The restaurant is huge and most diners are Middle Easterns, few tourists, so that only means the food is fantastic. Perfectly seasoned and grilled kababs and koobidehs, quality Biryani rice, delicious hummus and baba ganush sum up the whole experience.

We have some Armenian friends, and they're always talking about how much they like their bread. On the east coast there's no place to get genuine Armenian bread. So when we got to Cali we made sure we found a place that had it. This place was recommended. It's a nice restaurant. We arrived right at the lunchtime peak and... More

Went there with some friends for the first time. The appetizers were great and the food came in really large portions. Service was good and we had a great time.

We have been going to Raffi for years and the quality has never changed, it is delicious! Our favorite is the chelo kabob, a classic. It gets pretty busy so we try to go early or late to avoid the crowds.

The best Persian kabab I've had outside of Iran! The Barg kabab was tender and yummy. The Koobideh is amazing. The outside balcony is nice. The customer service is good.

One of the best Persian Restaurants I have ever tried (and I have tried many). Food is delicious, authentic and made to perfection. A friend suggested us to try out this place during our LA visit and we are so happy we did it! We were with a group of six adults and a toddler, service was fast and friendly... More

We go here often and love it. Has all the traditional Med food, but higher quality than average and offers more/different dishes to try. Love the beans and shirazi salad. Also, their meat is top quality. The the chicken, luula kabob, and filet. Great environment and great service.

Thank NBere
