SquareMeal Review of Mohsen

For years, Kensington’s expat Iranian community has depended on Mohsen for proper Persian kebabs & other authentic delicacies. There isn’t much decor to speak of, but the kitchen dishes up a modest menu of fresh breads, grilled lamb & colourful salads alongside some very basic sides (an egg, anyone?). A bright conservatory area at the back is a nice place to sit & sip some fresh mint tea or sample the ever-popular chelo kebab (minced baby lamb), which is as ubiquitous as ‘meat & potatoes in England’, according to the owners. It’s always busy, but the atmosphere peaks on Sundays when the crowds descend & service is ‘in full swing’. Mohsen may not be the top Iranian in town (‘consistency’ is an issue for some readers), but it still hits the mark.

A favourite of many Iranians across town, Mohsen was once the best restaurant forPersian Kebab in town, but these days I do what I can to avoid it. It's not to say that the food isn't good but there is no consistency, the owners wife who manages it can be very heavy handed and forceful and sometimes the food just isn't up to scratch. There are, in my opinion, my better destinations for having great Persian food in London, but there will always be a mixed roar of opinions from us Iranian folk. Nevertheless, if you are in the area and want to eat a decent meal, then you shouldnt let my personal opinion deter you. Sunday lunch is the best time to go here, it is heaving, which usually means service is in full swing. Dont feel pressured if the bill is placed on your table, frankly having ruined a date I had a few years ago, I would actually ignore it until you feel ready to go.
