Yekta is a great, authentic, and cheap Persian restaurant. The food and service are always superb, and the prices are fantastic in a really nice setting. Try the koobideh with saffron rice; it's cooked and seasoned to perfection.

Went here with the family after my friend recommended it. Delicious food and wonderful service. The portions were great and we especially loved the hummus. I had the koobideh combination and enjoyed it immensely. We also loved the market that's right next door.
