We like Persian/Middle East food for a change of pace. The food has a mild taste, nothing overly spiced. Both of us had the Lamb (Barreh) Kabob plus the side dishes that are included with the meal. Prices are reasonable, friendly service was average (three...More

Had never been to a Persian restaurant before, so have none to compare with. In shopping center; would have been kind of hard to find if our son had not been there. We got the "family style" selection. Very, very good. Great, pleasant service.

Always delicious eats and the owner and staff always friendly! We've been enjoying this little out of the way place for the last couple of years, usually for lunch. It's a little hard to find the first time but rest assured...it's worth it. The hummus...More
