This place is unassuming but tasty and perfectly cooked meat kebabs and mixed grill. The rice is very good. Service can be slow but that is what good cooking is. Have the tea which comes on its own stove. Tastes better with sugar! If you...More

We had a lovely evening at the Caspian. It was recommended by an Iranian friend. Moist, tender lamb and chicken... yummy! So fresh. Definitely going back. My six year old loved it too!

Been twice. For snacks, it was actually really great (meze!). Service was top notch then too. Not sure why this isn't busier.. But then I went back for dinner a few weeks later and it was really disappointing; just heaps of rice and below-par salad....More

I went here for the first time recently and was pleasantly surprised. The food is very good - we tried the koobideh and joojeh kebab, which were great. Portions are on the large side and it is value for money.

Had a nice meal with family. Food is good and a nice change from "the usual". Simple menu with grilled meats, rice and other options. Staff were very friendly. Could offer more drinks, only 1 beer to choose from. Would visit again.
