I had to return to this restaurant in the Sunset area of San Francisco which was introduced to me by a local and good friend who dines there often. Even her other house guests from overseas want to return to eat there as their first meal. Food is delicious and so genuine Persian it is scrumptious. Good sized servings, attentive... More

There's the average restaurant that everyone goes too and then there's Lavash in the sunset. As simple as just great food, and they want you to be happy.

The food is wonderful, lived the appetizer of lavash bread with briny cheese, walnuts, herbs and grapes. Grilled meats and vegetables are to die for. Friendly service, nice decor. Parking is the only problem.

Came here for dinner last night and LOVED it! It was a Wednesday night around 7:30pm and for a table for 2, we waited about 15 min. The place is on the smaller side but cozy. We shared the following that were all delicious and we came away full: -Sabzi Panir salad with feta, cucumber, tomato, herbs, walnuts & grapes.... More

One of the best Persian restaurants I've been to, meat quality was excellent, and food was soooo good!

Wonderful ethnic restaurant. The "fesenjan" is a must try dish and the eggplant appetizer is also a gem. The service was friendly.

My husband and I were only in San Fran for two days and the travel agent had booked us into a mega hyped restaurant that we hated so we were counting on Lavash to give us the dining experience we hoped for. Lavash did not disappoint. There were four of us and the portions were generous, delicious and perfectly seasoned.... More

Not a fancy place, located in the Sunset District, a good cab ride from downtown, The generous portions and friendly service were well worth the trip. Do not expect the typical Lebanese/Greek dishes that you find locally.

We have been to several Persian restaurants but this one seemed less appealing. The food seemed dry and not terribly tasty. The menu was not terribly clear in terms of what we got. On the night we were there it was crowded and noisy. Good for business but hard for conversation. Service was prompt. Prices seemed normal for SF but... More
