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.

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.
