Time Out Says

As soon as we walk into this lush Iranian spot, a chef is preparing bread right at the lobby with a tandoor next to him. Nice touch, we think. It’s not exactly a massive space but it looks rather cosy. All the tables have an antique three-candle stand placed over a traditional Iranian-style diamond-shaped table cloth. The plates in their white and shades of blue colours reflect the culture as well as the old fashioned hanging lamps do. The handmade pots hanging on the wall complete the style.

The menu is well-balanced with a good selection of hot and cold appetisers, clay pot dishes and multiple meat varieties and grilled options to choose from. However, don’t snack too much on the freshly baked bread they serve along with some cheese and walnuts. The lamb kofta starter is served on a bed of tomato sauce and tastes authentic and delicious with lentils and nuts mixed in. The olive salad is very traditional and strong in taste – skip it if your palate isn’t prepared
for the intensity.

The grill platter comes with three types of Iranian rice. It’s an absolute treat with the best of the meats including some incredibly soft beef tenderloin, lamb chops loaded with flavour, meat kebabs, tasty chicken breast pieces and our favourite chelo kebab. It’s wonderfully presented and the portion is just perfect for two hungry bellies.

With top-notch food and brilliant service, Parisa goes straight up in our list of regulars.
