I am fan of persian food

I really like the basic kebabs and rice, their basmati rice is an art. I wont back to this location because the potatoes from the appetizer was not well done.

However this time the buffet was less then stellar...only a few Persian things more geared towards traditional Mediterranean not Persian. We are very custom to eating persian food and this was very salty I felt like I was going to float out of there...order off... More

An old friend and I had lunch here today..the buffet looked good so I ordered it, my friend went for the salmon special. The salmon looked beautiful but was way too over cooked, she just packed it up to go and said she would put it on a salad. Waste. The buffet was okay but nothing was great, hummus was... More

This Mediterranean restaurant has a vast menu with diverse choices, and we've never had a bad meal here. We love the kabobs (of all varieties), dill rice and sautéed veggies. We also love their hummus and babaganoush which is served with a delicious flatbread. Prices are reasonable, and service is generally very good, even though this restaurant can get very... More

We had been to Reza's a few years back and since then, some of the reviews of the restaurant had been less than favorable. We happened to be in the Andersonville area on a beautiful Saturday afternoon, however, so decided to give Reza's another try-are we glad we did! Our service was wonderful by a very personable Kurdish young lady... More

Their weekday lunch buffets are a great deal. I especially like their kababs, perfectly cooked rice, and yummy hummus. The selections have diminished over the years but the quality remains high. Sunday brunches are most expensive--sometimes $20 plus--but on those occasions they sometimes have roasted leg of lamb stew (best thing ever!) and mimosas.

I've been here during a visit a couple of months ago , the service and food quality was really good . Don't forget to try they in house made breads and their kebabs. The only downside is the waitline to be seated.
