We really love the food but the service is always bad. I’m always nervous bringing someone here because of the service. I didn’t even want to tip my usual 20%. I can’t figure out why it can’t better. I wish they could get it right so that the entire experience would be enjoyable.

We had dinner here on New Year’s Eve with another couple. The food was delicious as always.
We enjoyed the evening very much because of the laid back ambiance of the restaurant.

We have dined here on many occasions.
The young staff was inexperienced and spent too much time talking in the corner that the owner had to reprimand them. The food took about 45 minutes to come out of the kitchen with three tables taken. She had the audacity to tell us that there were too many take out orders. Really?? Where,we certainly didn’t see them. Very disappointed

Consistently good service and well prepared meals. Definitely try a variety of appetizers. Our favorite mains are the Cornish hen kabobs, lamb chops and fire grilled steak. The stews are always well seasoned. Their baklava is not too sweet and is a delicious end to the meal.

A truly lovely evening! Even on a weeknight, almost every table was full—reservations are a good idea. The filo and feta ‘cigar’ appetizers were outstanding, as were the salmon kebabs and beef stew (the latter a tart, sour-lime scented delight). As my companion noted, they also have the best pita bread on earth, hot and nicely textured. Great service and a comfortable table rounded out the experience.

there were actually 4 of us - not 2 - but the 2 new people liked it as much as we always have.
the female belly is always very good, the food is always very good -but- the new waitress talked me into trying the stuffed pepper appetizer. it was really excellent.
another great evening (minus carlos !!)

a hidden neighborhood gem that is catching on. Mediterranean/Persian dishes that are flavorful and reasonably priced. Not to be missed is the Persian ice cream made in house.

We’ve been here so many times in the past and loved it ! This time we came back for Birthday lunch. Their service is still spectacular but the portions are smaller. They used smaller plates and gave less onion, tomatoes, no more pita breads in the plate. Not sure if they just wanted us ask separately or what but a little disappointed. My lamb and chicken were way over grilled and I had to cut off all the charcoal burnt while eating. We also ordered food to go and we were very disappointed to find out later that every piece of lamb chop was 70% burnt and we barely got to eat and enjoy them. If we are going back again we will make sure to tell them not to burn / overcook our food.

we have seen the place for many years -
knew nothing about it-
one friend heard 'it is good', so we went on tuesday.
guy on the phone was very nice - we got there a little late (no problem) -
wanted to try a turkish wine but not sure how it would taste so he gave us a small glass to try - then we got a bottle.
all of the food was excellent and all 3 serving people were great.
it is rare these days to find a new place that hits on all cylinders.

Found Sufiya’s on open table and decided to try it out since I was going to be in the area. We were glad we did. They offer a very nice prefix lunch menu. We started with the house salad and yellow lentil soup both were nice size and very good. Entrees were the lamb kabobs and salmon kabobs, again, both tasty and cooked to perfection. Our waitress if I remember correctly was Christine who was a gem and knows her business. We will return next time we’re in the neighborhood.
