“Wonderful food, great ambiance, can get crowded on weekends”
Reviewed 15 October 2009

I've been here a handful of times since the entrees are reasonable (about $15-25) both with family and friends. It gets quite noisy and crowded on weekends, so sometimes service is a little slow, but I have found the waiters to be very friendly when you're friendly to them. The restaurant looks to be owned by a family. The restaurant is very nicely decorated and is dimly lit to add to the ambiance.

Dress is generally casual although I've seen parties dress up for their night out. This place is fine to take small children or babies since the music + restaurant din can drown out some of the noise. The waitstaff gets busy, but again, if you're friendly to them, they can be very attentive.

“Great food but rushed service.”
Reviewed 6 September 2009

The food here s delicious. Unfortunately, it appears that unless you're persian, who can't get good service at this location. I have eaten here at least 5-6 times (because the food is so good), but I am always disappointed at the service.

The food was great here. The meat was tender and very tasty. Very crowded though, expect to wait.
