Never disappointsAte here 5 years ago and remembered it as a gem of a restaurant.... and it still is. Superb, interesting food. Great service and calming atmosphere. I will go back again..... soon.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeNeeded a place that could satisfy a group that contained foodies and vegetarians. From start to finish, it was a great experience.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday PartyThis was my 3rd time at Lala Rokh and I must say it was a bit 'different'. Don't get me wrong, Lala Rokh is by far one of the best restaurants I've been in Boston and never had a disappointing meal. It just happens that I had a bad grape in the bunch, i.e. our waiter. I do not know if our waiter was new or was just his attitude towards us but I was not really pleased by his service. I would have given a 'Fair' rating if it wasn't for the over the phone assistance I received prior to the event. It was a birthday party for my girlfriend and they were very accommodating to our part size (10) and special requests. Aside from our waiter, the guests loved the restaurant, the meals, and my girlfriend had a very special night6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMStill greatA Beacon Hill institution, still great and worth a trip.
Spices/flavor of food are well thought out, well balanced and the staff was extremely helpful in educating us about Persian food.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed our first visit here.Enjoyed our first visit here. Food was delicious. Ordered lamb which I preferred over duck. Roasted eggplant appetizer was addictive. Desserts were wonderful. Would come back again and think the kids might like it too since the dishes are paired with basmati rice.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMNo fun hereThe restaurant was nice and the food was absolutely amazing!! But we went for a friends birthday and even though we specified that it was his birthday, they did absolutely nothing. Also, our waiter was a bit rude and condescending. It's a classy restaurant full of adults and they seemed a bit unwelcoming to our group of 7 teens. We are very well behaved, but our waiter seemed to have something stuck up his a**.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMCreative menu, lovely interiorLooks tiny from the street but opens into comfortable dining rooms. We enjoyed the menu variety (as both meat and vegetarian eaters) and my friend liked the tea enough to order two pots.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurantI'm getting hungry just thinking about it. Terrific food, service, and atmosphere. Was in town for a family reunion, and it was the perfect place to catch up.

We were seated immediately. Our waiter was wonderful.....stayed close but didn't hover and answered all of our questions about the menu. We both like lamb and he made some wonderful suggestions.

Manager very helpful, made us feel at home,
Food is delicious and extremely sophisticated
Highly recommended3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLala Rokh--tasteful and lovelyThe food is fabulous and authentic (or at least I saw a number of Iranian/Middle Easter families eating there so that's my proof); and quiet which is a nice break from the noise levels that dominate other great restaurants. I may be old but sometimes it is too loud! My second time there, and since I love lamb-- I love this place! Food is well prepared; rice is perfectly cooked with a nutty dry texture and lamb was tender to the bone and perfectly seasoned. I even liked the eggplant in my dish--and I don't normally.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific food, quiet pleasantTerrific food, quiet pleasant atmosphere. I'd go again when in Boston.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
