When I think at persian food, my imagination brings me directly inside the Faanoos Restaurant in Chiswick. Not sure if it’s because that is my most recent positive “persian experience” or if it’s because their food is the best persian I’ve had yet. The only thing I’m sure about is that I love this place.
I’ve been here three times and each experience has left me extremely content. A couple of weeks ago I had here a quick-lunch with a couple of friends. It’s a perfect way to knock off from work.
The setting of this place is amazing. As soon as you put your first step in, you leave the busy London and get drifted to Iran in a blink of an eye. Decoration is all Persian themed, intimate and very warm. The first thing you notice when you enter is the Tandoor, the typical cylindrical clay oven used in Iran and other eastern countries. Their typical persian bread, Naan, is baked in the Tandoor, freshly made for each customer.
What can you eat at Faanoos?
You can choose from a range of 15 different starters that vary from rice dishes, different types of breads, salads with feta cheese, savoury yoghurts (to have with bread) and more.
Kabab rules! Many different varieties available: served with delicious saffron rice, chicken, minced lamb, grilled lamb… and many others. You can also try their yummy mixed grills, sandwiches and other specials.
The dishes I like most at Faanoos are the kebabs, very tasty and made with the best meat. The last one I tried was the Minced Lamb and Chicken Kebab: 1 skewer of minced lamb, 1 skewer of chicken breast, salad, wrapped in the naan bread . My mouth is watering as I write this.
Impeccable. Quick enough to complete lunch in 30 – 45 if you need to. I was happy with service in all my 3 occasions, either lunch or dinner.
Kebabs vary from £5.95 to £10.95. Reasonable!
