On our recent visit the welcome was warm, the food was amazing as always with even more dishes to chose from, atmosphere was relaxed and it was like dining with your best friends (if only they could all cook like this!)

Tasty well-spiced food. Dessert was interesting. Buffet wasn't cheap but well worth it! Ample parking spaces behind too.

Persian influenced fusion Cuisine - first for the county - at the elegant Black and White, timber framed, building that dates back to the 13th Century; contemporary atmosphere, with a present-day décor, pleasing to the eye. Cuisine renowned for its elaborate rice dishes, delicious kababs, nourishing soups and hearty stews. Persians delicately flavour their food with herbs, spices and dried fruits. A variety of nan-like breads supplement rice.
