We had the tasting menu; a thing of total beauty. An exciting trip!! And super good value, which takes you from starters and a soft drink via the equivalent of a main course, thence all the way through to desserts and coffee. Unhurried meal with excellent and friendly service from the excellent and friendly Sally Butcher.

We were very disappointed eating Iranian restaurant at Persepolis in Peckham. It was such a good review that we decided to go there. However, the taste was bland, most were chopped vegetables salad style, small portion and over charged, the waitress was friendly though.

This place is brilliant. Incredibly tasty, fresh Persian style vegetarian food in a cosy space. AND it's BYOB. The service is attentive and friendly and the prices are very affordable. Get the halloumi with honey and sesame - you won't regret it.

Last night, we were in Dulwich and looking for somewhere unusual to eat. We spotted this place and although it was virtually booked up, Sally found us a spot. We went for the sharing meal for 2 at £40 that includes two drinks. It is difficult to exaggerate the amazingness of Persepolis, exotic, different, fresh, tasty food and vegetarian too!... More

This place is amazing. Crowded, you're elbow to elbow with your neighbours, and I recommend booking for dinner, but totally worth it. The food is just so fresh and divine tasting. Good options for veggies/vegans. Service is friendly, the shop is quirky and great for buying ingredients to try some of the recipes out yourself.

As soon as you walk in you are made to feel welcome, at the back is an amazing little cafe. Comfy seating and a menu with a variety of amazing vegetarian food. The food is all cooked fresh and tasted as good as it looked. We shared a couple of dishes which was ample and you came away pleasantly full.... More

I was made very welcome in Persepolis, which is filled to the brim with scrumptious food from the Eastern Mediterranean and Persia, and shares space with a relaxed cafe where everything is cooked for you on the spot. My eggs with plantain was delicious, and as I was in a hurry I was thoughtfully provided with a take-away dish for... More
