Persian Flavours is a tiny takeaway type shop. Nelly organised a dinner there and Kevin, Minh and myself attended.
The food on the menu looked like a cross between Indian and Lebanese type dishes. The waitress/owner turned out to be Chinese when she heard us speaking Cantonese. She told us about how she had opened the restaurant with her husband who is Iranian.
We ordered a variety of dishes, none of which I really remember the proper names of. We started with some fried puffs that contained spinach and cheese, very nice.
There was Butter Chicken, Chicken and Lamb Kebabs, a Lamb Curry with some vegetable that I now forget. The butter chicken was everyone's favourite. The kebabs were nice and smokey. I loved the Garlic Naan as well.
Desserts were some really strong ice cream flavoured with rose water. A bit too pungent for my liking.
Overall, a nice little place providing some different foods. I'm definitely going back and trying out some other dishes.
Overall Rating: 13/20, Good food and great prices.
