About us

hello... it's nice to meet you

Our family is at the heart of our company

As a family, food has always played a big role in our lives. In 2019 we came together to create a company that was a fusion of our passion for food and the industry skills we had between us.

With a drive to make mealtimes healthier and allow Persian food to be accessible to as many homes as possible, we created Modern Persian Kitchen, a Persian food service delivering nationwide.

Our Food

As a family we are so proud of our heritage, but we're also a little adventurous. This means that some of our food may not be the traditional Persian dishes you've tried before, but instead we've put our own spin on them over the generations. As a result, we've created a kitchen that brings together Shary’s experience as an award-winning chef, the delicious flavours and heart of Persian food, and our much loved family recipes.

Your families wellbeing is at the core of what we do

We’ve developed a menu that ensures our food is not only delicious, but makes meal times healthier.

Shary has used his experience in the healthy food market to develop a menu that not only tastes great, but avoids some of the traditional cooking methods, minimising the use of frying fats and gluten, to create a more balanced meal without compromising on flavour. What’s more, most of our dishes are dairy free, gluten free, low in fat, salts and refined sugar.
