Tempting sharers to start

Off the grill
The cuisine served in Shiraz restaurant Hove, is not overly spiced, the emphasis on Iranian cooking is for warm and smoked flavours full of depth, balanced perfectly against fresh salads, grains and pulses.
The unique flavour of saffron, the world’s most expensive spice, infuses the whole menu, with beautiful golden and aromatic saffron rice as standard accompaniment with dishes from the main grill menu such as jujeh bakhtiari, whole marinaded baby chicken, or shashlik, lamb kebab.
Rice is also treated as a ‘one pot’ dish in itself, such as lubia polo, rice cooked with green beans, lamb and tomatoes with warm spices.
