Farhad Jamali and his wife Leila have opened The Art of Persia on School Lane, Standish, offering a Middle Eastern menu.

They have served more familiar takeaway food at the Silver Crown on Pole Street for years. Now they wish to bring flavours of their Iranian homeland to Standish. Customers must order the day before they want the food so freshness is guaranteed. Most dishes on the menu will focus on rice with an accompanying stew, made from lamb, chicken, prawn, fish and beef. Farhad said: “People are excited and looking forward to us opening up this kind of cuisine for them. Obviously with us slow cooking it has to pre-ordered but that’s the beauty of it.”
