This is a rare find. This place is actually a fast food which serves good quality Persian food. I suppose they keep their prices low by eliminating regular restaurant services. They don't have waiters/waitresses, they don't offer silverware (only plastic and foam) and their traditional drinks, yogurts, etc. are all homemade. They have really good food despite their very low... More

Gets crowded at lunch time and takes a bit since they put the meet on the grill after you order. Love the chelo kabab especially since it comes off the grill Real sit down restaurant quality food at a fast food place at a fast food price

Authentic Iranian Kabobs cooked to order with parsley, cilantro, radishes, rice, fresh bread etc. depending on your choice. Ground Beef kabob was very nicely seasoned. Hummus also tasty.

It was very surprising to find out that the food was very delicious. Went there in a group of 6, ordered different food items and there was not a single item that didn't taste good. A must go place if nearby.

The food was delicious, especially the garlic sauce! Prices are reasonable. You know it's good when you see all the natives there. :-) Not much on ambience but you can't eat ambience so who care

This might not be a luxurious place, but it certainly has the best Persian food in town...and i am saying this after trying most of the other places in Houston. It is simple and reasonably priced..not many options from their menu...but really good food..tastes like homemade! You will always find charming faces over there from the guy who takes your... More

Food here is very good and reasonably priced. Service is kind of slow because they are always busy, or at least the times we have visited and that is pretty often. It's true, they do serve free hot tea. Place is pretty clean however, the decor is a bit dated. Kid friendly and a good place for the entire family.
