Me and a friend had supper here and it was really delicious - beautiful vine leaf wraps and spinach yoghurt, lovely fresh, tender kebabs with crispy salad garnish and side dishes including a warm, soft naan bread. We had this with a couple of beers. The service was prerfect - friendly, professional and completely unpushy. We both said we would... More

Nice little place with great food and friendly staff! We just dropped in before going to a concert and were very pleased with such great food for a reasonable price. Everything was very fresh and very tasty!

Persian food is glorious - imagine a dessert that combins saffron rice with rose water, almonds pistachioes and cinnamon. Poetic is the only way I can describe the flavours. Served by gentle, friendly people in a quiet little restaurant that deserves to be better known. And it's very inexpensive.

Arrived early 5pm were the only people in the restaurant. Were made very welcome shown to our table left to browse the menu and offered drinks. Ordered and the food was served fairly speedily. Was plentiful and very tasty could have been a little spicier for me maybe a side sauce, but i didn't ask. Will definitely go back really... More

Amazing food. Visited early Tuesday night, was quiet. Service was excellent and food even better. The chicken moist and flavoursome, the lamb dishes tender. The flavours are great and the food isn't over salted.

We popped in here for a quick weekday lunch, as we were nearby and had favourable reviews on TA. We had excellent service (though we were the only ones in for most of our meal) and the food arrived promptly. It was delicious, personally recommending the aubergine dip and the Shirin Polo, which comes with a wonderful orange and pistachio... More

Some of the best rice I have tasted. Absolutely lovely food and the price is really reasonable. Got two starters, two mains and a bottle of wine for £44.

We popped in here in the early evening before going to a show at the Tyne Theatre. We've seen this restaurant before and meant to try it but always ended up going elsewhere because we weren't familiar with Persian food. We needn't have worried, the menus are very detailed and explanatory and the staff are super-friendly and helpful. We plumbed... More

I have used this restaurant frequently over the years, it's a special place for those special occasions, the food is beyond reproach, the staff are excellent, to those who are new to the place, the 'distance shown' to new customers is 'respect' and nothing else, once you are known the chef and his wife as as warm and welcoming as...
