Went there for a relaxing hookah night. The hookah was not bad and the tea was good. Didn't try the food but it looked good. However the lounge was very crowded and the chairs uncomfortable. It also felt a bit closed up.

One thing I like for my visit was the cheeses. After 2 pm is not really good to come here until like 5 pm dinner time. The selection were little but the soup and beef kabob was good.

The restaurant is clearly popular with the big Iranian community in Irvine, as most of the diners were Iranian. We had their buffet which had a choice of 2 soups, a wide choice of salads, cooked vegetables, meats and sauces. Good value for about USD25...More
