Ali Siavoshi is the British based designer behind the Hafez décor. Born in Iran, Siahvoshi has a unique approach to contemporary design using recycled everyday objects, from table legs to cutlery. Siahvoshi specialises in light fixtures that exemplify the beauty of utilising discarded objects for new purposes.
Hafez Restaurant is long established and is one of London's first authentic Persian Restaurants.
Hafez was opened in 1983 by food lovers Nusrat and Jessie Tadjiky who were joined in 1986 by Head Chef Farshid Ziafat.
Together with a dedicated team of staff, their experience and passion for Persian cuisine has built the reputation for quality and excellence that Hafez is known for today - not only as a restaurant but as a leader in outside event catering.
In 2011 Hafez remains a family business co-owned by Farshid, brother-in-law Mehdi and sister Fariba.
