“Somewhat disappointing”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

Although there were only three other tables the service of the single waitress was made even slower by her failure to deliver menus on arrival...these were received about 15 minutes after seating.

We hadn't tried Persian before so took on trust the description of the dish as resembling a chickrn maryland but found on arrival that it was more akin to a dried out broiler chicken and largrly inedible. The rice was quite good.

The waitress was very consistent in that the sttention we received resulted in us declining to try dessert.

“Wholesome Persian Fare”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

We visited this restaurant for the first time mid-week after 8:30pm, and were the only people in the restaurant; which was not very surprising.

The restaurant is located close to a lake (maybe a large pond, I couldn't tell :-); the decor was very classy, and the service extremely friendly and helpful. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu, and offered suggestions on what we should eat.

We had the Kashk Bademjan (pureed eggplant), Ghorrmeh Sabzi with lamb, and the lamb shanks. The servings were generous, and the food was wholesome and tasty.

Definitely worth another another visit!
