Kandoo

Squaremeal Review of Kandoo ?

The Edgware Road isn’t exactly short of skewered-meat venues, but this lovely Persian eatery is a prime exponent of the genre. In the window sits a clay oven, from where emerge warm pillowy breads covered in sesame seeds: ideal for scooping up fried aubergine & yoghurt purée or own-made hoummos. Follow these with a grilled lamb dish, or opt for Persian specialities such as duck breast in walnut & pomegranate sauce, perhaps accompanied by dogh, a refreshing yoghurt drink. Sugar-laden Persian desserts provide a sweet conclusion. Positioned at the St John’s Wood end of Edgware Road, the restaurant doesn’t have the bustle of its southern neighbours, but remains a great bet for decent inexpensive food. You can even BYOB – all part of the Kandoo attitude here.

Don’t be put off either by the name (shared with a brand of potty training wipes) or the location (in the less salubrious part of the Edgware Road); Kandoo does some of the best Middle Eastern food to be found in London. I have been a sporadic visitor to the restaurant over the last fifteen years since it opened, but a recent weekend lunchtime trip there confirmed that the place is still delivering, in terms of food, service and value. Despite the somewhat unpromising location, inside, the main dining...

We had a really excellent meal. We were staying at the Hilton in Edgware Road and were really pleased to have left the place and found such a wonderful place. The only donwside was the atmosphere – there were not a massive number of people on a Monday night at about 8pm. Would highly recommend it.
