Most of the dishes I choose are simple foods - chicken, kabobs, shrimp etc with rather subtle and tasty spices. Great fare. Sometimes I go for the specials which offer some insight into some more exotic and complex tastes, such as the 3 jewel chicken ( Jewelry polo), Tahchin chicken, and Ghormeh Sabzi, and especially Fesenjen ( a cornish game hen /pomegranate stew/walnut). And they have many interesting appetizers, and as well, vegetarian dishes.

What is spectacular is the way the rice is done, light and fluffy to serve as a bed for the kabobs, or mixed with various spices and lima beans for example - to be served with lamb shanks. The rice is spectacular - did i say that already !! ?

Tradition abounds with raw onion and flat bread to start, and as well, black tea with sugar cubes to suck on. No coffee is served here. They also serve kabobs without the rice in case you are "riced out"

If you bring a family you will be served family style with heaping platters. Prepare to take some home with you.

One great thing is that their take out is every bit the same quality as what you get if you sit there. i enjoy their takeout regularly when I am tired of cooking. If you have time, plan on eating there for a warmer experience, and on Friday and Saturday evenings they sometimes have Persian music, song and dance just to enhance the exotic flavors.

If you can stand the calories, enjoy the desserts such as Baklava, or Makhlout.

We went to the restaurant as a group of 8 co-workers. We ordered group platters that we could try a bit of everything. All the kabobs were delicious as were the various appetizers - fresh and authentic. We portions are huge so be prepared to bring some leftovers home.

One of my favorite Persian restaurants. They even offer entertainment in the evening during the weekends. Offers wide variety of dishes, including traditional khababs. Great place for lunch and dinner, be prepared to take leftovers home.
