I had a traditional Persian beef dish with rice. It was well prepared and presented. The beef was well seasoned and delicious. The traditional appetizer was also delicious. The service was very attentive and prompt.

Had dinner here with my wife after a long day. We were greeted by friendly staff and seated immediately. For the entire evening, we never had to look far for someone to help us. The food was terrific, with good portions - all freshly made. I will certainly be returning here for many more meals. Highly recommended!

We went to dinner tonight and everything was made to perfection. My husband had the chicken kabob and the chicken was so tasty. I had the Loobya .That was so flavorful hints of cinnamon, cardamom and spices I could never dream of. Prices are reasonable too. I finished my leftovers by the time I got home.

We went with friends who have been there many times. It has been a few years since our last visit. My wife and I both had the FESENJAN (Pomegranate sauce with walnut stew) A sweet and sour puree of walnuts and pomegranate sauce served over baked tender chicken breast and white basmati rice. It was delicious. Both of our friends... More

1st time experience of Persian food & i loved it. I love the bread and the salad ( green basel, green parsley, feta cheese) i just couldn't get enough of them. Nice flavored tea (with some spice maybe cardamom) Good food portions with a wide variety of rice. I'm not a big fan of rice but the rice with lentils,... More

Authentic Persian cuisine. The shrimp, beef and chicken kabobs are delicious. They were served with dill rice and veggies. Very unique flavors. Subtle yet complex. The Persian hot tea was good. It complimented the food nicely. Dessert was not my favorite but I'm glad I tried it. It's ice cream with saffron, rose water and something else unique but I... More

Unlike Kasra this place has Persian food that go beyond the grill. I'm not throwing shade on Kasra, its great and I like it. This place though has food that actually includes some vegetables. From the times I went it has a calm nice ambiance and definitely worth a visit if you want some good Persia food and deserts.

This restaurant tucked away from the street had free onsite parking. A gracious host led us to a quiet, small corner table. Its linen napkins, glasses, plates, and utensils all were clean. The large open dining area had a pleasant ambiance. Walls and displays showcased art and artifacts from the Caspian Sea region. Since there was a weekly half-price special... More
