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

We dined at Sufi's while entertaining guests from out of town and chose the place due to its proximity to downtown atlanta, reviews on tasty food and ambience and halal certification. Ordered the Sufi's platter and this was a delicious combination of kababs and different pulaos. Asked to increase spice level but was not spicy. Service was OK with the waitress not knowing much about dishes or how to explain the persian menu. Ambience was ok as well, however we went in early (5pm)

A group of 8 of us went here on a Sunday night. There were people out on the patio, but not many inside. The waitress was absolutely delightful! So personable and made great recommendations. The food was great. We all really enjoyed it and those that had been to both said it was as good as or better than the other perhaps more well-known Persian restaurant in Atlanta with overall lower prices and a more casual atmosphere. We loved it and would go back and would recommend to others.

Great hummus and falafel! Entrees could use more vegetable sides/ small salad on side at that price (rather than so much rice!). Menu can be a bit confusing with little explanation of the differences between dishes. Overall still enjoyable and tasty!

even though they were a little short handed that evening with one server out they made the evening work well. The food was better this time than our last visit where the chicken kabobs were under cooked. I would go back for sure.

We tried Sufi's for the first time on a late Sunday afternoon after seeing Hamilton at the Fox theater. We parked, walked in, and the place was dead as a door nail and empty. Their were two tables seated and one screaming child whose screams filled the restaurant. We asked not be seated anywhere near that family but the greeter / waiter / bar tender said "We are a small place and there is no where to put you, except outside in the heat". Needless to say, we left and never ate at Sufi's as it was just not welcoming or inviting.

Met family there for graduation send off for my Niece, headed on a cruise.
Love Suifi’s but wish they didn’t have live music, it’s so loud that you can’t have a conversation without screaming. Music should be back ground only!
People don’t go out to eat to hear music, we go out to eat to enjoy the food and company we are spending time with.
