Good grill, medium service

The meat grills and jasmin rice are perfect. Good price too, but the service has to improve. Any extra request was not easy to get, such as an extra plate for bones or ice for a soft drink.

Me, my husband and daughter always like to visit this place as the food is always tasty, and grilled to perfection. I recommend to get the mezze starters with a fresh cooked naan....we will defiantly be visiting here again.

This was previously called Paradise which was very good. It appears to have changed hands and went down with long waits for meals and many times being told 'its finished'. The good news is that now known as Abshar, it is regaining its former glory. Went there last week and the manager was very welcoming and the staff trying their... More

We told the silly man , we are trip advisor fans upfront, Hoping he would look after us. However that was not the case. The food was good, but ask a question of him an his waitress, and because there english is poor, they come across as very rude. To the point you dont want to ask another question. Still... More

Really good Iranian food and great value. We've eaten here before and liked it but seems to have got better. Would really recommend the restaurant to anyone.

This place has changed hands. This address is occupied by Abshar, another Persian restaurant. According to signboard outside, it has 020 3602 1996 as phone number. The £20 three course menu is excellent

food was absolutely delicious and fresh the restaurant is well decorated with a nice vibe. Unfortunately the service was not sufficient and waitresses looked scruffy but were friendly so a little training is all they need. I love this place and will defo be back x

I've eaten here quite often. They have the best chicken kebabs I've ever tried. I always order the same thing - chicken fillet kebabs served with rice and salad. The chicken is tender and moist and marinated in saffron and lemon - divine! I also always get the aubergine starter (made with walnuts) and served with naan bread. This is... More
