SimurghSimurgh has all the ingredients for a fun night out with friends - good food, good wine and belly dancers. Who could ask for anything more? Located in Covent Garden on Garrick Street, Simurgh is a Persian/Iranian restaurant which is ideal for work parties and birthdays, and the dining room - with exposed brick walls, Mediterranean blue accents and Persian carpets - has a laid-back and friendly atmosphere. The chefs at Simurgh are inspired by centuries-old Persian recipes with a contemporary twist, and we love the duck and walnut stew cooked in a thick pomegranate and walnut sauce with cinnamon and saffron, and the lamb and lime curry cooked with yellow lentils and aubergine in a saffron and tomato sauce.
