Someone here loves airiness, paintings in cheerful colours, dry flowers and a healthy sparseness. And someone loves to cook, too. The result is a pleasant, unpretentious restaurant that serves hearty, wholesome food at prices that are unbeatable, if you factor in the quality of ingredients. Almost all dishes are under $10, the few exceptions being double portions of filet mignon and chicken breast.
Main courses are all brochettes of some sort of kabobs of minced regular-cut beef or filet mignon, chicken breast or thighs. These are served with rice and a grilled tomato—pita, lemon and a raw onion are on the house. A recently sampled ghasemi, a puree of roasted eggplant, tomatoes, egg and garlic, was a tangy delight, a smoky, burnished dip full of oomph from the garlic and a hint of cayenne. Joojeh—skinned chicken-thigh pieces—were juicy from the lemon and olive-oil marinade and sizzling hot and golden from the grill.
