Anahita Meat & Wine – Persian cuisine with flair

Persian cusine excites me like few other cuisines. The best of the Mediterranean, the Middle East and Central Asia combined into a colourful array of salads, dips, grilled meats and stews.
Persian savoury dishes often contain fresh and dried fruit such as sultanas, figs, dried limes, lemon and pomegranate.
If you haven’t tried this exquisite food I recommend a visit to Anahita Meat and Wine in Lane Cove Sydney for a Sunday family brunch. At $25 a head it’s a steal.

    What a delight to see a buffet of foods that actually excites the palate! I've only ever known very tired looking displays of roasted meats and dull salads. That all looks so wonderful:) The yoghurt alone looks as luscious as any ice cream!

    Yum! That salad with the limes in the first picture looks particularly nice! (are you ever tempted to ask for recipes at places like this?)Rachel 🙂

    Hi Coby, Anahita will not disappoint. IndiraHi Veronica, yes my husband Mark is a wonderful cameraman and photographer so why not use him when I can! IndiraHi Rachel, yes I am tempted to ask for recipes when they're not too busy and have time for a chat. Maybe during my next visit…. Indira
