Truly one of the most beautiful restaurants in San Diego! Delicious food and the service was amazing! Highly recommended for a special evening!
Our server and the food are always great. The only negative was that the owner could not process the OpenTable Dinning Rewards I had saved for this restaurant :(
We liked the starters. The stew with lamb was a little disappointing, my husband loved his lamb though. After ordering the starters we it took as two attempts two inform the right person in the staff that we would love to order the main, the person in charge kind of ignored us or was too busy. But we asked one of the staff who came to our table but wsn't allowed to take the order and he still didn't came (I think because he wasn't told), we finally signaled the person doing drinks at the bar and we were seen....
Hi Eva! We are very happy you and your husband decided to visit us. We are sorry to hear you were disappointed by the lamb, though it sounds like your husband very much loved his? Your review is not clear. We have taken your other information into consideration. We hope to see you again soon. I hope this response encourages you to reconsider your public review. Thank you, Behrooz, Owner
Our waiter explained all the different dishes and made sure we did not over order. Two of us shared an appetizer and one main dish and had food to take home. It was a delightful experience to try a new type of food.
We love the food here. It’s a little pricey but the portions are HUGE. it’s also crowded on concert evenings so make a reservation!
Love this place. It is so close for theater going in DT SD. The food is always great (huge portions!) and good for the money spent.
One of the best restaurants in SoCal. Always consistent and fantastic.
Our first time here, and definitely not our last! The food was delicious! Yhr interior was beautiful! We ordered the pesto hummus, which far exceeded our expectations, the Bandar salad which was super tasty, and shared the chicken soltani.
The portions on all dishes were beyond gigantic. We shared all 3 plates instead of ordering 2 entrees and still went home with a ton of leftovers. The meat was so tender we didnt even pick up our knives.
Their bandar wines are very very yummy.
Decent service considering it was a very busy valentine's day weekend.
We cant wait to go back!
World Famous Chicken is Delicious!!!
They have changed. Service not good. Very noisy. Tables crammed together. Not the Bandar we have known and loved.
