There are house specialties, like ghorme sabzi or chopped scallions, parsley & chives with kidney beans & lamb shank; fesenjoon, a pomegranate sauce simmered with crushed roasted walnuts with a choice of chicken or mini beef meatballs; and baked chicken and basmati rice mixed with almonds, raisins, orange peels, pistachio & saffron. Or a selection of appetizers that include humus, dolmas and homemade pickled vegetables or torshee may be enough. Several kinds of basmati rice feature dill and fava beans or lentils and golden raisins. Or basmati rice with barberries and saffron.

The VanNess buses run often.
