The food was excellent and the service was good too. The only problem is the parking. Very little self parking, you must leave the car to a valet ($1.50).

When my son almost finished his salad, he found a big fly at the bottom of his plate. I nearly vomited when I saw that. When we pointed it out to the waitress, she barely reacted. Instead offered us more of that same salad. The salad was clearly unwashed, came straight from the bag that has been who knows where.... More

First of all I should say that you can get lots of good Persian food in LA, especially on Westwood Boulevard, but this part of Beverly Hills/Weho, not so many choices. Shah Abbas has excellent food and most nights before 8pm there is literally no one there. Weekends on a Saturday it is very loud Persian pop music and dancing.... More

I wish this restaurant would do us all a favor and close their doors for good. At the very least they need a new chef and some customer service training. The restaurant stays in business by catering to the banquet crowd in the Persian community. An unsuspecting visitor to our great city could easily wonder in off the street and... More

We ate here on a Saturday night. The menu given to us was a take away menu. It was only upon receiving the bill that they said that the prices charged on a Saturday night were 25% more than that menu stated. There was also a 35% service charge. The food was nothing special. There was a limited range of... More
