    Awesome free sample chai all the time. Get the feast to fill your belly for the day. Fill up on awesome real wood and tree furniture. Gods above, I can't get enough of this place.

    I had Persia's favourite - it was great! Not exactly Iranian/Persian food but I can appreciate the effort for fusion

    Not sure how this is a Middle Eastern restaurant. It serves North/South Indian cuisine. Hands down, it serves the best chai! I tried the 'Darjeeling' one, do give it a shot if you're there.

    The feast is a great option. Don't be fooled by the name, the portion isn't overwhelming

    Service was good, however more than half of the lamb wrap was just rice and disappointing. Never again

    Great food across the board. The place has an amateurish feel, in a good way - as if staff is all volunteers there because they love it.

    Great food. If you're undecided just order 2 doubles and share everything with your friends.

    A mixture of foods from all over Asia. Or at least foods which non-Asians think it's Asian. "Persia's Favorite" is by no means a Persian dish at all!
