If ever you want to have lunch in a Persian/Armenian restaurant Raffi is one of the best. If weekend, you should expect a wait time about 30 min. Their food is very good, but pricey.

Raffi's Place is very popular and they serve large quantities of food, but it's only average, not great. My wife and I went to dinner. The hummus was delicious, as was the Greek salad. However, the chicken thigh kabobs were mediocre--some pieces were dried out...More

Yes, they do have rice and appetizers that are vegetarian. They also have fish but really this is the place to go for their kabob. If you're going with a group and they're not vegetarian then you should go for sure and... More
