This restaurant is an Middle Eastern Kosher restaurant. The food was tasty. Got the shrimp kabobs & rack of lamb. Service was good even for V-Day when everything is more busy

our server forgot to bring us the silverware. The appetizers and the main course came at the same time however once of the main course was incorrect. I had to ask for a refill on my drink as he forgot. He was quick to deliver the check but forgot about coming back to collect the credit card. He was busy talking to another server until I sent someone to call him.

Great food. Their Kubideh Kabobs were simply mouth watering and sumptuous. I have eaten at many Persian restaurants before but I don't think I have had kabobs with this consistency before. It was an early Valentine's Day dinner for my wife and I and we both thoroughly enjoyed our Kubideh Kabobs; Mast Khiyar; and Badamjoun with the house bread. Would highly recommend this place for any occasion.

Very good spot! Was amazing for a nice quiet pre-Valentines date. The food was delicious and there were a lot of options. Ambiance was nice and quiet and everything was well spaced for distancing as well.

We called a week ahead, just to be sure they'd be open on Thanksgiving. Then we called a day ahead -- super cautious. Then we replied positively to Open Table's email: Yes, we'll be there. Then at 6:30 on Thanksgiving, Nov 26, we showed up at Sufi's and found a locked door and dark premises.
A call to Sufi's the next day brought their response: "We had only 11 people scheduled, so we cancelled." They then said, "We called everyone who had a reservation."
We got no call, no text, no email. We were very unhappy travelers.
We're trying again next week, because we love their food.

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.

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.

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!!
