Dropped into Pomegranate on Main after taking someone to a nearby airport. I sat outside on the patio for lunch as I had my dog with me. Happy that they accommodated us. But as soon as the pita bread arrived on the table with a big pat of butter and a small little chunk of feta cheese, a swarm of... More

My husband and I stopped by for lunch over the 4th weekend and what a pleasant surprise. If you are looking for something different than your usual fare go here. We both had the Original salad with lettuce, raisins, basmati rice, lentils, with their citrus dressing. I added a nice piece of salmon for $3: which was tender, moist, and... More

The food was great! In fact we wanted more but was told the kitchen was closed? The service was not so great but the food was so good I'll go back and just lower my expectation for friendly service.

This is an amazing restaurant on South Main downtown. They start you off with what they call a Persian breakfast: flatbread served with a plate of feta, unsalted butter and mint leaves. This goes great with the many types of hummus they have. We shared a saffron chicken and beef kabob plate, which was plenty of food for both of... More

The food was unusual -- i.e. the pita bread was served with a plate of butter, mint and feta and we were instructed to eat it in that combination. I had an appetizer with eggplant, but couldn't really taste the eggplant. It was tasty, but I couldn't tell you the ingredients. I had the salmon wrap and it included pickle... More

This is our "go to" spot for lunch and/or dinner in Greenville. The food is consistently good, the hummus is the best in town. And we highly recommend the chicken kabob. The entire staff is friendly, helpful and always make dining here quite an enjoyable experience. There is a cozy covered patio or indoor dining if you prefer.

We had a great meal here. I don't know if the food is authentically Persian but it was terrific. Sharing a plate of appetizers among 4 was a good start - plenty of variety and tastes. The main courses were perfectly prepared and seasoned similarly to dishes I've had in other Middle Eastern restaurants but still with wonderful new flavors.... More
