This was our first visit to this restaurant. We were able to find parking at a city of Glendale parking lot that offers 90 minutes of free parking, located at Maryland and Broadway about a half block away from the back "Entrance" to the restaurant. The restaurant offers convenient valet parking at this back "Entrance" as well. Reservations are only... More

Amazing food. In Iranian circles outside of LA this place is the Mecca of Chelo Kabab! The outdoor area is so beautiful. Service was excellent. Portions are large and plentiful. You have to get Musto Mooseer (yogurt with chalets), it was delicious. The ice cream they have is not a traditional persian ice cream, it lacked saffron and pistachios but... More

Pretty much every time business brings me to Glendale I visit this restaurant. The best places in town for middle eastern food. Great tastes complemented by good service.

This is my most recent visit, with work managers from out of town. The meat here is always on point, and there was plenty of that for me to take home because my manager is from out of town and she was leaving town the following morning so she gave me her left over mahi. Go on a weekday and... More

Love this place! Yogurt with shallots. Barberry rice. Kabobs. Pay extra $2 for special rice. Valet parking. We go here every time we are in town. Sometimes twice.

As all of the other reviews very consistently rate Raffi's Place "first-rate" and absolutely authentic for Middle Eastern/Iranian/Persian food ... make that cuisine ... I can only add one more, to the same effect. I lived in Glendale for many years, and first encountered Raffi's place when it was just a two person operation, expertly run by Gohar and her... More

We had to go back and eat there again. I wished we had this restaurant near us so we could eat there all the time. The food, service and restaurant is amazing and so enjoyable. Every time we are in LA we drive to Glendale just so we can go to this restaurant. There are many Persian restaurants in LA... More

I cant resist coming back over and over to this restaurant! The place is simply the best Iranian restaurant i have ever been to! The tahdeeg with gheima is irresistible, their rice is good, their mast moseer is so good, their gheima, kebabs, and many other authentic dishes are just so good, you must visit it

The Kabob was good. But I have had just as good for nearly half the price elsewhere. You won't be disappointed in the quality. But you may leave feeling slightly taken advantage of. It's Kabob.
