We had lunch in Yas and the food was reasonably good. The Koobideh was well seasoned and the bone in chicken was tasteful. It is a bit far from the city centre but I will try other Persian restaurants before I recommend this one.

went there for lunch. Ordered Chicken Fesesjan stew. The chicken was just boiled and the sauce put on top. the meat is supposed to be cooked in the sauce. Their kobedehs were marginal. There are better persian restaurants in the bay area.

I lived in San Jose some years ago, and this place was a favorite local restaurant. Returning on a business trip recently I was pleased to discover that it is still here, and appears to have maintained its quality. Service was fast and friendly, and...More
