I'm sure the owners are Iranian, but this feels exactly like how I would expect a white person with dreads to open a Persian eatery; pretentiously 'gap yah'. Four stars for the food though, in particular the wraps which are good value for the money. Rub shoulders with the real Iranis up in Acton, but for south London - this is a great place to have round the corner.

Lots of soul, v different to surrounding places to eat, unusual food and sort of anti-hipster (but in a good way, not a hipster way). Don't expect high-end dining; do expect friendly, warm community-feeling hospitality.

OMG the food here is so good. I'm not vegetarian but could be if everything I ate was like this!!!
There were five of us and we had the party platter which is more food than you'll need + two drinks each at the bargain price of £20/person.
It's BYO here also (so be warned). That's said the staff are SUPER lovely and will come bring appropriate glasses for your chosen beverage without you even having to ask!!

Lovely food and staff. Reasonable prices too. Love their shop for getting unusual grains and spices.
