Tempe, AZ 85281
Phoenix New Times's Description
Elegant Persian cafe serving authentic Persian food. Fragrant, heaping platters of chelo kabob koobideh and joojeh kabob will help restore warm American-Iranian relations. The signature dish is zereshk polo, a special rice mixed with barberries and saffron. Try the homemade doogh, an unsweetened yogurt drink, but remember: It's an acquired taste. The Persian ice cream flavored with pistachios, rosewater and saffron makes for a charming ending to the meal.
Tips from foursquare
The chicken shish kabob is beyond amazing!
The fish fillet with rise amaizing ;)
really good food, get a lot for your money, for two entrees and 2 drinks it was $33 for both of us
Kabobs are nice but a little more expensive than the usual fare around Tempe. We had the chicken sheesh kabab sandwich (quite nice), Aash soup (recommended) and Skewer of Chick Koobideh (recommended)
Lamb shish kabab is really amazing
