Apologies to the rest of the "Excellent!" reviewers. I happen to live in a part of the world where I set a pretty high bar for "excellent" Persian food. The Koobideh Kabab (ground beef) was, eh, ok. A little dry, and not so flavorful. You...More

Excellent Persian meal. Quiet place for a late lunch. Friendly staff. Tucked to the side but very close to the Richmond rail station. Truly enjoyed my meal and will return at my next trip to Richmond.

Persian cuisine is one of my favourites and this lovely place in Richmond does it well. Its small and cosy and the food is comforting and delicious. Portions are great for the prices.

We are getting to be quite expert on Persian cuisine. We have come to it late in our lives, because we have Iranian house guests, and are quite enraptured by it. It is far nicer than other cuisines in the neighbourhood, such as Turkish, Arabic...More

A "perfectly acceptable" Sunday lunch but not a good as some nearby Persian restaurants (such as Sarab in Tolworth). The koobideh was rather bland but the other kebab seemed better. The service was "fine" but that is not meant as a complement! Note that the...More
