Persepolis, London

4.4
#53 of 275 in Shopping in London
Make a quirky gastronomical stop at Persepolis, a cafe and shop whose popularity has made it a tourist attraction. The food here is all Persian-inspired, with an emphasis on vegetarian options. Grab a snack or some tea, then browse the shop's selection of candies, spices, drinks, herbs, pickled items, and other unique finds. Take a bit to appreciate the charming illustrations decorating the venue, and pick up a recipe book or two to recreate the delicious meals at home. For travelers who use our international travel planner, London holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Persepolis and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

    Friendly. Not fast. Worth waiting for. Loved it. Good value for money too. And it adjoins a shop where we could not avoid being tempted to pick up some good value spices.  more »

    I had a ~ 6 hour layover in London recently and was determined to get to this restaurant, having heard about it from friends who'd been before. I had a spinach dip type dish to start (can't remember t...  more »

  • Nothing quite like it... colourful, vibrant and quirky. Staff are friendly and the food is very reasonably priced. All this said the star of the show is most definitely the food. Do not be put off by the fancy and exotic ingredients as everything I had on the menu was delicious, be sure to treat yourself to there carob syrup and halva ice cream sundaes!
  • Portions are generous. A unique place and very friendly staff. Recommend the banana smoothie.
  • Lovely little place. Staff were really friendly. Food was authentic, fresh, flavoursome and excellent value for money.
  • Persepolis is truly the jewel of Peckham. It always has a great atmosphere, warm welcoming staff and last but not least, delicious mouth watering food and drink. You will not be disappointed with the variety of vegetarian/vegan/gluten free dishes they have to offer, the staff go above and beyond to cater for your dietary needs. You can BYOB and it's wew cheap!
  • Cosy place but compared to other persian restaurants that I have tried the food here was just average which was disappointing having read other reviews. Most disappointing was the Iranian ice cream that was full of ice like when you forget to seal the tub.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
