Anais Restaurant, Baulkham Hills

Iran, the modern day Persia, is known for its refined cuisine.
The food is heavily spiced, delicate and uniquely Persian.

I love e
xpanding my culinary horizon.
Experiencing and educating myself with other cultures around the world is always fun!

I was so looking forward to try this newly opened Persian restaurant in The Hills.
We went there one Saturday evening and the place was packed.
We didn't have a booking but the owner was really nice to accommodate us without question.
Service was friendly and attentive, atmosphere was cozy and intimate,
food was rich and full of flavour.
I would definitely be heading back to try their desserts.

Hooka or water pipe
Hooka Lounge available during business hours, bookings needed after 10pm.
 Anais, a name derived from the Persian goddess of love.

Healthy and refreshing. It's a drink that accompanies Persian dishes. A must try.

Yoghurt, cucumber, herbs and seasoning
Served with mixed breads

Bagahli Polo
