“Delightful Persian Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2012

We found this place entirely by accident, walking around downtown Mountain View looking for a lunch spot following a morning doctor visit nearby. It's a friendly, family-run spot, with very authentic, fresh, and flavorful cooking. My wife and I have enjoyed various Middle Eastern cuisines for years, so we know good from bad, and this place is very good indeed.

We arrived near the end of the lunch hour, with the restaurant half full. We were greeted warmly, seated, had menu questions answered, and got our orders placed, all with reasonable speed and great warmth. The food arrived freshly prepared in in good time, and we enjoyed it a lot.

The only downside of the service is that it is sometimes TOO relaxed -- it took a lot longer than it should have to get a check and pay it. But that's a minor quibble in light of how nice everything else was. We'll be back!
