This is one of the newer Persian restaurants in London’s now many Persian/Iranian variety. Its located in Harrow centre near all the shops close to the high streets. This bright new addition is one of a handful of restaurants owned by the same owners who have a couple of decades worth of experience under their belts and have done a great job with this one.
bring on the grills…
We sat as a group of 4 and ordered the “Makhsous” – £12.95 which is 2 skewers, one minced lam and one fillet lamb, the “Manoush Salad” £7.95, basically a mixed salad with a skewer of boneless chicken pieces, the “Momtaz” – £12.95, 2 skewers, one minced lamb and one boneless chicken breast.
All the dishes came with rice except the salad, the rice was cooked perfectly, fragrant and fluffy. I tried all of the grilled meats, The “Koobideh” was the best one of the lamb kebabs, tender and succulent and not overly spiced with just the right amount of onion in the mixture.
The shish was also good, but some of the pieces were more tender than the others, a slightly unique style of shish that you may be used to, Shish or Chenjeh is normally slightly thicker cut and not and tenderised and on the flip side a Barg is normally thinner and more tenderised, so this one kind of in between.
The chicken was lovely, cooked just enough and was very tender and marinated just right. The salad which came with the chicken seemed simple at fist but was filled with the usuals as well as olives, turnips and spring onions, it was fresh and crisp and had a nice lemon style dressing.
The service was fast and the waiters were very friendly. We didn’t get any desserts but were given a few complimentary Bakhlava.
All the food is halal and no alcohol is served, it is very suitable for families and there is a wide range of dishes including some veggie.
