This family run business delivers an exotic menu of divine flavours. The service is warm and friendly and the food quality is consistently excellent. The restaurant capacity is limited so no ok really to avoid disappointment.

We went to this small Persian restaurant 15 years ago when we last stayed at Jindabyne. We were so happy it is still going, the food is unique and Darya prepares the food with love and attention. Its worth visiting the town for.

Yet another excuse to visit this hidden gem. The venison meat balls were just delicious! Service is always friendly and the odour when you first walk in starts the juices turning. Bookings are a must...as is cash...also a byo. Do yourself a favour!!
