Tarragon Persian Kitchen and Bar

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

A family run venture on London’s famous Lavender Hill, the Tarragon Persian Bar and Kitchen is owned by husband and wife Kami and Simin, both originally from Iran but now well known faces in the Clapham community. With fifteen years running restaurants under their belts, Kami and Simin have opened Tarragon as an almost unique venture in to serving Persian food in a contemporary atmosphere. Unlike other Persian restaurants in the capital Tarragon strives to offer a bright, modern setting in which your dining experience is enjoyed. The stunning bistro-style dining room has a real feeling of space and traditional touches are given a quirky twist in the Persian-print banquettes and stone baking oven which sit alongside an open bar space and ultra-modern tables. Tarragon’s menu is made up entirely of traditional Persian dishes, incorporating both familiar kebab grills with their healthy, charcoal grilled flavour, to the authentically spiced stews inspired by Persian home cooking.

Tarragon is a brilliant family run local restaurant. The food is brilliant, really authentic Persian cuisine. The menu is simple but everything is cooked to perfection. To start, try a selection of mezze - the spiced aubergine dip is divine, as is the hummus. Make sure you order their freshly baked bread to accompany all of the delicious starters , it is amazing! Mains were also great, the grilled meats were tender and flavourful and the rice is delicious. Also make sure you try one of their small stews – I recommend the lamb and lime. The service is excellent, so warm and friendly. You really feel like they are inviting you into their home for a meal. They offered us a free shot of grappa after our starters as a digestif to help us finish all of the food we ordered! Once we had paid we were also given a complimentary dessert – a freshly made Persian version of tiramisu. This has to be the highlight of the meal. The pudding was so light and tasty, made with mascarpone and rose water. No words could do this justice – the best dessert I have ever tasted! Incredible place - make sure you support this independent restaurant.
