Sit facing the windows at this Iranian restaurant and you’ll look out on stagnant traffic and furniture showrooms; face inwards and your eye alights on straw-matted walls hung with Persian rugs and unframed paintings of bearded merchants, a ceiling strung with coloured lanterns (faanoos) and a turquoise clay oven.
Dishes range from stuffed vine leaves and plates heaped with sabzi khordan (mixed fresh herbs) to joojeh (chicken kebab) and ghorm-e sabzi (lamb and herb stew) and kashk e bademjan (fried aubergine and oinions with yoghurt purée and spices. Desserts include baklava, Persian ice cream and faloodeh - starch noodles with rose water, sugar and crushed ice served with a slice of fresh lemon.

I celebrated my birthday last Saturday in Faanoos restaurant in Chiswick. Delicious food, excellent Service and great entertainment... all with very reasonable price. The staff, manager and the Owner went out of their way and well impressed me and my nearly 40 guests at the party. I highly recommend this wonderful place to anyone who would like to have great party. oh just to mention that even the drinks at Faanoos are very reasonable. They get 10/10 and the 5 star from me and all my guests!!!
