Five of us went to Pomegranate Kitchen for lunch. We didn't know much about the place, but we all love Persian food. It was absolutely wonderful. Mally is a joyful person who shared all kinds of information about the food and was very patient with us. We had lots of requirements due to gluten-free and other dietary needs. All our... More

We're big fans of Pom Kitchen. Mostly get her food at the Chapel Hill farmers market. Lovely lady. Lovely food. The Jewel Rice is to die for.

We stopped here on our way to Raleigh to visit a few museums, and it was a pleasant surprise! The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. We're all vegetarians and we had plenty of options. It is a small place, but definitely worth a stop!

I love to stop by and get a Jewel Rice, or Lentil Rice to go. Especially after a workout. Small place, only takes cash or checks, but the food is great.

Mally, the owner of Pom Kitchen, is one of the nicest people I've ever met. She is kind, caring and has a passion for her food that most other restaurants wish they could express. From the moment you walk in to this humble space, you are greeted by a happy, smiling face and "Bonjour Monsieur!". You may think Mally is... More

What can I say except that you will not be disappointed in this outstanding food. It looks good, the flavors are fantastic and so tasty. You don't want to stop eating. Can't wait to taste the baklava which we have been told is the "Real" baklava.

Pomegranate Kitchen is one of those places that I was hesitant about trying, but once I did, I was hooked! My favorite combo is her rice with the pomegranate stew... the flavor is so amazing, rich, and delicious! I've also tried her eggplant stew, but I prefer the pomegranate. I introduced some old coworkers to PK, and was so glad... More

Amazing Persian food. I had eggplant stew with rice, my partner the pomegranate & rice. Both were a taste sensation. Try the hibiscus mojito - nonalcoholic- a spicy & tart drink that was very refreshing on a warm day. Service was friendly & helpful. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Mally's kitchen feels like home. She loves everything she makes and does, I was an instant fan. We enjoyed eggplant stew, quinoa salad and the hibicus mojito. We're going to visit her at the Farmer's Market this weekend.
