Why we love it

There’s no place like Gilan Kitchen to feast your eyes upon mouth-watering presentations of delicious Persian dishes. Enjoy these heavenly Persian dishes while being surrounded by authentic Middle Eastern ambience, all while sampling many tasty dishes from North of Iran, which are rarely found on Persian menus in the UK. Meet the friendly staff at Gilan Kitchen, who are always open to giving you advice on what to choose – these guys really know their stuff, and are delighted to suggest dishes to suit your tastes. The people of Gilan have a reputation for being “shikamoo” which translates loosely as 'gluttonous', so you know the restaurant is in good hands!


We are absolutely obsessed with Fesen Jan Bademjan – juicy aubergine pieces in a rich sauce of walnuts and pomegranate molasses (v)
Or if you’re into something meatier try the Kebab Torsh e Gilan – Lamb: grilled pieces of lamb marinated in a sour pomegranate, walnut and garlic sauce.

Wonderful place to visit for a special meal that doesn't cost too much. Food is delicious and comes in generous portions, with great decorations and atmosphere.


Delitious food, would visit again.


Delicious and welcoming


We got our food to takeaway, it was delicious. Will be going back. On draw back was that we were told over the phone that the food would be ready in 15minutes, but it was not ready for another 30mins after this - so we ended up eating very late.


Really poor main course, plain rice with a bland stick of minced lamb covered in grease, had to leave most of it.
