ACTON | W3
Persian Kebab seems to be a random sighting, stuck behind an estate agents just a short walk from East Acton station. But this takeaway spot serves authentic Persian cuisine, from stews and specials, to seasoned kebab meats, made and served by a couple of very charming Persian men, so no problems there.
Their lunch deal (Mon - Fri 12pm -5pm) offers lamb for £7.50, or chicken for £8, with rice or naan, plus a salad and a drink, all at a really decent price. I opted for rice, and returned to spend a few more pennies on some naan too, purely for research purposes, of course. The chicken was juicy and boldly flavoured, and the large and thin homemade bread was light and fluffy. I'm very glad I didn't pass it up. I left inundated with flyers and words from happy locals who boasted of their speedy and polite service.
Note: cash only, and only one small table for two outside.
