Chelsea has a pretty bougie and expensive reputation, and places like Villa Mama don’t necessarily help. Starter portions of kaskhe bademjoon (aubergine in sauce), hummus, and mathrooba (a chicken stew) will leave you around £30 out of pocket. That said, the food at this Bahranian spot is tasty, and if you’ve got money to spend, then you could do a lot worse than sharing a couple of starters and a main between two of you here.
