I like middle eastern (Ordered Iranian dish) food however, this restaurant didn't impress me much. Staff were nice and polite (they are Persians) however, food is overpriced in my opinion and ingredients not best quality either.

Thank Ertan K

On the next block down from Hotel EastWest, this place looked so inviting we just had to go in, and how glad we are that we did! A spacious room with a definite Persian feel to it, the extensive menu features both Indian and Persian cuisine. It was hard to choose, but we settled on an Indian lamb biryani, a... More

Just 10 mins walk away from the station, this little restaurant has an indian iranian feel. The chicken biryani and chicken chilli was excellent, a bit spicy but just perfect when its cold outside. The staff was very nice.

Just tasted the worst Biryani in my life. Basically rice and chicken with a sauce straight out of a packet poured over it. Absolute disgrace.

I recommend you to go to this restaurant, delicious food and warm atmosphere. The butter chicken is unbelievable, also the mix grilled, the buffet is very cheap and very tasty with various options. Nice place to go with a family, it is Hallal food.

I was hesitant going into this Restaurant as it was empty except staff, however I decided to try as it was getting quite late. How fortunate I was.

The lunch buffet is not a bad deal for the price. Pretty tasty esp the briyani and the saffron rice. Ensure you ask them for fresh hot kebabs they are juicy and well worth it.
