    my favs tonight included shishlik, a rice dish (we had one with chicken & dates in it), the "special treat" dessert, choclava... but *everything* was tasty... go with 4 people & share everything.

    Lavash prepares some of the best Persian food in the Bay Area. The house doogh shows great attention to detail; the yogurt drink comes crested with rose petals and fresh mint leaves.

    The portions are generous; you probably won't be hungry afterwards. The bastani is an excellent dessert choice - light and very refreshing. Service was prompt and the waitresses are very friendly.

    Mint tea is excellent. Comes in a large, glass teapot with mint leaves spewing out. They accompany with a fresh lemon and sugarcane.

    Forego getting the regular white rice with your meal and substitute (for an up-charge) to one of the specialty rice dishes. Also,get your food served family style to save plates and room on the table.
