The food at this place is off the charts yummo! It has had the time for the intense variety of spices and ingredients to meld themselves into plates of deliciousness. The owner allows you to go through the line and obtain samples of anything you...More

The Daffodil is a hidden gem tucked away in a small strip mall. If you like Persian food, you really need to go here. If you have never had Persian food, you should make this your first experience. You will be greeted by the owner,...More

The place is small and can be hard to find but the food is amazing. All the dishes are pre-made kinda buffet style and you can sample as many as you want until you decide what you want to eat. You cannot go wrong, everything...More

We had been unintentionally putting off going here and finally gave it a try. The food is AMAZING and the owner/cook/server is the absolute sweetest. We highly recommend it and cannot wait to come back again. It's definitely going in our regular rotation.
