Great for dinner too. Lunch buffet allows you to try some dishes you might not order before you try them. Buffet is good place to start.

I have been going to this restaurant since it opened about 30 years ago. Over the years some of the menu have changed, but the service, the friendliness, and the good vibe of the restaurant never has. Jason, the owner, is usually our waiter. He...More

Description
Serving classic Persian cuisine, including kebobs with basmati rice and meat stews (khoresh) and Middle Eastern fusion dishes, including Paella and seafood, in a relaxed, elegant and tranquil atmosphere of Persian carpets, a running window fountain, and traditional Persian and French music. Local artists and musicians are regulars at our small restaurant, and business is brisk on Fridays and Saturdays at 7pm. We have been in business since 1988, and strive to offer our diners the best food and service for the best possible price.
