This restaurant must be the best in terms of food quality, it has been in business in London for a long time , they kept their unique yet upscale standard since I have tried them year ago .
Such a lovely experience, real genuine and native taste of Persia .
FOOD GOOD NOTHING ELSE!!
So went here because I was offered 50% off through a separate loyalty scheme if I had to pay full price it would have less stars not because of the food but the service.
▪️food was nice, it was succulent pieces of meat and salad etc was fresh
▪️ prices are reasonable for this area of London
THATS ALL FOLKS
▪️menu was ripped and hard to read
▪️made us sit right next to oven and extractor fan was off so almost died of smoke inhalation
▪️took over 30 mins to get food although only 2 other people in restaurant
▪️staff lacked English so much it was difficult to just tell them what we wanted or ask directions to the toilet
▪️after finding where the toilet was be prepared to walk up a thousand stairs
To summarise I would go again because the food was good but expect long delays and bad bad customer service. Plus this is not a place for disabled people who use wheelchairs.
I have been going to Alounak for more than 15 years. Yasmine who served us was attentive and an absolute delight. The tafton bread is freshly made in a traditional clay oven, served with the mixed starter which includes the houmous, mashed aubergine, aubergine with tomato and salad olivere. For mains we had the mixed grill, the portions are big enough to feed two people. Rice, salad, chicken and lamb. Also, I recommend trying the Ghormeh Sabzi, it's one of the restaurants specials on a Friday and Saturday. Lemonade is freshly made and delicious. There is a queue almost every time I visit, but definitely worth the wait. This place is authentic with a simple menu, portions are generous and prices are reasonable. Highly recommended.
Food is good but the service could be better.
The waiting staff need to chill, and let customers finish what's on the plate before asking to take it away.
Be more considerate towards your customers and stop hurrying to clear the table.
Wow. Packed with locals. Warm, traditional and delicious Persian cuisine. My lamb kebab with rice, salad and hot pickle was beyond superb. I highly recommend. Lovely, attentive staff. I will be back ❤️
