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.

great kebabs. lamb shish kebab can be more hit or miss over past year as place has definitely gotten more popular. Expect to wait at least 45 to 60 minutes for dinner delivery.

Ordered delivery from Ravagh last night- WOW! Hubby and I ordered the dinner for two- 4 kebobs (Barg, Koobideh-2, and Jujeh). Soooo good. The food arrived quickly- I would say within 25 mins of ordering. The meat was tender and flavorful- rice came with the combo platter and we substituted albaloo rice. Also came with 2 small salads and pita. The pita was also underneath the kebobs and soaked up all the wonderful flavors...the best part. As good as take out comes! We had enough left over for a generous, delish lunch!

Some of the dishes taste good, but the bad service has stopped me from going to Ravagh. I haven't been there in more than a year. For several years Ravagh has had a waiter (who may also be part-owner and is not Persian) who seems so disgruntled that occasionally I swear I could hear him grunt under his breath when we ordered our dishes. For a while they had a nice waitress, but she was replaced by a woman who is equally as disgruntled as the waiter. That's when I stopped going. Why be treated so awfully? Some dishes are good, but not so good that you should put up with mean-spirited, unhappy, feisty wait staff.

Portions are great and so are the prices. The kabob barg is the juiciest I've had in the city and the Kash Bademjan isn't bad either. The Ash Reshteh is to die for, and every time I eat it, it takes me back to the streets of Tehran. The most authentic Persian food you'll find in the city.

Very tasty ash and kabab. The eggplant khoresh is also excellent. Very lucky to have a Persian restaurant in this part of town (review for 30th street location). Another plus: it's cheaper than the expensive midtown Persian restaurants.

I love the food at Ravagh and get delivery from the 30th Street location at least once a week. I'll keep ordering, too, because it's so tasty. But, after each delivery I swear I will never order from there again. The order is almost always messed up. Ask for rice; they send you salad and pita. Ask for well done; it comes raw. Ask for mast & khiar; they send you mast & moosir. Order two torshi; get one. It's a joke. Every time I call, I give very clear orders ("last time you sent me pita, but I want rice. Please send rice this time"), and every time the order is messed up again in some new way. Actually, I take that back; the female hostess who answers almost always gets it right, but she rarely answers when I call. I get the guy, and the guy can't take an order to save his life. I've tried hanging up when he answers and calling back later, but it seems like he has the phone during key delivery hours, or he has some strange ability to know when I'm calling. If Ravagh folks are reading, please ALWAYS let the female hostess answer the phone for delivery orders. Nonetheless, I'll continue this abusive relationship: I know something is going to be wrong, but I'll keep coming back for more because the food is great. If ever a Persian restaurant opens up in my delivery area with similarly good food, however, I'll never order from Ravagh again. Until that day, I'll keep coming back for more, hating myself and them the whole time.
