After the theatre, we ate at Lala Rokh. Excellent service, good food and wine. When we entered the restaurant I had asked if there was an outdoor patio. They didn’t and then led us to our table in a back room tucked away from the...More

I'll be honest with you, I am Persian and I completely admit to being super super picky when it comes to Persian restaurants. I am from southern California, and we have many Persian restaurants there, and only a very small handful that are good, and...More
