I'd read great reviews about this place so happily visited one afternoon.
Pros: The bread was warm, freshly made and tasty. The staff were friendly.
Cons: The food was unfortunately disappointing. It was overly salted yet lacked other seasonings which usually burst though with Persian food. The overall experience and meal was subpar.
I've also had better hummus elsewhere.
Perhaps it was an off day in the kitchen? My taste buds expected a party but sadly, I left disappointed.
One of the older Persian restaurants in London ( I've visited most of them over the last 25 years !).
I give this restaurant based on my visit yesterday five stars because of the overall experience. The decor is typically Persian / Iranian, the staff are very polite and hard working, the food is very good ( but please add 1/2 more veggie options).
This restaurant is simple and good at what they do, no modern twists or over engineered dishes - just good old simple Persian cuisine that is very tasty.
However, with most restaurant companies these days, the service charge is added to the bill, I don't agree with this and think good service should be unconditional, not something you pay for, and also, who knows where this money actually goes.
Very average food. Greeted as one solo diner and met with a look of hesitation. The place did not have a table for one person as most were 3-4 diners. A better layout is perhaps advised. Secondly, I ordered the mixed kebab and the taste of the chicken was really plain whereas the minced meat kebab was better.
Won't rush to come again but this place can be improved with small things and I hope that it can be more friendlier to the single diner who may come after the gym.
The food is acceptable. We ordered a mix grilled. I think the grilled lamb meat was tastier than Chicken. Regarding the price was a little bit over what we expected. I highly recommend the bread which is baked in front of us.
• Charming bejewelled quaint place with a traditional persian setting.
• Easy relaxed atmosphere. Were instantly made to feel very welcomed. Treated as guests rather than customers.
• Food was brilliant, and served swiftly. Lemonade drink was a complete hit.
• One waitress in particular had exemplar character and outstanding ability to make you feel at ease. Great asset to this eating establishment.
