Absolutely terrible experience
1. Table for 3 allocated for a pre-booked group of 5
2. 3 glasses for 5 people
3. 4 sets of cutlery for 4 people
4. Fire alarm went off
5. Main courses came out at 10 minute intervals
6. Music suddenly turned on deafening loud

I have tried countless Iranian restaurants and never really had a bad thing to say about them, until unfortunately we went to this one. The portion sizes are great, but the food doesn't taste as good as other Iranian restaurants in the area. Too much molasses used in most of the dishes really doesn't do the food justice. Overall a very disappointing trip. Service was good though (but we were only one of two tables so difficult to say what it'd be like when they're busy).
