After 4 years of dining at the restaurant and ordering pick-up or delivery, my opinion of Ravagh has consistently been that the restaurant produces good food at reasonable prices but falls massively short on delivery service. Their estimated delivery time on Seamless is never accurate, with quoted times of 15-30 minutes actually representing 90 minute waits. Recommended for eat-in or pick-up orders only!

I went here Sunday. I ordered the eggplant stew (bademjan) and it was pretty great. I've had it before and it was the same. My father ordered a kabab 1/2 chicken and 1/2 lamb mixed and that was pretty good too. I've been here at least 4 times in the past 4 months and every time has been pretty good. The prices are fair and all a round a great persian place. Also, they finally finished the renovations so the ambiance is better.

I think the prices are quite standard for any Persian restaurant anywhere in North America. The food is hit an miss, as is the service, but it is still my go to choice for Persian food in Manhattan.

well, after arguments and fights I finally got my finance to come with me to a Persian place, and we picked this one randomly.. it was the best guess and we loved everything we ordered.. was kinda quiet but good lighting and service. great kabab and always go for some Horme zabzi.. have fun!

My wife and I have been going to Ravagh for years and have put up with poor service at times because we liked the food. Today, however is a different story. We went in and noticed the entree prices on the menu were $1.00 or $2.00 less than what we're used to seeing. I asked the waitress and she said "it's the lunch menu". I asked if the portion was the same as the dinner menu and she said "yes", but seemed unsure. I then asked the manager and he told me "the lunch menu entrees are the same portions as a dinner entree, just less money". Well guess what, way less food for only a $1.00 or $2.00 less, depending on entree? To top it off, my food wasn't well done as I asked. They took it back and when I received it the flavor wasn't the same. In fact, all of the food today was bland. I also had Shirazi salad and a yogurt dish and those were priced the same as the dinner menu. So between this whole menu trick, poor service (which has been like this for years), and bland food I will try another Persian restaurant in NYC. It's unfortuante because it used to be ALOT better at one time. Eat at your own risk.

I used to go to Ravagh about once a week whenever I craved some good *Kabab e Barg* and that's basically what I almost always ordered, so I cannot vouch much for their other foods. As a rule, I stay away from stews, because they tend to be of a lesser quality than kabobs. With kabobs you can either order rice or rice & salad. This is all good, but in a recent trip to this particular restaurant (they have other branches in Manhattan) on 30th Street, I got less white rice than usual with his kabob and asked for more. The polite, friendly waitress brought more rice, but I noticed that they had charged a steep $5 just for the extra rice. Their prices in general have gone up all over the menu, but 5 dollar for a little plain rice was simply a rip-off.

I recently went there with a bunch of young people and along with the food we had two bottles of red wine. We unfortunately neglected to inspect the menu and assumed the prices would be reasonable. In fact,, counting taxes and "gratuity", the two bottles cost $171. The food was quite moderate, only around $120. I think it is most important that the restaurant make an attempt to stock reasonably priced wines and not rip their customers off on alcohol. They said that they had cheaper wines, under $30 a bottle, but not in stock! Lucky for them and unlucky for us.
