One of the best Persian foods and the service was great, but we went on a Sunday so the place was very quiet. Not all the food was available on the menu but the selection that was available was good enough

This place near the parliament is totally local. Great food at reasonable prices. We came on Friday and around 7:30 this great band started - jazz, Persian music, really nice! East to talk while music is playing. acoustics are great!!Superb value, very accommodating, try everything Persian for the best food. Buffet also - but we ordered from the owner - the best things are not on the menu anyway. E

Delicious Iranian food first off, most-o-khiar great, chai was great, the jujeh kabob with rice and the tomato was all delicious. Some suggestions for them: I wasn't sure that it was the correct restaurant from the outside, I thought it was just a bar or Italian restaurant until closely I saw the restaurant title. Obviously they sold Iranian food but the menus they gave us were all Italian food which was confusing at first but the waiter spoke very good English and new the Iranian food menu. It was a little unfortunate that the owner/s didn't 'taarof' or greet us in Farsi when they recognized that we were Iranian ( which is one of the reasons we sought out an Iranian restaurant because we are foreigners and would like to feel welcomed ). The waiter was very observant and knew that we were wondering if there was 'somaq' and brought it without being asked. Last suggestion to the restaurant: the waiter suggested we could have most-o-khiar or salad, so we decided to get both, but I assumed that the salad would be shirazi, but it wasn't it was a regular salad with thousand island dressing ( would rather have had olive oil/vinagrette/dressing on the side/asked what dressing we'd like ). Hopefully anyone reading this review can overlook the suggestions section and remember that the food was really delicious and the service very very good.
