Wow. The food was fantastic, the hosts so nice and great service. Everyone should experience Cafe Darya at least once. Highly reccomend the Goat. It's a small restaurant, open shorter hours and bookings are essential.

Very friendly - small restaurant - run by very busy husband and wife team. BYO - family friendly - cosy and quaint. Food fresh, nicely cooked and plentiful. Home made quality Turkish Delight to finish the meal.

Wow! Fabulous authentic Persian food, and generous portions for courses. The flavours are so well balanced, but rich. It needs a robust wine or beer. The goat was magnificent, the venison meatballs excellent. The whole menu is so appealing you could keep coming back just...More

Went here last week after a few drinks at the pub. Mains (goat and lamb) were tasty, Persian food is so good! The entrees (egg and the salad/dip) weren't to my taste. Service was polite, friendly, and professional but slow unfortunately. Serving sizes were also...More
