“Fab home-cooked food and cheap!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

Awesome food. I've had falafel, but this falafel was killer. Home-cooked, authentic, and real. Delicious! And don't forget: because it's home-cooked, plan your time accordingly. I'll definitely come back!

“Persian delight in Twin Falls Idaho!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2013

The Persian Kebab is a unique taste treat on Blue Lakes set back in a row of shops. The falafel pita bread sandwich is one of the best we've had. The chicken kebab was well seasoned with delicious sides of pickled veges, cucumber sauce, grilled tomato & basmati rice. There is also a small specialty food shop with herbs and a large assortment of unique items. The owner/waiter/chef has been there for two years and is friendly and very interesting. We will definitely return when back in town. The decor is fun. Prices very reasonable and take-out is offered.

“Outstanding surprise in Twin Falls”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2013 via mobile

Discovered this little Persian restaurant on my last trip through Twin Falls and the quality, service and authenticity are all excellent. I had the red lentil soup and a combo platter with beef and chicken. The spices were excellent and the food was fresh and well presented. They also have a great wine selection at around $4-5 per glass. Michael, the waiter is very helpful and gracious. I suggest skipping the chain restaurants and giving Persian Kebab a try, it will be worth your while.

“Excellent food and service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2013

I tried this place last night and it is great food at a great price indeed! I am a latino man in his 40's who has been to Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Turkey so i know a little bit about mediterrain food and this place is good. I had not had persian food in a year or so and was very glad to see this place here in Twin Falls. I love the saffron bastami rice and this place has it for sure. Its not expensive, its just something different that is healthy and tasted good at a very good price. I love to travel and try different kinds of foods throughtout the world, i was here on a Friday night and WAS surprised to see the place empty and that alone can turn some people away but i say go ahead and give it a try anyway, i think you might like it, i sure did.

“Miracle in Twin Falls”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2012 via mobile

If you're not shocked—in a delighted sort of way—to find this restaurant in Twin Falls, Idaho (pop. approx. 44,000), of all places, then you're simply not paying attention. I approached it warily while passing through the state, certain it could only be a disappointment, offering an apologetic, watered-down version of Iranian cuisine. Imagine my surprise on finding a complete Persian menu, from koubideh to fesenjan to qormeh sabzi, prepared, as far as I can tell, with few if any concessions to non-Persian tastes. A refreshing treat for the road-weary and foodish—with a small adjacent grocery to boot. This stop may well make your day.
