I am very picky about Persian food. But I looove this restaurant. The decor, atmosphere is beautiful. The service is amazing. The food is delicious and they give you VERY big ...


The waiter was horrible; he had an attitude and asked me if I had ate food at any of the surrounding restaurants. I said yes I had ate at flame, and he said there food is sh*t rig...

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/7/2012

I live in Carlsbad, California near San Diego. I regularly drive my friends, family and business associates round trip to Baran in Los Angeles because ""they do Persian right"". The beef koobideh is my favorite with plenty of fresh onions served on the side. The wait staff is consistently atttentive an keeps me up to speed on menu changes. The portions served make every offering a price/value bargin in my opinion. more

Best Persian Food! And great atmosphere 12/11/2011

I am very picky about Persian food. But I looove this restaurant. The decor, atmosphere is beautiful. The service is amazing. The food is delicious and they give you VERY big portions. The best items on the menu are: beef kabobs, salmon with polo sabzi, ghorme sabzi, gheymeh with eggplants, lamb shank, and mast khiar. The tadigh is also great. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. I am shocked by the one star review... But I guess some people are haters. more

Great Food and Service!!! 9/28/2009

i was there on Saturday and everything was great! we ordered some chicken kabob, some beef kabob as a family style dish. DELICIOUS!!! our waiter was very nice and he was always there if we needed something! the only thing was, some more items on the dessert menu wouldn't hurt:) We'll be back soon! Pros: food, service, staff!!! Cons: dessert menu more

The worst persian food ever 9/17/2009

The waiter was horrible; he had an attitude and asked me if I had ate food at any of the surrounding restaurants. I said yes I had ate at flame, and he said there food is sh*t right. I was mesmerized, by the rude comment. Anyways, the koobideh was good, but it was not great. For the prices the that this place charges the food should be great. Other then that, we had to flag down our waiter to get refills on our soda, overall I would not come back to this place ever again Pros: The manager Cons: The prices, and the staff more

Very good everything, but strangely empty 9/8/2007

We just ate here for the first time and everything was great except that we were almost alone. It was very strange. The food was excellent and the staff was very nice. I thought the decor was pretty interesting and not ""cheesy modern"" like the previous reviewer. The decor might not be typical of this type of restaurant but it was nice. There was live music on Friday night starting at about 8pm I think - an interesting touch. Parking is easy as long as your car isn't too wide (park behind restaurant but VERY narrow ally)! Overall, it was great but it would have been a lot better if there were more people in the restaurant. If you want good Middle Eastern food with fast service and absolutely no trouble getting a table, try this. Pros: Food, service, style Cons: Being alone? more

Amazing beef koobideh 7/9/2007

This is a nice restaurant with the friendly waiters working hard to please you. We ate on a Saturday night and a musician was playing live. But most importantly, the beef koobideh was amazing. The shiraz salad was delicious. I also had the pomegranate/walnut chicken with lubia polo, which was just perfect together after a dash of hot sauce. To me personally, the decor is modern but cheesy. The persian calligraphy is stunning. Pros: Friendly staff, great food, easy street parking Cons: Cheesy modern decor more

high quality dinning with great atmosphere and glam 5/7/2007

For once the the decor matches the taste. Not only is this place stylish by so are the colorful traditional plates. Portions are huge and the menu is pages long with all the best middle eastern plates. And when you finish dinner you musssssst try somethign from the desert menu they have a huge desert menu. the food wass delicious and the service was great. My friends are alos fans of the exotice martinis that just got added thier happy hour menu. go with friends for a fun night out in LA more

Baran's all that in a bag of chips 2/22/2007

Baran's amazing. The food is great the service tops the food and on top of that the deserts are delicious and yet cheap. so for everyone who hasnt been to baran yet i strongly recommend it, its a must!!! Pros: goodlooking staff,food,ambience, service Cons: parking more

Wow Raffis finally has some competition 2/21/2007

well I decided to go to this restaurant on valentines day, yet didnt think to make a reservation (because usually you dont have to with persian restaurants) but they were all booked up so I had to settle for a week later. Me and my boyfriend went there and were blown away. The decor and ambiance is nothing I have ever seen in any persian restarant. The service was uncanny, every 15 minutes they made sure we had everything we needed (let me just put in that the restaurant was pretty corwded), I got the boneless chicken and my bf got the beef koobideh, food was great. Everything tasted excellent, the only thing that i wasnt feeling was the house doogh, it had a little too much nanah, other then that WOW!! So i reached the conlcusion that Raffis in glendale finally has some competition........ Pros: Food, Decor and service Cons: Parking more

im in love with a place called BARAN 1/31/2007

let me just tell you, after eating here, i say to myself, why would i ever go to SHAMSHIRI or DARYA. this is where it is at. fine kabobs, and the decorations, it looks like im eating in the persian version of paris. one of a kind service. and they have really cute hostesses (call me). Pros: great everything Cons: too perfect more

i loveeeeeed it 1/31/2007

Ok, so i went to baran with a few friends, and wow, i must say...the food is absolutely amazing! the stews are phenomenal. i love how the place is decorated, with a veryyyyyyyy friendly and good looking staff ;) i highly recommend this restaurant to everyone! it is by far the best Persian restaurant in the Los Angeles area...hands down! Pros: the foooood was great, the setting was very nice, i liked the music too Cons: could be a little bigger more

Great Ambience, Friendly Staff 1/26/2007

update: As of early 2008, Baran has had new management and different chef and has nothing to do with the sweet place before w/ yummy food. We avoid the new Baran as their stews lackgood taste and their rice is cheap quality. Pros: Hip Ambience left from old baran Cons: the original baran went out of business more
