Excellent Persian and Italian selections on the menu. I bit pricey, but the quality and taste of the food is well worth it! Highly recommended.

If you don't know what Persian food is, you need to learn. This is the best place in Dallas for joojeh kabab. My mouth is watering as I think about. If you are going late in the evening on a weekend, be prepared for dancing.
