Very friendly service and delicious kabobs of all types. The ice cream has a very unique and delightful flavor. I'll be back the next time I'm in San Jose.

went there for lunch. Ordered Chicken Fesesjan stew. The chicken was just boiled and the sauce put on top. the meat is supposed to be cooked in the sauce. Their kobedehs were marginal. There are better persian restaurants in the bay area.

I lived in San Jose some years ago, and this place was a favorite local restaurant. Returning on a business trip recently I was pleased to discover that it is still here, and appears to have maintained its quality. Service was fast and friendly, and my chicken kebab was as good as I remembered.
