The Farsi cafe offered a really delicious food for us. The Tahchin was great! We enjoyed dining in this restaurant and definitely recommend that to others.

waited a while to be seated since the gentleman was on the phone just looking at me and not recognizing that he needs to have me sit at a table rather than continuing his phone conversation. The food and service after were excellent and will go back for sure.

First visit. I ordered the lamb shank. It was fine, but a plate of rice sure helps the profit margin! Destroyed the right side of my car trying to get into the parking lot. Oh, and then there was no refills on coffee! That's a first and I'm 81 years old.

Try another Westwood area restaurant soon.

Wonderful food, generous portions, good service but not hovering. Quiet when we arrived at 5 then bustling when we left at 630.

I reserved a table for 2 for a Friday at 9:30 PM. Upon reaching there, the restaurant was almost completely empty except for one table and we were told that they were closed. If you are not prepared for customers on a Friday night, then don't take reservations. What a waste of time!

Good good, ample portions (large!!) and good service. The waiter/waitress were very helpful, very accommodating, one small mistake of not giving one of us the rice we ordered, but not fatal. Water glasses refilled regularly. Very welcoming and accommodating. Food was tasty, the waiter guides you appropriately if you have questions or ask for suggestions (drumsticks or thighs for chicken, he recommended drumsticks as being more tasty and they were, so good suggestion). got us out in plenty to time to get to Geffen Theatre, when we told him we were going there.

Would return.

Happened upon this restaurant during DineLA and glad we did. The grilled eggplants and tomatoes with egg appetizer was unusual and delicious. And the sauce on the grape leaves was unlike any I've ever had. Our daughter was skeptical about the Fesenjan but was a total convert after trying it. Look forward to coming back.

Food was delicious although I’ve had better Tahdig. My date and I went for Dine L.A. week and they have a really good deal. Service was friendly although our waiter brought out our dinner before we even finished our appetizers. Dessert was the best part! Saffron, rose water, and pistachio ice cream was AMAZING! They also had live music which was really nice. Overall great dinner and this was the first time my boyfriend had ever tried Persian food.

I loved the service and the food. This was my second time there. I appreciated the neighborhood feel, the fact that the staff remembered me, the quality of the service and the food.

We had the tahdig with two stews, the gheymeh (with beef) and the sabzi (vegetarian). The tahdig, the crunchy rice from the bottom of the pot, was done with saffron and yogurt and was delicious. We had the salad Shirazi (which really needs more spices, please), and the mast moosir, garlic yogurt, which complements the kabab.

For dinner we had the kabab koobideh (ground beef skewers) and the joojeh (Cornish hen skewers), with two kinds of rice, the traditional basmati and the sour cherry albaloo polo. Very good. We supplemented that with the vegetarian fesenjoon, a dark, rich dish of pomegranate, walnuts and other mysterious yet delicious ingredients.

For dessert we had the traditional saffron and pistachio ice cream. Nothing like ending a good meal by fighting over dessert.

Good value, nice people, comfortable venue, love background music, two thumbs up...

So glad to find this neighborhood spot -- friendly service and excellent food, with a wide menu featuring a variety of Persian dishes..some familiar, others new to us. We were a party of 5 and enjoyed sharing dishes with one another.

amazing authentic Persian food with extremely large portions and felt bad we didn't have a fridge at hotel to save delicious and plentiful leftovers! Staff was friendly although at times inattentive. Once getting their attention they were very friendly and helpful.

Nice cafe in Westwood with tasty Persian food. Serving sizes were very large (more than we could eat). Service was good and very friendly. It's more of a family gathering place than a date place. The lighting was bright. I would go again.
