I was so surprised to find a Persian place in japan. This place is the real deal with an amazing owner. All around you will find Persian rugs, a sign of prosperity in Iran. The food is extremely authentic and great tasting.

I had the koobideh Kabab here with delicious saffron rice. The space is set up like a traditional Persian eatery. So excited to find a Persian gem in Tokyo!

While traveling to Tokyo for work, I saw that there was a Persian restaurant in Koenji. Being Iranian myself, I thought taking my Japanese friends there would be a nice role reversal -- I could help them pick what to eat for once, and chat with the owners. From the moment you walk in, you're treated to a cozy restaurant... More

I missed Persian food and after few searches I came to know of this restaurant. I started with the a tea (see pictures), exactly what you would expect in an Iranian restaurant tea with the flavor of Saffron, awesome. Then I took a salad and kebab mix. To be honest the kebab was good but not outstanding, I had tasted... More

For Iranian people mot difficult aspect of living in Japan is food. Persian kitchen is completely different with Japanese. This restaurant is nice place for people who miss Iranian foods. Kababs were good, also for drink I suggest to try Dough. I also enjoyed from Salad Shirazi. But quality of rice is so far from Iranian Rice. Owner of restaurant... More

After spending two weeks in Japan, my wife and I had enough of Japanese food and decided to go for some Persian Kebab (as we are both from Iran, naturally!). This is truley a little hidden gem in small streets of Tokyo but certainly was worth a visit. The music and the room decoration took me to my childhood and... More

My wife and I enjoyed some fabulous Persian cuisine in this wonderfully charming and exotic Persian restaurant. Sadly it wasn't on a weekend evening (where there's live belly dancing shows). FOOD: The food amount was generous. I had two type of beef skewers and my wife had the chicken skewer, everything was juicy, tender and delicious. The rice is very... More

Great place great food very friendly owner! The best food I got to eat in Japan! I enjoyed every minute and really the food was great! I didn't like the food somewhere else in Tokyo and I love oriental food so there is the right place to go if you love good food and meat :)
