If you are going there for an extensive beer list, probably not a good choice. Their draw is the great menu with Persian food. They have beer, liquor and wine, but the real attraction is their food.

You will need to ask the restaurant that question. I did notice there were a fair number of tables throughout the restaurant. But I would ask them.
