    I booked a business lunch with an important customer and arrived at the restaurant to an incredibly noisy construction site right outside the front door. It was almost impossible to have a conversation without yelling. Obviously the restaurant cannot control the construction schedule but I should have been given some sort of notification or warning about the noise level. Very disappointed, this is usually such a great spot for a business lunch.

    All together It was alright! The food was good service was not as good as I expected. As a first time customer I’m not going to come back the reason is if I’m spending this amount of money I have more options to go to with better service.

    I was very unhappy they add 4% to my bill as hardness or cost of living charges. I have been at many restaurants in the area the whole week and these guys are the only place they did that. I complained and the manager removed it. I should not have to do that as many ppl do not pay attention or feel ashamed to ask about this charge. I think it’s a scam charge. I would have paid less tip by 4% if they did not remove it.

    We had a reservation for a group of 6 at lunch on 12/22. The place was super busy. We picked up a straggler on the way in but the very nice hostess/owner? accommodated our group of 7 with a great table. The food and service were spot on as usual with shared appetizers and entrees for all. This is our go-to place for business and pleasure. We look forward to many more visits in 2024.

    Rolled kabobs of beef and chicken were soft and succulent - just the way it should be. Service staff were attentive and flexible with the orders. A bit noisy for my taste, but the overall ambience was good. Will certainly return and recommend to others.

    1st time here after searching Trip Advisor for persian place next to our hotel. The place is very nice, located in a good area. The food was good and the service too. The only thing i did not like the extra 6% hardship charge. I wish I get 6% hardship myself :-)

    The food was bland and very overpriced. We ordered the combo platter which came with extremely small portions of three dips which were very average tasting. For mains I got the paneer kebab, and would not recommend anyone to get this. The paneer was rock hard and there was no flavouring or sauce to accompany the dish. Extremely mediocre food, for a high price point.
