    Food was amazing! We ordered the Momtaz which is a mix of lamb kebab and chicken, so you get to try both! Make sure you order the bread and a yoghurt dip from the starter menu, and ask for sumac spice for your rice :) Saffron ice cream also delightful! As was the Rose by the glass - hint of strawberry and nice and fruity! We didnt get the dates that were supposed to come with the pot of tea - that would be my only negative!

    They had 2 goldfish trapped in a tiny bowl which is fundamentally cruel, no sign of a larger tank at all and when we asked one of the waiters he seemed completely clueless and uncaring ad to their wellbeing. Also the men’s toilets needed some serious upkeep, always off-putting to see that sort of thing especially in the heart of King’s Rd.

    What a lovely restaurant! We’ve been to Diba before but the one in Wimbledon and we have always had a lovely experience, henceforth we decided to try this location for a change. My mom and I came here yesterday for New Year’s Eve dinner and it was a great choice to make 😊. Not only is the food delicious but the service is amazing! I had booked just the day before but I do believe walk ins are accepted. We were kindly greeted and our waiter who was a male; I unfortunately didn’t ask his name but he was an absolute delight to be attended by. The prices are quite good considering the restaurants location, £17.50 I believe for the tasty joojeh kabab 😍, which I definitely recommend! We also recommend the naan bread and hummus which is a lovely starter! Thank you Diba for a lovely experience, will be definitely coming here again. P.S. this restaurant is wheelchair accessible so I definitely recommend for those with accessibility issues and are worried the entrance will be a problem.

    The quality of food was good. However the plates were too full with salad. Also the wine glasses didn’t seem to be wine glasses at all.

    We dined at the newly opened Persian restaurant on King’s Road and perhaps it was just a bad night but the Thadig was terrible, the rice was chewy and hard to eat (we’ve told both girls serving us - and they replied it was normal - and I was dining with a Persian friend so he knows how a Thadig should be). The joojeh was good but the Koobide was a bit weird. Perhaps they still need to settle but this was quite a bad experience for us. Notwithstanding the complain about the rice it was well left on the final bill. Wouldn’t go back.

    This was disappointing and not up to the standard of other Persian restaurants in London, plus its far more expensive. Food was lacking good flavours and they tried to make up for it with huge portions of rice. Olives, garlic sauce and chilli sauce were presented with no bread and the waiter suggested dipping the olives in the sauces! They have a tandoor for the bread but unlike ither Persian restaurante they don't use it dureing service (if aat all?). The service is disorganised and inattentive.

    Food was good. Nice spot in the neighborhood. Straightforward. Staff was not particularly warm and it impacted the meal experience.

    We tried this new Persian restaurant in our neighbourhood and were very much pleased. The meat was tasty for the kababs and the rice well perfumed. We will come back!
