealt with it excellently. He allowed us to choose a more expensive dish for no extra cost, and we also both got an extra glass of wine each for free. Overall a good experience, we just found the atmosphere a bit strange it being so empty.


Went there for bday dinner. Looks amazing and sophisticated. Like you’re going to an expensive place, considering the location also.

And then you get served on these tin type of plates that just bring the whole aesthetic down and cheapens it.

But food was really good. Really should change those plates!

Interesting set up with indoor and outdoor seating. Changing food menu offering snack and full menu items as well as alcohol. Somewhat lacking atmosphere
