What a gem!
Visited after a day at the Botanical Gardens. It's only a short walk away, less than a 10 minute stroll.
We booked a table in advance but arrived early. We were greeted and seated quickly, with an option of sitting inside or outside. We chose to sit inside. The outside area looked good though and the team have done a great job sectioning it off from the busy road.
Inside the restaurant is well decorated, with textured walls, lovely artwork and the coloured glass on the walls is sleekly lit and gives the restaurant an authentic feel.
We were well looked after. All the team were friendly, helpful and attentive. After side eyeing other diners plates when we arrived, we knew we weren't going to be disappointed.
The food is delicious, presented beautifully and so tasty. Portions were generous and we were kindly provided with a takeout box! That meant I had one happy husband almost skipping out with his 'round 2'!
Thank you for a great dinner!
Nice and cosy little restaurant/bar.
Food was very delicious, succulent and tasty meat platter, could do with more roast peppers on the platter because it was only two little slices of roast pepper. Nan bread was fresh and tasty too.
It is a notch on the pricey side if I compare with other similar places but would definitely go there again because the staff and the atmosphere is exceptional and the food is really fresh and delicious.
Best part of my experience was the hot small plate - naan and some mashed eggplant - super tasty.
I wished the waiter informed me a hot plate was good enough for one person because I ended up with so much food on my table and could only do a bit of everything.
Overall, great experience.
Second time in this Persian restaurant. The homemade soup 🍲 & salad 🥗 were my favourite Iranian cuisine. 5 star ⭐️ hygiene level. Won’t hesitate to go back.
- Deco represent Persian culture very well
- customer service is good
- I only visited this place once and was disappointed. Ordered Gormeh Sabzi (lamb with mix vegetables, beans and nuts) which was taste less, sides were okay but not great.
- May be their grill food is better but I don’t recommend what I tried, it’s waste of money
