Diners in East Sheen don’t have to book a holiday to find delicious Persian delights when they have Namo Persian Kitchen on their doorstep. Based on Upper Richmond Road, the eatery hasn’t just become popular due to its location. Their hearty traditional dishes and warm hospitality have earned them a worthy reputation amongst foodies and expats as one of the best traditional Persian restaurants in London.
East Sheen may be a little off the beaten path when it comes to dining out in London, but the suburb offers many local amenities for families and outdoorsy types that want to enjoy a day out. Covering more than 950 hectares, the impressive Richmond Park is perfect for an afternoon stroll or birdwatching before meal at Namo. The restaurant is also just a short walk from Mortlake train station.
Like the best Persian restaurants, Namo is made for anyone that likes to dine out in London with friends and family. The charming eatery is cosy and unassuming, featuring rustic, weathered wood dining furniture and exposed brick walls. There’s also plenty of room for all the kids, while couples will find many cosy corners inside and outside.
Namo might be famed for its grills, but their menu has a vast range of meat-free dishes that will please any veggie. Fragrant grilled veg with saffron rice, dolmeh and halloumi are just some of the delights they can tuck into. Alternatively, for something meaty, their Olivier chicken salad, lamb steak skewers and Fesenjan duck stew should do nicely.
From casual get-togethers with the family to date nights, Namo Persian Kitchen is sure to be a new favourite. Any occasion will be even more of a treat for tastecard members who can look forward to exclusive restaurant savings when they call to book ahead and present their cards upon arrival. It’s a good chance to treat themselves to a mixed grill or extra starters to share with bread.
