Village Voice's Description

This comfortable Persian restaurant-which translates as "village hut" in Farsi-offers some excellent kebabs, foremost of which are the bone-in Cornish game hen and a surprisingly tasty filet mignon, but more challenging culinarily are the oddball stews called koresht. The most sharply flavored features parsley, beef, and kidney beans seasoned with dried limes, while the mellowest melds yellow split peas and beef. The entrées are voluminous enough, so you don't need starters, but then you'd miss the Moroccan cigars (pastry flutes filled with ground vegetables) and the tomatoey vegetarian bread dip called matbucha.

Tips from foursquare

  • Bobby N. on 04/30/13

    Because their entree portions are extremely generous with rice and kabob, if you'd like to balance it out/mix it up a bit, you can have them do half rice and half Israeli salad, which is still great.

  • Ashley Y. on 04/23/13

    Appetizers were all good: Moroccan cigars, crispy rice, falafel, babaganoush (warning: it comes out cold!). Ordered the meat sampler to share and it was delicious.. my favorites were the koubideh.

  • Benjamin H. on 11/13/12

    Moroccan cigars are outstanding. Try all the flavored rices (except the orange rice - it's a bit too sweet). Service is very professional.

    Great Persian/Kosher Food

  • Sheperd A. on 04/18/10

    Worst service I've ever experienced. Half the portions of the great nweck location. We had to hunt down waiters to even get a menu let alone order food. two thumbs down.
