Delicious traditional food, very fresh greens and nuts. I loved the lentil soup and the rose sorbet in particular. We were 5 people with different dietary preferences and all found the experience good. The atmosphere and the decor were nice too.
Hafez persian Restaurant
I've known this restaurant for almost 25 years, but I hadn't been here since 2019. It has a cozy atmosphere and friendly staff, although they seemed a bit inexperienced.
In the past, this place was known for being one of the best Persian restaurants around. However, I'm sad to say that the quality and taste of the food seem to have gone downhill. During our recent lunch visit, I found the food to be just okay. It really needs more attention to quality, and the flavors lacked the authentic seasoning I remember. It felt like the chef might not have been Iranian or perhaps was having an off day.
I genuinely hope they can make some improvements because they used to be outstanding in the past.
Great decor and excellent food! The bread was warm and fresh from the oven, just perfect. I also really enjoyed the hummus and the Kashk-e Bademjan and the hummus. The charcoal grilled kebabs were juicy and flavorful. The rice could have been better, but aside from that, it’s definitely a 5/5.
The food was nice for sure, but it didnt live up to the hype it had from some Persian locals. The Jujeh was a bit dry, the Barg wasn't the best. The kashkebadamjun was solid, the zeresh polo was nice as was the persian ice cream.
Normally I'm not a bread person but their bread is so crispy and thin that it keeps you eating with your starter (i ordered mashed aubergine with garlic). The combination was super nice. The Lamb Kebab was also great, the meat was tender and still juicy. Perfect to go with the saffron rice. I like their saffron ice cream too as seen from other reviews but would love to try the rosewater ice dessert next time. Overall speaking, it has a home feeling and food was great.
