Yas – Kensington Olympia based Persian restaurant


I go to the beauty show in Kensington Olympia every year and anyone that has been knows it is fast paced. Lively and really exciting, it is fair to say that at the end of it all nothing beats going somewhere local to eat. For me, that place is Yas restaurant.

To give you a little information, it is the only award-winning Persian restaurant in London. I believe it is for a number of reasons.

Firstly the traditional Persian menu is to die for. My latest favourite is  Sabzi which is the “customer choice”. By menu description it is;

“Long stems of fresh tarragon, mint, spring onions, radishes and walnuts”.

You wrap these around this delicious creamy Persian cheese. All of these have ingredients have great health benefits and understandably the dish has been eaten by Persians for generations.

Anyone that knows me knows I am a great lover of fresh mint with anything so this gets a huge tick in the box from me.


You can not visit Yas without finishing off your visit with some Persian tea I would recommend going with the pot rather than a cup just because it is really that yummy.

I’d love to know what your thoughts are if you have been let me know.

Still hungry after Yas? Here are a few more places to check out;
