Nadia’s food is absolutely delicious! From the moment I made contact with Nadia, she was helpful, kind and very knowledgeable. I’ve had catering from her on two occasions now and certain to have her make some more marvellous meals in the future. I highly recommend her.

Persian Promise expertly helped us with my baby shower, for which we had planned to have a finger food reception. From the first time I spoke with Nadia I knew that everything would be in good hands as she planned ahead for the preparations so meticulously, from the variety of food options to the required tableware and the serving time. Nadia and Adrian were both super professional, nice and friendly and they provided delicious and beautifully presented items for our event. Although they had to drive a long way to London, they arrived well in advance and took care of everything amazingly and left nothing for us to worry about.

We have on several occasions been lucky enough to enjoy the delicious dishes created by Persian Promise. It's just so refreshing to experience all the different flavours. We loved the subtle taste of the saffron rice and delightful spices in the chicken dishes. Nadia is a wonderful chief and we will certainly be ordering again. Thank you for the great service too.

I was recently looking for a caterer for my fathers wake. It was important for me to find a traditional and Authentic Persian caterer who would live up to the high standards that my father would have.

Despite being so close to London it was difficult to find a genuine Persian caterer who would also travel to us. I was incredibly fortunate to have found Nadia who provided us with some excellent menu options worthy of my grandmothers kitchen in Iran. It was really important to me to be able to provide my friends and family with the food that would have been served had my Dad passed away in his home country and also what I know he would also have chosen to eat himself. Nadia was not only able to do this for me but the standard of her cooking also impressed the elder members of the family who have extremely high standards when it comes to Iranian cooking! I received positive comments about the food both on the day and also in messages afterwards, which was exactly what I wanted in order to honour my father.

I cannot thank Nadia enough.

In November, I wanted something different for a lunch party at home. By great good fortune, we found Nadia, of Persian Promise, who prepared a wonderful buffet lunch for us for an occasion when a group of friends were visiting. Nadia created a varied and delicious menu of authentic Persian dishes, full of delicate flavours, beautifully prepared, decorated and presented so professionally. Nadia was really helpful with creating a menu for our lunch, and prepared most generous dishes for us

Communication was excellent and delivery was exactly on time. We were so pleased with our lunch and highly recommend Nadia as a skilful, creative, capable and trustworthy chef.

Thank you, Nadia and Adrian!
