Great food - great price. Highly recommend. Not many people there but being a Tuesday night perhaps it was a bit quiet. Hope to get there again soon.
Absolutely fantastic. Staff were great and being a vegetarian I found the food really enjoyable. The carnivores in our great we're also delighted. We will be back
A pleasant meal in a pleasant restaurant and whilst enjoyable, there was nothing particularly outstanding. It is a large restaurant and would be fantastic for large groups. We arrived early so there were just a few other couples but the decor and layout is attractive enough that you don't feel like you are in a barn. Service is very efficient and friendly, we didn't have to wait long for drinks, entree and mains. Not having eaten Persian cuisine before, we were a little hesitant about what to eat and sought assistance from our helpful waiter. We shared a Cucumber & Yoghurt Dip with warm Pita bread, the serve was huge! A bread & butter plate with approx 2 cups of dip on it! The bread serving was also generous, we ate half. The dip was nice but not as tasty as Tzaziki, it needed more salt. We shared 2 mains, one being a Kebab combo (chicken, lamb blackstrap, minced lamb) with a simple salad. I particularly enjoyed chicken and salad, very tasty. We also shared a traditional lamb stew, Ghormeh Sabzi, in a very dark, oily sauce and generous serving of fluffy rice. The lamb was very tender and tasty, but the spices are quite mild, so it didn't have quite enough flavour for me (being a big fan of Indian, Thai, Korean). We were told that Persian food is mild in flavour - my younger son would love it, he hates chilli. The wine/beer list is short but adequate (all wine available by the glass), and they have a very attractive open bar/lounge area. A special mention on the Persian music playing in the background, I really enjoyed it, it was quite boppy (Persian disco?!) without being irritating. This restaurant is ideal for families, large groups, couples - anyone really! But if you like hot, spicy food, you won't find it here. An added bonus, we got to use our Entertainment Book voucher, so the meal & 2 drinks (wine & beer) cost us $49. The servings are very generous, you get good value.
The waiters were very pleasant, but the food was disappointing. I ordered an entree ( or so I thought) of garlic eggplant with bread, which was tasty, but then our mains came at the same time. The waitress just smiled when I pointed this out. My main was a type of lamb stew, which had a thick layer of oil over it and was quite bland. My husband had the mixed kebab, which was also lacking in flavour, although the meat was nice. Both came with a mountain of very plain rice. I really had hoped for more flavoursome food. I ended up eating too quickly as all the food was squeezed on our tiny table and then felt quite bloated all night. I won't be going back.
We had never eaten Persian food before so our waiter was able to direct us with our meal choices. What a delight of flavours!!! The meals were so generous we were stopped in our tracks. We shared a serving of ice-cream. * WOW* an explosion of fragrant flavours. We all shared tea at the end of the meal......perfect. Booking again for this weekend.
food was beautiful, service was excellent, the dining area was great and appropriately themed. The price was appropriate. The Turkish coffee is a great cultural experience. Sad to miss out on the live music which starts after 9.30 (Fri, Sat) Happily go back agian
