I have the pleasure of having lunch at Yekta at least monthly. The service is attentive, the menu always has something interesting, and the soups are delicious. The staff is always willing to accommodate patrons. Tables are sufficiently far enough apart so that you can...More

Went for lunch. Excellent foods. The appetizers were great. The main dish, with chicken and beef were tender and well spiced. The dessert with Baklava and Ice Cream were quite tasty. Good service. Food came timely. Will definitely go again.

We come regularly, because the food is tasty and reasonably priced. The attractive dining area is small, so reservations are recommended. We had the smoked eggplant app and lamb and steak kabobs. The server was very friendly and helpful.

The restaurant is decorated very nicely and service was good. The zereshk polo was not prepared well. I think they had used smoked rice which did not do anything for the zereshk which was very tart. Usually the tartness is reduced by adding some sugar...More

I am delighted every time I go to Yekta. The food is great. Try the Barg, or Soltani, or Chicken. You can get it with Basmasti rice, salad, vegetables or some of each. Great appetizers as well. Try tahdig (crunchy rice) with a stew. Great...More
