Great Food...Terrible Service – Every few months, I fight the urge to avoid this restaurant. The thought of the great food overcomes my inner voices telling me I'm going to leave full but disappointed.
For the 5th time in a row, over the past year, I've gone to this restaurant and the food is terrific.
However every time I walk in, I stand there like an idiot while the waitstaff walk around for 5 minutes. Finally I flag someone to seat us. We get seated and then the buildup of anger begins. The service is so slow and terrible. I can't even flag down someone to take our order.
Meanwhile I watch as other tables are quickly seated, orders taken, and water refilled.
The only thing I can think of is that our table was always predominantly Asian and African American. While the rest of the restaurant "looked" Persian.
You guessed it, the only time I had great service was when I went with other Persian friends who spoke the language.
You draw your own conclusions.
Great bread and wonderful service – This place is great. The food is good and portions are very generous: I recommend one entree for every two people plus one of their specialty rices.
Try not to fill up on the fresh bread before your food arrives, but it will be difficult.
Parking is scarce, so get to Westwood early.
