The food here is the closest that I have come to my mothers wonderful Persian cooking. It's pretty damn good.
FYI, when you order a main, you should order yogurt to eat with it. Persians typically eat with a spoon and fork, so don't be surprised if you don't find a knife at the table. Also, if you order Persian tea they will give you a sugar bowl filled with sugar cubes. Traditionally you put a cube in your mouth, then sip the tea, not put the sugar in the tea. Yum!
I have been here a couple of times, and all the dishes (although somewhat limited) are authentic and delicious. If you want to try the most famous and favorite Persian dish, order the Ghormeh Sabzi. It looks horrible (green vegetables blended into a stew type dish, with kidney beans, slow cooked beef and dried lime) but it is so wonderfully delicious!. P.S don't eat the dried lime, it's extremely bitter and is just to give flavour to the dish, not to be eaten!
