I ate here at lunchtime while visiting a business conference at Olympia, across the road. I really wish I hadn't, as the food was served cold, and wasn't good quality. I explained this to the waiter who ignored me, and I then mentioned it to the owner when paying. She was rude, and tried to charge an additional service charge,... More

We visited this place after we did a show in the Olympia. The staff were quick and attentive. The food quality and amount was grand. It was a great experience over all.

This restaurant is run by Taher Taha who is an Iranian national with a flair for making customers feel warm, special and invited. The menu consists of fresh lamb chops, fresh fish, herbs, chicken and salads. There is no alcohol sold here but you may bring your own. The bread is baked fresh in a traditional hot clay oven and...

Mint tea was horrible, toilets disgusting and the shisha just tasted burnt whilst the charcoal was old or off

We went in late for dinner and ordered some Koobideh and Joojeh kababs. We also ordered wings which were sensational. The Hommus and bread complimented the food so in the end all of us finished our dinner very satisfied with the meal.

Just finished at an event across the road and saw this restaurant. Had Salad Oliveh and bread followed by Zoresh Pollo with a soft drink for less than £17. Food was perfectly cooked, chicken fell off the bone and sauce was amazing. So much food... best value for money around easily. Guys here were so friendly and great to see... More

We were looking for a place to have a late lunch having come out from Olympia. Two persian restaurants across the road caught our eye and after checking the menus, we picked Alborz. This is a small restaurant. Nothing fanciful. We sat at a table and were given a menu from which we ordered. Having been to Persian restaurants before... More

Walked in and got a table. Extremely long wait to get anything: order, food, pay the bill. One waiter, 30 guests, serving, taking orders, baking bread, taking payments, preparing take away. Not again

When the bill came (after having been ignored the whole time we had been there), there was a charge of £4 for the two tap waters we had ordered. When we queried this the waiter said he would get it taken off, we paid in cash. We were then refused our change to cover the cost of the tap water.... More

We cam to this restaurant whilst at a trade fair, was seated whilst our server was on the phone, waited around 15 minutes before he even engaged in a conversation with us. Ordered food & drinks eventually, although please note this restaurant doesn't serve alcohol. Food arrived was very bland, we wish we had tried the pub up the road... More
