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.

Asked for bread to be included, and waiter rudely refused. Brought our mains out when we were still eating the starter, so we asked them to hold on. A few minutes later they when we were still busy with the starter, they brought them again...more
