The Good: conveniently located, very quick, clean, good value, lively lamb The Bad:?not fancy?, no coffee This is an extremely nice little Persian place in an upscale shopping center. There is plenty of parking and the exterior is nice with Persian cushions on the outside seats. The interior is very clean and modestly decorated with a few bits from the... More

The interior is not very nice. The placed was dirty and outdated. There were flies in the restaurant that we had to shoo away multiple times - gross! There was also a food cart that had plates with food still on them just sitting out in the open, right near the bathroom. It was disgusting to have to walk past... More

I was concerned that I would not like the food here. The kebabs were terrific as was the bread and the rice. I didn't care for the eggplant dip because there was too much mint in it. I'm a purist. Likewise I didn't like the tea, also had mint in it. But that's my preference. The place is small but... More

I have been there many many times and have never been disappointed with their food or service. Sometimes we eat in or do take out. Also a pleasure to go there

a wonderful restaurant. Starting with the owner and host coming outside to tell us not to wait for our friend outside in the summer heat, but to come inside to wait. Maybe we got extra wonderful food because our friend is Iranian, but the food was scrumptious. Chicken kabob done perfectly, lovely spices (we happened to have a table where... More

The owners are wonderful and if you close your eyes as you eat your food, It will take you back to another Country.

When with my wife and we got the lamb spicy chicken (really not spicy, just flavored well) and beef skewers with pita bread plenty of cucumber sauce. Very impressed with the food, lamb was very tender, chicken had a great flavor. Warm fresh bread and made in house sauce were excellent. Wife has since gone back and gotten a couple... More
