A word from Shaherzad Restaurant
The quality of our food is excellent. We are very well known for our Beef and Lamb Shish Kabobs. We use all natural Filet Mignon, lamb, chicken and Cornish hen. We have an open oven to bake our very own special bread that is loved by all of our customers. We offer various appetizers, rice dishes and stews, as well as a wonderful selection of lunch specials.

    Meal was amazingly authentic. Service was slower and non attentive. Music was up loud and skipping, but was never corrected. Go for food, but not for other restaurant qualities.

  • My favorite Persian in Westwood

    Maybe it's the wood-burning stove. Maybe it's the freshness of the ingredients or the consistently good service. I go back often and will keep going back

    Awesome breads (house-made) and yogurts. We loved their herbs/onions/sumac appetizer. Very good food. Mush have tart cherry rice. If ordering an entry per person prepare for carry-out.

    Overall the food was okay and the service was really bad. For example our water was only filled once during the entire meal and it took them about 30 mins to take our order.

  • Best Persian in Westwood? The USA?

    Westwood Boulevard south of Wilshire has one of the highest concentrations of Iranian-Americans in the country. Accordingly, competition among Persian restaurants is intense, with all good and some superb. Shaherzad is in the latter category with food ranging from very good to sublime. Notable is the bread, universally, loved, the skewers, and the stews. If you are unfamiliar with Iranian food, it can be a bit overwhelming, but the servers are friendly and can usually explain things. We didn't like waiting near the door for a table, however, and would appreciate a bit more friendliness when entering.

    The food was wonderful. I had the chicken barg, and my husband had the chicken kebob with a special rice with orange and pistachios. Very tasty. We also loved the special bread, brought to our table straight from the oven. We enjoy this restaurant very much. The servers are very friendly and attentive, the food is always consistently good, and it is always filled with diners; we love the energy.

  • Waitress with attitude serving good
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 10/26/2012
    Food was good, service not so good. It did not seem that the waitress who served us cared so much to work there. She had an attitude of doing us a favor by serving our food order. Every time she was at our table ( total 3 times, taking order, serving food and at the end of our meal) she repeated " do you NEED (ehtiaj dareed) anything else" instead of " would you like to have anything else" ( mail dareed?). Perhaps she was never trained how to serve in a restaurant. I would like to emphasize the food was good.
