Never eaten Persian before but the service was good and the food was very nicely cooked, plentiful and well presented. Had two starters with home made bread. Loved the mixed kebabs, the rice was light and fluffy. The only minor downer and I say minor. The bill came with 12.5% service charge and then I was asked if I wanted... More

I got the impression of a family restaurant with too many waiters running around, but the food was very tasty. Naan bread was huge and came quickly to the table as an appetizer.

On the night we got to... More

Staying in Notting Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
Notting Hill
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighbourhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.
