The food is good. Portions are big so they are worth the price for them. The service is terrible: the lady that served us was unpleasant, never smiled, had a look on her face that it was I who banned her father from Iran in 1979. We were celebrating our son's birthday and brought our own cake and asked to bring it in. They charged us for this 5 GBP for not even putting it on a plate, putting the knife and spoons in one pile to help ourselves. The service is below what you expect in a restaurant called Beluga. It would be perfect in Kebab House fast food. Don't go there on occasions. They have clients. Maybe if you are no Persian. It's my personal impression.

Mixed grill was very nice as was the rice. The side salad was utterly uninspired (literally few leaves and coarsely chopped tomatoes thrown together, no dressing).

Very opulent decor and nice location...but the state of the bathroom was totally disgusting.

Staff were pleasant and attentive enough.

From the beginning if felt like the staff didn't want our party in the restaurant. Also all the meat served was over cooked.

Food is really excellent and one of the best Persian restaurants in London. Highly recommend the Chenjeh and Koobideh. The Khoresht (Ghormeh Sabzee in particular) is really amazing.

This was a great experience. True and genuine persian food. Very nice staff.
Absolutely worth a visit. I know I will come back.
Though not a problem, but the cheap pop music was a bit too loud.

Exemplary dining experience - my favorite dishes veal kubedi, Khoresh Ghemeh Badingan and chelo -- all prepared as if eating in family kitchen. Hard to leave anything on our plates!

The place Is not cozy and has no character . It looks more of a night club than a restaurant ! Waiters not attentive and not friendly . The food was big disappointment . The sabzi was poor and the fasanjun was extremely sour and the kobeida wasn’t cooked well . The food portions were small especially the salad . The prices are too high for the quality of food and the service provided. It was not pleasant experience at all . Never again

Well presented and well organised restaurant. I cannot give a full resume of the food from only one visit but the grilled lamb was served to my taste and there was plenty of it. Pricing is competetive for this part of town

Food was v good apart from chicken kebab was a bit dry. Service was very relaxed so we had to keep asking for things which began to grate but child friendly. Lighting coukd be dimmed for more ambiance but good food. Tadick on rice could be more crisoy too..and they should be aware tgat not everyone likes radical rice.

We really enjoyed ourselves in this wonderful and dazzling restaurant. We stayed for almost 3 hours enjoying all the amazingly fresh and deliciously taste.Each course was incredible, so fresh and well balanced flavours : Definitely the best lentil soup I've ever had. And I have had many. The crispy rice and stew starter (Ghorme) was also delicious.congratulation to the chef!!
Decoration was beautiful and staff were very kind.
I definitely recommend beluga Persian grill and Bar and I will go again with my friends .

The food quality is subpar, I ordered makhsoos, the Koobideh(beef skewer) tasted terrible and the chicken was very dry and taste less. Do not recommend especially if you’ve had Persian food before as you will be very disappointed.

Service was OK, I complained about my food and the manager just removed the meat skewer and warmed up the chicken and rice and brought it back!! He did not even ask me whether this would be ok with me. More of a “customer comes last” approach!

Awful... as a Persian I refuse to eat at such a place with no soul, no ambient, no taste and bad service.
They have to work so hard to survive.
