Went in a big group for my friend's birthday where we were given the Snackistan menu (which changes every day). Unfortunately I am allergic to all nuts and pulses, which featured pretty heavily on the menu that day! Sally Butcher was incredible about it and...More

I organised our work Christmas party at Persepolis and it was fantastic! The owner- Sally- was incredibly helpful. She promised us a vegetarian feast and she really delivered. The portions were large, tasty and inventive. Some of the more carnivorous staff members were skeptical about...More

Wonderful food and an absolutely amazing experience. I actually happened to meet Sally and Jamie on one of their rare days off away from Persepolis. Over a nice meal and a few drinks we talked about a number of different things including food, family, politics,...More

Our party of 10 were looked after superbly. Plate of gorgeous food followed plate of gorgeous food. Both the food and the staff were all excellent. Cannot recommend highly enough. And Sally is a superstar. A memorable evening for all the right reasons.
