If you're in the mood for Persian food and you find yourself in Bham Alabama, then look no further..actually...this is the only place you'll find in the area. The atmosphere is nice, food is good, but a bit overpriced. I guess that's what happens when...More

I like it partially because the wait staff is well schooled in their product--winners and losers on the menu-and its different. There are not the choices of of a big city so competition is lacking. I just find it expensive for what you get.

The unique food selections and preparation were excellent. The service was excellent, and the appetizer served, which was ethnic, was delicious! I am planning to return for dinner this month.

The cornish hen kabob is excellent. Basmati rice is the best rice in the city. The bread with walnuts, cilantro, radishes, and feta cheese to make a "sandwich" is great.

This is a "must visit" restaurant every time I visit Birmingham! And I always get the mixed grill. Fantastic food! Attentive service. And live belly-dancing some nights! What's not to love? I sure wish I could figure out how they make their grilled shrimp. It's...More

It's in a strip mall located in Hoover, AL, but don't let that stop you from trying it. Three of us tried a variety of items and everything was fresh and tasty. Would definitely go back.
