Behesht is one of the most well-known Persian restaurants in London, which offers a great selection of authentic and delicious Persian cuisine with attentive and excellent service.

I came here last year with some friends and I was blown away! This place was lovely and amazing.
The food was big portions and with a lot of flavour! We went for a variety of different courses which none let us down! The bread was made fresh with a baker at the front door soo as you walked in. I can’t fault this place at all. The service was great too we didn’t wait around to be seated and was served throughout our time dining here. I highly recommend this place and throughly enjoyed our time here.

Went here for a family gathering. 6adults, 2children and a baby. Very child friendly had no problem with the children looking at the fish and playing. The food was well worth the prices too nuch food had too take home. Atmosphere was beautiful stunning and service was on point. Really highly recommend this place and will go again.

Behesht came with a reputation but sadly did not meet our expectations when we visited at the end of January.

On arrival we were seated in what was a fairly cramped space, considering that there was a lot of space in the room we were in, this seemed unnecessary.
We ordered our food and beverages but were informed that tap water was not something that the restaurant provided - I would highlight to the restaurant that this is a legal requirement of any restaurant in the UK.
The food arrived quite quickly - we ordered starters and mains, but for all the positives that the speed of the service offered, this was let down by the overall quality and flavour of the food. The portion sizes in Behesht are sizeable, it is true, but this has a detrimental effect on the quality I would suggest. Possibly the biggest let down was the Zereshk Polo, usually a family favourite, the dish lacked all flavour and I ate only two mouthfuls.
Perhaps more concerning was the lack of any impetus of the staff - there was no recommendations, no highlighting of the size of the portions and no questions asked about our experience or food - this was from all staff members we encountered.

Prior to this visit, we were considering bringing our family, sadly though, it will not be a restaurant we will be returning too. With regret, it is not a restaurant I can recommend.

My first time in a Persian Restaurant and I totally enjoyed the food, place, service and my time here with my friends. We booked a reservation and were accommodated immediately upon arrival. We went here on a Sunday, and it got crowded and busy around 1pm-3pm so come early or just have a reservation. Worth a visit!
