    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.

    So glad Sufi's is close by; it's much easier to get to rather than traveling OTP on Roswell Road. Sufi's has reliable service, ambiance, and great food.

    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.

    Ultimately I enjoyed the culinary offerings- our server seemed a bit nervous and didn't volunteer any menu suggestions or convey a familiarity with the cuisine. I happened to be dining with a Persian friend so I got better cues from her about how to approach the menu.

    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!!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 3/22/2014
    While the food was good, it didn't "wow" me as have other Persian restaurants. The physical space was disappointing. We were seated next to the bathroom hallway where I was continually bumped and jostled throughout the eating experience (no dining here--they kept everything coming fast and furious ... Reminded me of basic training: "Sit, eat, and get out."). And the noise level ... My wife and I couldn't carry on a dining conversation due to the party of 12 whose cackles and shreaks were deafening. The whole experience reminded me of being in a Persian bazaar with the bumping, jostling, noise, and average food. The only things missing: good Persian tea/coffee and the aroma of hookahs.

    Excellent food, good wine selections, attentive staff. Had a great dinner with friends. We went on a Saturday evening for dinner. The starter consisted of Hummus, spicy roasted egg plant dip, cucumber with yoghurt, cheese with radish etc. The dinner was Chicken Soltani X2, Chicken Barg Kabab. The desserts Pomegranate cheese cake and Persian ice cream. Our waitress was very attentive, cheerful, and brought all dishes hot and quickly. The place was very crowded and a bit noisy due to the number of people. But overall we had great food and wine. Highly recommended.

    Food is on par if not better than Rumi's. Can't believe we have been driving past Sufi's all these years. So glad we ate here. Our new favorite Persian restaurant. Hummus was perfect. Just the right amount of garlic. If you like eggplant, the Sufi's Special was a perfect mix of spicy deliciousness, not too spicy, just enough to tantalize your taste buds. I liked it so much, I ate the rest with my meal. For our main course, we had the Soltani paired with the Sirin Polo. Oh so good! This is a must go restaurant! Cheers!

    I really want to like this place: the ambience was great, the service was good, and the wine was tasty. However, the food did not live up to our expectations. The chicken was dry and relatively tasteless. Also, the rice was bland the sirloin was rough. Unfortunately, I think that the quality of food matches the prices.

    We love Sufi's. We went there with five people celebrating two birthdays. The hummus appetizer was wonderful, with delicious pita and a plate of basil and feta and walnuts. The best entree at the table was the beef shish kabob with vegetables. Portions were generous and the staff were excellent. After the meal they brought the two birthday people a lovely dessert of Persian ice cream with baklava, and two lit candles. Hope to return soon!
