There is plenty of parking and the exterior is nice with Persian cushions on the outside seats. The interior is very clean and modestly decorated with a few bits from the... More

There was also a food cart that had plates with food still on them just sitting out in the open, right near the bathroom. It was disgusting to have to walk past... More

I was concerned that I would not like the food here. The kebabs were terrific as was the bread and the rice. I didn't care for the eggplant dip because there was too much mint in it. I'm a purist. Likewise I didn't like the tea, also had mint in it. But that's my preference. The place is small but... More

a wonderful restaurant. Starting with the owner and host coming outside to tell us not to wait for our friend outside in the summer heat, but to come inside to wait. Maybe we got extra wonderful food because our friend is Iranian, but the food was scrumptious. Chicken kabob done perfectly, lovely spices (we happened to have a table where... More
