Excellent Iranian food at very reasonable prices. Wonderfully tender and tasty kebabs and rich stews - strongly spiced but not hot,full of exotic combinations such as walnut and pomegranate. Only downsides were service was friendly but a little slow and wine list very limited.

Iranian food was a discovery for me and it was wonderful. Exotic and very tasteful. Our waiter was very nice and we spent a lovely evening.

My favourite Persian restaurant in London. The food here is the most authentic Persian food you can find in London, compliments to the chef. Please maintain the high standard and don't change anything :-)
