Open since 1981, this Westwood landmark is one of the oldest restaurants in Little Persia and a place you can walk into any night of the week and find first dates, family meals, and friend get-togethers all happening at the same time. We’d rank their tahchin, a baked basmati rice cake layered with yogurt, saffron, and barberries, as an essential dish of the neighborhood, and their stew of curry isn’t far behind. It’s earthy, spicy, and something that’s not as common on neighboring menus. You can get the curry as its own entree, but we prefer to order it as part of the tahdig appetizer, which comes with crusty rice and another stew of your choice.
