My husband and I had dinner here last night and it did not disappoint. I've been here for lunch with a friend and we loved it and finally got to take my husband too! This time around we tried the lamb shank served with traditional basmati rice with fava beans. It was fall off the bone tender and really good.... More

We visited this restaurant as we have driven past it several times & I love Middle Eastern food. We ordered 2 dishes one that came with Rice + Chicken skewer and another that came with Rice + Ground Beef on skewers, we like our food spicy & asked for them to make it extra spicy & were advised that we...

I have eaten here many times, and have never been disappointed. One way to go is to have nothing but starters. Their masterpiece is the eggplant dip, something that you can't get anywhere else in town. The starters come with flat bread. In addition to the eggplant dip they serve more familiar dishes such as humus, dolma (stuffed grape leaves),... More

10 of us went to this restaurant and were greeted by Elaina. She single handedly was the hostees and the waitress. The food was very good. The service was excellent. Definitely recommend.

Food was better than other persian restaurants but the service was below par. Especially from the persian hostess who really needs to take a chill pill.

I recently ate at this restaurant with my wife and it was my 1st experience eating Persian cuisine. From the get go the staff were extremely friendly, gave us recommendations on what to order, and explained the dishes in detail as they arrived. We even were educated on the origins of a wonderful spice I'm now in love with called... More

This place has excellent food and service. I would highly recommend this place to my friends who want to experience Persian cuisine for the first time or just in general. Best Persian restaurant in town.

I heard so much good stuff about this restaurant that I wanted to try it for awhile. I was pleasantly surprise. The food is very good especially the eggplants appetizer (kashk-e-bademjan) and all the kabobs. The service is excellent. The location is convenient, but parking might be an issue. The place is more casual than I thought...

I had never eaten at a Persian restaurant until today. The food was great. The service was beyond this world. Make sure you try the eggplant appetizer. The beef kabobs were really good. There was something for everyone to eat. Don't let the appearance fool you the food and service is definitely worth it

I ordered the koobideh (beef kabob). It comes with rice, roasted tomatoes and onions. Overall the food was very good. Better than other restaurants in Calgary. The price is a bit steep for the portion size, but then again the food was good. If you can get over the price of 17.00 then give it a try. If not, there... More
