Good Persian Food

I usually go here for lunch. The food is good quality and tasty. They offer platters and sandwiches in pita wraps. Sides are tasty. The meats used are chicken, beef, and lamb. Platters come with basamati rice, tomatoes, a side, and pita. Sides include fruit salad, califlower, and cucumber-like... read more

Unique place for lunch - it's small and always crowded, but so worth the wait! Try to arrive at an off time so you can get a seat. If you like gyros, but are looking for something lighter, the gyro salad will hit the spot for you! I hate cauliflower, but find that I don't even mind it in the... More

Can't write enough about how great the food is here - the chicken, beef or lamb and the side salads are spectacular also. We order from here a great deal but almost all exclusively takeout. The storefront/restaurant is clean and tidy but very brightly lit and the tables are really basic. It makes eating in the interior like eating in... More

For lunch, I'll get the doner platter and an extra grilled tomato. For dinners to go, I always get the Kabab koobideh platter, with an extra order of doner meat, 2 extra grilled tomatoes. So good, it's perfect for only two people, because you'll eat so much! I've always gotten the basmati rice/bread/tomato platter, but I'm sure the salad would... More

Whenever I'm in the mood for some Mediterranean food at work,this is where I head to for lunch. Always get the same thing, which is their Donor platter, which is tasty and rather large (ends up being two lunches for me). Maybe a bit pricey, but given that it ends up being two lunches for me, it's not really that... More

For the last year I have been eating at the Kabab Café and telling everyone that I know about this wonderful restaurant. The owner gave me a tour of the kitchen. I've worked in food service and I have to say it was one of the cleanest and well organized kitchens I have ever seen. The food is delicious and... More

The chicken was just the right moisture content , some US Persian restaurants tend to have their food too dry, this cafe has it just right. Rice and sumac were authentic favors, staff are fun and engaging, trying to get you to try more variety. Great alternative to a fancy restaurant, you get your food fast and it's a clean... More

I love going here to get a to-go falafel sandwich. The bread is excellent and the falafel is quite good as well. Reasonably priced and you get a side salad (about 8 different sides to choose from such as garden salad, fruit salad, pasta salad) to go with it. Atmosphere is very basic strip-mall seating, not a place you'd go... More

This is not your usual kabob place. They have BBQ chicken kabobs and kabobs with buffalo wings sauce for example. I ordered the Doner Kabob (gyro) sandwich. The bread was excellent and the meat was okay - not very spiced so a little bland. However, instead of the usual yoghurt sauce, the sandwich had lettuce, tomato, pickles and a sort... More
