I'd heard a lot about Persepolis and wanted to try it. My son and friends loved it and so I was excited to be going. We all ordered the £20 tasting menu, to try the 'best they had to offer'. Whilst happy to eat vegetarian...More

We booked as a group of 7 and had the set menu (£22 a head including a service charge). Oh my, we were not disappointed. The food just kept on coming and Sally, the owner, really looked after us. We were one gluten free and...More

Went in a big group for my friend's birthday where we were given the Snackistan menu (which changes every day). Unfortunately I am allergic to all nuts and pulses, which featured pretty heavily on the menu that day! Sally Butcher was incredible about it and...More

I organised our work Christmas party at Persepolis and it was fantastic! The owner- Sally- was incredibly helpful. She promised us a vegetarian feast and she really delivered. The portions were large, tasty and inventive. Some of the more carnivorous staff members were skeptical about...More

Well flavored Iranian / Persian style dishes all served with style. Lots of unique and subtle flavors. Juices and smoothies to accompany. Portions are satisfying and its very good value. The £20 meal in the evening is really fun with 5 or more people. Huge...More

Wonderful food and an absolutely amazing experience. I actually happened to meet Sally and Jamie on one of their rare days off away from Persepolis. Over a nice meal and a few drinks we talked about a number of different things including food, family, politics,...More

The food and drinks are incredibly tasty and there are lots of delicious vegan options. The seating is tight so be prepared to be quite cosy with your neighbours, but the food is well worth the compromise.

This place has so much potential, BUT ..... Squashed while eating, so having to listen to other people's conversations. No elbow room and I'm not a large person. Having to move people while they are eating to get to our table. Having to ask to...More
