Behesht Persian Cuisine

leftovers for lunch yesterday
We went to Beshest, Beshet, Behest, Persian restaurant on Harlow road, Persian restaurant on Harrow road A HA!! Behesht for dinner. We were greeted by this man making naan bread in this giant what chu ma call it!

We started with some hummus, chicken salad, and aubergine starters. Yuuuuuum!!
I don't think they call it chicken salad but it was a cross between coleslaw and chicken salad.
giant pieces of naan bread. It was bigger than yo face!
We ordered the mix grill for 5 2. It was HUGE!!!!!!!
There was chicken x 2, baby lamb, and kefta.
I added a little thing of butter and some grilled tomatoes to the rice. It was fabulous :-D
