I went as part of a group and booked the private "room" which was really great. It comfortably seated 12 people around one large table. The food portions were generous and my meal was great. Plus there was the added bonus of live entertainment - a belly dancer. A great time all round!

It's got to be the best place I have ever eaten at. The lamb Shanks are a must to order as well as the steak!! The atmosphere is wonderful with a candle lit dinner and great exotic music. Great service, Clean resturant and great food plus it's Halal. A wonderful experience I must say!

I'll cut to the chase - DO NOT dine at this restaurant. I had the worst dining experience I have had in at least ten years. We ordered meals at or before 8:30, with most of our group opting for set menu items. After an hour of waiting the manager clearly picked up on the fact we had not been served, and upon 'checking' advised that our meals were just ten minutes away. This was not the case, and our meals were cooked at that point. breads were brought out to keep us quiet but the meals took over 20 more minutes, with one friends meal taking 1h45mins to come out! The anager would not accept that they had done anything wrong and offered us a variety of excuses such as our booking not being as large as planned. Surely this would result in them being overstaffed if anything and having the meals out quicker? Not good enough on a Friday, a busy day for all restaurants.

I have now been to Apadana Restaurant & Bar twice and I can honestly say that the food is excellent, the staff are lovely and the restaurant itself is nicely set out, and has a relaxing feel to it. The only thing that I could possibly complain about is the temperature. Both times I have been, it was a little chilly. Nice mid-week outing. Still dreaming about the pasta I had.
