New Mediterranean restaurant opens in Bramley – opening day takings donated to NHS

Congratulations to Rakesh and Nasser Sarvjahani on today’s opening of Bramley’s newest restaurant Persepolis, writes Simon Cullingworth.

Serving Mediterranean food on Town Street, it will be a welcome addition to West Leeds.

All takings from opening day are being generously donated to the NHS.

During the pandemic there has been so much uncertainty surrounding the future of local businesses and beyond, but this hasn’t dampened the spirits or determination of these two local businessmen.

Rakesh and Nasser will be familiar to local residents who visit the Wine Shop and Xerxes barbers on Town Street, but now they’ve branched out together in a new venture which offers Bramley residents a new restaurant and takeaway.

They are serving a variety of Turkish, Persian and Greek food, all cooked fresh to order offering an alternative to other local cuisines.

At present they are only able to offer take away service but look forward to the day when they will be able to open the fully licensed restaurant.

The opening ribbon was cut by Bramley & Stanningley councillor Kevin RItchie.


  1. I bet they’d appreciate you publishing some contact details so we can support them in this incredibly brave venture!
