About Javan Restaurant
The Javan Restaurant was established in 1986 on the Westside of Los Angeles, California. The Persian Cuisine it offers is an authentic and delicate blend of featured dishes that represent the diversity of the provinces of Iran, each with their distinct and unique culinary traditions, flavors and food styles. It includes a wide variety of food and a diverse variety of salads, pastries, and drinks specific to different parts of Iran. Each recipe and the preparation of every dish in the kitchens of Javan is the result of first quality Meats, Fish and Foul delicately balanced and mixed with herbs, spices, nuts and Persian flavorings such as saffron, dried limes, cinnamon and parsley to make each mouth watering dish a unique addition to a royal banquet. Our chefs prepare each item on our extensive menu to promote healthy and nutritional eating without sacrificing flavor and taste.

Javan Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The staff was very polite and accommodating and the ambiance was quiet and relaxing. It was our first time trying Persian food at a restaurant and we really enjoyed it! The Ash Joe was very good, and also the Cornish hen chicken kebab. The somewhat exotic flavors were both delicious and refreshing. I will definitely eat there again, and highly recommend it to anyone looking to give Persian cuisine a try.
Food was very good, service also very good. It was quiet when we arrived (early - 5:30PM for dinner), but noise level gradually increased until it became a problem. We were forced to leave earlier than we would have liked, because it became difficult to hear one another.
Wonderful attentive, friendly and informative service. Top notch. Food portions sizes are large and food is wonderful. So flavorfull. Had the rack of lamb and it was tender and delish. House ice cream with subtle rose flavor is refreshing and wonderful.
LA experienced a power outage while we were there and they processed our payment via ipad and a clear handwritten check.
I have always liked Javan, and since we often eat the same kind of food in the Westwood area, we all decided that Javan is the best. The food was prepared and served well, and had a wonderful blend of flavors and ingredients, but was also filling. I loved the homemade lemonade, which was refreshing, and showed the little personal touches which place Javan as a cut above other similar restaurants. I'd recommend this restaurant and return to this restaurant often.
I was so looking forward to trying Javan after driving past it for many years. Some of my Persian friends had recommended it. the portions, especially the rice, were very generous. The cherry rice and raisin/lentil rice were particularly delicious, but you have to be a fan of dill, and i mean LOTS of dill, to like the herbed rice, which i didnt.
I was disappointed that the only fish dish on the menu was grilled on skewers, since many of my friends make a salmon or other fish stuffed with herbs, that is moist and fantastic. As with most restaurants, the skewered dishes were dry, both the fish and the chicken. i told the very nice waiter ahead of time that i was concerned that it would be dry, and alas it was. There was a very nice $11 chardonnay on the menu.
So in the end, it will be a long time before i come back. there are just too many wonderful restaurants in l.a. that know how to grill fish and chicken. i think that in large part this restaurant has a steady clientele of regulars and others looking for a reasonably priced dinner. But they could challenge themselves very easily and have a GREAT restaurant.
Javan was good but not one of the best Persian restaurants in LA. There's a large Persian community and we tend to go to a Persian restaurant each time we're in the area. Javan seemed more like an American version of a Persian restaurant. There are 2 rooms in the restaurant and no one in our room was Perisian/Iranian.
Persian hospitality is legendary and the caring service in this restaurant lives up to one's expectations. The decor is restrained, the sound level blessedly low with no intrusive background music. The menu includes many Persian standards and offers extraordinarily good value, particularly since most starters and main courses are large enough to be shared. Warm, freshly made dolmas, braised lamb shank and chicken faisenjan are standouts. The traditional appetizer of raw sweet onion and mint with flatbread was quickly polished off. Short, reasonably priced wine list.
It's a large space that was near empty early 6 on a Saturday night. I understand it does fill up so use reservations. Piano player was quietly doing his thing later incur meal.
I want more taste experience with those Persian flavors. Thanks to Javan for really turning us onto to some of them
Our waiter was way knowledgable and professional.
Love the favash, onion, butter and mint.
Beef was juicy
Chicken was juicy and flavorful
Portions are large
Too full for desserts.
Compares very well to Persian restaurants in L.A. and even the middle east. Portions were very generous, service good, staff willing to make accommodations,and pricing very fair. Food could have used a bit more depth of flavor. Seemed as if several of the cooked dishes were pre-prepared and therefore a bit mushy.
