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.

I love Persian food and the food I had in this place was up to my standards. Actually tabouli salad was the best I have ever tried anywhere else and lamb shanks are phenomenal there. The only problem was the waiter, who seemed to be clueless about the food he was serving and the order in which he brought things... More

The food was gross. You can put a putrid piece of meat on the biggest stack of rice and it is still putrid. The waiter tacked on extra 20% for himself without our knowledge and consent. The cockroaches were an added bonus. AVOID REZA'S AT ALL COSTS!

A huge building paying homage to the owner with a massive red neon sign saying Reza's restaurant and piano bar! Don't look for a piano bar or good Persian food. A handful of Persian dishes executed very poorly and delivered by clueless service staff in a very robotic manner. The restaurant is not clean and very cold looking and feeling.... More

The food is good it's all you can eat and I don't like all you can eat places. I eat too much I in my experience the food is not as good when you make huge piles of it for hungry hoards of people eating as much as they can. My coworkers usually go here for special occasions. The place... More
