Has to be described as Persian as the proprietor left Iran before the revolution! Had excellent meal, with very attentive service - however we were the only ones there, so would hope so! Shared the meat mixed Persian dishes between us, and thoroughly enjoyed the food. Pleasantly surprised by the bill at the end also, as Belgium not especially cheap.... More

I had dinner here with my wife on a Saturday night. We are both vegetarians so decided to order the the vegetarian mezze. At 21 euro per person, this may sound a bit pricy, but it was well worth it. We got 12 bowls of mezze, including red pepper & nuts cream, Iranian rice, samosa's, cucumber salat and various other... More

We went to this restaurant with a Bongo gift certificate 'Dining for 2', which means there was a main course for 2 included. I cannot give my opinion on anything of their regular menu as this was a fixed main course but I was really happy with what we received. It was a bit on the safe side to accomodate... More

We went there with a group. We had a 2 course meal of a starter and a main dish. I was totally not impressed by the quality of the food. Housewine was OK, but I didn't see the price, so I don't know if relation price/quality was OK. I will almost certainly not go back to this restaurant nor will... More

We had made a reservation for Valentine's evening. This meant the restaurant was quite full (both downstairs and upstairs). The reception was very friendly and we were seated upstairs within 2 minutes. Despite the warm colours, atmosphere and a cozy looking fire in the fireplace, it was a bit cold. The waiter had to rush up and down the stairs... More

Wonderful persian mezze in a romantic setting near the market square. Definitely one of the best restaurants in this beautiful city. My girlfriend and i have been here several times and have never been disappointed. A must!

We were overwhelmed by the intimate, romantic special surroundings. We had eaten a large meat dish at midday so chose for the Vegetarian Mezzo and we were blown away by the different tastes and aromas, heavenly food, great wine, fantastic Sabayon, warm and friendly service, we left feeling indulged by another culture and will definitely return when in the area...

Very nice food - mix of libanese and other middle east kitchens - the portions of the starters were rather small
