Fodor's Review

Wonderous Persian dips, unleavened taftoon breads, steaming lamb bakes, and flame-grilled kebabs are found at this lantern-filled Iranian canteen beloved by hoards of local Middle Easterners. Lines form on Westbourne Grove for the hot pita and taftoon breads straight from the clay oven, and you may have to wait to get in. Once inside, try grilled eggplant purée with walnuts, feta, mint, and tarragon, the Alounak kebabs, skewered marinated lamb with rice and grilled tomatoes, or the Zereshk polo—pungent saffron chicken with sweet-and-sour Iranian forest berries. Enjoy the Persian black cardamom teas and sweets, and lime juice–and–pistachio faloodeh Persian sorbet, but know that the sour yogurt drinks are not to everyone's taste.
