    My husband and I enjoyed a quiet, romantic and delicious date night. This was our first time at a Persian restaurant. Our waitress was most helpful in making recommendations. We shared an appetizer sampler accompanied by fresh-baked flatbread, goat cheese, fresh herbs and olives. For entrees, we enjoyed Soltan's feast and lamb kabob. The portions are very generous. We took half of each home, so we could save room for chocolate mousse bombe and pistachio roulade for dessert. These were expertly prepared and better than the pastries we enjoyed in Vienna. The herbs, vegetables and fruits were absolutely fresh and beautifully prepared. The barg (filet mignon) and lamb were tender and delicious. Flavor is true to its name.

    Flavor Café is one of the very best restaurants in Sandy Springs. It is my favorite "let me take you to lunch" place. Their chicken tortilla soup is not to be missed. You can even leave out the tortilla strips and still enjoy this luscious dish.

    My Mom kept telling me about this place and I was hesitant because I had never had Persian food before, but I am so glad that I tried it. I normally get the Chocolate Chip Cookies (very large and soft) from my Mom so I highly recommend the dessert here. However, I tried the dinner menu and was pleasantly surprised. The Joo Jeh was seasoned with good spices, tender to the bone, and even though they are small in size, they are very meaty. I loved it and so did everyone that was in attendance with me.

    I just had to come back to Flavor and this visit was just as wonderful as all the rest. I love how fresh the food tastes. Compared to other Persian restaurants, I can definitely tell the difference because the dishes here are so much more fresh and they are made with better and healthier ingredients. I recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to indulge in Persian and/or Mediterranean food. Their sandwiches and salads are really delicious as well. My favorite sandwich is the Chipotle Turkey.

    We used to come to lunch at Flavor a couple of transitions ago. We had no idea the menu was now Persian. Nicely redone to approximate the new mood, pleasantly quiet for sharing a meal with friends, attentive service who really want to help and of course good food adds up to a very nice evening. The portions are generous, salads huge. The chicken was excellent, the salmon very good but a little dry, vegetables perfectly done, chocolate dessert a winner -- we will definitely return--soon.

    I have been to this restaurant on several occasions and each time the service and food have been impeccable. I was new to Persian cuisine when I first came to the restaurant; but because of the good food, I love it now. Everything had a good taste and was light on the stomach. The rice with the Saffron is awesome. I will definitely come to Flavor again.

    My business associate had heard good things about this Restaurant and wanted us to try it. We went there for a business dinner. The restaurant is beautiful and noise level was pleasant and perfect for our business meeting. The food was the best Persian food I have had and the presentation and service was great. The prices are very reasonable for the high quality of meal you receive.

    Flavor is a delicious, pleasant surprise in Sandy Springs. Tired of boring, ordinary restaurents, We decided to give Flavor a try with some family members. For appertizer, we had Flavor special and Kashk Bademjon, they were both, out of this world. I had the Slotan's Feast for Entree', every bite was better than the last. This restaurant truly has it all, beautiful decore, excellent service and exceptional food. The best part is when you get the check. Very reasonable. Especially comparing to the other Persian Restaurants we have tried, like Rumi's which is unnecessrly, way too expensive and noisy. We will definately return to Flavor...

    Was in ATL for training and six of us from class with all different backgrounds went to dinner at Flavor since none of us have had Persian food and the menu satisfied all meals, types, vegetarian to meats. The appetizers were awesome and so were the main courses of our dinner. The staff was exceptionally nice and responsive. At the end of the meal, we all agreed that we would come back, enjoyed our meals, and was completely unexpected.

    Great discovery for us! This was our first dining experience at Flavor and we were very pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed this neighborhood gem. The decor is lovely with tables spaced far apart enough to enjoy privacy. The table settings were artistic and complimentary to the curves in the decor. We thoroughly enjoyed our food. The portions were large and the prices were reasonable. We will definitely return.

    I was looking for a quiet place for a business dinner and decided to give Flavor a try. We were not disappointed! Service, appetizers, drinks, food, presentation, environment and general attention were excellent. The place is really relaxed and they want to make sure you have a pleasant stay and great dinner experience without overwhelming the group trying to make sure everything is OK. My waitresses were taking care of everyone without having to call them. It was so good that I brought my whole family on the next day.

May parents loved the salmon and dolme. Everyone enjoyed their meal immensely--not a foot wrong, and I rarely say this. I can't recommend it enough!

    Having eaten here many times, we were very disappointed in the quality of the entrees. Appetizers were fine. Entree meat came out room temp at best, altho rice was steaming hot. Made me think the meat had been cooked way before and was just sitting. Also, it disintigrated into ground mush when eaten with very strange texture.

    I went here for lunch once and wanted to come back for dinner. Was still pleasantly surprised! You won't leave hungry that is for sure and if you love grilled meats that are tasty and tender and unique rices, this is your place. They have several Kabob dishes with several cuts of meat and spices. We started with an eggplant appetizer simliar to a dip and a yogurt dip served with fresh herbs and homemade pitas. The mains were a lamb shank and also their special filet kabob. Each dish had different rice accompanied with it. The desserts were also amazing, had the Chocolate bomb.
