Back again -- for the umpteenth time. Whatever you choose, Max will cook it up deliciously. This place is a gem -- but don't tell everyone! Salmon, chicken, hummus. Great Middle-Eastern food. If you haven't tried this cuisine -- try it here!

A real under the radar Persian restaurant in Chicago. The Chicago go to Persian joint was for a long time Reza’s. As a longtime Reza customer from the very beginning when they first opened to recently, I can attest to its slow and steady decline...More
