Definitely my favorite persian spot in the upper east. Yummy meal, filling. Their grilled meat is heavenly. I've had the lamb kebab and the beef skewers with the best Cherry rice on earth!

If you like kebabs - meat or fish - I would recommend Ravagh as a place to go to in NYC. Along with Basmati rice or even the warm pita-like bread, one could taste and enjoy quality meat. Will definitely visit again - even with...More
