We both had the kebab plate. Big serving. We were both stuffed when we finished. Seasoned a bit, but the purple color spice you can put on your food definitely helped. Definitely Iranian run. Pretty good place.

Ran into this place as I walked around looking to find a restaurant that serves food I haven't tasted. Iranian food is what I couldn't find in Jakarta, my hometown. It's a cozy, small restaurant with homey ambiance and very good food.

We ran into this place by total accident but surely liked the food! Good quality with very nice authentic Persian décor! Also check out the Persian grocery store next door!

First time in a Persian restaurant, I was very curious. The tastes were unlike any other cuisine I know, and much more exotic than, say, Lebanese food. Things that sound strange (like a kidney beans and spinach dish) actually taste good, although overall the dishes...More
