Lala Rokh, established in 1995, is located in the heart of the historic Beacon Hill, and is the namesake of Thomas Moore's 1817 romance novel. We feature Persian cuisine lovingly prepared and garnished with fragrant herbs and spices that we import directly. The recipes have been handed down from generation to generation to us from our mother who still tastes everything for quality. The restaurant is decorated with our family's one of a kind museum quality artwork. Our staff will do everything in their power to welcome you as we would to our home and provide impeccable service. Our specialty cocktails and wines have been created and picked specifically matched to our cuisine. Winner of numerous national and local awards by Gourmet, Zagat and Boston Magazine.

Some of the most delicious food I've had in a while! We got a bunch of small plates to share and everything was totally delightful. I'll definitely be back.

Delicious Persian food with variety of options for vegetarians, plenty of options for carnivores and fish lovers. Attentive wait staff and excellent service. Great location on Beacon Hill. Very good wine options by the glass and bottle.

Our experience at Lala Rokh was great from start to finish. We were welcomed warmly and seated promptly. Our waiter gave a very thorough rundown of the menu and provided great recommendations of what to try as it was our first time dining with them. The Persian Rose cocktail and various dishes surpassed my expectations. Nestled in the heart of Beacon Hill this spot is perfect for a date night and for the opportunity to explore Persian cuisine in a welcoming and family environment.

Excellent seasonings in beef, lamb, chicken and vegetable dishes as we introduced visiting 20 somethings to one of our favorite restaurants.

We waited for a while to be seated until we had to walk to the waiter to ask for seating. The waiter was excellent in offering tasting and recommendations for food

My boyfriend and I tried exploring Lala Rokh for a date, and we're so glad we did! Our server was amazing (very attentive, enthusiastic) and the food was great as well. The eggplant and shrimp for appetizers were delicious, as well as the two entrees (lamb and chicken). My boyfriend grew up in the Middle East and he said the lamb dish took him back to his mother's cooking.

First timers. Liked the low-key, relatively quiet atmosphere (we were in the back, but even the front part of the restaurant -- which is a little nicer in terms of decor -- maintained a low hum. Food was great, from the special zucchini soup to the beef kubideh to the duck leg. Desserts were OK, but noteworthy. Service was friendly and timely. Will try again!
