The food was great and the service was very friendly and informative. The flavors of each dish has different levels of spice and herbs.

What a disappointinfg dinner! The kebab was undercooked and when she took it back to the kitchen it came back burnt (and still red inside). None of the other dishes were good either, not even the rice. Now I understand why the cook said that she doesn't get many Iranian customers as no Iranian would stand for such bad food!... More

We had a lovely dinner at this Beacon Hill restaurant. Excellent persian cuisine with a very knowledgeable staff. There were 3 of us for dinner--1 friend was from the Mid East and 2 of us had never experienced Persian food. With the guidance of our very knowledgeable server, we enjoyed appetizers of a lovely eggplant dip and a mushroom dish.... More

I haven't been here for a few years, but came back for a party of 15 or 16 people the other night. The menu was not set, but offered 4 separate entrees, after appetizers that were table wide, followed by two choices for dessert, baklava and saffron ice cream (you have to try it!) Not only was the food every... More

A cozy little place in Beacon Hill. Tables are very close together and the few week night diners were all packed into the back of the restaurant. Conversation was difficult due to closeness of other diners. The rest of the restaurant was empty so the packing of the customers was apparently for the ease of the wait staff. The menu... More

We were so delighted that they were open after the first heavy snowstorm of the season, that although the food was middling and the service as well, this was a memorable evening. Lovely to find this cute Persian restaurant in such an unexpected setting.

What a beautiful area of Boston in which this little restaurant is located. Small and comfortable back room. Having had Persian food a couple of times before, this was not the absolute best I have had, but it was fairly good. Service was acceptable, nothing extraordinary on either end of the scale. I had a beef dish (can't find it... More

This is an old favorite I had not visited for several years. It is on the ground level of a slope side Beacon Hill building. If you are unfamiliar you might think, "really?" But once inside the decor and lighting take you to another time in a non-kitchy way. Elegant, quiet, a blend of European/Persian cuisine, with a nicely matched... More
