We were a table of 5 on a Saturday evening. Impressed from the start by the warm welcome from staff, who were excellent throughout. A varied menu that resulted in all of us having something that we really wanted. Each starter and main course exceeded expectation and we were all very impressed. Table service was second to none and waiting staff couldn't have done more to make it a very pleasant experience. Our table was booked for 19:45 because a large party were due in at c.18:45. However, they turned up an hour late late, didn't pre-order (as was suggested to them) and were very rowdy and rude to staff. My sympathies were with the chef and those who explained how they had tried so hard to please them, but their efforts were wasted. In our view the party of c.14 were oblivious that they were spoiling everyone else's evening. They were out to complain about anything and everything and most refused to pay but were content to eat their meals. The staff tolerance was exceptional, though they were pushed hard. In my view the party will try the same scam at another restaurant somewhere in the city. Notwithstanding their ignorance and appalling manners, we had a great evening and will definitely be eating there again. Well worth a try - you will not be disappointed.

The Persian evening was aa event to remember, though from popping in for a portion of nachos (like no others) and a glass wine to a special evening the food is always imaginative and great, and the reception you get from the time you enter is always like visiting you best friends.

Came here for a midweek dinner with friends. The restaurant is very clean and bright and the staff were very welcoming.

We didn't really understand the theme of the restaurant with a menu comprising tagines, fish, tapas and skewers. We asked the waitress who said that the chef was Iranian and he cooked food that he liked!

We ordered a lamb tagine, meat skewer and teriyaki salmon. Of these, the tagine was easily the nicest with a really authentic Moroccan taste. The skewer was a bit dry and the salmon was more like a ramen than a teriyaki and the taste was a bit diluted.

Overall, the food was good but had room for improvement. It probably would have got four stars but for the fact that it took over an hour for our main courses to come out... with the restaurant fairly empty.

Great meal with friends on Friday night. The Persian mixed skewer was fantastic and the rosewater-infused rice and tzatziki accompanied it perfectly. Would love to come back and try the tagines which my friends thoroughly enjoyed.
