Persepolis is really just a little corner shop, but we think more like a mid-terrace multiple and have all the attitude of an out-of-town-hypermarket.

On this website you’ll find our blog, a selection of recipes, the Persopaedia, which is everything you wanted to know but were too afraid to ask about the shop, Peckham and Persia. You can also explore our all-new online shop, and a ‘virtual tour’ of Persepolis in our gallery. Away from this site, you’ll also find us on Twitter and Facebook.

We’re open 10.35am-9pm, seven days a week. See the Contact Us page for information on the how to reach us.

Have you got your visas ready? Our latest book Snackistan was released in September 2013. Guess the title is pretty self-explanatory, but it is a celebration of informal eating from around the Middle East and beyond. You know: meze, street food, that sort of stuff.
Veggiestan was released in October 2011, and is, as you might have guessed, a vegetarian, Middle Eastern recipe book.

It is not just aimed at vegetarians, but also at those who rather like vegetables and feel that they could be eating more of the things.
