This dinky, family-run Iranian on Edgware Road ain’t much to look at, but don’t mistake low key for poor quality. Ignore the flashier shisha shops at the top of the road and you won’t be disappointed. Just one look at the bloke turning out fluffy piles of freshly made bread from a special oven up front should tell you that. The restaurant has been owned by the same family for 15 years and the decor’s getting a bit rough round the edges, but the friendly service and decent prices more than make up for it. Try the Mirza Ghassemi, a traditional hot aubergine, egg, tomato and garlic dip and don’t miss out on the grilled meat platters. The crowning glory of course is the freshly made bread; light, fluffy and lip-smackingly good. Friday and Saturday nights are always fun with live music in the back room (which can be hired for functions) and shisha pipes in the back garden. The BYOB policy with no corkeage charge is a sure winner and keeps the locals flocking back for more.
