This is a small restaurant with a limited menu .... but what amazing food! All of it was beautifully cooked and presented like an exotic picture. The staff were great and the place was clean and very COVID aware and prepared.

Had a great lunch, all the safety procedures are in place to make you feel comfortable. The cocktails with a Persian twist are delicious, the menu is small but interesting and appealing. The plating is light and modern (very instagrammable) and the service was warm and professional.

The restaurant is nice and stylish inside but the food is incredibly disappointing and bland, especially if you know what real Persian food tastes like. The lentils in both dishes were undercooked and hard, the meat was soft and juicy but a bit bland and rice was absolutely terrible. The only good thing was bread.

Very welcoming staff who know the menu well and describe dishes accurately without being pushy or gushing. Absolutely delicious food served beautifully. Attentive staff, but not at all intrusive. We ended up the last diners upstairs and the staff seemed very relaxed about it. A great evening. I would definitely recommend Nuthshell

Interesting and for the most part delicious food but the portions made me think of those at the feeding of the five thousand with five loaves and two small fishes

Very good food, wine, and service. However, our charming waitress should not have asked for an additional tip given that a service charge of 12.5% was already added to the final bill.

The food was great but the main course portions were too small, especially the seafood and the duck dishes.
