Once waitress dropped off food, we never saw her again. My dining partner had to take his empty water glass to another server to be filled. I even asked a server that picked up our empty dishes if our waitress went home

Absolutely amazing!! I love that you can request a table on the patio (and they have heaters). Lots of parking behind the restaurant. The food was so flavorful and delicious!! Must have Chicken Berg and kabobs... Service was outstanding and our waitress made sure my friend had an extra special birthday celebration. Will definitely be back soon. A gem in the city!!!!

We were very impressed with the food - kabobs, stew and hummus - everything was delicious. The service was very attentive without being obtrusive, which is a fine balance. They also had a nice list of creative cocktails. I'm looking forward to eating here again, either on the patio or with takeout.

Sufi’s has always been a wonderful place for family or friends get together for lunch or dinner. We sat outside, which we love on the covered patio, however it is right next to Peachtree Road and the traffic noise is horrible.

I always go to Sufi's when I am in the area. The atmosphere is wonderful and the service impeccable. When it comes to the food, it is the best Persian food I have ever eaten. Will be back soon!

Service was what made my review a low score! We had a reservation and was treated less than. The food was phenomenal but the services needs works! If you come in with a reservation and your on time please don’t repeatedly say we close in 5 mins when it’s 9:30 and your website says you close at 10. Even if you have been slow all day! That is all I am going to say at least decline my reservation if that is the case! At the end of the day we spent 150 and tipped 20% end of story! So the fact that we were treated unfairly and that didn’t change our manners... it should be the same professionalism on your end; especially as a business.

Sufi's is still one of my top places I love to dine at when in town. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone who wants to have a full and savory meal. Everything is delicious (I've had about every app and rice dish listed) and it does not disappoint. The service is always top notch and friendly.

Great food. Socially distanced - it felt like a safe environment. Both the appetizer platter and Kabob platter were great. Persian ice cream was the perfect way to finish the meal.

Terrible service. One of the waitress does not know how to treat customer. Extremely disappointed with the treatment. Food is good but wouldn’t go back because of how me and my guests were treated. Extremely upset.

We were sat at 7:15, the time of our reservation. We did not eat our meal until after 9:00. It took 30 minutes before we even got water. 50 minutes for our wine. Management only staffed one server for the entire outdoor patio which holds 15+ tables. The food was good - once it finally got to us - but management did a very poor job of staffing and preparing for the Valentine's Day rush. We actually felt bad for our server. She was trying her best, but there is only so much one person can do! The phone was ringing off the hook the entire time due to on-line orders. Maybe if they were going to be so understaffed on a holiday they should have suspended their take-out ordering business for the evening? Our table just resigned ourselves to getting up and fetching our own drinks as well. All around, I'd give the total experience less than one star.

Aromatic and authentic. The dishes were delicious. We had lamb kebob and fessenjoon. Both served with saffron basmati, they were hearty and satisfying. The Persian hot tea is a must, fragrant and herbaceous. The baklava is unique as it is served as crisp flaky sticks (had to take some to go). Service was warm and welcoming. Atmosphere conducive to good conversation. A treat!!

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!

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!!!
