    My husband and I went to Sufi's for dinner. The food is great! If you are looking to try Persian cuisine, Sufi's is a great place to start! We started with the Sufi Special appetizer, which is eggplant and tomato dip mixture with good spice. For dinner I had the eggplant stew (khoresh-e bademjoon) and my husband got the Soltani kabob. Both were quite tasty. I ordered a mixed drink, A Kiss from a Rose, and it wasn't bad. A little too much vodka for my taste, but it was mixed with pommegrante and rose water, which gave it a unique twist for me to overlook the vodka. But my only concern is the space and large parties. There were two fairly large parties when we got there and my husband and I kept getting bumped into when people would get up to greet friends and family when they arrived. This also affected the service. When we were served, the waitress was alway pleasant and knowledgeable. But because there were large parties, we didn't see her as often as most people would like. I'm okay with this, because we were not in any hurry to go anywhere and gave us more time to enjoy food and talk. If you are a person who expects waitstaff to be by your table like a normal restaurant, please keep this in mind if there are large parties when you dine in this establishment. I believe the food and ambiance is worth it the visit.

    We enjoy Sufi's! We eat there for "Special Occasion" with our large family and for many other events. In the summer, we dine outside but it is very noisy so you have to accept that or go inside where it is a bit more crowded but certainly nice. The food is always the best part of dining at Sufi's. Whatever your favorite choice, it is always prepared the same and always taste wonderful. I have family and friends who come into Atlanta and will not leave without eating at Sufi's at least once. The restaurant has a perfect rating 100% so the cleaniness is second to none. The bread which is given plentifully is so good. The waiters and waitresses are as nice and as accommodating as you could get. We love Sufi's!

    My husband and I eat there for our anniversary. It was excellent and we really enjoyed going someplace different for a change of pace. We had the ground lamb kabob and the salmon kabob and both were quite good. The fragrant rice dishes are a real highlight. Well worth going.

    The four of us shared the Sufi's platter. It was perfect - we got to choose four different kabobs and three different rice sides - it was more than enough food. Lovely wine list, good service, nice outdoor seating ... it was just a flawless evening.

    We really enjoyed the food and the help from our server. We learned a bit about Persian food. However, the service should have been more attentive. I especially did not enjoy our server clearing the table by piling all the dishes right in front of me within inches of my face while I wondered if any of the leftovers or silverware would slide into my lap. Thankfully none did.

    We had a very nice, first time, experience at Sufi's. The Sufi's special eggplant appetizer was wonderful.....it had just the right amount of "heat". The salmon kabob salad was very good as was the ground lamb kabob. The shirin polo was outstanding. And the The portion size of our entrées was generous....we easily could have shared one. The service was attentive but not intrusive. The only drawback was it was very noisy. ..large party, concrete floors and very loud neighbors at the next table made it difficult to have a decent conversation.

    two of our 3 diners had to send their dinners back to the kitchen. they both had beef dishes which were too highly spiced and not to their taste. mine was very good - i had a chicken dish, but not the best. this was the second time we had been there for dinner, but we probably will not go back. lunch there is fine.

    If you choose places for the food then this isn't it. The kebabs were dry & had to be resent to the kitchen. They added more butter, but that only patched the problem for a short while. The shirin palau wad good & so was the naan bread, but the main dish at this restaurant was supposed to be the kebab. Service was great & so was the ambiance, but the biggest reason I go to places is for the food. Being that the location is near downtown Atlanta, they must have a high overhead, because the prices were quite high as well. I expected better for the prices they charged.

    Sufi's is a wonderful place to go with a group or a date. It is quiet, meaning you don't have to yell to be heard. The service is really good as well as the food. I went with a group of friends and there was something on the menu that appealed to everyone. All in all, the evening was very special and enjoyable. I will definitely go again.

    This was the perfect place for a gathering of women after an institutional event. The food was very good, though be aware that on Saturdays the lunch menu is not available and one must use the dinner menu. This was our only negative, since most of us had another dinner event to attend, and would have prefered a smaller meal. However, many of us went home with take home boxes. The service was superb. Our waitress was just right: friendly, helpful, attentive without be obtrusive, and able to deal easily with separate checks and shared meals. I would rate her among the best I have had in Atlanta. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience there.

    While the food was very good and the service was excellent, it does seem a bit over-hyped. The waiter "pushed" an expensive all inclusive type meal, and only when we said we were going to leave did he suddenly present other options. That soured the meal. But, the food was tasty. There are plenty of other great places to eat in Atlanta, so I can't really recommend Sufi's.

    A friend and I ate lunch at Sufi's this week and we decided to sit on the patio. Despite the 80+ degree temps, it felt wonderful with the breeze from the ceiling fans. We ordered the hummus appetizer (free with Scoutmob right now!) and it was amazing. I had a falafal wrap and my friend had a marinated sirloin wrap (I can't remember the Persian name for it). Both were delicious and came with generous salads. Definitely will be going back for more! Oh, and prices were extremely reasonable!

    I've eaten at Sufi many times and have always had a great meal. This last time was a bit unusual; the power went out. The staff handled it very well. Since the food is mostly cooked on a grill, they didn't really miss a beat. The wait staff is always friendly and accomodating, even without power. This is a great restaurant! My only complaint, bring back my favorite waiter, Austin. :)

    Our waiter Jose was amazing!! He definitely took care of us and was truly accommodating. The food was great. We couldn't decide between sea bass or salmon so we got both and shared. The sea bass was delicious and I definitely recommend trying it. The salmon was excellent. I would suggest substituting the rice however. Get the rice with carrots and orange peel in it (I can't remember exact name). I will definitely be returning to sufi's!!
