Tasty food, small but good quality selection of Georgian, Armenian and Lebanese wines. Friendly staff. The restaurant itself is small so waiting times can be up to couple of hours. No table booking is available. Slightly overpriced but worth a visit.

Really enjoyed 'date night' with my wife here. The food is excellent but even more enjoyable as it's different to the usual fare - Persian is hardly typical cuisine for most people in the UK.
We also found the staff to be really knowledgeable and definitely a cut above most places in terms of attentiveness and just being 'on it'. Their recommendations were also bang on showcasing a good mix of everything the restaurant had to offer.
The place itself is small but even though full it wasn't noisy or hectic in the back room which was an added bonus.
Not the lengthiest of reviews but I'd say its really worth a try for something a little different. It's not hard to see why it got a Bib Gourmand from the Michelin guide so quickly - definitely a great addition to London.

First visit, initially a little disapointed sitting by the door as a foursome, that was soon dispelled by the brilliant waiter who explained every dish and put a menu together for the four of us, superb food, lovely drinks non alcoholic and with alcohol. The noise was great and we chatted away in an authentic environment the door was forgotten and this place is superb.

The atmosphere, food, music, everything was fantastic. Definitely try their hummus which is very tasty and unique. Service was great, Dominic was very friendly and helpful.
I agree with other users: Try to get a cozy table in the back, far from the entrance. I loved my table as seen in my pic.

Was incredible before. Now rubbish, saffron rice didn’t taste of any saffron. Before it was soft, full of saffron flavour and buttery. Same with jujeh kebab, taste was gone. It’s the usual with London restaurants - first 6 months are insanely good then they get the customers + reviews and then they implement the cost saving strategies. I am Middle Eastern and know a good Persian like the back of my hand, I think they’re now catering to a more European crowd. Not going back.
