Great Kabob place

This is the place I go when I crave for Mediterranean in Chicago. Food is tasty and portions are large enough if you are watching your weight to split with a friend or so.

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.

Weekday buffet 13.95 includes bread, tea and doughnut typed dessert. Lettuce salad, falafel, hummus, 2-3 types of chicken/rice, and vegetarian rice. Food and service were excellent. Informed that Sunday had all day more extensive buffet and we will plan on coming back for that. Also, 11-3 is free valet parking--good deal for Chicago!

If you are in River North and are hungry, head to the buffet lunch at Reza's. There is a nice selection including plenty for vegetarians. It's quick, there are nice tables outside on a quiet street and the prices are hard to beat.

We had appetizer's and wine here as part of a dinner and a show through second city. (Of which the bus driver and tour guide were top notch). The food was wonderful as well as the staff. I would go back.

This is more of a large group place, rather than where you would go if you seek good Persian food. It's adequate and well priced, but also loud and just average.

I tried the other branch in Clark's which was really good. This was our first time to this branch. The food quality was very good but the service was not very impressive. I highly recommend it if you are not rushed.

Went here to celebrate my Mother's 85th birthday, we called to find out the menu, cost, and valet arrangements. We were told you can valet for free on Sunday's for their brunch from 11am to closing. I made reservations and we arrived on time and no one was outside to take our car. One person in my party went into... More

Went here recently based on some recommendations. Always happy to try a new place, however, this one doesn't deserve any return traffic. The humuus was mealy, the portions so large as to be embarrassing, and the food was below mediocre. I had lamb that was tough and chewy. Don't bother.

Basic middle-eastern cuisine, nothing notably bad or specially good. I have been there twice now for functions, this one was bad because of an adjacent space being used for wedding dinner with very loud music (just our bad luck), not a problem the first time we came.
