We wanted dinner to be a little different so chose the Dervish. A friend in the group ordered a appetizer sampler which we all shared. The eggplant dip/spread was great. The main courses were very generous and we all left with 'doggie' bags. Nope - sorry none shared with the pups tonight.

I love the service at Darvish. They are always attentive and kind. The food is all authentic Persian specialties and the portions are large. I sometimes get "to go" platters of their appetizers -- both of the eggplant appetizers are amazing! They have always been ready on time, and put in extra pita bread with nice portions. I highly recommend... More

Despite a strip mall location, I found Darvish to serve delicious food. The atmosphere of the place is a bit grim and perhaps the live music livens it up when it happens. I have eaten here twice recently and the place is mostly empty. I do not know why - the food is really delicious. I have had better Persian... More

I recently moved from Orange County where Persian and Middle Eastern restaurants abound and compete with one another. I was really disappointed with this restaurant. The food could be so much better and is not. Portions are okay but the taste and presentation af re just not what one expects for Middle Eastern food. There is a large population that... More

The food was not bad, though I've eaten better versions of Persian food in other restaurants. The ambiance was a disappointment, but the service was very friendly.

We chose Darvish based on the superior tripadvisor reviews but were a bit disappointed. We started with appetizers of hummus and stuffed graped leaves. The hummus was on the watery side, and grape leaves ok. There were four of us and we ordered 3 meals which we shared family style. We ordered a shrimp dish, a lamb dish, and a... More

Awesome! passed by this place for years before giving it a try and Wow! was I pleasantly surprised. Most meals have been great with one exception when it was obviously reheated from an earlier time. Otherwise I would give 5 stars. If you are getting the lamb dishes make sure they are well done.

I had the chicken and filet mignon kebob with saffron rice and it was perfect. Couldn't have been better. My daughter had the lamb shank "stew." It was more like boiled lamb shank with broth - no vegetables as I would have expected in a stew. The lamb was very tender and tasty, though. We shared our meals. My daughter... More
