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.

Food is the best in Atlanta. Not snooty, but still classy. Went to celebrate birthday. To a person, all agreed best Persian food they've had in ATL.

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!

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.
