Time Out Says

Housed in a converted villa with its own valet parking and massive outdoor bread oven, this Persian restaurant is a good spot for a casual dinner or lunch. Inside, the decor is a little on the kitsch side, with the ceiling painted to look the sky, complete with fluffy clouds. Persian bread is first served in a basket on the table alongside basil, feta and cold walnuts for wrapping up. The temptation to fill up is powerful, but you must fight it if you are to sustain the rest of the meal. The hummus is creamy and lemony while the eggplant mouttabel has a soft smoky taste. There are not a whole lot of salad options, which is why you should move straight onto the kebabs. The lamb chops are cooked perfectly and the minced meat kebabs are flavoursome and tender. Each meat dish is served with fries and steamed veggies, including tasty chargrilled tomatoes, but if you’d like a heavier accompaniment, the saffron rice is buttery and quite delicious.
