Such an interesting menu. The owner was patient, friendly and helpful, and he helped us select a variety of dishes to share. We particularly enjoyed the signature fish stew and the baby eggplant appetizer. We will definitely be back soon.

Persian food was new to us but we really enjoyed it and will be back. We had Aush Reshteh Soup and Basil, Kale & Lentil Soups to start then Koobideh Kabob and Lamb Chenjeh Kabob. The Aush Reshteh soup was especially good.

Near the lakeshore really nice area, the place has a nice soul, the food was great, had the lamb shank which melted like butter, it is in the pricy side though, but does worth it.
