Delicious food - good atmosphere with a wonderful mix of multicultural people eating and being jolly, lots of lovely local Persian people eating there so knew the food was going to be good.
Abit of a frosty, may I say pretentious initial welcome from the waitress on first arrival as she nodded without explanation to another waiter to take over welcoming me as she couldn’t find my booking. However this experience was soon forgotten and made up by the very warm welcome from the owner as I went to dine downstairs. Staff on the lower ground were very nice and attentive and the delicious food arrived within minutes of ordering despite it being very busy. Wow was the reaction to its arrival. Delicious. I can’t wait to go back. Recommended if you like tasteful food in a warm sophisticated environment.

As an Iranian I have to say the food was just OK, and of course overpriced for the quality of the food and the mediocre service. If you are not Iranian and it's your first time trying Persian food, you are going to love it, BUT there are also tons of other places in London that will serve you the same food ,or even a tastier meal for one third of the price. I think this restaurant is just overrated!

I called them for a reservation which there was a message on answering machine stating to give name and phone number and they will call back for reservation, which I did and after an hour and half that I left a message I received a call back which I asked for a table for the night after which I was asked for what time I want and I said for 7:30, which I was told there is no available table then which I jokingly said so what time you had time which I was explained angrily that I am asked for what time I need and they would say if there is a table available then or not, then I said 8:30 which I was asked how many are we, which I said three adults and a child which which is two years old, I was told they don't have a high chair and I said then we have to put the push chair beside the table which I was told that it is not possible. I then said thank you we can not come then the other person just put the phone down!
Firstly if they can't serve children who require high chair just mention it in their website.
Secondly don't assign somebody who clearly hasn't got any interpersonal skills and quite frankly who are blatantly rude in charge of dealing with customers.
This experience has put me so off that I will not ever go there and would never ever recommend it to friends.

Ever have something exceed your expectations in every way? The service was on point: brisk, friendly, and professional.
I'm a carnivore. I really like meat. When i say the Grill for two was seriously some of the BEST meat I've eaten in my life, i mean it was exceptionally high quality, cooked perfectly, and served at exactly the right time. The rice was perfect. The octopus was delicious; tender, with great flavor. But that mixed grill.... amazing. Exemplary. Perfect. Go here. Right now. Put your mobile down, get in your car, book a flight, stow away on a ship, do what you gotta do, but go here!!!!
