Persian
"Iran is a country with a diverse geography and ethnic population. It sits at the centre of the former Kingdom of Persia, one of the world’s oldest continuous major civilisations. Iran forms a bridge between the Middle East and the Far East in the centre of the ancient Silk Road, a major trading route which goes back tens of thousands of years.

Persian cuisine has influenced many world cuisines, and has absorbed elements from other cuisines as well. It's no surprise that Persian ingredients such as saffron, pomegranate and spinach have made their way into other cuisines! As ancient traders took their wares to the corners of the world, they traded goods, bringing back the eating habits and ingredients from Greece, Rome, Turkey, Russia and India. Today's Persian cuisine traces its roots to ancient Persian ingredients and recipes, and is enriched by the great tastes imported from the rest of the world!"

First time eating Persian food and I really enjoyed the experience. My partner and I shared a mixed plate and we were not disappointed. Beautifully cooked and amazing flavours. Would definitely be coming back again.

Delicious food. Authentic food. Wide variety of traditional dishes eg gormeh sabzi and fesenjoon, not just kebabs. Very generous serving sizes. The ash soup and the pomegranate olives were amazing. As was the doogh with cardamon.

Overall it was a good experience.
The quality of food was okay, but there is much room to improve it. I've been to many Persian restaurants in different countries and the (few) ones in Gold Coast have a lot to do if they want to be competitive.
For example, the amount of rice that is served with a meal is not enough and the price is a bit high.

the place is good and the atmosphere awesome. I loved the food. Make sure you try the persian drink: amazing. It's very expensive, but everything is very expensive in Australia. I guess I need to get used to it. The inside of the restaurant is very characteristic.

I guess I expected a bit more due to the positive feedback. If you're after a fairly basic meat based meal, then you'll probably be reasonably satisfied. I was hoping for greater variance of flavours and middle eastern punch.
