Reza's Restaurant Review

: These big Persian restaurants serve bounteous meals at budget prices, and that keeps them busy. Your best bet is to go with a group and share, starting with vegetarian appetizers --- velvety hummus, refreshing tabbouleh, grilled potatoes in a buttery garlic sauce, falafel or stuffed grape leaves. Most of the main courses are kebabs, available individually or in countless combinations. Don’t overlook braised lamb shank, stews and anything in rich sweet-tart pomegranate sauce thickened with ground walnuts. Raw vegetables and feta cheese, pita bread, lentil soup and rice --- either plain or flecked with dill and lima beans --- come with meals. You can order most wines by the glass or bottle. Desserts are only passable, but the bamieh, fried pastry sweetened with syrup, is worth a try.
