We stopped in to get a menu as we ran errands. We came back to try it and found a new favorite spot! We tried the kabobs, I ordered the chicken and beef, my husband ordered the lamb so we could try it all! We also had the squash appetizer that was just outstanding!!! The seasoning and flavors are outstanding!... More

Great food. This was my first time trying anything like it before. The butternut squash appetizer was awesome. I also had the triple kabob plate. The tri-tip was by far my favorite. But what really stood apart from the crowd was their sheer chai tea. My goodness it was great. The staff was also incredibly friendly. Give them a try.

I grew up with home cooked, authentic Persian food and this is pretty up there. The lamb kabob is 👌🏼. Nice hole in the wall place. Definitely would go back over and over again! Only criticism would be the rice is not the buttery, fluffy Persian rice I know.

Came back for more Teka Kabob & Qabili Pallow. Food is always AMAZING!!! The spices, the textures, and the portions are a delight to consume and savor. I also enjoy the spicy, tangy hors d'oeuvre (potatoes, chickpeas, onions, and more) though for some it is a bit spicy. The location is small so when it's packed, try the take-out. I... More

My husband and I regularly eat here. The food is consistent and always delicious. The place is small and cozy and can get crowded on the weekend. Make sure you come early to get a seat. The service is occasionally spotty but overall acceptable.

Not much atmosphere, but the lunch menu can't be beat. You get a main course of kabobs (chicken or beef) salad, pita bread and drink for under $10.00. Service is friendly, I have enjoyed all the different courses on the menu, also have carried out. Don;t let the location fool you, give this place a try!

I met a friend here for lunch at his recommendation. I had a lunch special with lamb. Very nice and the lunch comes with a drink. My lamb was great and I loved the spiced rice. The potato salad was good, different from American style and more tart. The smells are wonderful and they have quite a good selection.
