very Good persian restaurant
very Good persian restaurant with very friendly staff- asked about recommendations about appetizer -- waitress recommended an eggplant appetizer -- we indicated that we were not a fan --- instead we had very good Grape leaves --- she brought a taste of the egg plant and we agreed it was outstanding It's called Borani --- will order next time that we are here.

Darya was a great resturant and their service was beyond exceptional.

While traveling thru Orange County, Open Table offered me the choice to go to Darya- and I was in the mood for something really ethnic and traditional. Persian food in an elegant setting with a really pleasant wait staff was at the other end of reservation. What a fun experience with great tastes! I will have to make a point to stop in when I am next in Orange County!

Best Persian Food in Coastal OC
This is our long-time favorite Persian restaurant. Mostly we order kebabs (beef, chicken or lamb), but we change it up now & then.
This time, the Salad Olivieh, a potato salad with chicken, peas, and herbs, became our new favorite.
The fish here is also very good. Service is usually attentive, but this time we had to flag down someone to take care of our bill.
A small matter! We always enjoy Darya.

I usually think of Darya as
I usually think of Darya as a dinner spot, but what a delight it is at lunch. They have lunch specials, as well as the regular menu.
I usually think of their meat as top-notch, but this time my lamb chops were a bit dry and slightly overcooked. However, the babaganoush is excellent, the tea is fragrant and aromatic, and the chocolate hazelnut mousse-cake dessert was superb.
While waiting for my lunch companion, I was offered a cup of tea or coffee, or glass of water - a very nice touch, and very welcoming!
This is still my favorite Persian restaurant in this area.
