We were a sports team on a budget. We gave them what we wanted to pay [including tip] and they came up with a fantastic meal that included fresh vegetables, kebabs and a meat/pasta [like a bolognaise] dish, with drinks. Great for a pre-game meal and good to get fresh vegetables when the usual diet on trips is fried and... More

The owner explained to us that there are two kitchens and the food is all prepared from scratch. We opted for a... More

Hanks Bistro restaurant was definitely one of the highlights of our US trip. We were able to cherish and end our trip at a high note. The food was excellent and was served readil, upon our request. The ambiance was amazing and the owners put in a lot of effort to make it look shick. The service was fantastic. Jameel... More

Where else can you get traditional Persian food along side with Italian? Great people, very friendly, and will help you in selecting if you are a Persian food novice. Delicious, affordable,and huge servings

It was closing time when we called them to go in. They said to come anyway. They were gracious and pleasant . The food was emormous portions at low prices. Amazing! We were amazed! It is in a shopping center and parking is easy.

The owner, Reza, and his staff are welcoming, warm-hearted people whose sole purpose is to make you feel welcome and feed you well. We all had Italian dishes... More

Have been a customer for years and having my Daughter's birthday gatherings there. I have been recommending them to everyone I know. This year after my party of eight is there they inform me that they will not sell me 2 XL pizzas and they will only accept one small $10 personal pizza for each in my party. I tell... More

Was recommended by hotel and did not disappoint. Good Italian menu and great Persian food. Ordered kabobs. Very tender meat, not over flavored. Under $20 with tip for locally owned great food. Highly recommend.

I was very excited to find this good Persian restaurant in the South Bay -- especially when I found out they deliver. The restaurant also serves Italian dishes, but I can't really comment on those since I only ever order from the Persian menu. The chicken barg is very tender and flavorful, as is the beef kubideh (especially when paired... More
