About Apadana Restaurant

Let the flavours and aromas of Persia whisk you away to another state of mind at Apadana Restaurant. Founded in 1967, this local legend is proud of its status as one of London’s oldest Persian dining establishments, and they’re continuing to lead the pack by staying open to innovation while respecting the past. Found down Kensington High Street, the Kensington outlet is in a convenient location for diners from all over town. Never disappointing, the dishes on offer at Apadana Restaurant are all made fresh to order using the best ingredients and traditional recipes passed down through the generations. For first timers, we recommend the joojeh (saffron and olive oil marinated baby chicken, chargrilled and served with saffron rice, bread and salad) or the Apadana special grill with chicken fillet, lamb and chargrilled minced lamb.

Apadana has a beautiful interior & an authentic exterior. The food is fantastic (as if you're in a restaurant in Tehran). The service is polite, friendly and helpful. The food is reasonably priced for what they have to offer. It always provided a family atmosphere. We've been going there for nearly 20 years. We're sure to be going there again.
