Upon entering this well-appointed space only steps from the Cal campus, you’ll feel transported across the Caspian Sea to the Alborz Mountains of Iran. The combination platter introduced us to kashk bodemjan, kookoo sabzi and mast-o-khiar plus unbelievably fresh feta and herb-rich dolma. Shishkebobs of filet mignon, bell peppers and tomatoes were flavorful, but the more memorable dish was the baghali polo with lamb shank and basmati rice: The lamb was fall-from-the-bone tender and juicy, the plump basmati rice bursting with lima beans and fresh dill surprises. Lunch and dinner daily.
