We had eaten Italian food the night before, and were going to eat Italian the next night. So we were looking for something different, and I rememberd a lovely Middle Eastern restaurant we'd eaten at the last time we were in Boston. Lala Rokh was just a few blocks from our notel, so we called for a reservation and walked... More

The menu is very Americanized and the foods are far from authentic Persian food and very expensive for what they are. Beautiful restaurant, good service.

The food was excellent, the atmosphere was classy and comfortable. The manager was especially nice. The prices for the area and quality cant be beat.

The food here is good, but a little overpriced for the quality. I thought that the Mirza ghasemi was very good, while the Bagla Pollo could have been more tender. Typically I find slow cooked lamb shank at this price point to fall off the bone. The flavor was good though. I tried the Fesenjan as well. It was a... More

Lala Rokh kind of dissapointed me. I haven't been in years, and I remembered it being more exotic and interesting than it was. It looks a little downtrodden and in need of TLC physically as well as in the food department. I had mushrooms over polenta for an all, and it was nothing i couldnt' have made better at home... More

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
