Very special restaurant and really tasty food using Persian culinary skills. Well worth a visit and widely appreciated by those in the know about the restaurant. Highly recommended. The owner demonstrates high standards from his team and he engaged with us throughout our dining experience. The food is prepared with great care and attention to detail. The fish tasted just wonderful and I can recall the saffron dusting the fish ever so lightly. The baklava was just wonderful with the rose flavour following the initial bite. Wow! Our taxi driver was also raving about the food on our journey home!

The food was wonderful and staff are really friendly. They even suggested a different side to better accompany my main course and wasn’t disappointed. You’ll struggle to find lamb as nice as this anywhere else

Delicious food and excellent service. The bread and hummus were better than any we had in the Middle East. Had one grill and one stew and both were extremely tasty. Also had Baklava and saffron ice cream and these were fabulous.
