SquareMeal Review of Faanoos Upper Richmond

Bronze Award

A dull parade of shops on the South Circular in Sheen is an unlikely place to find a Persian restaurant, and at first glance Faanoos seems more like your average takeaway. However, the big brick bread oven in the window gives the game away. Inside, there are caff-style tables, but the walls have been given a sand blast and gilded in a cursory attempt to produce a desert ambiance. Given all this, the food is bafflingly good. Fresh-baked bread and enticing, freshly made mezze start proceedings; kebabs follow. Chelo kabab chenjeh delivers great chunks of grilled lamb enhanced by a pungent herby marinade, served with piles of saffron rice. There’s a wine list, but it’s only for the desperate. Friendly staff wisely encourage customers to BYOB for a small corkage fee.

I'll be honest; I'm a die-hard regular of Faanoos, and this is why… The mezze dishes are the best flavoured I've had outside of the Med/Middle East. The staff are always polite and friendly. The atmosphere is warm and quirky in a good way. In terms of value for money, you can't beat it. My only quibbles, and I'm being deliberately fussy to give some balance to this, are that the aubergine veggie main has quite a watery sauce, and it gets awfully hot in the restaurant due to the bread oven. But overall – go to Faanoos. It has never disappointed me.
