Apadana is a fantastic restaurant with great food and excellent service. Hadyar is a super waiter who goes out of his way to ensure the customer is happy. The food is fresh and the portion sizes are generous. I have been coming here since 1989 and this is as good as it has been.

Excellent service and the food was tasty too as well as presentation but the Fruits they served us was Awful. The sliced Pineapple, Watermelon, Pear, Orange and Mango must have been a day or 2 old. And the pictures I took speak for themselves. Shame on you as that was seriously disappointing

Booked here as part of an Iranian culture day.
Food 6 out of 10 compared to other Persian.
Salad presented as bowl of ingredients, not prepared as a salad, sent them back. Lamb very fatty, barely edible. Basic, bland food

Service 4 out of 10
Tried to book lunch online, system said 'nothing for two available.'. Sent email 8.30 for 12.30, no response. Phoned giving them last chance, got brusque response, a bit rude but took booking. Ironically the restaurant was empty the whole time.

Service poor and disinterested. When we left they waived from back of restaurant, couldn't be bothered to come and say goodbye, typifies the effort..

Fortunately the Epic Iran exhibition afterwards & V&A was great.

Had a wonderful experience as usual. Haider was so helpful as usual and the rest of the staff at Apadana are just as kind and helpful. Wonderful atmosphere and amazing food. Definitely recommend if you are in the area

Terrible restaurant do not visit. Extremely poor customer service, rude waiters who act like they are being forced to work in the restaurant, as opposed to doing their jobs. The food was absolutely atrocious, worst kebab I have ever eaten in my life. The meat was of a poor quality and quite clearly old, possibly even expired. The seasoning was also poorly done, resulting in a taste that can best be described as vomit inducing. I went in very hungry and could not even finish my meal. I have had much better food at cheap Iranian restaurants in the Midlands, for a fraction of the price of this place. That is how bad the food is. I am more than happy to pay for good food, but not for such a poor quality meal. Manager and owner did not even bother to see why our food was basically left untouched. Overall, an extremely poor establishment. If you value good food, good service and a great dining experience, avoid this restaurant at all costs.
