An excellent romantic dinner with a phenomenal menu! Service very friendly and very kind and warm. The food was just exquisite, very tender lamb stew. and lamb grill.
Certainly a place to come back for a very special occasion.

We ordered the Ghormeh Sabzi $32 and khoresht- Bamieh $32 which was incorrectly served as Khoresh-e-Gh $30. Neither dish was as described or consistent with the photos. Both dishes were bland. The lamb dish was described as being with fresh vegetables which were not present. The chicken dish had a tiny amount of chicken which was overwhelmed by the eggplant. The service was overly pushy bordering on bullying.

As vegetarians, we still found plenty to eat at this pleasant restaurant with friendly service staff. We ordered falafel as a starter and an okra stew as the main dish. Preceded by a complimentary serving of flat bread and salad, this was more than adequate for our small appetites, and it tasted great. Had intended to try the baklava for dessert but couldn't manage it.

Dinner at a Persian restaurant by the Singapore river. This area is more relaxed than other parts of Singapore and it has got a great view of the river from our outside table. I love their great foods, too.

We had diner (starter/maincourse). Starter (appetiser platter) was excellent, the main course ( a kebab dish) was a bit disappointing. It failed to surprise me. Very friendly service.
