Restaurant Details

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).

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
