I have been visiting this restaurant since I was a child, in the 1980's. I now have the pleasure of taking my son to eat at The Apadana. Beautiful food, polite staff. This place is a haven for those who like flavoursome, aromatic food!

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.

the service is awful at this restaurant!
We booked our table for a family of 6 for 3pm on last Sunday. We were celebrating my end of cancer treatment(clearly wearing a T shirt saying cancer survivor)! We are 2 couples and 1 child and 1 baby.
We arrived we were seated and orders taken so far so good. The menu only has pictures and names of the food but no prices?????
After eating we ordered tea and Baklava just to be told that our table was double booked and if we can have the tea free of charge outside in the wind and cold! I have explained that how can you ask such a thing for a family with young children??? The waitress startled and said free tea and fruits.... shame on the owner/manager who asked her to ask us the absurd request to have tea in the cold outdoors.
We sat put, they have started clearing the table and suddenly the same waitress brought out a hand held hoover and started clearing out place mats and table from grains of rice! Awful and rude!
They still charged us service charge of 10%!
This restaurant went on my black list
Food was OK, you can get better Iranian food in other London restaurants.

Shared a mixed grill, meat was soft, fresh and cooked to perfection. Ordered a Saffron ice-cream also, very tasty and sweet. Staff are incredibly polite and friendly. Would happily take friends and family here with pleasure. Good portion sizes !

Amazing meal tonight. Ate out the front. Staff were friendly and attentive and the food was excellent. Our usual Persian restaurant was closed so we thought we would give Apadana a try. Glad we did, this is now our new favourite. Highly recommended
