Great buffet

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

Outstanding experience. Nice restaurant, delicious grilled middle eastern food that I really loved. The service is very good. I liked the desserts too. An advice if you went there to try their black tea; really good!

Top. Notch. Food. That deserves a line unto itself. Reza's is on a corner intersection, ideally located across from a Starbucks. I walked in, and was seated about in the middle of the restaurant, between the front window and the buffet. I opted for the falafel as an appetizer (my first and now definitely not my last time of having... More
