Banu Persian Restaurant reviews from OpenTable diners
  • It's all about the LIGHT UP menus!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIP
    Dined on 4/13/2013
    The outside of this restaurant does not do the gem of a restaurant it encloses justice! This is the best persian restaurant in the valley so far! If the decor doesn't get you...the amazingly menus that light up will! All restaurants should consider carrying these! The food was amazing and we got to top it off with some hookah in their outdoor lounge! Such a great find!

    We had an amazing dining experience. We arrived before the crowd and had the place to ourselves so naturally everthing was perfect. We ordered the sour cherry rice, trout, baba ganoush and hummus. Delicious and reasonably priced. We'll be back!

    Small place on Ventura. Almost walked out as no one was there when walked in - had to turn my wife around. Boy did she change her mind! The manager was great - food awesome. Manager spent time with us talking about many Persian traditions. we all did kabobs, which were excellent. And their specialty rices - out of this world. Will be back again when we visit the area.

    The restaurant offers a unique combination of foods and ambiance. My wife and I have really enjoyed the dining experience. Service was friendly and prompt. This is a good place to dine when one is in mood for a change of scenery. We will definitely be back for more.

    My reservation was for eight o'clock PM. I showed up at 7:55pm, to a sign on the door that read "Banu Customers, The Restaurant will be closing early today, Friday the 16th at 8:00PM. We apologize for the inconvenience Thank You". Oops. So much for reservations, on OpenTable. The door was open, I didn't find anyone inside though.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 10/29/2011
    We were at the restaurant at a time where there were few diners. This allowed the waiter to be more attentive. I expect that the noise level and waiter attentiveness might be different at a time when the restaurant was full. Excellent menu choices. Very relaxing dinner.

    The food and service were great. We had Persian and Greek salads; they were both very tasty. Wish they didn’t put green bell peppers in the Greek salad though. Next time we’ll ask for no bell peppers. The beef Soltani was delicious. We’ll definitely go back.

    Great find! From the minute you walk in, you'll notice the decor is modern and elegant. Outside, there were 'persian'-like seating - really great and comfortable. The food was excellent, as was the ambiance. They even had live relaxing music with a singer - pretty cool. Hope to go back soon!
