I have eaten here over the years & usually get the daily special. This time my friend choose the stew the menu & so did I. Delicious. We had an excellent waitperson, the best ever there. I don't know her name but her family was from Oaxaca, Mexico. She was GREAT.

We have enjoyed dinner here for years. Always excellent, and the lamb shank is my go-to favorite.

It was very slow. Only a few tables. Our appetizer plate was missing items and I had to ask about it so we ate part of it alone after. I ordered a glass of wine and it took about 20 minutes to come out. Our waitress said that a manager had to go get it from a locked cellar. At the bottom of my glass was a bunch of sediment of some kind. My husband ordered an iced latte and it came out hot.
The quality of the food and service did not match at all with the check. It was mediocre overall and expensive. My gyro was very dry and most of the food was only lightly seasoned. The lamb and beef combo for the gyro tasted mostly like ground beef (kinda greasy and lacking that lovely aromatic taste of seasoned lamb) and my pita was so dry it cracked and fell apart.
The atmosphere and ambiance is very nice but the quality of the food needs to come up. We won’t be going back.

Despite a shortage of servers, the owner made it all work for everyone who had reservations including a large birthday party. Food was great. We had the lamb shank and moussaka, plus a large platter of appetizers. All yummy. Our server came in after a year absence just to help out. The bellydancer was the icing on the cake. She has been training for 7years and clearly loved her job.

Make a reservation!

Wonderful dinner and atmosphere! Our server did an amazing job, and the live dancer mesmerized our kids. Our only disappointment was the gyro meats and chicken kebabs were very dry. A low moment in an otherwise wonderful evening!

Great food, great service - there was a small hiccup initially but was quickly, graciously and professionally addressed. The owner is clearly passionate about customer service which can be a rarity these days - especially how business owners are struggling so during these Covid times. This establishment deserves all the business it can handle, you will not be disappointed! (Also - you need up upgrade your rice!)

The sample appetizer plate is a must. The chicken kabob is delicious. However the best part of the meal was the pomegranate martini and pomegranate margarita.

Nice ambience....excellent food choices and quality. Finally...a quiet...peaceful and relaxing environment wherein you can actually have a normal voice volume conversation. That alone makes this one of the most pleasant dining experiences in all of Albuquerque.

Our chicken kebabs were nicely spiced and moist - not easy to do. Rice was perfect. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Seating was comfortable and environment was serene. Prices were reasonable. What more can you ask for?

Quiet dining until the music for belly dancing came on very loud. Excellent food. Waitress very attentive and friendly. Tables spaced throughout large space and outdoors. More expensive than similar restaurants but nicer setting. Good for special occasions.

We love the atmosphere. I wish they would play their music all day and not only when the dancer is there. It's enjoyable music and makes the experience even more great. The service is great and food is very yummy.

Excellent food. Falafel like I've had in Turkey. The spanikopata was light and delicious. The Kabob Barg and Lamb Shank was melt in your mouth wonderful.

Terrific service, wonderful staff, nice ambiance. And lots of good hygiene and cleaning.

I am from Atlanta and visit a local Persian restaurant there from time to time. I was pleasantly surprised to find this restaurant within walking distance from my hotel as we were passing through on our way home. Our server was excellent, and the food was delicious. It was a nice quiet place; which I always appreciate. Highly recommend for a nice, equites dinner, good food, and a decent wine list.

Once you open the door, you are pulled into and authentic Persian home environment; a variety of seating options are given from traditional low seating to standard table seating and the wait staff are both knowledgeable about their recommendations and friendly, outgoing people.

Now to the food: authentic and varied, fresh and plentiful.
