Lamb kabobs were good, but the serving was quite small.

First of all, I think this restaurant owner is a great cook but extremely poor manager. While there I saw many people walking away because there were no tables while there was a table for 4 right in the middle of the dinning room. Secondly, staff doesn't speak English very well, they are extremely busy and don't have time for you or can't explain food or drinks. They also could hire a busboy to help them out. The lights are incredibly bright, not only they must spend a ton on electricity it also doesn't make the ambience comfortable. They advertise full bar. No way! They have wine and I don't drink beer but my friend wanted a beer they didn't have that type, she asked for another one and they did. For the price of food they could treat their customers to an experience so we can come back. Didn't even offered dessert, had to just get up and pay at the register because the waiter was very busy. It is very normal for them to walk by you 100 times and ignore you completely. I think everybody should try their food once however other Persians restaurants might have the same but offer value. I was there with 5 friends and when I asked no one would return. I wish they made it a little bit more about the customer, they would do well.

What You'll Get

Like a political sign, food mounted on a skewer often captures the attention of passersby when displayed in one’s front yard. Show flavor solidarity with today’s Groupon at Molana Restaurant in Watertown. Choose between the following options:

  • For $20, you get $40 worth of Persian cuisine
  • For $35, you get $70 worth of Persian cuisine<p>

Named after influential Iranian poet Rumi, Molana Restaurant dishes out authentic Persian meals and a halal spread crafted from choice cuts of meat and fresh, handpicked vegetables. Appetizer kashk bademjan ($6.99) leads off a lengthy menu with a mélange of sautéed eggplant, onions, and mint flavor bathing in a secret sauce. To create the shirin polo ($17.99), chefs chaperone a sultry tango between chicken breast and an open flame, and boneless lamb kebabs ($17.99) align succulent hunks of marinated tenderloin on a skewer or seasoned javelin. A quartet of Persian desserts provides a sweet summation to exotic feasts, including zoulbia and bamieh ($4.99), a combination of flour, sugar, honey, and rosewater twisted into the shape of a pretzel or silhouette of the diner’s favorite president.

About Molana Restaurant

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.
