Food was OK, service lackluster. At end charged 18% service charge --- felt like it was a dishonest experience.

Food was good. Service was poor. They add on a 20% tip automatically which I found a little surprising/annoying given the poor service. But the food was good and the value of the groupon was good. It's definitely worth a try as long as you know what you are in for!

Although the food was plentiful and delicious, I felt very insulted that they chose to add a 20% tip for themselves of the total bill. And, the 'deal' really wasn't much of a deal for what you got. That was unacceptable. I won't be going back.

Overall food was good, not great. We usually go to a different Persian restaurant in Watertown, which we LOVE but wanted to try something new. It was good at Molana but we preferred the flavors more at the other restaurant but perhaps we had become accustomed to what we had first and had we come to Molano first we would like them better? Another big let down was that Molano served pita for bread that tasted very chewy like it had been heated in the microwave whereas other restaurant makes it fresh in this very cool domed brick oven. This alone is enough to keep me going back to the other place. The service at Molana was exceptional though, very attentive and helpful. I had requested an appetizer portion of the mirza gasemi which was listed as an entrée here but as apt at the other restaurant. They would not honor the request but was kind to bring me a sample so that I can taste their version. Lastly, the other restaurant had better ambience and live music on weekends.

From Our Editors

The open flames beneath Molana Restaurant’s grills lend a distinctive smokiness to the restaurant’s signature kabobs, but the closely guarded combinations of imported spices is what gives each dish its true Persian essence. Beginning with halal cuts of chicken, lamb, and beef, the chefs carefully roast meat-laden skewers on the grill tops. Appetizers of housemade pickles and yogurt add a refreshing touch to the savory meals, and fruit-accented sides of basmati rice can feature raisins, sour cherries, or sweet orange peels.

The restaurant occupies two floors, securing ample space for tables and a separate bar area. Wall sconces gently illuminate the dining room’s brickwork to help set the mood and alert guests if their shadows are running away.
