We had an early dinner and chose the 2-course menu. There is a wide selection of mains and all the food was delicious. The service was friendly and quick. You may need to book if you go later in the evening.

Visited recently for a group night out. Food is good and tasty, there are no issues there. But I would simply not return because of the service. The waitress is rude, doesn't smile, ignores you, was seen walking across the very small and intimate restaurant...More

The food was lovely, service was great. Being gluten and dairy free it is not always easy to eat out. The staff were considerate and helpful to provide us with a meal to remember.

Apologies to the rest of the "Excellent!" reviewers. I happen to live in a part of the world where I set a pretty high bar for "excellent" Persian food. The Koobideh Kabab (ground beef) was, eh, ok. A little dry, and not so flavorful. You...More

Excellent Persian meal. Quiet place for a late lunch. Friendly staff. Tucked to the side but very close to the Richmond rail station. Truly enjoyed my meal and will return at my next trip to Richmond.

The best Persian food I've ever had in London: fresh ingredients, nicely cooked, + great service, price level isn't bad at all. And our son loved it as well. Absolutely delightful experience. Also best food in Richmond so far and we've dined probably at all...More
