My daughter and I took my nephew who was visiting me from a city in another country where there are no Persian restaurant to this restaurant to have chelo kabab. Ordered our food and all looking forward to have a good meal. They brought the so called kabab laid in some kind of tomato sauce with three different flavored rice and salad with thousand island dressing!! I could not believe that our lovely traditional dish had been bastardized like that. Called the waitress for some kind of explanation, was told that this was mentioned in the menu (I did not read the mall writing as I could not imagine I would have anything but the normal chelo kabab which served in all the Persian restaurants all over the world. After complaining the waitress agreed to change the rice for plain white rice but the food still came back with that horrible sauce instead of barbequed tomato. I do not know if the owner is Iranian (all the staff were Eastern European) if so which part of Iran he comes from! Not to mention that one has to cross a dark room in order to get to the wash rooms. NEVER AGAIN AND WILL NOT RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE


i took my girlfriend there a week ago, we were strolling at the center of london and we wanted to have some good food - we took a selection of grills, called persian grill feast sini - was absolutely gorgeous they have very good grills and portions were satisfactory!staff was friendly, prices reasonable for central london. so we ere both pretty happy with it - i do recommend it!xxx

I booked a table here for my Birthday and I asked if we can get separate bills as there are a lot of us, I was told that they could do that. Went there, the man said "I cannot do that because it's hard for us". Great reason! If I knew this, I would have booked somewhere else as I have been to many restaurants in Covent Garden and they have always been okay with it. The kebab tasted like dry bread and the meat a week old. The salad was very simple. The music was too loud and they had no air conditioning. Had a very bad experience. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone and when asked by others where to go to try Iranian food I will definitely say NOT Simurgh. If anyone wants to try real authentic Iranian food please travel a bit out of Central London and you'll better food that is your money's worth.
