“Valentine's Day surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2014

Took my wife and daughter for Valentine's surprise dinner. As we approached the restaurant they were visibly disappointed. They expected the usual fancy restaurant. We ordered the set menu which was copious and we had plenty of leftovers as take home. Go straight to the Iranian menu, skipped the Indian part. Their disappointment turned to smiles after tasting the delicious cooking. Some points to consider - decor in and out is garish. Just forget the decor and concentrate on food taste. Parking is disorganized, cars blocking each other and heating too hot, if you can overlook those, you'll have a great time. Arrive hungry, you'll go home happy,

“An excellent Iranian food at a lovely place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

We went there for lunch and we had a big deal of Iranian foods including Juje kebab, kebab barg and kubideh. For dessert, we were served by mirzaghasemi, halim badenjan and olivieh. Actually, the price-adjusted quality of these foods was really high and it is fare to say this restaurant (at least in terms of Iranian foods) is among the best 3 restaurants in Europe.

“The Iranian menu is great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013

At first I thought this was just going to be another Indian restaurant but at the end of the menu there are some Iranian gems - I strongly recommend skipping the Indian part of the menu and going straight for the Iranian section.

I had chicken in a pomegranate and walnut stew and my friend had walnuts in tomato with some lamb. Both of these were excellent, the service was great too - would definitely go again!

“Awesome ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2013

Went to dinner there last night ... AWESOME !!!!
There were three of us and we split two special mixed grills,with 3 different kind of persian rice. Everything was delicious. The service was very nice and attention to detail was above - I can't have dairy foods and they made a special eggplant apetizer for me without the dairy sauce. Fantastic, WE'LL BE BACK SOON
