SquareMeal Review of Yas

Somewhere to ‘lighten you up after a day in Olympia’, this long-standing Persian venue packs in plenty of charm. Cheery red walls are festooned in pictures, & white-clothed tables are gathered around the fully operational bread oven. For lunch, you could share five cold starters for £15 – perhaps stuffed vine leaves, a yoghurt & spinach dip, & a traditional dish of herbs & Persian cheese, best accompanied by chewy home-baked bread. Marinated, charcoal-grilled lamb is the highlight of main courses (which all come with fluffy Persian rice), though sea bass or okra casserole provide alternatives. Open until 4am daily, Yas is one of the few local restaurants where you can enjoy a sit-down meal after the clubs close, but beware of the price hike after midnight.

We loved this place after stumbling inside for the first time during our break at a business conference recently. It really did a lot to lighten us up after a day in Olympia. The food was really something to talk about, as non of us had really tried Iranian food before. Delicious food and we all had a bit too much to drink, we enjoyed it so much! The staff were nice and the atmosphere was good, it felt authentic. I would recommend this place to all with a taste for something different.
