“Enough food for two to share”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

We had the combo kabob platter. We were glad that we decided to split it. Plenty of food for two. Great prices, too.

“This place is a joke”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Said that I never had Persian food before I decided to try it out. Saturday 1pm, july 2013, the restaurant is empty... very strange considering all the good reviews and the "Certificate of Excellence 2013", I decided to try it anyway ...big big error.
This has been the worse food I ever had since years, everything looked like it was pre-(over)cooked and just warmed. The white rice was so overcooked you could consider it good to use as a paint or worse a glue. The hummus like everything else had no taste. The tables were filthy and greasy.
The order was taken by a barefaced, cheeky man, at least the guy that brought the drinks was "better".
I'm sorry to say that this luck of quality and neatness can't be considered "a bad day" (admitting that a restaurant can have one), so that, I must think that most of the many good reviews are doubtful.
If you desire a decent 'Libanese or middle Eastern food" better go to the supermarket in Friendship Heights, even the processed hummus there is very, very much better.
And I'm sure of one thing, real Persian food can't be that bad!
Avoid that place at all costs.

“good options, good service, good time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Pros: Fresh breads with a good dipping sauce is served right away. Unique soup options. Very well prepared meats (especially kebobs). Helpful service. They have daily specials and consistency favorites on the main menu.

Cons: Several options on the menu are very unique and therefore can be very hit or miss, especially from the daily menu.

Summary: A fantastic option in Bethesda that has well prepared ethnic foods and great service.

Quick affordable and delicious lunch. Beef lamb rice and sumac. Awesome.

Even the free toasted pita tips with yogurt and parsley mint was great.
