If you have never tried Iranian/Persian food go for the stews such as gormeh sabzi full of herbs and preserved lemons or the geymeh.with lentils. My mother in law is from Tehran and she loves Caspian.

It was only by walking past the restaurant I discovered it although I am familiar with the area. Although we arrived later than expected staff were attentive and gave us good advice prior to choosing. Restaurant was quiet when we arrived but soon filled up during the course of our meal. We order houmous as a starter and this was... More

Caspian is an authentic Persian restaurant. I was impressed from the cleanness and the atmosphere of the site. Service was very friendly and quick, the food was genuine and well presented. My lady is Persian and she could speak Farsi with the welter which was extremely kind. Great value for money. I will definitely go back there again!

A friend told us about the Caspian Restaurant in South East of London. Based on her recommendation, we visited this place. We were impressed by the lovely decoration and tables arrangement. We ordered Masst-o-Mooseer, Kashk-e Bademjoon, and Paneer Sabzi for the starter. For the main course, all decided to have Kabab Makhsoos with rice. We loved the starter very much.... More

Have been here 3-4 times recently with my 91 year old grandmother and Iranian wife. Food is amazing - my grandmother loves it. Service is great, easy to park etc. One to try locally

Pretty much my first Persian restaurant and, from the menu at least, I was assuming something like a Turkish restaurant gone amok - but no. Its true that they have kebabs on the list of main courses but when that list includes sea bass (marinated with dill, thyme etc) its fair to assume that we're not talking your average kebab... More

Just spent a lovely evening at The Caspian with my girlfriend and her mum. Amazing food and brilliant service (and considering how busy it was they really didn't need to be as attentive as they were) Will definitely be regulars now we have moved to the area. Very family friendly as well.

Attractive restaurant but service was appalling. Dirty dishes left on the table, drinks orders forgotten, waiters chatting amongst themselves at back and worst of all we had to wait nearly an hour for our main courses without warning or apologies. The food was ok but nothing special, kebabs averages ant the stews had cheap ingredients.
