We went for a business meeting. The dining room is lovely. Although the restaurant was not very busy, for lunch, our service was somewhat inattentve. I was disappointed in my kabobs. The chicken was severely overcooked and dry. The rice was bland. Others in my group were satisfied with their meals. Portions were plentyful. Prices are very affordable and appropriate.

I have driven past this restaurant for years and never knew what a treasure was hidden inside. The atmosphere is very nice and on the "fancy" side. Somewhere you would take an important client or sweetheart. I cannot speak to the authenticity of the food, but plenty of others already have done that. I can speak to the quality of... More

A pleasant surprise. We had not planned on eating here but when we found it, we loved it. The food is authentic Persian/Iranian, which is a very healthy cuisine. The kabobs were well prepared, the rice and stews authentic, and the Persian ice cream just right. The prices were reasonable. The service was not exceptional but quite good.

We loved eating at this restaurant. The food was excellent and it is Halal. The kababs were cooked well and went with the Saffron rice. It is one of the best Iranian food we had compare to the Iranian restaurants in Middle East.

I spent three years in Iran in the late seventies just prior to the revolution and I can attest to the fact that this is authentic Persian cuisine. Back in Tehran I used to have plain koobideh over a bed of saffron rice for lunch every day and I still love it but I'm also a big fan of barg,... More

We were there on a vacation and had a craving for Middle Eastern food. Found the place easily. the meal started off with a flat bread and the best dip of feta and bunch of herbs including mint and basil. I had the fish and it was cooked to perfection.

The meal begins with a plate of flate breads,fresh mint and feta! Most of us had either lamb kabobs or the lamb filet, or trout, meat was tender and cooked to order, also on the plate was a grilled tomato, basmati saffron rice topped white rice. The Persian tea was wonderful and a nice addition to the meal.

Fans of Persian food are used to posh ambience afforded by such restaurants. This is true at least in California. We've never been to Iran, and in our travels have visited middle eastern places in Amsterdam, Paris, and Sao Paolo but they are usually of Lebanese or Turkish origin. These tend to be more modest in the furnishing department, while... More

The Adana Kabob is very good - a spiced up version of the standard koobideh (ground beef). Always good service. Although I have not tried it, I have heard from several sources that the lamb shank dishes are very good. Very good selection of dishes. Overall a great change of pace from the standard chain food fare.
