We were a party of 5. The food was all delicious. The aubergine starter was particularly tasty. We also had desserts and the baklava was lovely - not too sweet which it often can be. The service was very good and the staff friendly and helpful.

Really tasty food and an exciting menu. Three of us dined off the normal evening menu and had three courses and soft drinks for £20 a head.

Amazing food as always.. Brag will always be my favorite lamb! Mux apptizer is lovely but not a big fan of dolmeh (stuffed vine leaves). Frash flat bread is amazing, and rice with betries to die for

Excellent service, obliging, tasty food with lots of veggie options; well sourced wine and very reasonable prices for a city centre restaurant. Cosy and not too noisy setting for small and large groups.

Food perfectly cooked as always. I have visited many similar style restaurants and this comes out on top every time. We will be going back next time we fancy some Persian flavours.
