We eat at Raffi's several times a year. It is a great place for family dining as well as date night. All of the food is superb - we have never had a bad meal there. The service is always prompt and attentive. Most of their seating is covered/outdoor, but they do have an inside area for the 6 days... More

Raffi's place is one of the best Persian restaurants I have ever been to with the highest quality of food and a great service. It's almost always very busy and so many people from other states stop by to dine in once they are in LA area. Although it is a bit pricey but compared to other classy Persian restaurant... More

My husband and I dined at Raffi's Place on June 14, 2014, with friends. The service was friendly and efficient. Be advised that they do not take reservations for parties under 10, and after about 6:30 p.m., it gets very crowded. We dined at 6 p.m. and it was pretty full but we were seated instantly. We shared the hummus... More

We have been coming here for years. Very crowded on weekends, so come on a weekday. We always order the tabouli, the chicken barg kabob (boneless chicken breast), and the koobideh/luleh kabob (ground beef). Large portions.

Eggplant dish. It was a tasty dish, but was served cold. I think it would have been better if it was served at room temperature. Our second dish was Tadig. It was Ok for the price. Their stews didn’t have the depth of flavor you taste in good stews. Soltani Kabob was a mix bag. Their Koobideh Kabob was the... More

This is reputedly the best Iranian restaurant in Los Angeles. They don't take reservations so you need to get there early and put your name down. Waiting time is on average 30 minutes but you can kill time by looking around the shops nearby. This place is so popular that they have seating both inside and outside where they have... More

Some of the best Persian food in Los Angeles. I had the lamb shank with baghali pollo. The lamb was tender, well-cooked, but not greasy at all. The rice was perfect. On the next visit I had the boneless chicken kabob (luleh). It was the best I have ever had. I wish I could say the same about the abulu... More
