Anar Persian Kitchen

The name of this Persian restaurant and wine bar on Portobello Road translates as 'pomegranate' - a fruit native to Iran and popular throughout much of the Middle East. It's little surprise, then, to see its sweet and sour seeds sprinkled throughout Anar's contemporary Persian menu.

That menu features dishes ranging from dolmeh, torshi and salads of lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber with walnuts and feta cheese to meats cooked on the charcoal grill, slow-grilled chicken wings and fesenjan khoresht - an authentic Persian stew of hand-shredded, slow-cooked poussin with crushed walnuts and pomegranate purée. Keep an eye out for daily specials, too.

The dessert selection continues the authentic theme - think shirini (traditional Persian biscuits), ab havij with bastani (carrot and saffron ice cream) and faloodeh (a Persian sorbet made from thin starch noodles combined with rose water and lime juice). There's even a delivery service, for those unable to dine in.

Anar Persian Kitchen says
Anar Persian Kitchen is an idyllic place to enjoy authentic Persian cuisine. Located in the bustling, quirky setting of Portobello Road, we are very much reminiscent of Persian bazaars and antique shops.

Perhaps 'A' below was unlucky. We had good food and found the place pleasant and relaxing.

I live about five minutes from the restaurant and just love this little place! It feels like stepping into someone's living room and the food, classical music and staff are amazing. No idea why Timeout gave this 3* only.
