The title says it all. Service was rude by staff and manager and we weren't even asked if we would like any drinks. Food was far from great. had 2 bites and lefts the rest. If you want to flush your money down the drain, then go here.

Popped in after an Olympic event - so much choice on the menu that we choose a few dishes at random. Had a mixed hot started which was lots of different things with meat in them. Very nice however a little more selection from the hot starters on offer would have been better, something not mince based. The bourag meat from the hot started was fantastic

We each had a stew which came with rice. Of the 2 stews we had the potato and the Shabzi, the Shabzi was the tastier. This was spinach based and incredibly tasty. My potato stew was fine, just a little let down by the undercooked potato

4 pieces of Baklawa came, on the house, prior to the bill and this was lovely

Tried a drinking yoghurt and then had bottled water. The soft drinks were all reasonably priced. Watched another table get a kebab and huge salad and other dishes that went by all looked great.

Will go back and try different things of the menu

I understand the comments re the service. The waiter was friendly, just took a little time to warm up

The restaurant was very good value and we left full and looking forward to going back

this restaurant is not too far from the hilton metropole hotel. The food was ok but some of the food did not taste fresh and the customer service was lacking in some parts. But they made up for it in the end by giving us a 20% discount off our bill.

Food is okay, service terrible and they wouldn't offer tap water which is disgraceful.
