I went here with my girlfriend on a date. What makes review for Javan difficult was the hit and miss nature of both food and service. Kabob, vegetable, and tomato stews were very good. But the yogurt dip and cheese appetizers were not. The cheese was rather tasteless and yogurt tasted stale. The service was the low point. One of our appetizers was never delivered to the table (they took it off the bill), no one really checked on us during our dinner to make sure things were ok (they were not), and staple items such as bread was missing until we got wait staff's attention and specifically ask about 10 min after the appetizers were delivered. The restaurant was not busy at all with only 5-6 tables with clients. I think this might be a good place for regulars (the person who was sitting behind us was getting exceptional service) but not for those on the exploration path.
Javan never disappoints - especially since they've reinstated their orange peel almond rice!
Food was uninspired. Vegetarian options virtually nonexistent. With so many better Persian options on the west side, it's unclear why anyone would choose Javan
One of the best Persian food restaurant. Food is wonderful.
Excellent food, service and value
Delicious, lots of help with ordering. A lovely place
Consistently, a great meal with excellent service!
Parking is tough. You habe to find it on the street. Busy and loud on a Saturday. Server was pleasant. Food came out in a timely manner.
Rude waiter. That’s all I’ll write
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.
Good Persian food, very authentic in a casual and friendly setting.
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.
Was great and good food , good sevice
Not exactly like your grand mum would cooked for you but still cheap and good
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.
Celebrating my husbands acceptance into American Film Institute. He is from Iran and we had the most amazing experience! I cook almost all of the Persian dishes for him and the food did not disappoint! Great service and value! We will be back!
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.
Excellent Middle Eastern food. Great prices and service.
Delicious Middle Easter food. Great service, food and value something you don't find on the Westside.
Good food, nice folks work there but service can be erratic. Hard surfaces make it kind of noisy.
I enjoyed the food and service.I highly recommend it.
We always enjoy Javan, although this time it was a bit too noisy for conversation. The food and service were great!
Delicious meal on Nowruz. Got several different dishes and shared them and surprisingly with all the red meat we ordered the juicy chicken was all of our favorites! One of my favorite Persian restaurants in Westwood/santa monica! We will be back.
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.
Our party of 5 was very satisfied. The food was delicious, the beef kabobs were very tender, and the service was excellent. We especially enjoyed the Fesenjan entree, and the Bamieh dessert.
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.
Amazing, food is delicious!!! Friendly staff. I think it's the best in that area
Javan is always a go to restaurant for delicious meals. They offer a large variety of choices on their menu.The service is always excellent. We enjoy coming to Javan.
Excellent food!! We enjoyed our lunch. Our waiter was kind and attentive!! The best Persian food 🥘
Wife and I dined with friends this night. First time for them. Food so fresh and tasty as always. Server Vahid and team great service as usual.
Good service,good employees,nice place,good food quality.😃😃😃😃
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.
Great food and too many servers
Tried salmon kebab for first time. Very tasty. This is our go-to Persian place. No need to go to Westwood. Ambience is elegant yet comfortable. Team service outstanding.
Service was great. Food outstanding
Outstanding Middle Eastern food at reasonable prices in WLA.
Excellent Middle Eastern food. Great value. Friendly and professional staff.
The food was AMAZING! My cousin and I LOVE Persian food and it was so delicious. We got a bunch of things to share and try and it was wonderful. The service was excellent, as well. Friendly and attentative staff! I will be back next time I'm in LA!
The food was delicious and the service was beyond impeccable and into “do you guys think I’m with the mafia because you’re being so incredibly nice?” The drinks were delicious and the wine was incredibly cheap yet delicious.
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.
