atmosphere is my only criticism. Nothing there that says "mid eastern." Given a different menu could be a McDonalds or Wendys. Some art or decoration to exoticize the place just a little bit would be nice. Also, on this particular day it was too cold. But the weather was weird, unseasonably cool, and I will forgive them that. Music was a little bit too loud, but not bad.

The gentleman running the restaurant is very knowledgeable and friendly. We really enjoyed our experience. My fiancé said it was the best groupon experience he has ever had!

Importantly, the prices are quite fair. Most items are about $8.00 Portions are on the small size. Dining experience is forgettable as the menu has fairly tasteless food for the most part. There are a few interesting diversions e.g. Persian Ice Cream. Second rate condiments and coffee sweeteners. Plastic forks and plates. Early last night they were "all out" of lamb, hamburgers (and possibly other items).

From Our Editors

Though Simply Grille embraces modernity with digital menu displays, the Middle Eastern restaurant still does food the old-fashioned way, serving up handcrafted plates of traditional Persian-American appetizers, salads, and kebab entrees. Cooks expertly grill marinated meats, such as boneless lamb and chicken, before skewering the morsels and placing them on top a plush bed of rice. For heartier meals, they can pair a kebab entree with a side of zereshk polo—a basmati-rice dish made with barberries, currants, and saffron. They can also assemble the family platter, which satisfies up to four diners with an array of meat kebabs and grilled tomatoes.
