Everything was well prepared with ample proportions. Nice variety and options seemed very authentic.

Marjan should be on your list!
As first timers to Persian food, the wait staff was very helpful in directing our choices. Plate presentation was visually enticing to the appetite, and then came the delight for the palate! We ordered hummus and eggplant starters, followed by kabobs with salad. Would have lived to try the Turkish coffee but had to dash to the cinema. We will be back soon and bring friends!

Enjoyed it, but didn't win a repeat
Persian food is similar to other middle eastern, though less spicy and less saucey than others. We had basmati rice which was good, though not special. They charged too much to add ingredients to the rice. Speaking of cost, this place is byob which keeps the overall cost lower. That said, dinner would not be a good value without my $25 voucher. My cornish hen was tasty. Our filet mignon kebab was OK, though not special and a bit overcooked. The stew was a ripoff with mostly sauce, little substance. The grapeleaves app was excellent; nan was OK. Very pleasant though sparsely decorated, as I would expect of Persian. I'm glad I tried it, and I did like it, though would not return with so many other middle eastern restaurants to try.

Great place to meet friends
Great place to meet friends for a great dinner.
Everyone loved it and wants to go back.
Nobody we brought knew what Persian food was, or had any idea what to order. It was a lot of fun to explore the menu when the food was so delicious.

Thought the food was great-
Thought the food was great- we were here for restaurant week so we expected portions to be on the smaller side but we were definitely wrong. I have never recieved so much meat in a kabob entree, ever. In my boyfriend's chicken sultani there was probably about 7-8oz of chicken and 5oz of the kubideh (basically like gryo meat) with a hige portion of rice. I got the lamb kabob and liked that they offered a choice of rice or salad with the entree. The Kashk-e-Bademjan was very good, as was the wheat flatbread served with it, I do wish the Mast-o-Khiyar had more cucumber in it but the portion was huge and we had more than enough to dip our kabobs in. Turkish iced tea and the rosewater/pistachio ice cream was great. Baklava was a little dry.

For a ladies twosome night out & pre-show dinner, we enjoyed this place immensley. We picked this place but had NOT known anything about it except what we researched. Tiny venue, but because several people of enthnic origin came in, my friend & I felt validated that we'd picked a place where those who were most familiar with this type of food felt it worth bringing family, spending their hard-earned money & enjoying. What made this night even better is that we could enjoy our own bottle of wine. The coupon was honored without question & we definately will recommend and try again! We made a reservation & I would highly recommend that this be donhe because the space is tiny. Charming, but tiny. Nice people.

Marjan - great, delicious
Delicious, flavorful, interesting food! Highly recommended for lunch and dinner. Servers are knowledgeable and helpful. Vegetables on the side are delectably grilled (not steamed as the on-line menu still states). Great specialty rices, stews, kebobs. Fit for foodies, this place is a gem.

Great ethnic Persian Restaurant
This is a great ethnic Persian Restaurant with fabulous staff. I went with a group of Persians and they all said it was very authentic food and we had a great time.

A good addition to the ethnic
A good addition to the ethnic dining options in Moeeistown. Not too big and service was good. Young lady prepared to describe the dishes. Food was hot and very good authentic Persian cuisine even to the ground Sumac on the table. Worth more than one visit.

A Great Restaurant!
Marjan is terrific. Lamb kabob, shirin polo (basmati rice with saffron, slivered almonds, orange zest, and pistachio), and Persian ice cream (ice cream with rose water, saffron, and pistachios) all were delicious. The lamb was great quality meat — very tender, beautifully seasoned, and perfectly cooked. The rice was savory and delicious, and the ice cream was to die for. I can't imagine a better restaurant.

We celebrated a trio of birthdays at Marjan with a small group. This was not our first time at Marjan, we have enjoyed this restaurant on many previous occasions. As with every previous experience the food was outstanding, prepared perfectly, with all the subtleties of the Persian flavors and cooking techniques. The love and care that this family owned restaurants is obvious as every dish is served. Wonderful restaurant! Every visit is just as enjoyable as the previous one!

Shining Star in Morristown
We have frequented Marjan often, but not lately. Ventured there recently with "the girls" to catch up on our lives and relax. This place really fit the bill as we wanted somewhere we could actually hear one another's conversation, but still have a lively buzz in the room, great food, and BYOB - perfect! The food was even better than I recalled from some previous visits, and the staff is gracious, helpful and smiling. Marjan herself presides and it's definitely a family run place which I like to support.

Movie and Dinner
Marjan is right across the street from the HQ Movie theater and two doors from a store with a reasonable wine stock. Makes for a very convenient opportunity for a nice trip to Persia before or after a movie
