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.

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.

Tried the Saturday buffet with a large group of friends. Best decision of the day. Buffet offers a wide array of Persian (and some American) dishes. Needless to say, Persian was great. Service was attentive and prompt

We've beenenjoying Reza's food since its earliest incarnation as a take-out joint patronized by Middle Eastern cab drivers more than 25 years ago. We now live more than 60 miles north and still are compelled to visit at least once a month. No other Middle Eastern/Persian restaurants we've frequented compares in quality, value, and service. The food is delicious and... More

Reza's is a large restaurant with a couple of sections, as it appears to cater to larger groups and events. It has a tall, exposed ceilings and exposed brick as well, and... More

I don't live in Chicago anymore, though I am from there. Last week, I was there on a trip and able to eat at an old stomping ground, Reza's. Went with my oldest friend and his wife and kids, which is in complete contrast to how I usually dine out: on my own, or with another adult. Place was jammin'... More

Very attentive service and I felt they truly want to make it a good dining experience. Not a place to go for quiet conversation as it is very lively and loud atmosphere, not a bad thing if you are looking for that type of energy. Food is fresh and excellent and served promptly. Love the feta cheese and bread served... More
