Fantastic restaurant my son calls it, "the fancy restaurant" perhaps due to the eclectic decor. The food is good and they specialise in doing something special if it's a birthday. One of the waiters even do a special Iranian dance. The place is well worth a try. Enjoy

Great place for a tasty Sunday lunch. The decor of the restaurant is absolutely fabulous and otherworldly. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly, and the menu is simple and delicious. Although at first sight the long list of kebabs is somewhat intimidating, it soon becomes clear they are simply variations on chicken and lamb.
There is also an impressive list of warm and cold starters.
We were a party of 3 and decided to take the pain out of choosing and ordered the selection of starters and the mixed kebab.
OMG!! This resulted in us being treated to an impossible amount of delicious foods, far more than we could possibly eat. Luckily the waiter brought us some boxes to take the surplus with us, and this will provide me with some very tasty lunches for the next 3 days....
I can warmly recommend this place. It is quircky in its looks, has very tasty food, and is fantastic value for money.
Note for those of you who expect wine or beer with their food: This place doesn't serve alcohol.

Excellent food as always. Just expect to have a long wait on peak times. Queued for over 1 hour on a saturday night but it was worth it. This place getting more popular over the years. I've been frequenting it for over 10 years and have seen it come along nicely.

Fantastic value restaurant comparing to other Persian restaurants in London. The quality is similar to downtown Tehran which is confirmed by the sheer amount of locals who visit and collect takeaways there. Always a great place to visit with family I suggest you book as they are always very busy. They have an on premises bakery which is a bonus and a good selection of traditional deserts. Kensal Green tube is 7 mins walk up the road and there are also some limited parking options nearby.

Fantastic restaurant. The food is amazing and the staff are always lovely. Can get pretty busy later in the evening but we went at 6pm on Friday and it was perfect. They are always great with the kids and were happy to carry over our own birthday cake and make a fuss. The bread and mixed platter are always on point
