Reza's Restaurant Review:

This trio of big Persian restaurants serves bounteous meals at budget prices, and that keeps them busy. Family friendly, the place designed a menu with dishes that may be shared. Your best bet is to start 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. Desserts are only passable, but the bamieh, fried pastry sweetened with syrup, is worth a try. You can order most wines by the glass or bottle.
