I had an early dinner here after a movie across the street. Almost empty. Pleasant server. Ordered "lemony chicken rice soup" and it was more of a vegetable/chicken with exotic spices. Didn't taste any lemon. Very hearty, though. I had chicken shish kabob dinner-served with...More

We dined here on a Saturday night after an evening movie. The restaurant stays open late, which is excellent. There were not a lot of diners, but the food was fantastic and service was excellent. We ordered the Kashk Bademjan (sauteed eggplant), lentil soup, tabouli...More

The STUFFED GRAPE LEAVES were chewy and tasted store bought and the Salmon shish kabob was over priced and dry. A major disappointment. Don't waste your time here.
