A quiet evening in Dorrington. This is not likely to be unusual.
Extensive menus, but for us when it came down to it, it was "this is what we do - tasting menu - so this is what you are having".
All very politely served, but the place is in need of a clean. Dust and dirt particles were on the tablecloth, crockery and glassware. Tapped away by the waiter with his cloth, but not entirely.
Buffet type meals need footfall and throughput to keep the food fresh and appetising. The buffet was closed.
Some lovely flavours but the eight people in the restaurant on just three occupied tables are not going to make much for the owners or staff.
Persian (carefully clarified not Iranian) food was from the memories of the medical doctor owner and his mother's kitchen.
A good effort, but there is evidence of a lack of care to the buildings, adjoining car park and from the some of the old detritus hanging around there. Hens roam pleasantly on the uncut grass/gravel.
There is evidence of living in the past which is fine, but today's standards probably demand slightly better facilities and cleanliness.
All that said, the chicken kebab sauce flavour, being part of the first set of dishes offered were the tastiest ever.
This place is worth a try. If it was busy, everything may have appeared even better.
