Perfection at its finest. PLEASE KINDLY READ!

I went to this restaurant on Friday 7th May 2021 (purposely stating the exact date so that the owner knows I appreciated his hospitality) with my girlfriend to break my fast for Ramadan.

Without a doubt, the most enlightening evening I've ever had and I truly enjoy my fine dining. The food was cooked to absolute perfection. Fragrant, gorgeous barberry rice, koobideh was absolute heaven, chicken and king prawns were so succulent and flavoursome. Vegetables literally melted in my mouth. The owner was a pure angel and even though we arrived slightly late following our reservation, he welcomed us with refreshing, sweet Persian dates and ensured that the food was cooked rapidly for us so we could break our fast happily and to sure say, we did is an understatement.

Our Persian mint, ginger and saffron tea with organic cane sugar was gorgeous. I really wanted to go out of my way to tip the owner on this night but I only brought enough on me as I'm constantly travelling for work.

I will genuinely return as much as I can to this restaurant just because of your fabulous service. I wish I could thank the owner himself (I believe he is the owner as he was serving us) with full appreciation however, I hope he does read this and remember our presence.

You honestly made my year. Thank you for a such a beautiful experience.

Anybody whom decides to post even the slightest negative review is lieing to you so please ignore anything but positive feedback.

Lots of love -

Kookoo have won the Asian Restaurant Awards 'Best Middle Eastern Restaurant' which bought us here

While the food was slightly above average, there's one dish we'd definitely recommend travelling for - the Saffron Chicken Skewer (Joojeh) - and one which perhaps the Kebab Awards might consider.

Menu Recommendation
Starter - Spicy Chicken Liver (Jigar)
Main - Saffron Chicken Skewer (Joojeh)

HALAL STATUS: Fully Halal food menu • Alcohol served


Very friendly staff. Excellent value for money. Ordered a platter for 2. Meat was very tender and we'll seasoned. We went at a quiet time really nice inside. They also have a nice outside area for the summer. Unfortunately don't have saffron tea but they do have cinnamon and cardamom tea which is absolutely amazing. Really good place to eat!!

Went here on a Sunday for some light dinner, wasn’t busy at all but that was no consolation. The service was great and the food was very tasty and served hot. Would recommend.
