The place is like a beer hall in the number of tables, but the food is excellent, with some unusual ethnic selections, and the portions generous.

The kabob was delicious The ambiance was comforting and there is a feel of the old world. There was a 50 minute wait and they should give a free appetizer. I told them it was my birthday, and the restaurant would charge us 5 dollars

The marinade was light; I had hope for a more pronounced flavor and the... More

Rafii's place is absolutely the best Persian restaurant in the whole US. I have been to almost all Persian restaurants in the highly Persian populated cites in the US, and I can confidently say the the service, food and quality you experience at Raffi's is unique. The place is always full of people so there is usually a wait time... More
