Tandis reviews

By David T.

Rather than eat across the road at the pub -The Hill-we opted to be advernturous and given the good reviews we'd try this out for my birthday. Attractive restaurant but the food was very disappointing. Super strong lime flavoured 'stew lacking flavour other than overpowering lime taste. My main was the worst so I suggested sharing with the other six members of the party. All in all six main courses only one of which was vaguely palateable. Over priced and not very nice is the only way I can describe it. THE most disappointing restaurant experience of the last two years this left a bad taste in my mouth in more ways than one. If you must eat here try the kebabs because the rest (which we opted for) was almost meatless 'soupy' stew with a toilet cleaner intensity of lemon/lime.

Our family group of four went to this restaurant over the Christmas period. We were really impressed by the politeness of the staff and the cleanliness of the place. The interior design is quite modern but still manages to be atmospheric, so that is another plus. We had aubergine with eggs (Mirza Ghassemi) and stew with spinach and prunes (Khoresht-e Esfenaj-o Aloo). They were all delicious and the price was very reasonable. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

First class restaurant.

Great cocktails, tasty starters and delicious stews ( Ghormeh Sabzi and Khoresh Bademjaan served with steamed rice and topped with saffron).

Very friendly service and nice and clean place.Will be back soon as wife can,t stay away from Aubergine stew!

By Mike G.

What a great place! I am so happy to have such a decent restaurant close to me. They have home made bread which is the nicest I have had in London, They have good selection of hot and cold starters from which we had aasheh reshteh,masto moosir, eshkaneh & sabzi for £10.The home made yoghurt was lovely and the kebabs were so delicious especially as they were served with big portions of steamed rice with saffron on top! Nicest food we had in months.

Tandis offers staples of Iranian cuisine to one of London’s most affluent neighbourhoods, and doesn't demand they break the bank.

The Venue
Tandis is sleek enough to belong in NW3 without being over the top. Dark wooden furniture abounds, modern chandeliers drip from the ceiling near the entrance and an alcove lined with cushioned black leather creates a cosy, romantic seating place. The main dining area is through an archway at the back, and a scattering of tables outside suggests alfresco dining is possible in warmer weather.

The Atmosphere
Groups of friends young and old, seemingly locals, start to arrive at around 8pm on a Friday. Couples sit by the windows at the front of the restaurant while the more boisterous congregations are sensibly put at the back.

The Food
Salad olivieh, a potato salad with egg, chicken and chopped gherkin has been turned into a Russian salad by adding peas and carrots, which have overtaken the zingy flavour of pickled gherkin making it a little blander than usual. Kashk-e bademjan, a dish of mashed aubergine, olive oil and walnuts is garlicky and at its best when scooped up with the warm seeded flatbread you're provided with.

As with most Iranian restaurants the portions are huge, with the mains being almost big enough for two people to share. Fesenjan, a rich stew of chicken in a walnut and pomegranate sauce combines nutty earthiness with a hint of sweetness; the marinated baby chicken on skewers is lemony and herby. Both these dishes come with mountains of saffron rice. The skewer of chicken breast pieces that forms part of the mixed kebab lacks flavour and requires heaps of salt and citrussy somagh to be poured over it, however the minced lamb skewer fares better, and the naan bread the kebabs are wrapped up in is delicious, having absorbed the juices from the meat.

For dessert, creamy saffron and rose water ice creams with chopped pistachios are presented in large glass cups; the falloodeh, which can only be described as frozen vermicelli with sugar and rosewater is a refreshing end to the meal. As with the mains, the servings are so generous that teeth are chattering by the time pudding is over.

The Drink
There is a decent selection of wines on offer, however the £12.95 house red – a Sicilian Shiraz no less - is little better than cheap plonk. Doogh, a salty yoghurt drink with mint is also on the menu, as well as Persian tea and Turkish coffee.

The Last Word
At roughly £30 a head for three courses with bread and wine Tandis offers great value for the area. However, while most of the dishes are prepared to a good standard this is not the best Iranian you’ll find in London.
