Delicious Persian food!! Setting is elegant and intimate. We had the melt in your mouth Eggplant (Kashk-o Bademjan), Dolmeh and homemade yogurt with shallot to start each was delicious then we shared a vegetarian Eggplant and split pea stew.
Portions were large, service was excellent!!

The World Famous chicken as they call it, is really good. It's moist and delicious. The eggplant appetizer it's amazing.
The rice with dates it's a very nice combination and it tastes really good.
Service is very friendly.

It is a very elegant eatery that serves authentic Persian food. This place is also known for generous portions of chicken kebabs, which I always order when I dine in there for lunch. Their cucumber dip is so refreshing as well for an appetizers. These are my two must try food that one should definitely try. Don't forget that you should have a big appetite when you come here! If not, expect tourself to have a to go box after (which is not bad at all!)

Bandar serves extremely large portions of their menu items, all available for take-out. I grabbed an order of Zereshk Polo (Barberry Rice) and ate it on the top floor of Horton Plaza. When given the option of eating alone in a semi-swanky restaurant or eating under a quietly secluded rotunda, I'll almost always choose the latter... even if I am constantly surrounded by thirteen-year olds wearing oversized hoodies during the middle of a hot day, getting emo because life suddenly got too "real" now that ma and pa can't decide whether to eat at Panda Inn or Panda Express.

It's the hard choices that make life so challenging.
