What a great find! So friendly and enjoyable. From the flatbread cooked in front of you in the oven to the really tasty dips, and then the lovely main courses. And to top it all it is "bring your own" drink so you don't have to pay through the nose. And when you leave just visit the grocery shops next... More

My friends have been going to this restaurant since the 80's and bragging about how good the food was. The small restaurant really surprised me. The lamb kebab was super juicy and tasty, it was the best I ever had in my life. We tried the grilled spring chicken and pleasantly surprised. The whole chicken was fully marinated with spices...

The food was so tasty. The service was really good, friendly clean staff. The restaurant over all was clean and tidy. A good family atmosphere. Nice Persian music playing whilst eating dinner. Couldn't be better. Don't let the bad reviews put you off.

I like Persian foods. But this one was rubbish and expensive. If you wan to pay by card you have to go to other shop and use your card in other store. Too much stress for a food.

We stopped in one evening for supper. It was fast and fresh. We ordered grilled lamb and bread. The bread was baked in the oven in front of us and the lamb was perfect. Nice side items with a salad and rice. It was meal #22 on the menu. We would definitely stop in again.

We've been coming to Apadana for many years now. Every time we have been the food has always been delicious, taste consistent and value for money. If you stick to the traditional menu, the chelo kebab and joojeh kebab with rice or naan bread is amazingly delicious and portions just right! I absolutely love Iranian food and will continue to...

This place used to be the best about 4 years ago, but since new owners have arrived it has gone downhill, I ordered the lamb strips/mince and marinated pieces with rice, the barbeque strip was very nice, the mince seekh was ok but a bit fatty tasting, but the worst was the marinated lamb pieces excuse my language but it...
