Some of the best lamb and falafel I have ever had. This secret location restaurant hidden near residential area in Johns Creek is a must visit if you like Persian food. Our server was extremely kind and courteous as well as helpful in explaining the different dishes. I highly recommend this little neighborhood gem to you. Enjoy.

I brought my husband for the first time to try. He loved it. I always come with friends, one of which is Iranian. Her father, who lives in Missouri, orders from their market and loves their food. It's a neighborhood gem and I will always return. My favorite is the beef stroganoff. My husband had the Persian Rice Cake which was good. I am so glad I discovered this great spot. I highly recommend it.

Not at all the restaurant’s fault… but some careless parents (2 different tables) with unruly children (running around - moving chairs) and a screaming/screeching toddler (because one adult thought it’d be cute to play with them) caused some stress and unpleasantness! Otherwise, excellent as usual!

Do you want a meal at a welcoming table? Do you want to be treated with prompt service and a bread plate with beautiful olives, fresh walnuts, Persian cucumbers, feta and a selection of herbs?
Are you looking for eggplant stew with luscious lamb and intriguing spices accompanied by the most beautiful rice, redolent with saffron, you’ve ever seen?
Can you imagine finishing off with cardamom ice cream, rich, and a perfect finish to a delightful meal?
Run, don’t walk to the Persian Basket Kitchen, sit on the patio for quiet conversation, or join families inside, where joy abounds.
Persian Basket Kitchen is a rich experience. Don’t miss it!

Our new favorite restaurant in Johns Creek!! The food is wonderful and unique. The service is excellent and a great atmosphere. Neda is the best server and the manager is very friendly. They know how to make their customers happy! At the end of your incredible meal, you must try the saffron cardamom ice cream or the baklava cheesecake. Also, they have a great market next door with a wide variety of Middle Eastern foods, spices, teas, and baked goods. We will definitely be back!! Thank you Persian Basket!

This restaurant was a hidden gem. I was looking for a place to have a group lunch in an unfamiliar neighborhood and selected this restaurant based on the type of food and reviews. We were all impressed by the atmosphere of the restaurant and the delicious food. Aside from being delicious, the servings were large and we all took home leftovers.

Farid greeted us as usual! As usual, very hospitable and glad to see us! We were introduced to a new item on the menu (see pics): a delicious crispy saffron rice cake stuffed with eggplant: AWESOME! We ordered it as an appetizer & enjoyed it! The rest came home with us. Our main dinner was springer mountain kebobs & the Sultani platter both served w our favorite dill/fava beans rice! This is now, officially, our favorite Resto! Farid treated us to a cheesecake dessert… and great news: we have a lot of leftovers to enjoy again tonight! Was as also glad to meet Lisa whom we’re sure is a great addition to the staff.
Only ‘slight’ disappointment was that the 1,000 opentable points was not being offered, as usual, yesterday. Oh! well, we’ll definitely be back for more points and some of the greatest food around! WE’LL BE BACK!

Well done! This place is a hidden gem in Johns Creek. Let's start with the fact that $10 cocktails are an incredible bargain - - similar drinks elsewhere are $14 and up. The eggplant appetizer and the duck confit were outstanding!! And the duck for $10 would be $20 elsewhere! The rainbow trout and shrimp entrees were very good, just not at the outstanding level of the two appetizers. Only quibble is $26 for only 5 shrimp - - that seems quite high . Yummy baklava for dessert. We'll be back.

Every staff member was welcoming, warm, helpful, and accommodating. As a party of four with four different entrees, we were all pleased. Or two shared appetizers, hummus and an eggplant spread, were both excellent.

Dinner was fantastic. Mason was our server and he was great! We were a party of 4 and celebrating a birthday. For appetizers we shared the goat cheese with honey and quince and a small bowl of hummus with naan that was absolutely delicious. Off to a great start! For entrees we had the lamb shank (OMG), lamb chops, and the Saltani Kabob. Wow we were all humming throughout. For dessert we tried to just get the baklava but Mason insisted on also bringing a bergamot roulette with a candle for the birthday girl. Somehow he brought 2 servings so we took one home. We will definitely go back and bring more people next time.
