Be sure to start out your meal at Narenj with a pot of Persian tea before taking on delicious starters like mast-o-khiyar (yogurt with finely chopped cucumber and dried mint) or ash-e-reshteh, traditional Persian vegetables and noodles. For mains, decide from options like charcoal grilled sea bass, barg, a charcoal grilled tenderised lamb fillet on a skewer, joojeh, boneless charcoal grilled chicken breast (also on a skewer) or the vegetarian khoreshte bamieh (okra cooked in tomato sauce and garlic with saffron rice). Enjoy a special Persian dinner at Kingston upon Thames’ Narenj – reserve in advance, especially if travelling from London!
Good service. Very welcoming. Pleasant ambience. Good choice of dishes on menu including mixed meze starter and mixed grill main course. Would go again to try other dishes.
I've walked past this place a number of times on my way to one of the inevitable chain restaurants on Kingston riverside, wondering whether this might be a better bet – and indeed it is. Really authentic Iranian food, keenly priced and served with great charm. A bit quiet on a Sunday night but the staff and owner made it feel warm and cosy. So, ditch the chains for once and try something genuine and run by a family rather than some distant suits.
Very pleasant environment, friendly staff, good food. Would dine there again. A nice introduction to Persian cuisine with vegetarian options as well as a range of meat and fish dishes. Delicious Persian desserts flavoured with rosewater, quite unusual.
A marvellous evening in all respects: great food and service, convenient location. All staff are Iranian, so they know very well about the meals. This was my fourth visit and I will be back!
Lovely Persian cuisine in the heart of Kingston. I went there for lunch with some friends and the food was delicious. We ordered from the lunch menu and it was of great value and portions were of a good size. We did order freshly made hot naan bread (a must) and humus for starters which was equally delicious. I would go again and try the a la carte menu to try the other dishes and specials X
Great little restaurant, we've eaten here before and the food is always good. Drink options are a little limited and I'm not too keen on the ceiling lights which can be a bit blinding, but I'm being picky.
A great atmosphere and great food at a reasonable price well worth a visit. The place is very much the sort of restaurant that will be on my favorites list
Delicious food and charming staff. Hummus, aubergine, sea bass, chicken and lamb kebabs were all excellent. Would definitely go back. Very good position for eating before or after the Rose Theatre.
A lovely place to eat - friendly, attentative staff and delicious food in lovely surroundings. Will definately visit again and would recommend it to everyone!
First time coming to this restaurant and overall the place itself was quality and so was the presentation/taste of the food. The only downfall was, waiting about 20/30 mins for our food.
Tasty food and friendly service! Nice views of the Thames on the back terrace! We would go there again. Thank you for the lovely time!
We were very pleasantly surprised by Narenj. Lovely fresh, tasty food at very reasonable prices, friendly staff and great location. We will definitely be returning.
Good Persian food. Very attentive service. We had lunch there sitting on the balcony over looking the Thames. Nice sunny afternoon in May. Most enjoyable!
