Persian dishes make you feel healthier just by looking at them: The cuisine relies on simple, fresh ingredients and lots of grilling—and you can sample it here in the form of flavorful kebabs. The standard lamb versions are available, but try the albaloo polo with jujeh instead: chunks of cornish hen marinated in lemon, grilled and served with basmati rice spiked with sour cherries. An appetizer of mirza ghasemi (a warm, smoky puree of tomato and eggplant) makes for an elegant, hopelessly addictive change from the usual baba ghanoush; the four sambuseh (fried samosalike dumplings) can be dipped in a fiery chutney. With a bit of luck, you’ll have the option of ordering the refreshing faloodeh (rice noodles mixed in crushed ice and rose water) as a dessert special.

Came here with my Persian friend to try this type of food for the first time. It was SO hearty, healthy, and delicious. We started off with a yogurt dip that came withthe yummiest bread ever, a combination of pita/naan with olive oil that was to die for.


We also ordered a fresh Mediterranean style salad of cucumbers, tomatoes, and feta. For my main meal i had the barg kebab, which came with rice and veggies. The steak was TO DIE FOR - the portions were huge and decently priced. Rose was flowing, the staff was super nice and helpful, and i just wanted to stay and eat forever.


Really delicious option if you like Mediterranean food and are looking for a hearty meal.
