We'd reserved a table for a pre-thetre meal and it was a lovely experience! The food was nice and the waiters were very polite and friendly. Very good service- starters, main course was all on time, did not have to wait long. The minty yogurt drink was refreshing. Very much wanted the dessert but were so full after 2 courses! We did try the Persian tea at the end and it was pleasantly relaxing!! The music, ambience- perfect!

Lovely food and brilliant show at the theatre later- a wonderful evening!!

Had a night out with my husband.The staff was very friendly and helpful..Warm welcome,good knowledge of the food and dishes and a fantastic night of belly dancing.
Had starters Masto mousir and persian prawns for starters.
The chicken kebabs in the main course called joojeh were tender ,succulent and tasty.
So was the lamb cooked with yellow lentils (Lamb and Lime)
To top it all the Persian tea (same as turkish tea)was very good..
Overall a good place to eat out..

What an absolute gem! Lovely little restaurant, conveniently located near Covent Garden and Leicester square. Oozing charm and atmosphere. Incredibly friendly and helpful staff and the food! Amongst many memorable dishes (there were 7 of us)the Duck and Walnut stew really stood out. The best I have ever eaten - and I have Iranian friends who are excellent cooks! Also noteworthy were the Gulf Prawns - huge and succulent - and the Chicken and Banana stew - like a gorgeous savoury banoffie pie!! Each dish was complimented by a wonderful rice dish and a gorgeous tasting salad. We are still drooling over the Lazy Pumpkin desert! Highly recommended - I am definitely going back!!

We had a very similar experience to the other user. We turned up for our booking for 8 people at 9pm on the dot to find he had given it to a party of 6 girls. The manager tried to tell us to sit down at a table for 6 people and wouldn't listen to us when we asked what about the other 2 people. We asked if we could get some drinks on the house whilst we waited for him to sort it out and he refused. He brought the bill to the table for another party who were having dessert, but still wanted coffee, to push them out. The manager started to become pysically abusive towards my sister and a friend when we tried to sort out the booking and find out what we could do. DO NOT GO HERE

Persian friends of mine had invited us to this restaurant and had booked for 7 people. At arrival, we found ourselves in a tiny basement area near the toilet. One table for 4 was on one side and one table for 3 on the other. When we complained, the manager started shouting and pointing at us. We decided to leave. But it got worse when the manager grabbed to push us out. It has definitely destroyed our belief of Persians as hospitable and friendly people. If you like to be abused, do not hesitate, go to Simurgh.
