Caspian Restaurant

Caspian Restaurant is a Persian establishment in South London. The decor is elegant with a refined Egyptian/Middle Eastern influence.

The Chicken Shish shown below was delicately spiced with saffron. However, the saffron flavour was mild. The chicken on the other hand was nice and moist.


The protagonist displayed in the picture below is the Kabab Koobideh, two skewers of lamb mince with saffron rice. The skewers were succulent and did contain flavour, but were very mild. The meat required a boost in spice. The saffron rice was dead in piquancy, but the tiny jar protruding from the middle of the plate contained an elixir that phoenixed the dish to regeneration.


There are far better Persian alternatives, however, for South London, Caspian is one of the better options.IMG_7913
