“Ignore the shabby decor, just savour the outstanding Persian food” (“grilled meat and bread is the order of the day”), at this long-established “hustling and bustling” shopfront cafe off the Edgware Road, where “waiters do their best with manic crowd control”. “Don’t come in a big group, there just isn’t room!” (NB it’s BYO, with “Waitrose round the corner for the wine”).
A “lovely, little Middle Eastern spot”, just off the Edgware Road – “simple but very atmospheric”, serving “authentic, basic dishes” featuring “large portions of freshly grilled meat”; BYO.
“A little corner of Iran”; this “dingy” grill, just off the Edgware Road, serves “tender and tasty” lamb kebabs plus “other varieties of singed flesh”; BYO.
“One of the best meals you can find for under a tenner!” – this “modest”-looking pit stop, just off the Edgware Road, offers “some of the tastiest Persian food in town”, and at “dead cheap” prices too; BYO.
