My friend and I went to this dinner with some experience of secret kitchens but no experience of this particular event. And we were blown away by the food, which was utterly delicious, the care that had been taken over every aspect, the good sense of fun so it wasn't a solemn appreciation of Persian food but a genuinely interesting occasion and the lovely small tables that created an intimate atmosphere more like a an interesting dinner party than a restaurant or somewhere you feel is too unfamiliar. I will definitely book again and thoroughly recommend it - the food was something really special.

So much better than a restaurant

This was my second Secret Kitchen and it will definitely not be my last. They are so much fun. The food is always good, you can count on Anna to choose a good cook with good recipes and it is so enjoyable to sit round small tables and chat with people you've just met. I especially like that there are several small tables rather than one big one as this makes conversation easier. Highly recommended.

Very special evening

This is the second super club we have been to at Anna's house. The first one was so good we emailed her on the way home to secure a place on the Persian night. This one was equally as amazing. It was a nice mixture of excellent fresh food, great information about the history/ culture of the food and great hosting. Its great to be able to bring your own wine from a few that Anna recommends as this is a good way to learn more about pairing food with wine. We will be back for sure.
