With its stylish decor, Shandeez is bringing a bit of pizzaz to Cricklewood’s Middle Eastern cuisine scene, combining traditional Persian recipes with a contemporary setting for a special dining experience. Located on Cricklewood Lane, Shandeez serves up an array of Middle Eastern dishes, ranging from mezze plates to quick snacks and exquisite main course dishes. Share some tabbouleh, chicken wings or mirza ghasemi (grilled aubergines, garlic and egg cooked in a tomato sauce), before getting tucked in to your main. London’s Shandeez are masters when it comes to the art of charcoal-grilling and we recommend going for the mixed grill in order to sample an array of mouth-watering meats. Finish off with some fallodeh, a Persian sorbet created with rice noodles and lemon juice.
