The spacious restaurant is great for groups.
Andersonville spot attracts groups and couples with its wide variety of Mediterranean specialties. – In Short
This lively restaurant offers an extensive menu of nearly 50 options. Hummus, baba ghanoush and falafel are favorite starters. Persian soup is a combination of kidney beans, lentils, chickpeas, noodles and mint in a yogurt-based broth. Entree highlights include two huge lamb shanks dripping with tomato-based sauce, plus fessenjan, a Cornish hen that is simmered in sweet-and-sour pomegranate sauce with finely crushed walnuts.
Been going to reza's for fifteen years! – I have been dining in or ordering delivery from Reza's for fifteen years, I have even dined with Reza himself. The quality, consistency and portions have never changed. Reza's is an excellent place to introduce someone to mediterranean food. The meat is especially good on summer nights when the cooks barbecue outside in the back. The portions are huge, everything is fresh, the fish is excellent and the vegetarian choices are superb. My only complaints have ever been the service (when Reza is not around) and the shrimp, which I have been disappointed with on a few occasions. The lady who answers the phone for deliveries and less often the waitstaff, can be very rude, hurried and condescending. Normally, I would discontinue patronage however the food cannot be contended with in chicago. Reza's truly is the only mediterranean restaurant of its level in Chicago.
yummy Persian food – Everything was absolutely delicious, and there were new things for people who are familiar with the typical hummus and falafel type mediterranean places. Seafood skewers were generously portioned and everything was grilled just great. Meat and veggie eaters alike will find something to love. Wine list was affordable. I really liked the cheese plate appetizer too with a fresh and mile feta, olives and some other nibbles. Definitely recommend.
JUST DO IT! – Been here at least 15 times, never had any reason to complain. This is a wonderful way to introduce people to Middle Eastern foods. The menu is extensive, bound to impress. Service is always prompt, but a bit impersonal.
Reza's Restaurant – Reza's is simple middle-eastern cuisine, but well-prepared. The quality is good, prices are very good, the crowd is eclectic, the neighborhood is interesting and, best of all, it is open late. There is ample parking across the street.
Hummus Me. – The hummus here is awesome. After a few at the Hopleaf, we stop by Reza's and score some hummus and pita. The dinners are good, too. Soooo much food.
Good and plenty – Seems most things about this Reza's is generous: seating, service and portions. Six of us went to eat on a busy Saturday night, but were still comfortably seated and served quickly, and I had enough food left over for a full lunch the next day.
