Consistently excellent food and pleasant atmosphere. A gem in Morristown that is quiet. Have been happy there for both business lunches and dinner with family/friends.

I have read great reviews about this place for years but every time I go by it, it is empty so I suspected a lot of false reviews. We eat out a lot and are very adventurous, we look to eat with the if it looks good eat it frame of mind. Then a friend begged us to try it with them so we went.

The waitress rushed us to order, not sure why it wasn’t very busy. She asked if it was our first time and we said yes. Then never asked us if we had any questions and got annoyed that we asked if there were any specials.

The food was literally inedible. I ordered a stew over rice as did my husband. Mine was “supposed”to be a lentil, chicken, walnut, and with a Pomegranate sauce, it was the exact consistency and color of apple butter (brown and no visible meat or anything else) except apple butter would have tasted better. My husbands stew was so grossly over seasoned with herbs that it tasted like someone grabbed a handful of grass clipping from a lawn mower. My main course was supposed to be Filet Mignon kabob, the meat was a long strip (hardly Filet) that was steamed, wet and disgusting. Our friends didn’t eat their meal either. There was nothing that would EVER make us think to try this again.

The food and service were excellent! My wife and I have never had Persian food before, but we loved the appetizers. We had the hummus, Kashk-e-Bademjan (pureed eggplant), and the Salad-e-Olivieh (potato salad), and we also loved our entrees. I had the Lamb Kabob and my wife had the Bademjan (sautéed eggplant soup/stew), which were both very tasty. I can't wait to go back and try more things off the menu. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone interested in trying Persian cuisine.

I was really disappointed with the food. The kabobs were dry and flavorless as was the rice. We were seated by the front window, too. CLose to another couple although the restaurant wasn't busy at 6.30 pm. I got the impression the food had been prepared in advance and reheated.

Really enjoyed the food. The wait staff were attentive and very able to give recommendations. We even were allowed to try one dish before ordering just in case we didn't like it (which we didn't).
Definitely not a quiet night out - it was full and pretty noisy but still possible to chat.
Portions are generous but not ridiculously huge which makes a nice change.
BYO helps considerably with making it a very reasonable cost option.
We will be back.

Wonderful, authentic Persian food, with a charming interior and a first class, welcoming wait staff. There is no wine or beer, but you can bring your own and they will cork and provide glasses at no extra fee. My only regret is that this restaurant is not in my neighborhood - I live out of state - because i would go again and again!

Remember to bring your wine or beer, but this was a really good find. Really varied selection with delicious flavors and spices. Our whole group raved about the shared appetizers and individual meals (loved the rice with sour cherries). Our server was fantastic as she took her time explaining each of the intricacies and meal choices.

Highly recommend and I'll be back!

Terrific! The food is fresh, flavorful and the menu has lots of different options. We chose the mixed appetizer platter - and you can choose the options. The flatbread served with it is warm and delicious. We also ordered grilled mixed veggies that were great! Service is excellent and we'll definitely be back!

Food good. Waiter seemed to be rushing us like we needed to adhere to an eating schedule. Then the loud vacuum came out as they were cleaning up 1 hour before closing on a Saturday night. We skipped dessert and got the heck out of there.

Went to Marjan with friends for a night out and wanted to try something new. The appetizers were very good - get the sampler and try three items from the list. Of the four dinners the lamb chops were the favorite for dinner. Don't skip desert - try the vanilla ice cream with the coffee in it.
It is a BYOB and there is a liquor store 2 doors down. The selection of wines is somewhat limited and a little on the high end of prices so if you have a good bottle at home, bring it.
Overall a nice night - restaurant is not big so reservations are a good idea.
Food is unique and enjoyable and the service was great.
