“Valentine's Dinner Provides Relaxing Choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

We eat lunch and/or dinner here on average about once a month. If out-of-town friends are looking for some different cuisine, we bring them to Caspian. Food and service are excellent. You can watch the rolling and kneading of the bread before it goes in the oven. Hot bread is served with herbs, feta cheese, radish, and onion. Sometimes we order the hummus with it. This neighborhood restaurant has been in Houston for quite some time. My favorite is the lamb shank, and I avoid ordering lamb, except at Persian restaurants that really know how to cook it. This Valentine's celebration was perfect with a quiet family atmosphere. No silly frills. Just really good food.

“Love the bread & half price wine night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We tend to go on Tuesdays which are half price (bottle) wine night. They don't inflate the price - it really is half the usual restaurant wine bottle price. Love the free hot taftoon bread that they serve with herbs, feta cheese, radish & onion. We often get the hummus to add to it. A favorite dish is the Seafood Kabob with grilled veg and Sabzi Polow (herbed rice). Friendly service and pleasant atmosphere.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

We ae lunch at Cafe Caspian. The food was good the service was OK. We odered an appetizer and never got it. The eggplant stew with beef was delicious. We will go back just to try some of the other stews. The cornish hen was good, but next time I would try something more from their culture.

Great food & service. Nothing special about decor/ambience but great Persian food. We enjoy it every time we eat here.
