No matter if it’s your first or 27th visit to this little Persian spot just off Westbourne Grove, you’ll feel like you’ve been coming here forever. Cosy, with definite GLP energy, this is a restaurant that you can imagine having an intimate third date in while also making a mental note of how many people it seats so you can book out the whole space for a lowkey celebratory meal. However you choose to use this restaurant, there’s a few things you should know. They’ve got some excellent dips, grilled classics, and homely stews. Our go-to order consists of both aubergine dips, the mast-o-khair, and a mixed grill to share. The servers are friendly and useful - another sign of a GLP - and when they gently nudge you to order two bread baskets instead of one, you should listen.
