San Francisco, CA 94133
SF Weekly's Description
This longtime favorite of the Bay Area's Iranian expatriate community offers white-tablecloth dining, good service, and mostly very modest prices. The long menu allows several approaches to dining: a big spread of dips and other appetizers, most of which are vegetarian, served with a bottomless basket of hot pita bread; a selection of kebabs and rice to share family-style; or a homey one-pot meal, such as braised lamb's shank with eggplant. Offal lovers should make a special trip to sample the stellar veal brains, lamb's tongue, or braised lamb's head (bones and other inedibles removed, so it doesn't look like the cover of the Rolling Stones' Goat's Head Soup).
Tips from foursquare
Try the tongue, and don't fill up on the pita to save room for the lamb...
Try the spicy kebab - it’s awesome! Tip: take an Uber in North Beach for FREE (up to $20) anytime between now until Friday 12/20/13 using the promo code NorthBeachSF. (Excludes TAXI). #NBSF
Kashke bademjun and rice were very good. Get tadig if they have it. If u get barg ask for it medium bc medium rare was a bit chewy. Overall, go with kabobs here over stews.
Try the Spicy joojeh kebab
Lamb tongue is wonderful. Good taste and intriguing texture.
