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

Cafe Caspian serves great, authentic Persian food at very reasonable prices. It is a fine example of the many great ethnic restaurants in Houston.

Delicious, well-prepared Persian food. We started with half Kashk –E Bademjan (pureed eggplant) and Hummus with the bread baked in the oven (kiln) in view of the dining tables. The also bring you a plate of parsley, olives and feta cheese to start. I had the delicious Fesenjan (Pomegranate and walnut sauce with chicken stew) and my husband, the tu... More

Food is great, good service, and excellent location close to work. The hot tea is so good, I had to get the name and buy it for my home and office. Hummus and bread are always fresh. I love the Koobideh combo. I will continue coming over and over. One of my favorites in the area.

Because of Cafe Caspian, we usually have a "Persian Day" at office, almost every week. We usually leave office in a group of maybe 5 or 6 people and order family style meal with combination of meats and different rice toppings. Best way for everyone to enjoy all the different foods that the place has to offer. if you are... More

We loved Cafe Caspian. The koobideh, gormeh sabzi, bread & herbs/cheese were all delightful. I'm never disappointed. The quality is consistent and service is on point.

Hesitant to try Persian food, not going to lie, so my expectations were to have Whataburger on the way home, but it not only surpassed my expectations but shattered my preconceived notions of Persian food. The chicken, filet, salmon and ground beef were all EXCELLENT! Cooked perfectly, seasoned impeccably, and overall...outstanding. All three of their rice selections were incredible with... More

When I want to treat myself away from the mundane, I take family and friends to Caspian. The food never fails to delight me or my friends. The bread and cheese with basil are way better than chips and salsa. The spices are time tested, bringing out the flavors of their meat and chicken dishes. You can cook a steak... More
