‘Dough’ yogurt drink
A traditional Persian drink comprising of yogurt, water, mint, black pepper and salt.
The predominant taste of this unfamiliar drink was yogurt and salt. In fact when it comes to quenching your thirst, this drink does the complete opposite. Nevertheless it is a good accompaniment for spicy dishes.
Rice with sweet barberries and smoky fried onions
Plain naan, Maast-mose (yogurt with cucumber and garlic flavour), Mixed kebab (combination of chicken kebab, lamb tikka and lamb koobideh)
Garlic naan, Chicken masti (chicken marinated in yogurt, ginger, garlic, spices), Cheese naan
Butter chicken curry (charcoal chicken cooked with onion, garlic, cashew nuts, cream in gravy and butter sauce),
Mixed veggies curry (mixed vegies with cashew nut cream and gravy sauce),
Beef massala (beef cooked with onion, garlic, yogurt, cream, sultana and tomato sauce)
Each curry was light and well seasoned however we found the butter chicken and the mixed veggies curry to be exceedingly sweet.
I really wanted to like this place but the food simply did not excite me. I couldn’t help but compare the curries we had to the rich Indian curries that I’ve had in the past, and the rice and kebabs we sampled to those that I’ve had at Afghan places. Perhaps Persian/Iranian cuisine isn’t for me. Service was quick and the decor was simple. A nice experience but not a place I see myself returning to.
