From our very first visit the food at 1001 Nights Persian Cuisine has been authentic and consistent. The service is attentive, kind and knowledgeable. The dining atmosphere is warm and inviting. We've invited both friends and family to dinner with us here on several occasions. Afterward they become regular guests.

My husband's food was very good, I ordered shush kabob and it was so bland and tasteless. I would not return because I do not like this kind of food, my husband would return however.

We had the mothers day buffet and found it average. Meat was under flavored and rice was strictly ok. With so many high reviews we were disappointed. Service was below average and they charged 18% gratuity for buffet service. Given the choices that we have around we won't return to this place again.

Something for everyone! We had a party of 7 people all with different dietary requests: paleo, vegan, vegatarian, carnivore and young kids. I'm not kidding when I say there were choices for everyone! That is truly hard to find! The food was delicious and the service was great! Definitely recommend!

This used to be one of our favorite restaurants, we have been going since it opened. Unfortunately after many great meals they have gone down hill. The salad dressing was awful, my order was wrong, they remade the dressing but it was far to late. I am so sad that this has happened. The food was so bad that we will not be back it seemed rancid.

I talked with the owner but nothing was really done nothing off the bill not dessert, nothing. The service as awful, the waiter did not take our orders correctly and had no idea what good service was. It took forever to get our food, people that arrived after us were paying by the time our food got there and then it was wrong.

I am terribly disappointed as this was one of our favorite places I had previously given glowing reviews but that was in the past.

Very good. My wife and I had a very good Valentines Day dinner here. Was our first experience with Persian food, although we love Mediterranean cuisine. We had a fixed menu since it was Valentines Day so I can't comment on what their menu is like. It was a 4 course meal for two for $99. We had an unbelievabley great Eggplant appetizer. (Our favorite part of the meal!) Followed by a nice simple salad each. I ordered the meat kabob which came with a ground beef strip that was ok, but the tenderloin strip was great. My wife had the lamb kabob which I really liked also. Dessert was baklava that looked liked mini egg roles. I've had better but it was still good. A gentleman came half way through our dinner and played what I think was traditional Persian music which was cool.

We plan to go back, to explore the regular menu choices.

Very nice ambiance but I found the noise level of their very open area too high to hear people next to me at my table. I am Persian and love Persian cuisine but found their gormeh sabzi to be slightly burned and the kebab kubideh to be overlooked on the outside, undercooked on the inside. Service was good though but i prefer other Persian restaurants in Johns Creek.

I love all middle eastern food and 1001 Nights is one of the best. All of the meat selections are delicious (Barg, Kubideh)! Table is nicely set and the nibble food/bread they bring to all customers is refreshing. Service was good and the owner stopped by to see how we were doing. Highly recommend 1001 Nights on Medlock Bridge Road.

The food was OK. We got served some nasty spoiled cream with our coffee, other than that nothing special about the place. The really good thing about our whole experience that the restaurant is about 10 min away from the house, so convenient.

Our server was fantastic and the presentation of food nicely done. The reason why we gave the food a 4 star rating was that the appetizers were just fair. We had a selection of stuffed grape leaves (okay), falafel (too dry) and an eggplant dish (good). The kabobs were delicious, well seasoned and tender (we had salmon, tenderloin and a house specialty). The presentation of the rice options was pretty as well. It's fairly pricey for what you get but if you have a special occasion or are craving Persian food you may feel it's worth the price for what you get. Again, the server was fantastic and made it a nice experience.

The food was good, and the ambiance was nice. But our waiter tried to rip us off. My date asked for two kahbobs and a salad. That wasn't exactly on the menu but the waiter said they could do it. What he brought was the most expensive item on the menu. Thinking it was what she ordered we ate the meal. It wasn't until she asked another waited about a sauce on the table that we realized the deception. When we brought it to our waiter's attention he tried to play it off rather than make it right.
I went ahead and paid for the meal and tipped him well, but I won't be going back.

The food was tasty. We believe it was a tad pricey for what it is. $19.00 for a dish of hummus, tahini, falafel and chopped salad when most places charge around $10 for this dish and it was nothing exceptional to warrant this price. The shrimp dish was very good yet it was $23.00. These prices are for high end restaurants and this was not one of those! If the restaurant had better prices we would frequent it regularly and even bring friends/family to dine with us. It is a huge venue so I bet they are paying a lot of rent. Nonetheless, with more reasonable prices this restaurant could be really busy so they would be more profitable over all. We were there on a Friday night, prime time, and there were only a few tables with guests.

We love Persian food, and am so glad we made the drive up to Alpharetta to try this place. Delicious meal and lovely service! Friendly and welcoming hosts and wait staff.
The hummus and Shiraz salad starters were delicate and flavorful. The house made bread was fresh and hot - so good I could have just eaten that all night!
My favorite, koobideh kabob, was fantastic and juicy, moist. I had the combo and both chicken and beef were excellent. The barg kabob that my son had was also great. But the standout of the evening (according to my hubby) was his salmon kabob- he says it lived up to the host's claim that it's the best wild salmon ever!

The food is very good. The hummus is excellent. Three of us had kabobs. One vegetable, one Koobadah Combo, one Barg. There was no food left on the table. That is not because the portions were small, but rather because the food is delicious.

Roman was our server, he took good care of us.

Definitely the real deal. So positively Persian, I could practically hear my ghanom calling me from her window out onto the streets of Esfihan.

The food was delightfully authentic and the service was second to none. I will return to this place many times over.
