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.

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.
