Their hummus, mast khiar, and sishleek kabob are to die for. When you add rice pilaf with sour cherry and the yoghurt drink, you will feel like you are in heaven, especially if you are originally from the area or you lived in that part of the world long enough to enjoy their culinary wonders.

Everyone whom I saw or interacted with at this place was very pleasant and all smiles. Unfortunately for me, I thought the food was too salty. I would go back and try something else because this restaurant gets high marks, and because I'm not familiar enough with the cuisine to determine if this is the expected taste or not. If... More

Took a Persian lady to dinner - where else would I go? She actually suggested this restaurant. The food was wonderful. I had been there several times before as it is one of my favorite restaurants

Food is absolutely delicious.. The sultani barg... Waiter's name was Zafar... Amazing service just because of the waiter. Everytime I go there I ask for him and he never never disappoints. Doesn't matter if it is busy or not, his service is amazing. One of my favorite restaurants in my home town.

I should start off with I LOVE PERSIAN FOOD, you could probably pay me in dill rice and I would be perfectly happy. The service was fast, friendly and prompt and the feed was awesome. It was pretty packed but we were seated in a very timely manner.

I went on a Sunday when the place was overflowing with families, pretty clearly mostly Iranian. There was no wait. The waiter went out of his way to be very helpful not only with menu suggestions but with guidance on how to eat them. Of course, the jasmine rice was perfect and abundant. I had the shaslick combo of skewers... More

First, let me say I would have given this place a 5 star if it wasn't for the slow service and loud atmosphere. We went there on a Friday night, and it was packed and it was packed with loud people. However, aside from that, the place offers the best Persian food in town probably. We tried the Kobob &... More

For more than a decade this place has been consistently great. High quality food very reasonable prices. The little extras like complementary starters, fresh baked bread, and great brewed ice tea. Hummus is the best I've ever eaten. Lamb, beef, and chicken dishes are all excellent. Never had anything but great experiences here.

This place A place to visit. I am very picky when it comes to Indian and middle eastern cuisines and Kasra hits the spot every time. This is our must visit list whenever we are in Houston. Let's start with Hummus, and flat bread nan is excellent. Can never go with Sultani, but their lamb shank steals the limelight. Check... More

My wife and I came here with a couple of friends, and we were excited for what the place had to offer. The food here was very good, the humus was very tasty, but just a little looser in consistency. This doesn't bother me, but just something I noticed. The chicken dishes were vey good also, we all got a... More
