Persian Covent Garden

Simurgh says ?

Simurgh has all the ingredients for a fun night out with friends – good food, good wine and belly dancers. Who could ask for anything more? Located in Covent Garden on Garrick Street, Simurgh is a Persian/Iranian restaurant which is ideal for work parties and birthdays, and the dining room – with exposed brick walls, Mediterranean blue accents and Persian carpets – has a laid-back and friendly atmosphere. The chefs at Simurgh are inspired by centuries-old Persian recipes with a contemporary twist, and we love the duck and walnut stew cooked in a thick pomegranate and walnut sauce with cinnamon and saffron, and the lamb and lime curry cooked with yellow lentils and aubergine in a saffron and tomato sauce.

  1. Last week I had dinner at Simurgh, "the first Iranian restaurant in the heart of London". It's a stone's throw away from work but I never thought of entertaining guests here for a slight fear of the unknown; my knowledge of Persian food is limited to the ubiquitous kebabs/mezzes so I wouldn't have anything exciting to say about the lot. Also, there's been mixed reviews about the place so I stuck to nearby established restaurants. A bit too safe, I have to admit. My date and I decided to try something new so I figured it's time to face the unknown. The restaurant is a knockout inside. It's a teeny space but it was quite pretty: exposed bricks adorned with tapestry and murals, wood carvings, lamps and carved tables that transport you to ancient Iran...
