Diner Reviews
  • "Everything my friend and I ordered was delicious, and brought back happy memories of meals we had when we traveled to Iran. Be sure to save room for the Bastani (saffron and pistachio ice cream). If you are planning to go here with a vegetarian, make sure they check the menu first, because the options are limited. "

  • "Maykadeh has been outstanding for the last forty years; this is an amazing record. We always put a visit to Maykadeh on our itinerary when we are in San Francisco. It never disappoints. This visit something else struck us: among fine dining establishments in this city full of hundreds, it is comparatively inexpensive."

  • "The food is just "OK" these days and there is far batter Persian food in the Bay Area. Besides, what kind of restaurant doesn't accept AMEX??? Totally ridiculous.."

  • "Unique menu, fair prices, incredible flavors, great service. The lamb tongue was worth traveling for. I didn't tell the family what I ordered as they would never had tried it. We all agreed that it was one of the dest dishes we ever had. The mountain oyster (balls) were o.k., had to try them once. The rack of lamb excellent and the filtet/lamb combo superb. The did overcook the lamb shank (hard to do) otherwise the food would have had 5 stars"

  • "I hadn't been to Maykadeh for about 2 years. I have found that with some well established SF restaurants that in that period of time,things change. I can say without question, Maykadeh is just as fabulous as I had come to expect. It is a restaurant for all occasions. I prefer eating there in groups so the many outstanding appetizers can be enjoyed with the fresh pocket bread. The seasonings are distinct without being overpowering. This time we had the Chelo-Kebab Koobideh and the Joojeh Kebab for our main entrees. The basmati rice was cooked to perfection. If you don't fill up on the main dishes, the homemade baklava is a great way to finish of a wonderful meal."

  • "We had a wonderful dinner. The flavour and quality of the dishes was superb, service was swift and friendly. The restaurant is quite animated and filled with groups. If you like Persian food you should go there, if you've never tried it it's a great place to start, they have all kinds of dishes, those suited for more adventurous palates and also those for conservative ones."

The good was awesome and prices can't be beat for the city. Great server and the valet was KEY fr Saturday night at north beach grant & green area!"

  • "This is a special place - great food, service and atmosphere. Order the 'Joojeh Soltani' amd go home happy. The appetizers are as delicious and exotic as they sound. The gormeh sabzi and fesen joon are also delectible. A side of tadig is devine as well."

  • "I HIGHLY recommend ordering the Jujeh kabob as a entree which is an extremely moist and succulent large serving of boneless chicken thighs marinated in lime and spices. Been coming here for many years & it's still my favorite. It comes with incredible persian rice which is long grained, fluffy & basted in saffron, a roasted tomato & asparagus as sides. We're also especially fond of the torshi which is a side dish of sour marinated vegetables that is hard to describe (sounds terrible but trust me, it's addictive) that goes over the rice and/or chicken and gives it a tasty pungent flavor contrast. Finally, be sure to save room for the incredibly decadent home made rose petal and pistachio ice-cream. The perfect finale to an excellent meal!"

  • "Have visited before, and again, impressed with cuisine. Good use of spices, lamb cooked to perfection. Wine paired well at servers recommendation. Good locals to go place friendly environment, recommend it highly."

  • "while the restaurant listed several vegetarian options, all they did was remove the meat from their listings-so a dish made with a soupy sauce and rice on the side was just a plate of side and sauce...no veggies at all."

  • "This my 3rd or 4th time eating here and it's good. The inside needs to be updated and refreshed...especially in such a competitive city as SF. It's looking pretty tired. Regarding the wine the waitress recommended their Pinor Noir to pair with the food and it went well. The staff is reserved and polite but not overly friendly or warm. The food is pretty standard Persian food. They aren't trying anything new or innovative but it's good and consistent."

  • "This Persian restaurant has really gotten better in my books. The quality of the food went up. They just need to work on the slow service."

  • "New Year's Eve dinner. We were a few minutes late due to traffic, but from what my wife told me, we almost lost our reservation. The restaurant was hopping. They made us feel rushed, like hurry up and eat and leave. Was kind of cramped as well, as the wait staff kept bumping into me. Food was ok, not great and not bad. Reasonable price though. Overall, I didn't enjoy the experience of it."

  • "We very much enjoyed the food, service and feeling we had at Maykadeh! We would definitely go back on our next visit to SF!!"

  • "Persian food I've had in a long time - and I eat Persian regularly, all over the country. Superb chicken koobideh and a ghorme sabzi (lamb shank cooked with onion, leek, herbs and dried lime) that was outstanding. Delicious cocktails, very good service. Will definitely return when I am back in the City."

  • "Our third visit to Maykadeh was very similar to our previous ones. Delicious kebabs and attentive/friendly/efficient service. Try the spicy chicken kabobs (Cumin-flavored w a reasonable degree of heat). For dessert, the Paloudeh is a great way to cap off a meat protein-heavy meal."

  • "The complimentary appetizer, consisting of basil leaves, radish and onion, used to include a piece of feta cheese. They no longer include the feta, which was nice. We had chicken breast kebabs, and lamb shanks, and all were delicious."

  • "A few of my Persian friends recommended this place to take my date, who was Persian. She thought it was really mediocre, and I'd have to agree."

  • "Pretty much the real deal if you're looking for Persian food. The lamb is terrific as was the salmon. We have become regulars."

  • "The kebab barg, Ghorme sabzi, doogh, and salad shirazi keep drawing us all these years."
