Khayyam Restaurant reviews from OpenTable diners

    Khayyam Restaurant serves Persian cuisine, which is not so common in the Boston area. This makes it interesting. Otherwise (i.e. in terms of quality and service) it is a good restaurant, but not a truly exceptional restaurant.

    Interesting menu but the restaurant was totally lacking in ambience. No one was there and even with the nice staff it felt like a glorified diner.The Persian dessert was a joke, vanilla ice cream with orange drizzle that supposedly was saffron sauce, and it left a sour note on the meal. No reason to return.

    I was looking for a place not so crowded but that offer a good food for having a birthday dinner. The food was great and it was not expensive. The waitress was very kind and offer suggestion. It was a quite, relaxing place to have a nice dinner.

    The food was very good, although I didn't order the dish I had intended to order. The waitress offered to bring my meal back and have the kitchen prepare what I had intended to order. I ate the dish I had ordered and it was good. Next time I will order the lamb ribs instead of the lamb shank.

    Portions were large and food was very good. Although we were there for dinner, the lunch menu looked like a great deal.

    This restaurant had a good variety of Persian food. The kabobs were really well done. I didn't think that the swordfish was on par with the other offerings. Their wine list and drink selection was lackluster, but I guess that goes with the territory.

    A strange place. It is not clear that this business is being run seriously. I am not certain that most of the staff is even Iranian. Some dishes are pretty good, while others are mediocre. Soup that is tasty, but severed at room temperature was a pity. Spice levels were not what one would expect from this cuisine.

    The food was very boring and bland, lacked flavor. It's a nice spot, the food just needs to be a lot better.
