The food is always good here, the quality is excellent and the staff are friendly. I recommend the beef Kebob as it is the most famous dish in Iranian culture and this one here is bang on!

It seems like every pic and item on the menu was not available at 4pm in afternoon. The restraunt is open till 10, yet none of the pretty pics of food on the menu were actually able to be ordered. 2 of 4 vegetarian choices were available. Food is very salty, tons of garlic and dishes watery. The food is... More

Good, tasty takeout Persian food. The beef kebab is quite good. Not the cheapest but I would say it's the best Persian in the area.

Our dining group came across this place by accident. It has a small storefront and is very unassuming. The decor is simple and very plain. Don't let that put you off. The food is amazing. Each one of us ordered something different from the picture/description menus on the wall (and there are ones behind the cash, which does not necessarily... More

Blundered into this place more or less by accident with a group of people - The Azeri owner was very glad to see us and gave us free barley soup to start. Both him and his regular diners were happy to introduce ourself to this new experience. I've had meat cooked on skewers in many places as part of many... More

I have been coming here for years. The owner is, rightfully,very proud of the food he offers. Everything is always delicious and I visit quite frequently. The food is excellent and prices are reasonable. Great value!

I went for lunch and tried the koobideh. The meat on the skewer is good, but there's no good choice for sides to accompany it. It's served with a ton of rice (without sauce) and a fried tomato, neither of which I found particularly appetizing. Also, at $7.99 + tax for lunch, it's a bit overpriced.

We have been going to Tah Deeg since it opened and the quality of food is amazing! Love the koobideh (ground beef kebabs) and the bademjan (eggplant and veal stew). Make sure to pick up the cucumber yogurt - it goes so well with it. The food is always fresh, the portions are large and the owner is a sweetheart.

If you want meat for lunch this place is it. I had the koobideh, two skewers of meat balls on a plate of rice with a drink for $6.99. My friend had the barg kebab, two skewers of beef on rice with a drink for $11.99. Both of these dishes were excellent. The koobideh was juicy with good flavour. The... More
