Queues outside this local Persian are a reminder that it has established itself as one of the best places in town to eat minced ‘chelo’ kebabs with rice. Local Iranians & others in the know
generally open the show with a mixed mezze of strained yoghurt, freshly baked bread, walnuts & mirza ghassemi (smoked aubergine, garlic & tomato). For main course, it’s also worth taking a
leaf out of the locals’ book & sticking to the grilled kebabs – not only chelo, but also chicken with saffron & lemon. Essential sides include more warm bread, & basmati rice – pimped
up with raw egg yolk, butter & herbs if required. BYO keeps bills in check, & Alounak also provides takeaways & local deliveries. A ‘great place’ for a taste of true Persian cooking.
