Ridiculously low prices for ridiculously delicious food. And plentiful portions. Come very, very hungry. Low on atmosphere, high on flavor, simple menu options. Highly recommended.

Really delicious food and very friendly service. We're lucky to have such a good local Persian restaurant. Portions are huge, and they're very happy to give take-away cartons. Excellent value and will certainly come again.

The food and service was great at Reyhana, we had a mixed grill platter which was very tasty, the apple tea was also fantastic. Small place but would certainly go back again!

Reyhana has the most authentic and delicious Persian food I've found in London, and at the most reasonable prices imaginable. They serve dishes that take my memories straight back to Tehran. The servings are so generous that it makes sense to share a few things between you. The aubergine-based starter with caramalized red onion in it is my favourite, and yesterday, for the first time, we tried the lamb shank main. It was tender, falling off the bone, and I'll be back for more

Really lovely food and friendly staff in a cute, clean restaurant. Incredible value for money too. It's a great place to get some nice food if you're going to The Fiddler's Elbow for a gig too - it's just across the road.

AMAZING FOOD. It was fairly quiet for a Friday night but that didn't bother us. The waiter was lovely. Again, food is so delicious. Even my father, who is Iranian, loved the food, and he is picky about every restaurant he goes to! Ha.

A hidden gem in Chalk Farm. My eat night-out was fabulous served by very friendly staff and the authentic Persian food. When we saw the bill, it was another surprise - so reasonable. Fully Recommended!

Great restaurant with wonderful food and attentive service. Can't believe how low the prices were. Please go - the only drawback is the neighbourhood! Also a little quiet on a Friday night so needs more diners for sure.

the service was excellent and very friendly at this pleasant restaurant. We found the food to be very rich so did not particularly enjoy it, hence the lower mark but this may be how Persian food is.
