“What a find” – Kian Samyani mines his Iranian background at this Soho three-year-old, to create “exceptionally tasty kebabs and mezze, a cool vibe and bread baked fresh from the oven right before your eyes”. The food may not be “entirely authenticly Persian” (for a start, many prime ingredients are British), but it can be “exceptional” and the “menu is interesting”. Top Tip: “sit at the bar and watch the guys at work to heighten your appetite”.

“Fun and trendy” Persian yearling in Soho – a busy, small (35-seater), no-bookings dive that’s part of JKS Restaurants’s portfolio, where the seats at the counter look onto a grill, rotisserie and clay oven. On the menu from Iranian chef Kian Samyani, “gentrified” kebabs (arguably “it’s really all about the meat”, this place), flatbreads and mezze that are “interesting and full of flavour”.

“Fun and trendy” Persian newcomer in Soho – a busy, small (35-seater), no-bookings dive that’s part of JKS Restaurants’s portfolio, where the seats at the counter look onto a grill, rotisserie and clay oven. On the menu from Iranian chef Kian Samyani, “gentrified” kebabs (arguably “it’s really all about the meat”, this place), flatbreads and mezze that are “interesting and full of flavour”.

Summary

In conjunction with the successful JKS restaurant empire, Iranian chef Kian Samyani will open this Persian restaurant in Soho in October 2018; named for the toasted rice snack eaten at fairs in Iran, the restaurant will replicate the street food and hole-in-the-wall kebab shop cuisine of the chef’s homeland.

"Delicious kebabs grilled over the coals, they are so tasty, the sourdough tandoori flat breads are delicious for dunking in any of their truly delicious dips. Fun to sit at the bar and watch the action. Nice friendly service too."
