We ate here on a Tuesday evening and the restaurant was pretty empty. Food was great, as was the service, with the lovely waitress bringing us soups to try and ensuring that we enjoyed our evening. Portions are huge so be careful not to over order! Great value too.

We were ate at Reza's on a warm Sunday evening in August. The restaurant was 1/2 full with more customers entering as we ate. The restaurant is large and can easily accommodate large groups. While we dined there were at least three large families enjoying a nice Sunday dinner. It appeared that many were locals that were coming for the... More

The food here is great. Beef and chicken kabobs, green rice. An eggplant-based dip we had instead of hummus was fantastic. The dessert, which was sort of a cross between a churro and a sopapilla, was one of the best I've ever had. The restaurant itself is large with a really interesting layout with bathroom downstairs and additional stairs winding... More

I paid almost 25 dollars (which they included tip) for the buffet for Sunday dinner. I should have checked it as there weren't many vegetarian options but plenty of meat dishes. What I ate tasted good but there weren't a lot of protein choices for me. Next time I would order from the menu instead.

My uncle took me to this restaurant. Loved the food..I could eat and eat.. Chicken and green rice were great. If I am back in Chicago, I will be back for another lunch or dinner.

Rezas, located North Clark Street, is one of Chicago’s finest Persian restaurants. Offering daily specials and chef specials, we started with a flavourful baba ganooj appetizer dressed with parsley, radish and feta on the side; generous servings of fresh baked flat bread were served as well. Soup followed, a rich chicken barley broth subtly flavoured. Our entrees included roasted quail,... More

Good food, average ambiance, convenient hours buffet. I went there Sunday late afternoon close to 3PM. Lamb sinkh Kobob and lamb curry was excellent. Choice of Rice is great **** be careful with your bill, they include the tip and do not show it itemized, you may end up paying tip twice****

Was there for a family birthday with a large party. They took care of us from start to finish. Food was great and being right on lively Clark St. adds to the experience... will need to go back soon.
