We went to Daffodil's for a family dinner at the urging of our kids. I am glad they suggested it too! As soon as we walked in, the owner (her name means Daffodil in Iranian -where she is from) greeted us with a smile and...More

The food at this place is off the charts yummo! It has had the time for the intense variety of spices and ingredients to meld themselves into plates of deliciousness. The owner allows you to go through the line and obtain samples of anything you...More

If you are a little adventuresome and like things out of the ordinary the daffodill is for you. Many kinds of Persian food are available to sample before ordering. My wife had a chicken dish, I had the pomegranate walnut chicken. Both very good. The...More

The place is small and can be hard to find but the food is amazing. All the dishes are pre-made kinda buffet style and you can sample as many as you want until you decide what you want to eat. You cannot go wrong, everything...More
