Persian
Chalk Farm’s Haverstock Hill provides plenty of choice for the casual London diner, however few of its restaurants are as strikingly different as Tandis. Occupying a site formerly held by a trendy bar, Tandis retains the chilled, funky vibe and cool décor but has added excellent Persian food and friendly waiter service. Exposed brick walls and a mirrored bar, waterfall style chandeliers and reclamation style accessories make up the fashionable interior, suiting both the locals of rich Primrose Hill and grungy Camden, both within easy distance. Tandis’ Persian cuisine has also enthralled visitors looking for something totally different. Warm, pungent spices add subtle flavour to stews and kebabs with many vegetarian options available. Don’t miss the faloodeh, a delicious Persian sorbet.

Lovely service (on a quiet Monday evening) and good food - large portions of quality ingredients but a bit under-seasoned for our taste. Fair value, also on drinks.

Good restaurant. However, asked twice for sauce to go with our meals and we were forgotten about.

Nice choice of things on the menu. Restaurant quiet, so good for conversation. Service just right. Some of the food a little bit mushy, could do with a bit more texture.

Siamo stati a cena in tre in questo ristorante. La cucina è assolutamente da provare, con piatti davvero squisiti e con un ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo!

We have visited Tandis a few times and always enjoy coming here. The welcome, food and service are very good. Always a good choice of authentic Iranian food, modern surroundings and never hurried.

the service staff was excellent to a 13guest party, excellent persian chef, smart location, venue nicely decorated. good for special occasion, business, or date. price a bit high but portions are big therefore a good choice, guest will not leave hungry as other fine dining serves tiny portions.
will come back as usual.compliments for the service.

What a find! A last minute search to find a good Persian restaurant to celebrate our anniversary led us to this wonderful restaurant. The ambiance was lovely and intimate and the staff, despite the restaurant being full, we’re very attentive. With an onion allergy eating out can be difficult and dull, however, I had the chicken legs in pomegranate and walnut stew and the meat just fell off the bone. So good to have something full of flavour but without onion in the stock. Would highly recommend but do book as because it’s so good it’s very popular.

The service was very good, but the food a little disappointing. Whilst it was tasty, it didn't seem to have much imagination - lamb stew with a very large plate of white rice. There didn't seem to be much in the way of vegetables in the stew, nor did I notice options for vegetables on the side.

The food was cooked very well and served promptly.
Service was friendly - no feeling of being rushed.
One point - the dining room was a little too warm. But overall a good experience.

The starters were decent but the mains were pretty bad. The fish was dry, chewy and burnt. The waiter did not accept it and said its how its supposed to be.

There are some really nice Iranian restaurants in this area but I think this one does the best food. It's a little bit more expensive than others but overall great.

I'm afraid this meal was the worst I've had for a long time. The fillet of bass was dry and practically inedible and was accompanied by a mountain of nicely cooked but dry rice. There was no flavour to the fish and no sauce to add some moisture. We did ask the waiter to inform the chef. The starter was also odd: labelled a soufflé it was more like a lukewarm Spanish omelette. I've had good meals here in the past. What has gone wrong?

Very nice food and excellent service. Portion size of meat items could have been slightly larger (only one chicken skewer)
