We booked as a group of 7 and had the set menu (£22 a head including a service charge). Oh my, we were not disappointed. The food just kept on coming and Sally, the owner, really looked after us. We were one gluten free and...More

Went in a big group for my friend's birthday where we were given the Snackistan menu (which changes every day). Unfortunately I am allergic to all nuts and pulses, which featured pretty heavily on the menu that day! Sally Butcher was incredible about it and...More

I organised our work Christmas party at Persepolis and it was fantastic! The owner- Sally- was incredibly helpful. She promised us a vegetarian feast and she really delivered. The portions were large, tasty and inventive. Some of the more carnivorous staff members were skeptical about...More
