Pleasing Persian

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

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.

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!

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.

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.
