    So I went back to try the lunch specials last Friday and they were so good we took the whole family there again for Sunday lunch. My okra loving sister had the okra stew and the rest of us had the lamb or chicken skewers. The lamb was lean and tender and the chicken delicately flavoured, so good in fact my hubby ordered a second skewer, It's great to be able to take the family out and enjoy lunch specials on a weekend.

    It's a funny little location but inside you'll find meals with beautiful flavours and fresh ingredients. Even the bread and rice served with the meal were good. Suggest grabbing some friends so you can try all the different dishes. Hopefully we will have room for dessert next time!

    Pleasantly surprised with this neighbourhood gem. Good service even it was a very busy night at the restaurant. Dj was there to set the mood and table was beautifully set up. We ordered mixed grilled for 2 and another chicken dish which was tasty, The meat was slightly on the dried side, needed some yoghurt or dipping sauce will elevate the dish to the next level. However, the portion size was generous. Price was very reasonable, a good selection on the menu to suit anyone who want an authentic Iran food experience.

    The lady wait staff was personally invested in welcoming us and making sure we had a great time. and was thrilled to have non-Persian people there, as this is clearly a hub for that community. It was a lovely, homely, casual place with great Persian music. The food was incredibly good- tasty, very fresh and well presented. You will not be disappointed!

    Had the chance to experience the new menu. I recommend the $10 Saffrom Rice. It can feed 4 people.

    The food was yummy and plentiful. We went at lunch time and it ended up getting busy after we arrived. Think maybe this was why there was a small wait for the food but it was worth it.

    Tasty middle eastern food. Enjoyed our chicken wings to start and my lamb grill of both mince and backstrap cuts, flavoursome and well presented. Disappointed that their "fluffy" bread and baklava were unavailable!

    Extremely happy with all the take away I got. Mixed Grill, Vegetables, Chicken Stew & Barberry Rice. I forgot how big the dish sizes were, quite a meal for myself my Dad and his partner, and there is still more left over.

    Went there for the $10 lunch special. Great food, and quite a lot of it as well as a can of drink for that price is an absolute bargain.

    Thank you so much to Zara and the Chef's for the wonderful 1st time experience with Persian & Mediterranean cuisine I had today. I was very happy with the quality of the food, and the size of the dishes were enormous, I somehow managed to eat everything and have your Persian Ice Cream at the end. Chicken Wings, Mixed Grill, Vegetables, Saffron Rice, Lebanese Bread. I will definitely come back tomorrow and try one of the lunch specials, they will be awesome and I want to experience more of your fine cuisine. I will also give you a tip of $2, you forgot to add the Bread to my bill.
