We really enjoyed our evening at A Taste of Persia. Really tasty food and the service was spot on. Something a little different, I'd recommend the Bakhtiara!

The service was excellent. The food, fresh beautifully presented and rich in flavour. We had a selection of starters, main and drinks, local beer! The prices are low and you get lots of plates of food. A great experience that we will surely return soon
