Our lamb dishes were done perfectly (medium rare). The smoked eggplant was delicious.

Sufis was delicious! The wine and cocktails were great. The speciality rice is the way to go, spend the extra $3!

We ate early, 6pm, and had the patioto ourselves. I recommend the 4 kebab special. Price is discounted from individual kebab order and you can choose 3 special pilaf. We also got the 3 appetizer combo. The lamb kebab was our favourite. Service was impeccable. We will return!

Bargs come with too much ghee and upset my stomach compared to other places. Service was absolutely perfect from the server we got for our table.

We used to love this place--and visiting Atlanta 6 years after moving away were excited to try it... we love Persian food and used to very much enjoy eating here. We pulled up and and saw a tarpaulin over the roof--thought about turning back then, but persevered. Went to the ladies room and the sink was clogged--I don't even want to say with what. The food was awful. and my poor belly the next morning--I should have followed my instincts and not eaten anything... so terrible and such a huge disappointment. Oh- and did I mention I ordered a martini, which only came halfway up the glass. Awful!!!

The rack of lamb was horrible and they could not cook it medium rare. Service was terrible and the food is subpar. I have had much better Persian food in Atlanta, don’t waste your time and money on this overpriced place.

Loved this place. I had the lamb skewers and they were perfectly seasoned, juicy, and tender. Our appetizers of garlic eggplant was just a perfectly touch spicy. There hummus was great. Some traditional Persian music was played live and it created the perfect ambiance. Not too noisy so we could carry on our conversation, but loud enough so it could be heard.

We hadn't been to Sufi's for a long time. It was clearly our loss. The food was outstanding. Since Persian restaurants have such large portions, we opted to skip appetizers and order just the entrees. I ordered the cornish hen which was seasoned perfectly. It was also prepared just right. My friend ordered ground beef kabobs. It also was delicious. The portions were very filling so we took some home. We each had different orders of rice. I had basmati and he had an orange rice. There was no room for dessert. I neglected to mention that the bread was irresistible. We dined in the outdoor area which was very charming.
I highly recommend Sufi's. It was a wonderful dining experience, including the service.

Persian restaurants are my favorite in general. Sufi's is living up to this reputation. We were seated inside. There was live music, as well. Food quality is definitely worth the money. One negative comment is the noise level after a large group came in.

We had a wonderful time at Sufi’s with our entire family (12) celebrating our son’s graduation.
The staff is extremely professional and friendly. This was not our first time at Sufi’s and the staff always exceeds our expectations over and over. The food is amazing and awesome. Thank you, thank you so much.

good quality, flavorful without being overspiced. The restaurant was clean and neat -- not always the case around Atlanta. Friendly helpful service. One of our better experiences in the Southeast.

Sufi’s was a delightfully different dining experience. One we will definitely do again. The service was warm, inviting with the right amount of attention from the wait staff. The food was very good with some exotic twists. My spouse and I both had the shish kabobs (filet). The meat was very tender and flavorful. The vegetables were flavorful, as well. We had baklava for dessert. It was different from previous baklava and the best we’ve ever had. During dinner, a musician played an exotic instrument that produced music that I typically associate with the Middle East. We felt like we’d traveled far for dinner. However, we were only a couple of miles from home in Atlanta.

Amazing food and service as always! I would just comment that the host (a male) was lacking manners, scowling and very abrupt with guests. Gotta smile at your guests unless you're working behind a takeout counter. He was grabbing stuff off the table, throwing the check down, and rushing around the tables. Why didn't that affect our visit or enjoyment? ... Our server (Skylar), the young lady who bought dessert tray and the manager walking around were lovely!!!

Sufi's food was delicious and very vegetarian friendly! The only interesting thing was that my husband and I realized it was VERY quiet in the restaurant - there was no music playing or anything, so until it was a bit later and the restaurant started filling up - we felt like we had to speak softly.

Atmosphere and good food sums it up. The dining room was loud and festive. There was a musician playing a middle eastern instrument. Every once and awhile, the host would walk over and clap to the beat of the music. The lamb kabob was seasoned perfectly. The most pleasant surprise was the Adas Polo served with it. Who knew that raisin & lentil saffron basmati rice could be so tasty?

We love Sufi's and dine here often. This last time, the bread was cold and the condiments (basil, feta, olives etc) looked like they had been sitting out for a while- they were wilted/aged... other than that the food was good and experience was fine
