The service was really poor, the waiter was hesitant to give us the lunch menu (because it was cheaper) and stated the lunch menu was from 1-4pm when in fact the menu itself had 12pm - 4pm. From the get-go this irritated him and the service went downhill. We waited almost 30 mins for drinks and starters, some food was missed off the order and some of the party walked away hungry. I've had a pleasant experience before but just on this occasion the service was horrible and for that reason I won't be going back although everyone who did get their food loved it.
Ridiculously low prices for ridiculously delicious food. And plentiful portions. Come very, very hungry. Low on atmosphere, high on flavor, simple menu options. Highly recommended.
Really delicious food and very friendly service. We're lucky to have such a good local Persian restaurant. Portions are huge, and they're very happy to give take-away cartons. Excellent value and will certainly come again.
