An Exotic Gem in Johns Creek!
A first rate persian restaurant. The food and ambience is first class and service impeccable. Must try the 1001 Persian Night Salad. I will back again and again.

A Great taste of Persia
What a beautiful restaurant with wonderful Persian food. Great atmosphere and comfortable for a large group or a romantic evening for two. The menu had many offerings to choose from. The eggplant appetizers were so delicious.The hummus was the best I have had in the area and compares to that which I have had in the Middle East. I loved the white table cloths and the live music was a delightful addition to our dining experience. Our server was very attentive. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning to try more items on the menu.

Excellent food, very friendly hosts
The kebabs were flavorful, moist and juicy. The rice selection truly amazing and the hosts provided a very warm and welcoming atmosphere. I am going back here again. Question is when?

An Oasis in Johns Creek
We came to 1001 Nights on Mothers' Day, and enjoyed a delicious meal in this elegant place. Even our most picky eaters were happy, and all the food was delicious. The specialties were a real treat, with subtle spices and unusual pairings of meat, fruit and sauces. The service was attentive and the restaurant's decor is elegant and calming in the spacious room. We will all definitely return!

Mothers Day Lunch was very good
We tried out 1001 for Mothers Day with 5 of us... Two adults and 3 teen agers. A very nice classy place. Lots of room and could easily host large parties as well. Nice round tables so you can see everyone in your party. We sat at a six top round table. Very attentive managers and waiters. My wife is a Persian food foodie and she really enjoyed it as well as the rest of us did. The portions are very large and easy to share or take some home. The flatbread was really warm and GOOD. I recommend and we will go back.

This restaurant was our first time trying Persian cuisine in Atlanta. We are a family of 8, including kids under 3, so we were pleasantly surprised to find that they do not have the usual "entertainment" that other Persian restaurants offer i.e. belly dancing, alochol, bar, etc. We were also really glad that the restaurant buys 100% halal meat from certified stores. We ordered a variety of food but the best turned out to be the Koobideh kababs both chicken and beef. The service was over the top nice and they made us feel very welcomed. The only complain is that its a bit too pricey for us, so we will only be returning on special occasions.

Very Lovely "NEW" Restaurant
Opened since April, it is not to be confused with the Persian buffet 'Simba' that preceded. A lovely refined restaurant nicely decorated with impeccable service. The owners on site oversee a good experience. On Saturday night they have beautiful live Persian music which adds to the ambiance. BYOB: There is no wine or beer "served"; however, you are welcome to bring your own bottle to dine in . The food was good - standard Persian Kabobs not overly seasons and a variety of rice dishes, the lentil soup divine, and the Persian ice-cream with saffron and rosewater very unusual and worth the taste. Baklava was very delicious! and with all the Persian families (there were two parties of 22 and 30 this Saturday) - it made it a great experience.

Delicious Persian food
Authentic Persian food. Both the Iranians and Americans in our group plan to return to this restaurant soon; the food was delicious! Leave room for some Persian ice cream if you can.

Delicious Authentic Persian Food.
We LOVED the food here and recommend this place!
The delicious appetizers came out quick. We enjoyed the Humus (may have been the best we had), the amazing bread and the Shirazi Salad (very refreshing).
The main courses were outstanding (Chicken Soltani and the Lamb kebob). Both were served with saffron basmati rice (yum). Also, a wonderful plate of fresh mint leaves, basil leaves and tarragon leaves to wrap your pieces of meat in before tossing into your mouth with a piece of flat bread (wow, what a difference the flavor makes with the fresh herb leaves mixed with the meat). Meat was very moist and wonderfully marinated and seasoned.
No liquor license will happily open your wine for a $10 cork fee.

Personal service and great food
From the minute we walked in the door, it was clear that the owner and the staff only focused on ensuring we were pleased. They brought us many delights to try while we decided on our meals. The food was outstanding. I had lamb and it was the most tender and tasty I have ever had in the US. The various rice dishes were perfect! As a treat, we were served some saffron pistachio ice cream to end our meal. The only word I can think of is PERFECT. We felt so special and will return often.

Consistently great food and service
We've been to this restaurant a few times now, and are happy to say the food and service started great and has stayed that way. The staff is always welcoming, and the food delights every time. Reasonably priced too!

Very nice meal
The food was very good, fresh, well prepared and tasty. Would be even better if they served adult beverages to go with it. A cold draft would have perfected my delicious vegetarian wrap.

Excellent food and service in Johns Creek- no longer need to drive the city for good Persian food. Kid friendly !!!

Wonderful food and beautiful decor
Great new middle eastern restaurant, very interesting a delicious food. Service was very attentive and they served a complimentary appetizer that was delightful.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had Chenche and Koreshte Bademjoon., One of our companions said the Khoresht was one of the best he has ever had. Chenche was tender and tasty. I saw somebody had complained about the portions however I thought they were just the right amount.

Really a neighborhood gem
This place is a fantastic experience. Combine amazing food, good friends and familiar faces from our neighborhood along with incredible musicians whose music is so good that the entire restaurant breaks out in applause periodically and you get the picture.

Wanted a Taste for Something Differ
Attentive staff, very welcoming. Ordered Hummus for appetizers and eggplant with caramelized onioons, Yum. For entree chicken kabob and friend ordered lamb. We had tea and ice cream afterwards. We did not feel rushed. Very good experience.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is good and consistent, but tends to be a bit pricey. Service was good every time. Front door kept open, brings heat into the restaurant. owner should avoid doing that.
the appetizer was skimpy at times (Mints ,walnuts, and cheese) compared to Rumi's and sufi's. Nice people though. Been there several times. like the live music
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food no beer or liquor
Very limited wine selection. But the food was great! We will go back
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were looking for a place which could accommodate a party of 20 and had a wide variety of dishes on the menu. The place was absolutely amazing, beyond our expectations! Food, ambiance and service were just perfect. Live music was a very nice touch!
I would recommend this place to anyone who likes good food!

A trip to middle east
The food plentiful and excellent. You do have to have a bit of adventure and taste things. We ordered familiar and un familiar dishes and were pleased with all. they do Lamb extremely well. the vegetable dishes are clearly marked and anyone who is a vegetarian will find much to eat.
the Persian ice cream was a unique and pleasant taste the waiter clearly told us what was in it when we asked before ordering.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
I would like to suggest that the portion of greens (Bread, cheese, butter and greens ) be increased. When trying to educate a guess how to eat, there is almost not much left for the second person to try, depending on the portion first guest takes.I highly recommend the appetizers and if you like eggplant, don't miss "Mirza Ghasemi" and "Kshk Badenjoon".
Kabobs are excellent.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
No doubt in my mind, this restaurant is great for all of the above reasons!

Best Halal Persian food in GA!
I brought my father here fir his birthday. The main reason I chose this restaurant it was one of the closest halal restaurant to my home. I was blown away! I had the best lamb I've had in the United States. Plus the service was spot on! It was elegant enough for any special occasion. We have already made plans on bringing out if town family members when they come.

Mom's Birthday Celebration
My mom is very particular about a restaurant's ambiance, so it is imperative we select a place that meets her standards, especially for such a special occasion as her birthday! Therefore, this place was very nice and acceptable for her. It wasn't outstanding, but it was definitely classy and appropriate for a Sunday lunch. The service was friendly - I think I have a crush on the owner. The serving sizes were very generous, and the food was top notch! We ordered the lamb, shrimp, chicken, and beef kabobs - all were delicious! I would definitely recommend everyone to try this place at least once...or eight times!

The food was delicious. And the rice selections were amazing. Enjoyed the live music too!

The Perfect Evening
The marinated tenderloin and the lamb are both to die for. It is so tender, no knife is needed. The aromatic spices add just the right touch and flavor. The service compares with food in promptness and courteousness. Though all of the waiters seem wonderful, our waiter Bahman was one of a kind. He guided through our journey in foods we were unfamiliar with and helped us to make the right choices. He was patient and kind and truly added to our dining experience. Carlos, our server seemed to "tag team" with Bahman constantly replenishing our water and checking to see if we were ok. He even held the door open for us when we left. The service has no end and the food will definitely keep you coming back for more. They even have a awesome band!!!

The place was perfect. The two man music group was fantastic. I thought the food was ahhmazing!!
It was a great night.

Excellent Food and Service
This was our first time here -- we came on Thanksgiving Eve with our sons who were home for the holiday. The food was excellent and sevcice was great. We will return.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
My brother and aunt were in town for the holidays so we decided to make a 6:15pm dinner reservation at 1001 Nights. The host led us to a table directly next to the only other guest there so we requested a different table. We didn't think that would be a problem however we waited over 10 minutes before anyone came to take our drink order. Apparently, they had chosen to stall until our the server who's section we sat in arrived for his shift. When he did finally arrive he was superb - well worth the wait and knowledgeable about the menu items. Three of us ordered the salmon kebob dinners and my aunt ordered the veggie stew. The food was as close to perfection as humanly possible!
