I had a hankering for some Middle Eastern food. The thought Coriander, lemon and other lovely spices filled my head however I've got to say and I do feel bad for saying it but Shahrzad ws probably the worst food I've ever paid for in a restaurant. It wasn't bad food but it was the blandest most uninspiring thing I'd... More

Wonderful food, once we'd found it! On a busy road full of restaurants, this has a small frontage with minimal signage. Worth seeking out, though. Interesting menu, well cooked and excellent value for money.

Good food freshly prepared. My husband had the Lamb Fillet and Kebab with Saffron Rice, grilled tomato and chilli (the large chillies that have a bit of heat without being challenging). Side of diced tomato, cucumber and onion salad with pickles (mild chillies again) I had the Chicken with crushed walnut and pomegranate paste which was delicious. It's a bring... More

We went to 2 other Persian restaurants in the area only to find them closed down and were just driving into town when we spotted this place. Other than a table of young Asian lads there was no one else in and we almost didn't bother, but we really wanted Persian food and this place looked like it could do... More

Got curious about Persian food after cycling past this place every day. I wouldn't have known it existed otherwise. Had never heard of this place via advertising or word of mouth. But, gave it a go and had a wonderful meal in there. Tasty, interesting food and a very reasonable price. Could probably get a starter and main course for... More

We came to this restaurant out of curiosity about Persian food and certainly were not disappointed. It turns out Persian food is extremely tasty - this place needs to promote itself more! Most of us had the Kashke Bademjan starter and then a variety of mains which were all deliciously rich and fragrant, especially served with the saffron rice. The... More

Yes everyone who knows London Road knows the Turkish and Chinese food to be had is tasty and reliable. But this place offers something a bit different and is worth a try. Not sure it has really taken off yet despite an initial good review in the Sheffield Star. On the night we went in business was mainly by the... More
