Having lived in Malaysia for 4 years, which is a mini Iran in some sense; I am obsessed with Koobideh Kebabs. So naturally, when I moved to London I was on the lookout for the best koobideh in town. Little did I know, a gem of a persian restaurant is hidden away 15 minutes away from my house.
I visited the Goodmayes branch. The restaurant is very conveniently located, the bus stop is right outside the restaurant. Once, inside I was very impressed with interior, its bright and airy.
I was super stoked to find Koobideh on the very top of the menu and without a second look at the menu, ordered it straight away. The food came fairly quick, maximum 10 minutes of wait which I didn't mind.
And true to its Persian self, the plate was massive. The koobideh perfectly cooked and succulent. It comes with rice and salad, the rice is beautifully fragranced with saffron.
It is safe to say, it is the most authentic Persian food I have had so far in London. Priced only at 6.99 it gives you great value for your money.
I would highly recommend this restaurant to any kebab lovers. I refuse to have Persian food anywhere else. Must try!
