we have been impressed by this restaurant for a long time. I'm Persian and somewhat picky about what I eat. I have nothing but praise for the quality of food at this restaurant. We certainly don't miss going to this restaurant anytime we're in SF. Service is good and I appreciate the valet in front of the restaurant. Serving Halal... More

This restaurant was very easy to find, tons of street parking. Went in to dine for lunch and it was amazing. Persians cuisine is very tricky to get right, the fact that this place is a staple says A LOT! I've been to probably 20-30 different Persian restaurants worldwide. We ordered: mast o khiar (cucumber yogurt), Cornish hen and koobideh!... More

I live in Southern California and have access to 100s of Persian Restaurants. Since 1995 Every time that we visit San Francisco we stop by at Maykadeh to have a Perisian night. The food quality has been consistently good since 1995. The Lamb Tongue and Filet Kabob are my favorite.

It's only to be expected that a great civilization should offer a refined and delectable cuisine. Maykadeh meets that expectation. We were immediately served a tasty flatbread and raw vegetables as appetizers. We tried two typical Persian dishes: shish kebab and shishlik. Both were excellent, served with rice. At the waiter's suggestion, we sprinkled a reddish condiment over the rice... More

The joojeh kebab is amazing and so are the appetizers. Service is good and they have valet parking. Open all day as well.

Persian food is getting hard to find and good Persian food is even more scarce. This restaurant has a nice atmosphere. Service is nothing special. I hadn't had Persian food in a long while, so I ate everything and enjoyed it. The reality is that I cook these dishes as well myself. It isn't bad, but I've had better.

This restaurant was referred to me by a Persian ascend person and it was delicious . The eggplant appetiser was exceptional : warm, deliciously spiced. The lamb chops were of the highest quality : like you would love to find in a meat restaurant . Beyond Persian food per se, all ingredients were of the highest quality .

We’ve always been very happy with our meals here. We’ve eaten at Maykadeh a number of times over the past years. The food and service have always been very good. I do like the white linen; fewer restaurants are doing that. It’s a classy place. The first time we order the sheep head for novelty; but now we order it... More

Familiar Middle-Eastern dishes with a twist. Try the Fallodeh (spelling?) dessert--very unusual and refreshing.

Came here for a late lunch. Ordered koobideh, food was really good. The service was average at best. I would come for food but don't expect much for service.

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
