This is great place for lunch with very minimum hassles and concerns. The food is very good, though typical Persian cuisine. The choices are limited for vegetarians, limited to appetizers, salads and soups. My wife loves their meat dishes.

Food good. Owner and staff attitude NASTY. Worse experience I ever had in a restaurant. No I do not drink or do drugs so I was well aware when we were treated badly. Thrown out 1/2 way through meal due to their over-booking.
