Best "Persian in San fernando Valley"

If you blink you will miss its storefront off of broadway as there is no real signage - enter from the back alley where the friendly Valets will park you. Then enter through a back alley corridor into a butcher paper liner white table cloth al fresco dining area. Very cool as it feels like you... read more

They say that more Armenians live in Glendale, CA than in Armenia! As such Glendale houses the best Middle Eastern restaurants around & Raffi's is in my opinion one of the top 10. Get ready for large family-style portions of whatever you crave from their menu. My fav are the lamb kabobs!

Arrived 20 minutes before closing and was gracefully accommodated (after being turned away from Shiraz restaurant down the street) on a Thursday evening with no wait - place was busy with customers. Very enjoyable outdoor dining. Super service from friendly staff. We shared a Chicken Koobideh plate which was large enough for the two of us as a late in... More

The food was average and it's a little bit pricey. Make sure that Anything they put on the table you know if they have charged you or not because they will. I would only recommend to double check the receipt.

Last time I was at Raffi's we celebrated a retirement party. The food was great employees were helpful and friendly. Love the menu, however feel like it is overpriced and I can't afford to go there as often as I would like.

Came here with friends based on Concierge referral from Hilton hotel. Wonderful meal. Not over salted. Allowed Shirazi salad instead of Bazmati rice with no up charge. Lamb & salmon sishkabab excellent. Glad we came.

I only wish this place was closer. There is always a long wait so if you can do make reservations. The food is always awesome and fresh and the ambiance is very nice. Perfect for California. You won't be able to tell if you're inside or outside.

I now live in Hawaii, and used to live in SoCal for 40 years. Persian food is one of my favorites, but not common in Hawaii, and when I visit SoCal, I have to go to at least one or two places for my fix. This was my first visit to Raffi's and it was instant love! Will be coming... More

We had a large family gathering and this was my first time at Raffi's. Despite our large group the service was fast and friendly. The food was great. Koubideh(ground beef) was tasty but a tad over cooked and dry. The barg (beef filet) was absolutely great. Tender, moist and full flavor. The tea was great as well. Overall a wonderful... More
