  • I was recommended to come here for great food at reasonable prices and since my daughter lives only a few minutes drive away, we arranged to meet here for a family lunch. There were seven of us and wh...  more »
  • This place is a joy to eat in and well worth the effort to get there. Don’t be in a rush as your food is cooked to order but it’s well worth the wait.  more »
  • First time visiting Persepolis, came because of the amazing reviews. We went for the £20 tasting menu as that was recommended and as we were new to Iranian food we wanted the best. The food was great,...  more »

  • Absolutely lovely place. Almost as nice as my mum's food and that's a massive complement. Haven't had Persian food for quite sometime since becoming vegan but this was definitely worth the wait
  • Wow this place is something else. If you want different - this is it. Quirky little shop for various Persian goods + cafe for food that is open at night too. V kitsch. Friendly staff and accomodating. Serve Vege only.
  • First impressions were ok. Very quaint, artisan, relaxed atmosphere. However after waiting to be seen to a table you find out how close the tables are together. I couldn’t fit in with a rucksack and 1 small shopping back. Also the tables and chairs didn’t match so I couldn’t pull my chair in any further to allow the person behind me to get in. Prices aren’t too bad for London. £6.50 for 4 slices of halloumi and bread £2.50 for a small glass or apple juice. Just one toilet for the cafe, fair enough for the size of it. However I had to walk through food stores and kitchen prep areas. Don’t feel too hygienic but must have passed health inspections to stay open. Tried to pay by card but the reader wouldn’t work as someone was using the phone? Not great internet connection then for 2017. Overall, too many chair and tables for the size of the cafe, wouldn’t like to be stuck in there with a fire. Food was nice just travel lightly.
  • Great tiny place with lovely quirky staff. SO nice to have too much choice as a veggie for once! Also taken friends here both meaty and vegan, and had good reports all round.
  • Delicious, good value, take away mezze and wraps. The shop itself is full of inspiring spices and ingredients. The staff were extremely helpful and offered up recipes and ideas. A must visit.
