When a restaurant is so big it practically takes up the whole block, and the menu’s as big as a book, there’s bound to be a few blunders. But if you stick to the basics here, you’ll be happy. The kashkeh bodemjan blends eggplant with sweet, caramelized onions, garlic and mint for an addictive spread. The chicken koubideh is a delicious, herbal kebab, and the fattoush is full of clean, sharp flavors. Skip the tray of mass-produced cakes, and go for the housemade baklava and Turkish coffee to finish the meal.

This is an iconic Chicago Persian restaurant. If you're trying Persian food for the first time, the buffet is a great way to taste what the cuisine has to offer. I'm a picky eater, and usually the buffet doesn't have what I want. I always just order from the menu. I've never been let down from the food that I've ordered. It's always been delicious, and a good alternative to my mom's home cooked meals. Their closing times have confused me in the past, I've tried to eat here a few times just to find out that they were closed.
