A great restaurant with friendly service and the food is simply sublime! The prices are very reasonable for the quality and size of the dishes. Persian food is really something that should be experienced.

The outside of the restaurant is unassuming but don't let that put you off, it's a hidden gem. Deliciously authentic Persian food at very reasonable prices, and you can bring your own alcohol meaning the bill looks even nicer at the end! Came with a large group and the staff were very attentive, explaining the dishes and making recommendations. I... More

The fresh starters set the scene for a great meal to come.The Lamb stew was delicious and my partner had chicken with the most sensational jewelled rice. Home made... More

Blink and you'd walk past this restaurant. Which would be a real pity because it's a hidden gem. A warm welcome awaits, with some of the best staff I've ever found in a restaurant. The menu was carefully and lovingly explained and there was genuine enthusiasm about the food on offer. With guidance, we chose delicious starters, main courses with... More

This was a lucky find on a recent trip to London. It is NOT formal dining but great for families, friends and more casual eating. Four of us ate here mid-week, took our own wine (no corkage charge) and really enjoyed ourselves. It's clearly a family business and the staff were lovely - helpful, warm, generous but not 'standing over... More

This place is really a hidden gem. The family who run the restaurant make you really feel at home and it is very warmly decorated. The food is exceptional - FAR exceeding any of the very expensive Persian restaurants I've been to in Knightsbridge etc. Food is very very fresh and having been several times now, I see that they...

On a business trip and not wanting the usual hotel menus, choices and low value for money, a colleague and myself wandered the length and breadth of the broadway , only to walk past every other, until we came across this gem. Looks very welcoming without going over the top. There was a couple and a family already eating and... More

quality and quantity of food are reasonable with reasonable price however the bread is in low quality and not tasty. very friendly lady as waitress with peaceful environment. the chairs and tables are old enough to distract you.

Not sure how this place makes a profit given the quality and quantity of the food. You can bring your own wine but the quality of the wine available makes it strictly optional. Superb menu choice, huge portions, friendly service.
