Very friendly service. Wonderful food. Relaxed atmosphere. Music nice but not too loud. A good place to catch up with friends or family and have a great experience.

My wife Kerry and I had been to Safa City Cafe before and we wanted to share the experience with our friends. Our friends were in awe as we walked through the cafe out to the garden area. Our friends were blown away when we stepped outside. It was like going back in time when restaurants, were run like a family affair. We had a vegetarian and one of our friends is GF. Safa city catered for everyones food requirements. When the food arrived, my friends and my wife and I were blown away with the taste of Persia. The food, the service, the ambience and our experience of Persian culture was wonderful and couldn't be faulted. We will return for another great experience.

The restaurant was a real treat and the décor was just lovely out in the garden seating area. Our food was superb! I thoroughly enjoyed the eggplant dip - divine and loved the fact that they serve with gluten-free bread. My lamb stew with kidney beans was so tender and so tasty, it was amazing! The only thing I would say was it was disappointing no hot chips were to be made available for my girlfriend's son, and nor was the original dish that both my girlfriend and I would have liked to order - apparently we were too early. Other than that, the wait staff were very knowledgeable about all the food and their service was fabulous! I would definitely return.

Very, very good food, mouth-wateringly good Persian food -- such amazing kebabs. Service was fast but a little confused. Staff were friendly, helpful and occasionally forgetful, but overall were terrific. Music was interesting (Fri and Sat. night only) for the time it was on -- band were keen on the shisha! No one at our table shisha'd, a bit put off by the shisha-ing men who leered at all the girls. The garden restaurant at the back is the only place to eat...quite rustic! Good coffee.

Unusual setting, lovely floral aromas maybe from the garden, food was simple and tasty. Service was a little slow - we said we wanted to order dessert but noone came to collect our order apart from a waitress scooting over and placing a small dish on our table of what looked like a dessert which we hadnt ordered and scooting off before we could ask what it was! By that stage we decided we were full anyway ready to go home. Price was very decent and overall a pleasant experience. Lovely Persian music in the background.

staff were very welcoming and friendly, loved the music , quick service and loved the kebab. Definitely recommend it. Only the entrance to the garden was a bit let down but when you get there it's a beautiful place to spend your evening.

Great Persian restaurant. The food and the atmosphere were great. One thing though: the quantities were substantial. You could definitely considering sharing an entree and then a main between two people.

Excellent food!! Everything was really delicious, and there's a decent number of vegetarian options. There was a little bit of a wait for the main meal.
