“'A taste of Persia'”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

My wife and I were guests of our friends who recommended this small but intimate restaurant. Authentic Iranian food nicely spiced, freshly produced and good service representing good value for money. Whats not to like? if you'd like a change from Indian, try this cuisine; you'll not be dissapointed. 8/10 Malcolm S Stott

“Very good value small restaurant”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

I'd been intending to try Faanoos for ages & wasn't disappointed when I finally went there. Food was very good & reasonably priced & you can even BYO wine for £4 corkage which helps make it all even more affordable. I'll certainly be back there again before very long.

The only downside was some singer/musicians who turned up to play. For a very small restaurant they were too loud and intrusive but as they only stayed about 10 mins that wasn't a big problem.

“A real gem”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

This is now my "local" and it NEVER disappionts, don't try to go late on a weekend without a reservation as "you won't get in", it packed with Persian's who are in the know i.e. check the cars parked outside!!!, the food is awesome, the bread cooked in front of you, try the mix grill for 4 with sour currants, with a mix herb dish to start with Feta, Humous and Garlic bread, also you are able to bring your own bottle "so bring a strong re" and when your in there look around at what other are drinking, you'll see a profusion of St Estephe, Bordeaux and the like.... also dont forget to finish with the persian icecream with noddles and mint tea, this place is off the "hook" on all counts, a REAL GEM!!!!

“Brialliant food and lovely atmosphere with bread oven in restaurant”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Fanoos is a great little restaurant that never dissapoints. We have eaten here on numerous occasions and find the food, service and character excellent. The food is very fesh, the spices subtle and varied and the fresh bread from the bread oven within the restuarant is dangerously tasty. Apparently have a sister restuarant so worth checking out both.
