The food here is great! They have a very large selection of Persian food to choose from. I've been 3 times now and haven't been disappointed. The food is packed with flavour and the portions are huge, so you will go home satisfied!

This is a super delicious, very reasonably priced, Persian/Middle Eastern restaurant. We serve generous portions. We also serve alcoholic beverages and we have a five star rating award for restaurant hygiene. Great value for your money. Open for lunch and dinner late until 11:00 PM. Take away service is available. Family atmosphere. Great prices.
