We got 5 dips/spreads (from left to right): spinach, eggplant, Persian yogurt, walnut, hummus.

In general, compared to greek ones, I feel like these were healthier, not as salty / strongly flavoured. Could be interpreted as plain, but as someone with a lighter palate, I liked it! I particularly enjoyed the spinach (borani esfanaj), which was very flavourful, probably due to the sweet onions within, as well as the Persian yogurt (mast), which was served cold and was rather thick with a pleasant sour flavour. The walnut (muhamara) was p good and rather interesting - nutty and sweet from the bell peppers mixed in. Kinda like upgraded nut butter. Hummus was alright, it’s tasty but I’ve had better, and the others outshone it. Eggplant (kash-e bademjan) was like babaganoush but more fibrous, would have preferred it to be more smoky but it was still rather tasty.

All the charcoal grilled items come with a bowl of rice! The basmati rice was very light and all the grains were separated, decently fluffy. It could have been more aromatic though.

We managed to feed 6 with this. Minced lamb was a bit gamey but was still alright with it bc it’s pretty juicy. Both the chicken and fish were tender and succulent, prawn was well marinated and firm, tho it did kinda taste like shrimp, not prawn? Beef was done medium rare, juicy and not tough. Came with some greens, which were decent. I liked that the meats were all properly done, none of them fell short!

Kebabs have its origin in Middle Eastern cuisine as a street food. The two meats (lamb and chicken kubideh) were served with a mix of saffron and white basmati rice that were both aromatic and fluffy. The lamb meat didn't had a gamey taste and both meats were tender and well marinated with a nice balance of flavour and aroma from the spices. Wished we could just order a meat skewer by itself. Overall definitely a place to visit though staff service could be improved.

Made with walnuts and a mix of Persian spices, the hummus had a nutty flavour and creamy texture to it; and an added sweetness and tangy-ness from the pomegranate. Best eaten with their crusty and chewy Persian bread for a healthy earthly goodness.

These small rice wraps reminded me of mini "bazhang" as the stuffed rice had a similar sticky texture. Lightly flavoured with herbs, the stuffed rice was wrapped with grape vine layers that gave it a slight bitterness.
