I made a reservation cause
I made a reservation cause I heard how good Flavor was. I was blown away when we got there on Sunday and we were one of 3 tables in the restaurant. The food was fantastic. I would definitely go back again!

What a wonderful job that
What a wonderful job that was done on the update of Flavor. Always loved his food, but he has taken it up a notch. It is a neighborhood gem. So glad I decided to come back to visit and was pleased with what I found. Way to go. I have told all our neighbors and co-workers about Flavor. We now entertain our clients here as well.

Wonderful food. The flavor and marinades used were very unique and definitely worth coming back. The service was great. The server helped suggest items to order and explained Persian flavors. All and all the dining experience was awesome not to mention the pricing was extremely reasonable.
I am definitely going back!

Very Nice Experience
The food was delicious..had the lamb-kabobs and the salmon. The lamb-kabobs were very well prepared, flavored with fresh mint, nice and juicy,,,perfectly seasoned and cooked. The ambience was nice and cozy, nice background music. The staff was attentitve and courteous. A definite return visit is in order

Fantastic in every way.
My wife and I absolutely loved this place. Our waitress was great; very polite and attentive but not over bearing. We went with an appetizer sampler and the Flavor Salad. The sampler was great and the salad was really one of the best I have ever had at a restaurant. Our entrées were equally as good. I had the cornish hen and my wife had the lamb kabob. Both were fantastic. We shared two desserts, the chocolate bomb and some strawberry or raspberry cake. Again, we were raving. Between the fantastic service, the great food and portion, and the very reasonable prices, the place has definitely been added to our rotation. In fact, we went again the next day for dinner. Second time was as good as the first.

Fresh delicious Persian food. We keep returning. Always good

great persian restaurant
We have been to the other persian restaurants in the Sandy Springs area and Flavor holds it own with the other restaurants. They offer a selection of dips for the bread that are very reasonably priced for a sampler of three. We tried this restaurant as they were offering 1,000 open table diner points during prime time which was 7:00 on Saturday. Everything was excellent. Waitress recommended a cucumber martini which was amazing. Give it a try as i believe the bartender is trying to come up with innovative cocktails.

Fathers day Brunch
I picked this place because I wanted to take my dad somewhere that wouldn't be too expensive but that offered a great scene and great food! everyone at my table was impressed with the huge breakfast portions and delicious food! We even had a few clean plate members in our party haha... would definitely return!
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Treat yourself to Flavor !
My wife and I wanted to try a new restaurant for dinner. After deciding on Persian, we chose Flavor and we are very glad we did! The decor was at once elegant, yet comfortable and inviting - It seemed newly done. Most importantly the food was DELICIOUS! The shrimp were huge and cooked to perfection. The lamb was tender and moist.
If you enjoy smooth flavorful reds as we do, try the Alamos Malbec - Yummy!
We will definitely return and recommend Flavor to others. We rank it overall outstanding for the food, decor, and ambiance. These are the things we value most in a restaurant. Give it a try and decide for yourself!

Great Persian Food In Atlanta
The dinner came with an appetizer plate of assorted goodies - feta cheese, fresh mint and tarragon olives and cucumber. We have the must-o-khiar, a yogurt dip alongside it. The pita bread was nice, but nothing special. The food was wonderful. The sweet raisins in the khiar added a very nice contrast to the sourness of the yogurt.
For dinner, I had the Sultan's feast and my wife had the lamb kabob. We we asked how we wanted the meat cooked, which was different from other kabob places I've been. The keema (gound beef) kabob was fantastic. Not greasy and spiced subtly and perfectly. The barg (filet) was tender and slightly sweet. The lamb kabob was marinated with mint. It wasn't a very strong lamb at all. Best Persian in the area.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good food
We had a great time and the food was very good. The Dolmeh-Stuffed Cabbage appetizer was very good. I enjoyed my entree the Gheimeh Bodenjoon stew but we both liked my boyfriends Barg kabob the most.; The Saffron Pistachio ice cream sandwich was to die for. Overall we had a wonderful time.
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
First Time at Flavor...
Nice décor and feel...good service...excellent food. We brought our own bottle of wine. We particularly liked the Mirza Ghasemi dish. The booth we sat at had the benches too far from the table, but was easily adjusted. We will go back again, as we prefer small plates, shared plates and that type of food.....
7/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had lunch and had a wonderful
I had lunch and had a wonderful salad. The pear and gorgonzola salad with a scoup of chicken salad was yummy. There were craisins and almonds and a delicious dressing. We had a chocolate dessert that was also wonderful. It was a very nice experience and I would definitely go back. There was a nice menu with plenty of selections.
7/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went for my sisters birthday and none of us had ever been to Flavor. They treated us like royalty! The food was amazing and the service was wonderful! Can't wait to go back!
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great blend of tastes
I have been here numerous times with wife and daughter (13). Food is always superior and we keep returning because it's such a wonderful meal in every respect.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I ate there with my daughter and a former co-worker who are booth "foodies" and they LOVED their meal. Great flavor (no pun intended) food and a neat atmosphere. I'll definitely be back!
7/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
Worth a try
My wife and I dined at Flavor this past weekend.
My lam was outstanding. She ate every morsel of bread and rice that came our way.
Worth the trip!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Persian cuisine
If you like Persian food then this is a real find. If you have never had Persian food then this is the place to start. The kabobs are done to perfection - get the Juje (Cornish Hen kabob) juicy, flavorful and never dry! The rice is well prepared and the Fessenjian (a stew of ground nuts, chicken and pomegranate) is amazing. Presentation and plating are thoughtful. Portions are a little large for us - so you won't ever be hungry when you leave. Wonderful!
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
My boyfriend and I wanted to try something different and we never had Persian cuisine. I wish I could remember my waitresses name, because she made the dining experience that much more pleasurable. She knew we'd never eaten Persian, so she explained how to eat the plate of fresh herbs with the flat bread. Combining all those flavors...... I was in heaven from the 1st bite. She also brought out some crushed berries to sprinkle on our food. So not only did we get delicious food, but a lesson on a way to consume it for top pleasure!!
I ordered the lamb kabob, rice with flava beans,raisins, etc and he got the Koobideh Kabob. The lamb was succulent and seasoned so good and the rice was to die for. I will definitely be going back.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was very good. We ordered the lamb and chicken, and both were great. Full of flavor, tender and moist.
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
You may overeat
The food is great so, you may fill up fast! Pace yourself.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
First visit and we're impressed
This was our first time here and we really enjoyed it. The food was very good, the waitress helpful with our choices. We'll be going back.
8/16/2013 5:00:00 PM
The "NEW" Flavor
No longer just for breakfast, this former bakery should have changed it's name along with its menu, etc. This is TOP QUALITY middle eastern food done just right. Homemade bread, scrumptious hummus, incredible kafta, Flavor is just that---wonderful flavorful food served by people who care that its done right!
And watch out for the new, improved wine list!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Keep Coming Back!!
We found Flavors on Open Table and tried it. Boy am I glad we did!! The food is delicious, we had wonderful service and had some great wine!! Both times we were there we were not familiar with the wines, they just changed the list recently. The manager gave us a suggestion and we loved it!!!
If you like Persian food - you will love Flavors!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Flavors is Flavorable...
Excellent décor and very easy to access/park. Plates are small, with some biggish salads. You can BYO if you wish at $10 for corkage. Very comfy, staff friendly and do not constantly interfere with your meal once served. Not crazy busy nor noisy. We will go back regularly....
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice Persian restaurant - friendly!
This was our 2nd visit. We were greeted with a huge smile from the owner (?) or maitre d'. We sat in a booth and were brought good flat bread with a small plate of feta, mint, basil and tarragon leaves. We loved it.
I am a veggie so I ordered the veggie kabob with lentil and raisin rice which were both delicious. My husband had the Sultan's special with various meat and plain rice. We enjoyed our food and the very quiet atmosphere. Mid-way through our ordering process - they had to switch waitresses on us but that was ok. Everyone seemed very eager to please and extra friendly. The food was delicious....the vegetables were done just the way I requested them. I'd go back for sure - although it is a bit too pricey for me.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Splendid in every way!
Food was superlative - presentation flawless and flavors fresh! Service was attentive and knowledgeable.
9/5/2013 5:00:00 PM
Overall wonderful experience
Overall wonderful experience which was in part do to the attentive staff. An unexpected find, which we will definitely be returning to.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pretty restaurant - lovely service!
This was my 3rd time to Flavor since they completely changed to be an upscale Mediterranean restaurant.
I arrived at 6:30 and there was only one occupied booth. A few more people showed up. I wonder why more people aren't going? The prices might be a bit too high for a Sandy Springs neighborhood restaurant.
The service was lovely and my food was good. I had the vegetarian kabob with tofu and the special rice that has lentils and raisins in it which is very good. It's good...but I don't think it's spectacular. Something is missing...not sure I can pinpoint it.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Keep Coming Back
This was our 5th time to Flavor. We have tried several of the other Persian restaurants up and down Roswell Road and Flavor has become our favorite. It's not loud like some places or run down. The food is delicious, the wine list good and the services is very friendly and helpful.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
it was a sunday night and 7:00 (early for a Persian restaurant), so very quiet and few customers. our party of 4 enjoyed the peace and quiet. the food and service was very good, and our friends and we will all return. the rack of lamb is outstanding.
we were supposed to receive 200 points (it was a double points restaurant), but I think we only got 100. please let me know. thx.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Rename this place "Amazing"
We were greeted at the door like they wanted our patronage and wanted us to enjoy their food. That is a million points in my book.
Amir, our server, knew the menu well and blessed us with the very simple, yet, very tasty starter fit for vegetarians. My guest enjoyed the saffron chicken, and I the tandori. It was great. I love simplicity and establishments that treat food like the comfortable experience that it is. Flavor nails all that creates a good meal to me on the head.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
great find- best Persian restaraunt
we have had dinner at Flavors several times, and it is my go to restaurant. it is always delicious. It is so much better than the other Persian restaurant around the corner without the wait time. We love it.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
date night surprise
My wife and I were looking to try something new and interesting for date night. This little spot popped up on OT and we have it a go. I'm very glad we did. The appetizers were flavorful and varied, the entrees exciting, and even dessert was something we'd never had. The pistachio ice cream had enough rose water in it to be floral! A must try... we'll be going back to try the rest of the kabobs and Tandoori dishes.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Flavor has Flavor...
Bread is fantastic...mains are great: I loved the fillet shish kabob. Portions are not overwhelming, which is a big PLUS. We'll go again. You can BYO for a $10 corkage fee. Décor is really nice and the bar for waiting on one's table is tastefully done. We'll be making this a regular spot...
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
There are some really good persian restaurants in Atlanta - even in Sandy Springs - but Flavor certainly tops them all!!! Certainly worth the prices!
Just wish the name of the restaurant would actually give a hint that this is Persian dining...:)
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Food Good Service
We choose this restaurant due to the great reviews. We were not disappointed. We met friends and had a wonderful dinner. The appetizers were very good and the it was quiet in the restaurant, which made it a great place to talk. We would definitely visit again.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Flavor is tasteful....
It's beyond me why Flavor isn't brimming with tons of people each night. It's a bit quiet at times, but very well laid out. You can BYO for a small corkage charge. The food is excellent and excellently cooked, the service very good, friendly, but not in your face. Hey Sandy Springs, Buckhead and North I285 folks, check it out on line and get over there!
