We walked in and were greeted immediately by a waitress very polite and were seated. We got the platter for two and it was really good traditional Persian food, the portions were generous too. The desserts were even better, all in all it was an excellent meal. If you want good Persian food in Amsterdam come here

We stumbled into this place as we were hungry and on our way back to our apartment. We went in because the prices were reasonable and there were plenty of people in. It was very tasty and good value for money. We had a complimentary appetiser of flat bread with feta cheese,olives,walnuts and herbs. We then plumped for the grilled... More

Really nice place with delicious food and very reasonable prices. Grilled meat (kebabs of different sorts) was really good.
