Our Story

Nutshell is a Michelin Plate awarded Modern Iranian restaurant at the heart of Covent Garden. The food at Nutshell is a reflection of the cosmopolitan nature of the city and its ethos. Our food and drinks menus focus on sustainability with an abundance of delicious vegetarian and vegan dishes and an emphasis on ethically sourced British produce and Iranian commodities.

Iran is blessed with an abundance of spices, herbs, fruits and nuts that illuminate fragrant dishes across the country. Centuries of trade at the heart of the Silk Road have influenced a wild diversity of regional dishes, from the floral north to the spicy south. It is the secrets of Iranian cuisine, the dishes cooked in too few restaurants but almost every home, that Nutshell’s owners, Mohammad and Marwa, want to share with London’s diners.
