what the critics say


Matthew Norman - 4/5

Thursday, August 30, 2012 - For almost two minutes, my mother raved about the taftoon nan, a giant disc of fabulous, sesame seed-studded bread, served piping hot from the tandoor by the door, and the three dips. 'This is the guv'nor,' she rightly observed of mirz am ghassemi, a gloriously smoky mash of chargrilled aubergine, fried onion, garlic and tomato. She also liked the hummus and a puree of boiled spinach and yogurt called boorami...'That's superb, but this chicken is unbelievable,' said my mother of what the menu calls 'chicken boneless', in which halal poultry is marinated in lemon and saffron for an alluringly orange finish, and grilled to juicy perfection.
