I love everything in this restaurant. The chicken Kabob is amazing, so is any of the beef dishes. The rice is fluffy and done quite well. The service is impeccable. They serve the food with their own house bread which is soo good. Let's not forget that you also get the fresh herbs with the food. The gormeh sabzi is... More

That has minimal interior decorations. Which means more effort is on the food than the experience.I'm not going to claim to be an expert in Greek food because the closest Greek restaurant to TLH,Fl is 4 1/2hrs away , although the local Greek Orthodox church can throw a "Greek Food Weekend " that draws 20K people. On this visit, I... More

We stopped here at our son's recommendation, and it was a great lunch. They started us off with Sabzee Khordan (pita with a plate of fresh greens and feta) while waiting for our Kabob Koobeedeh to arrive. Sweetheart ordered Doog (a delicious yogurt beverage) while I had Iced Tea. The yogurt was yummy, but would have been too filling for... More

Went here last night with my uncle. Had the Jujeh Soltani (one Koobideh and one jujeh). It was very good. My uncle had the ghaymeh. They brought us "sabzi and paneer" which was great because other places always charge for that. The must-o-musir was thick and you could see the shallots too. Excellent.

My husband and i can never go wrong each time we come here. The bread is so excellent... freshly made. The kabob, lamb, chicken or beef are awesome. The servers are very friendly once you get to know them. I have been coming here for 10 years now and it never gets old. I always opt for half salad and... More

I recently stopped in for first time in 5 years. The place hasn't changed and the food is exactly as I remember. Still has the stained ceiling tiles and smudged glass but you look right past it to the authentic food. Excellent group lunch setting. Flatbread and koobideh -excellent.

My Persian husband is not easily pleased but this place delivers. Khorest is great, joojeh kabob is super soft and flavorful as with the koobideh kabob is perfect. Their salad Shirazi is also excellent. The tea and everything brings back memories of good home cooking. Top is off with a friendly and attentive staff...we have a winner!
