Like other travelers we found this restaurant off TAdvisor and went by the high ratings. We go out to middle eastern food a lot in Michigan so our standards are very high. We enjoyed the Hummus but the chicken Kabob was a little dry, and the Mahi Mahi Kabob was good but not as good as we have had back... More

Normally I let mediocre restaurants slide. But given the consistent 5-star reviews, I felt I had to comment. Honestly, I'm flummoxed by all of the high praise. We were in the neighborhood and given its high Yelp rating, we decided to check it out. We ordered the lamb and boneless chicken kabobs + a Greek salad. Both the lamb and... More

I've been going here for years and never get enough of their food. Kabobs are juicy and full of flavor, rice dishes are amazing, especially the Cherry rice! Come hungry, portions are HUGE. The ambiance is fun and casual, service friendly and efficient.

We have been going to Raffi's for many, many years. If anything, it's only improved, especially because they no longer allow smoking on their patio and it's a much more family friendly atmostphere, now. Sometimes you wait a bit for the food, but it's always worth it. They have the best kabobs out there!

I've been here many times and have never been disappointed. The service is great, the food is yummy and you can't go wrong here. Go back over and over and try new stuff. My favorite is the Barg Beef kabob. Yum!

This was the best Persian food I've ever had in US. It is a lot of food and you can share one food for two persons.

Amazing persian food. Speedy service. Lovely environment. Outside but covered and also indoor option. Very clean. I literally don't want to go anywhere else for Persian food. Raffi's is truly the best.
