Little Persia


The Little Persia restaurant is situated on the busy Queensway, close to Bayswater tube station, yet it really could not feel more exotic. Channelling the atmosphere of the Middle East, Little Persia is a laid back dining room with plushly upholstered seating, tin-topped tables and dimmed, romantic lighting. Cushions and inlaid mirrors, coloured lanterns and bright paintings are just some of the small details that make this such a lovely space. Outside, in a theatrically tented space you’ll discover a ‘shisha paradise’ where Eastern water pipes are enjoyed in weatherproof comfort. The lavish Little Persia menu provides great variety while also maintaining authenticity; traditional spices and herbs are sourced especially for the kitchen where enthusiasm and skill results in a unique, high quality range of dishes. Little Persia’s food is free from artifice, much of the menu grilled and accompanied by rice and salads, making this one of the most saintly places to eat in the area.

I love Persian food, but this place did not live up to my expectations. I guess I'm spoiled with the Persian restaurants on my side of the world. I had chicken soup, which was good. I also had chicken jujeh kabob, which was ok but missing something. I'm not sure what, but there was not enough lemon or sumac to fix it.more

My cousin and I were looking for a nice place with outdoor seating and tea or coffee. Since we were having trouble finding other quiet places with outdoor seating in this area, we opted for Little Persia and its traditional feel. We split a big pot of mint tea and enjoyed the pretty teapot and cups, as well as the relaxed atmosphere of the outdoor seating. I was expecting a fresh mint tea to...more

Restaurant that caters to its country folks and visitors is usually on the right track. Little Persia is such! We cam in with a group of 7, two kids. Place is comfortable but could do with some more art/curtains/color.

Drink selection is not great but manageable.

Food was very good, especially...more

It has never been this hard to summarize my dinning experiences in regards of any restaurants anywhere as it is in the case of Little Persia. This place is a tough one to figure out as I truly believe it suffers from a Borderline Personality Disorder.

Walking on Queensway Little Persia is easy to miss as it seems to be tucked in behind a colorless party tent. However beyond this tent lies a...more
