Very good flavourful dishes. If it is your first time, I suggest you try the banquet so that you know what to order next time! The waitress is charming and helpful.

Every visit things just somehow get even better. There are some spicier options added to the buffet and other dishes remain fresh and distinctly Lal's. The puddings have been improved upon and are not to be missed. Always friendly and welcoming. Love this place!

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.
