We went for dinner at the Old Hall Persian Restaurant last weekend. Being a party of 9 ( 2 families) we made sure to book beforehand. The owner was very helpful during the phone booking, he even noticed that we would be having a drive of about 45 minutes to get there.
None of us had ever had Persian cuisine before and so we , like many, opted for the culinary selection buffet where we could choose what we wanted from a selection of dishes. A selection of freshly made dips, olives and flatbreads were presented to us as appetisers . These were all extremely tasty and set the mood for a relaxing evening to come. The main dishes were again very tasty - various rice and couscous dishes, beautifully flavoured lamb and chicken dishes, vegetarian lentil and pulses. All foods had a brief description typed above their large pots so we all knew what kind of flavours to expect. Desserts were also available, and these too, were extremely tasty.
The owner and his family were around to explain any things we were unsure of. They were also very happy to offer any personal recommendations when we asked for their help. The owner/chef was extremely friendly and welcoming. He happily spoke to his customers during the evening. When he got to our table, we found him a most pleasant man. We ended up having our photographs taken by his brother in law who was going back to Iran the following week!He is a quietly spoken man who wants to give culinary pleasure! He certainly succeeded with our group.
