Fantastic, tasty, fresh food and helpful, attentive staff. There were 11 of us but all good came at the same time and was hot and delicious! Thank you!
The restaurant is really good. Amazing staff who were helpful in describing items on the menu, absolutely lovely food... well cooked, full of taste and flavour.
Fantastic food and very warm, friendly and relaxed staff. We had a great time at Apadana and will definitely return when we are back in the area.
Myself and 2 non-Iranians liked the food and the prices were reasonable. The coffee and complimentary Baklava were really nice but Bastani was too sweet with the wrong texture. The interior is a bit small as with many boutique restaurants. Overall good value and a good experience.
The experience was not pleasant!!! The cooker kept noking with his shose on the floor causing noise !!! We order mix starters that have five different dishes, we didn't like it and famous keshek badenjan was not good at all. The main course was ok we order beef kobedah and spicy kobedah with rich, this was good. The owner offer us tea at the end. We couldn't pay with credit card as they have a problem with their machine. Overall 3 is for the main course.
The food was excellent. I had the Koubideh and my wife had the Joujeh Kebab. The service was friendly but very casual. The plates from our bread and cheese were stacked and then left on the table While we ate the main course. We will certainly return to enjoy the authentic Persian food. Lovely.
Lovely welcome and as we were seated the entertainer or musician was playing a very loud piece. The food was tasty however I found it very expensive. Juices for £5, a bit steep for what it was. Overall ok!
The atmosphere was not so cosy and we expecded a more "oriental" touch. Food was ok but unfortunately they only have no variety of wines, they've got their house wine only, which was ok, but not not more.
Great food! Small little restaurant but it still as good as I remember from my childhood. Would def keep coming back as I loved the food.
