living in sherman oaks, you have tons of choices for restaurants. last night (1-10-09), decided to dine at a local persian joint(fyi, i am not persian). never been here before. wow, nice upscale place. lo be hold, place is packed and they have belly dancers (wifey was not too thrilled) and live music. was there almost an hour and a half. great food, nice music, and did i mention, great food. this place serves huge amounts for the price; average plate is $15-$18. dont be price shocked. there is enough for leftovers. wifey ordered their house combo plate, came with rice, grilled veggies and two types of meat (ground and flat steak) and i tried their crunchy rice (tadig) with stew concoction. never have i tasted anything like this. supposedly its made with nuts and palmagranet. almost half was taken home. although not something i can afford to do regularly, def a place to consider to dine at if you crave a show with your dinner. \r
btw, bill was only $45 for two, included belly dancer and live music. a bargain if you ask me. best part, i have leftover lunch for today :)\r
only con is they did not have enough servers for a full house. but overal was extremely satisfied.
Pros: excellent mid eastern food, music and belly dancer
Cons: should hire more employees, but nothing to worry about.
