Time Out says

In the heart of Tehrangeles, Saghar Fanisalek’s fast-casual eatery serves some of the best Persian kebab in the city, minus all the bells and whistles. The simplified menu includes salads, wraps and a few homey dishes like tahdig (crispy rice) and ash reshteh (a vegetarian soup topped with caramelized onion, yogurt, and dried mint), but the primary reason people come is the kebab. Served with rice and a grilled tomato, cuts like beef and chicken koobideh (ground meat kebabs) always come juicy, well-marinated and perfectly seasoned, with just the right amount of onion. While the portion sizes here may not be as grand as other Persian restaurants, you won’t leave hungry. On Wednesdays and Thursdays, pairs can share the generously portioned Tehran plate special, which combines both types of koobideh with filet mignon shish kabab and full plates of rice and salad.
