soltani and aubergine borani really good amazing portions big and cheap, staff friendly and left really full. The place is mainly a takeaway with a couple of tables but that didn't bother us. Meal cost under £45 for 5 people definitely recommend

A wee place where to have a nice persian meal for a fiver. Spiced chargrilled meat and freshly baked persian bread with sauces and a tea for a lovely end. Definitely an easy and quick oriental food meal. Positive experience.
