Mrs. C and I were doing dinner with some out of town relatives and a few of their Iranian friends, and we decided on some Persian dinner action. There were good reviews for this place on the DH site, so we decided to give it a try. The restaurant itself was nicely appointed and clean, but the w/c was designed for elves or something (picture a phone booth with a toilet in it), and was way too tiny to be comfortable.
They had a very extensive menu of Iranian faves, and the menu was helpfully bilingual. For starters there was fresh pita bread and a selection of savouries. For mains, we had a variety of dishes including koobideh (BBQ beef skewers), chicken in a special sauce, roast lamb, and a nice stew whose name I can't pronounce or spell, but which had beef, lentils and eggplant. Each dish came with basmati rice and salad, although one in our group went with a jumbo salad in place of the rice. All were okay, but nothing worth writing to Tehran about. We also had doogh, which is a sour yogurt drink. Alcohol drinks were off limits for us because of our Muslim dinner companions, but the doogh was a good counterpoint to the heavy food.
Unfortunately, service was awful: First, our group was forced to wait on the sidewalk while tables were prepared in the empty restaurant. We were finally seated and then were left alone for 20 minutes without even a glass of water. Our server did reappear after that and took our orders, but she would disappear for long periods of time while we waited for her return. As for value, it was quite expensive, but luckily it wasn't my turn to buy :)…
In summary, the food was okay, but the rest of the experience convinced me to look elsewhere for my next meal.
