Molana expertly brings the food of Persia to Boston and it's neighbouring communities. Having eaten there several times in the past two years, I highly recommend this restaurant. The beef soltani, beef barg, beef kubideh, lamb kabab are all excellent. The long grain saffron rice is fragrant and delicious. Service is courteous and the food is consistent.

I have been to the restaurant several times; I love the food and the wait staff is very courteous!
The prices are fairly low. I love the lamb kebab and the cornish hen. You should give it a try. I wil be going back!

We went to Molana last night (Sat) with another couple. There was no wait for a table, but the service was very slow and not very friendly. The lamb kabobs had three small pieces of meat, a piece of a grilled tomato, and a huge amount of rice - disappointing and not worth the price. When the check came, they had added on an 18% gratuity even though there were just four people, which is more than I think the service was worth. After desert the waitress came over and ask if we could leave since there were people waiting for a table! This was a first. I won't be going back.

The food was generally tasteless and the meat I had(lamb kebabs) were improperly cooked. I also felt that most of the things offered were overpriced, especially the entrees. In addition, they did not accept AMEX credit cards, showing that they are trying to ring the last dollar out of the clientele. This place is a ripoff. The service was not unfriendly but still pretty indifferent. I would never go there again or recommend it. Maybe the Persian clientele like it

We also went on a groupon and would go back again. Home-y atmosphere that felt warm and welcoming - several families and a birthday party in the works. Salad Shirazi was ok mix of cukes and toms, but the Barley Soup was very disappointing - way bland and a bit lumpy (adding salt and pepper could not revive it). However, the Chicken Kubideh (skewers of grilled ground chix) was excellent - rich and gentle spicing in large portions. Also real good was the Boneless Lamb Kabob, very delicious (wish that portion was larger). Both served with loads of basmati rice and grilled tomato.
