Del’ish – Persian food in Great Portland St

perswian

We love Persian food and found this spot in a quiet street off Great Portland Street and Warren Street. As it was an impromptu meet with a friend we had not reserved a table – this particular friend doesn’t believe in booking at the best of times anyway –but thankfully on this occasion it was not needed. The place was pretty quiet – well it was a Monday night.

 

We were seated in the middle of the small restaurant and given menus bound in rather old fashioned faux leather. The menu was split into small meze sharing dishes and larger grill plates. We went for a mix, ordering; hummus, roast vegetable meze and a sharing mixed grill platter. The mix grills were not served with sides – worth bearing in mind if you do go.  

 

The waiter looked as though he’d rather be anywhere but there and took a very long time to take our order. Any special requests were met with a grunt and ‘ok’.

 

The food came out fairly speedily but considering how quiet it was, there would be no real reason for a hold up. The grill came with spicy sausage, lamb kebabs, chicken skewers, lamb chops and prawns (which we swapped for falafel). It was well presented on a sharing platter with separate sections for the different meat but all of the meat was over cooked. It was tasty but just a little dry.

 

This place is a quick, convenient and wallet friendly spot in central London; perfect for a quick catch up with friends after work, but nothing more. Don’t expect great service or rich Persian cuisine. This place is good, not great.
