    Went there for lunch with a colleague. Had reservations, so we were seated promptly; service was good; we both ordered the Chicken rolled Kebab; food was good not great. The place is very busy and you need reservations. Have gone there a few times and tried different options; Overall it's a good place for a business lunch.

    Food was ok...if you like left over Persian hummus, babaganoush and unseasoned kabobs. When I complained abt my kabobs not having any flavor...I was told that that is how they are made. I'm from the middle east and know better so was not only disappointed by the food but the sorry excuse I was offered.

    Greeted by a nice hostess were sat right away. We sat outside in the patio, it was a bright and sunny afternoon perfect for the lemonade we ordered. Menu was full of choices but we had to order the sampler appetizer platter and Prawn & avocado grilled salad (YUM!), and the chicken & beef roll luncheon saffron rice. The staff was helpful they spilt our main meal for us as. Wish it was not a working lunch then I would have ordered wine. The food was amazing.

    It's good if you're stuck in that part of town and want something different than the usual hotel food (steaks, American, Mexican, expensive salads). Their menu is mainly Persian sprinkled with Italian items. Our lamb/beef kebab combo and pomegranate chicken were very tasty but a bit on the dry side. We didn't have room for dessert, but the next table ordered tiramisu and said the center of it was still frozen! Frozen tiramisu?! That's so wrong!

  • Great food, server was a bit behind

    Dined on 9/26/2013
    Food was amazing, everything about it was unique. I'm usually wary of getting a pasta dish with a cream sauce because by the end of the pasta I have a massive amount of sauce left, but they used the perfect amount so that there was none left at the end but every bite was perfectly coated in it. Great ambiance. The only negative was our server seemed a bit behind, and when we asked about accommodating some common allergies (gluten, dairy) she seemed flustered & confused. In any case, we worked around it ourselves and really enjoyed our experience.

    Faz is great for a working dinner. It's not what I'd call a destination, nor do I agree with their own description of being "fine dining". The menu is predominately sea food with a Mediterranean bent. Near the bar the music is too loud, ask for the "Tea Room" for conversations in private. If you think good hotel food, you won't be disappointed.

    I have dinned at the location multiple times and have never been disappointed. My reservation always been accurately recorded and had never been kept waiting. I like their Mediterranean dishes as well as selected few Persian dishes. Wine collection is good and prices are reasonable. Special lavash bread is made in the restaurant which is tasty. Service is friendly and prompt. Location is easily accessible from 101 and 237 freeways.

    The food was average, the service was OK, the waiting time was a little long, but it's OK. But for the price they charge everything should be 10 levels better. We are not disappointed, but not excited either. We do not mind to pay the price if it's worth it. This one was an average restaurant you can find anywhere, and less expensive.

    This was a quite pleasant experience. 3 of us had a business lunch outside on the terrace. The service was efficient, (appetizers delivered as we sat down) as we had menus and drinks delivered promptly. The rice and kabobs were delicate and delicious. The chicken on my kabob was already removed from the skewer and moist, which is not always the case with kabobs. It was warm and sunny outside, but, there was plenty of umbrella protection. It's a great place for a business lunch, especially if you work in the Sunnyvale area.

    Our family enjoyed the Mother's Day brunch at Faz. The food was good, and adequate variety. We also liked the ambience: classy and not overly mobbed. The automatic 20% service charge was unexpected for a party of 4, and for a self service buffet. This added an addional $25 to the bill. Our watress barely spoke to us. I'd recommend Faz for special occasions only.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007

    Exceptional service. Food was good, maybe very good for a buffet. space is a bit limited, thus offerings are similarly limited. Also kids abound, most well behaved (I suppose this is to be expected on mothers day, but I personally hate it -- and I have kids) and the space is a bit crammed with tables. seems like a few more than normal. Overall a very nice brunch, though a bit pricey and the addition of a compulsory gratuity (for a party of three) is a bit much in a buffet situation. Having said that, the server was fantastic and was duly awarded an additional gratuity.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004

    We went for their special Mother's day brunch and made reservations on Open Table for 9:30am. When we got there they told us the brunch didn't start until 10, but that we could sit and have coffee, tea and juice until then. Disappointing, but not much we could do. Drinks would have been nice, except not a single server came by. We sat neglected for more than a half an hour until we decided (after seeing other guests eating) that the buffet must have opened. I had to pour my own orange juice after spotting it on a nearby counter. Also my husband had to go to the bar and get our (complimentary) mimosas, as we had a server come by maybe twice the whole two hours we were there. The food itself was decent enough, but the service, unsatisfactory.
