    The shesh kabab is Super tasty and the rice is light, their portions is big so share, the spicy sauce is good. The appetizers isn't that good keep on the main course.

    The shish kabob is the single most delicious red meat dish in LA. It is tender, seasoned just right and melts in your mouth...if made medium rare. Get the house tea, and sprinkle the powder on rice.

    The beef koobideh is excellent it’s large enough for two meals. They bake their own bread. They serve beer and wine. There’s only metered street parking.

    Love this place. Some of my Persian friends tell me it's not the best in WW, but having tried them all, I somehow disagree. But what do I know.
