Delightful persion food, but very crowded and noisy. Table was quite small and difficult to balance serving plates with dinner plates. It would have been better with a smaller crowd.

My husband got one of the soups and I got one of the jeweled rice dishes. We both were very impressed. I loved the mint tea, also, and the rock candy it came with. The waiter was friendly and attentive.

Food is mediocre. Chicken kabob is the only item that is good enough on that menu. The rest isn't even close to Persian food. We went back just to give it another shot and we had the worst unwelcoming experience as we had kids with...More

On a recent visit to San Francisco my husband and I thought of trying this popular Persian restaurant. Not being very familiar with this cuisine, our choice of dishes leaned towards the cautious -- kebabs, lentil soup, and fesenjan. They were well prepared. The restaurant...More
