When it comes to Persian restaurants in London, there's a lot of choice. But Sadaf is one of our favourites. This airy spot behind High Street Kensington serves some great lamb chops, addictive taftoon bread, and some of the juiciest koobideh around. It's perfect for a mid-week dinner catch-up over a chicken biryani and the hefty portions mean you almost always end up getting some to takeaway - which is a plus in our books.
