Flower chains woven in gold thread crawl across the tablecloths at this quaint Persian restaurant, where the kitchen whips up great hummus and warm eggplant dip with baskets of thin pita. Occasionally, a detail gets missed—limp lettuce has been known to sneak onto a salad—but the rich basmati rice, juicy kebabs (try the ground beef and Cornish hen), and sweet, attentive service keep us coming back.
