Food: Alounak Click for more info

Alounak is a fantastic Persian restaurant situated in Bayswater, serving up a pretty straightforward menu made up of starters and kebabs. But what place lacks in choice it more than makes up in quality with some of the tastiest food and generous portions I've come across.

Service was adequate and prompt, except when it came to chucking us out which was appreciated. The place, although clean, is small and so can get a little crowded at times - something possibly a pain for larger parties - but managed to leave a more intimate, close and cosy feel anyway.

And at around 15 quid a head (without drinks) it was pretty much a bargain. Recommended.
