I was there 3 times in last year and the food was always good. The place is small and very busy. Food is well cooked and prices are on average. The only problem I had: they never reply to email sent using the site format

The food was wonderful. Staff was very polite and helpful. The Brag kabob was the best. We had Gabe combination Kabob. It was enough for 4 people.

With some texted coaching from an Iranian friend in San Diego we chose Ravagh. The food was exceptional. The wait staff was very helpful at interpreting our friend's texted suggestions and turning the experience into a balanced meal the four of us shared.
