This restaurant is owned and operated by a lovely, hardworking couple. I’ve been here several times, and each time they were warm and friendly and welcoming. Not a fancy restaurant, but great tasting and good quality Persian food - Koobideh Kabab, Chicken Kabab, Vaziri, combination plates consisting of lamb, chicken, barg, kabab, chicken. They also have wraps, Lamb shank, persian... More

I've been getting food from Cyrus since they first opened. The shawarma is by far the best in town. Small, friendly and always served with a smile and greeted warmly at every visit. As I already said the shawarma is awesome, and the shawarma plate never disappoints. Parking can be a bit of a pain but it is well worth... More

I went for lunch assuming I was early enough (I was previously warned about being early) and there were 3 items already sold out! I can see why. We both got a chicken shawarma and it was delicious. I can't wait to go back and try more!

I feel that this Resturant is above reviews, it's amazing how a family can dedicate themselves to completely satisfy their customers. The owner/cook I am sure does not know me, but is so greeting and caring that you feel you have known each other for years. The atmosphere is extremely pleasent. The food is finger licking good, just simply above... More

My work friends and I have been going here for years. The food has always been delicious and Cyrus makes the best shawarma I've tasted. Family owned and run, so help support them! Best homemade hot sauce!

A friend introduced me to Cyrus a few years ago. I go every chance I get. the food is amazing, and the portions for the price are excellent. This is a great place for a quick lunch, or a sit down dinner.

Have enjoyed the food from this little local restaurant for more than six years and thought that they deserved a shout out. The owner is always there and one of the staff from six years ago is still there too -- and they remember my name even though they probably see me once every couple of months. We do a... More
