Many starters and main courses, but no desserts, are listed on the Soltan Restaurants website. Putney's Soltan Restaurant offers Londoners a taste of Persian (Iranian) cuisine. The food of Iran has yet to gain widespread popularity in Europe, but could appeal to British diners wanting a new culinary experience, or Iranians in London who need a taste of home. Persian food often features basmati rice, saffron, and meat (particularly lamb and chicken) although the Soltan Restaurant also offers a handful of vegetarian meals, and one fish dish. All meat served is Halal, therefore Muslim customers can dine without worry. Speciality Persian breads are also offered. The atmosphere of the Soltan Restaurant appears to be fairly relaxed: as an offer, this weekend (for example), the restaurant encourages diners to bring their own drinks if they so desire, with no corkage charge.
