    We're always delighted with the food and service at Flavors. We love Persian/Mediterranean food, and theirs is excellent. The friends we've introduced to the restaurant have also put it on their favorites list. The food is also very reasonably priced.

  • Strip Mall Find

    Dined on 11/9/2014
    For the middle of a strip mall, this is a find. Chic interior with lots of texture and color, very inviting. Service was excellent with a very knowledgable server who was attentive but not overbearing. Food was very good, but missed the mark a bit. Spices were just not quite right, leaving the taste a bit bland. It can't compete with the always excellent Rumis Kitchen, located just a mile or two away. I'd give it another try, however, as its intimate interior beats Rumis newish massive hanger space all day long.

    We went to Flavor with a few co-workers to celebrate our friend's birthday. As always, fantastic food, attentive service without getting annoying or too much, and the birthday dessert was out of this world. Although, we loved everything we ordered, my personal favorite for Appertizer was" Flavor Special". A little taste of true, high quality persian cuisine right here in our beloved Sandy Springs. YUM...

The wine pairings were excellent and the food so delicious. The service was impeccable. We'll definitely be back and won't wait so long next time.

    Oh wow, just when I thought there was nothing else I would like on the menu, I found a GEM. I tried the Chenjeh Kahbob which is a sirloin beef and Reshteh which is a Persian soup. Man, it was so goood. The meat was tender and succulent with just the right spices. I can't usually eat soup in the Summer but I tried it because it looked so good with spinach, noodles, and beans. It was all good. Highly recommend it.

    I've always enjoyed dining at Flavor and this time was no different. My friends asked me where I wanted to go for my birthday and since Flavor is my favorite Persian restaurant as their food is so fresh and is of great quality I had my birthday lunch at Flavor again just like I did last year. The complimentary tiramisu was amazing!

    Flavor Café is an awesome restaurant. Great food and service and good wine! We always enjoy our meal. The saffron chicken is one of my favorite dishes. The bread and scrumptious nibble starter they bring to the table with olives and fresh spices and a bit of cheese and nuts are always a hit. Every time we introduce friends to this restaurant, they come back on their own.

    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.

    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.
