Just returned home from a meal at this restaurant. The service was very poor, I asked for peppers or mushrooms to come with my chicken kebab but got told they don't have any. When my plain kebab arrived with rice and the smallest side salad, the chicken was not cooked. When I complained, the waiter took my plate to the kitchen and returned it and told me that it was cooked. It clearly wasn't cooked and told them I wanted it cooked more. Although they did this by the time my dinner was returned, the rice was cold. We had to wait for over half hour for another drink at the end of our meal so we didn't bother and just left. Our service was so bad we didn't bother complaining further after the chicken incident as we didn't think there was much point. In addition, the same few songs were on repeat and were driving us mad by the end of the night. We will not be returning to this restaurant.

All I can say that I am a meat lover and if you are too this is the place to visit, when I recommended the restaurant to my friends I describe the food as superior Turkish kebabs and French farm stews very moreish, I have been there three times and my over all experience has been great the staff are polite and helpful, there is a good atmosphere I personally like it when the staff and the owners have got time for their customers

Wow my first try of Persian food. My fienf and I stopped here for lunch and went with the grilled chicken, Saffron rice and salad. Filling tasty excellent friendly service. Not sure on the volume of back ground noise.
Looking forward to returning soon.
