Great Persian Food!

Stopped in for lunch, been here before and have been happy each time! Service is above average and the food is very good. Always served hot and timely! Buffet looked good, but still ordered off the menu. Would highly recommend!!

Was an average visit during the week for an early dinner. Nothing remarkable but the bill. We went as a party of four and tried several different items. The houmas was nothing special and we wanted there lamb, what Mediterranean restaurants are know for, and there was none. The seafood was average too. There are better places.

We were intrigued to try Persian food. They have outside seating which we loved so we could people watch. The waitress was wonderful. The food was fresh and abundant. Enjoyed the food and the vibe.

I actually went To Reza's for the first time many years ago, however, have been eating there more recenlty. At work, we have food delivered to our office. If ordering off the menu, the portions are quite large and there are as many veggie options as there are meat options. Can't make up your mind? They have small and large... More

At the recommendation of a Persian, we ventured there & are glad we did. While the evening buffet looked good, we decided the family option #2 to focus on specific choices. The portions are mammoth sized and nicely prepared. The wine list was shallow and a wee bit pricey. The place was on the shabby side; yet, clean. Even at... More

Some Iranian friends recommended this place and took us there for dinner. My goodness, what a treat. Each of us ordered different kabobs. The beef koubideh was amazing. Portions are more than generous and the meal includes soup and rice. Very reasonably priced.

We always go out our way to stop here to eat and it never disappoints! A favorite of both my husband and mine! Our kids found things they liked too.

Any time I am in Chicago, I have to go to Reza's. It's a bit of a hike from the main shopping strip (Mag Mile), but by far the best Persian/Mediteranean restaurant I have eaten at. Hummus, persian bread, Reza's potatoes, Chicken Kebab with rice, and of course the Sangria. I was rolling my eyes in bliss the whole meal.... More

One of the best tasting Persian restaurants in Chicago. We were here for a business dinner meeting. If you like Middle Eastern or Persian food, you don't want to miss this place. The variety of the buffet is unbeatable. two types of chicken, including chicken kabab. Also, included beef and lamb kabab. Both were excellent. They also have lamb shank... More

The two of us shared an entree and an appetizer. We had baba ghannouj (eggplant salad) and Solomon with potatoes which came with soup. The entire meal was very satisfying. Be careful with your order as they serve very large portions.
