The variety of choices on the menu is overwhelming but also exciting. A mix of Persian, American and Italian. I chose an Italian dish and my husband a Persian one, and we both enjoyed the food enormously. The only thing which surprised us was the size of the plates and quantity of food on them... read more

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

Our hotel sent us here for lunch... We thought we had come to the wrong place and waked in twice before we finally got it. This is a Italian / Persian restaurant in Lawndale ( Hawthorn Boulevard) CA. The owner explained to us that there are two kitchens and the food is all prepared from scratch. We opted for a... More

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.

Hank's Bistro, at 14406 S Hawthorne Blvd in Lawndale CA, not far from LAX, was recommended to our group of six by our hotel staff and we are so glad we went. 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
