Serving classic Persian cuisine, including kebobs with basmati rice and meat stews (khoresh) and Middle Eastern fusion dishes, including Paella and seafood, in a relaxed, elegant and tranquil atmosphere of Persian carpets, a running window fountain, and traditional Persian and French music.

Great Persian restaurant

We eat at this restaurant enough to have gotten to know the owner. The food is great, the staff is friendly and accomodating, the space is intimate and well decorated. They have an awsome Sunday brunch, and sometimes a belly dancer during the week. It's one of our favorite places to eat, and has... read more

Great food, nice atmosphere. Don't forget to bring your wine. Everything was fresh. Very reasonably priced.

I love middle eastern food, but typically eat Lebanese. We thought this looked similar and decided to give it a try. It is a bit blander than Lebanese cooking but our meal was excellent from start to finish!!! We had the hummus, shirazi salad, and shared the combo sirloin/ground beef kebob lunch platter that came with rice. I asked for... More

The Mrs. and I ate here recently, early on a Friday evening, which happened to be the day before Valentine’s Day. The dining area is relatively small, maybe 25-30 feet long and 20 feet wide, and the decor was reasonably inviting and warm. When we arrived, the room was almost filled with some large and small groups. I would recommend... More

Sarah had heard of the Orchard Market and Cafe, but we had never been to it. Since we were going shopping in the Towson area, we decided to find the Orchard Market and try it out. While the "finding" aspect was a bit tricky (it's located well off Joppa Road in a semi-industrial area), the trying part was a total... More

Went late Sunday afternoon around 2:30pm which is lunch menu-there was plenty of choices left on the Sunday Buffet. One adult in our group had a dish a la carte of the menu-the spicy chicken and it was succulent! One gripe-I have 3 stars for value because Buffet prices (14.95) should not be the same for adults and children, as... More

Have been here off and on for a decade. The atmosphere is charming; the service is personal and excellent; the food is scrumptious. How about saffron ice cream, made on their premises, in a pastry crust with candied orange peel (also made there) for dessert? They do a superb job of mixing spices and flavors that never overpower the main... More

A long-time favorite of ours. It's BYOB, which keeps cost low. And food is wonderful every time. Last night we walked in and were warmly greeted by Jason (as always), who has been there as long as I've been going here (decades). I think he's the owner, host, server and chef, he does it all, and with a wonderful smile... More
