Family-run Reyhaan is a new, consistently good Persian restaurant in an unlucky corner of Culver City, says thericequeen.
Kashk-e bademjan, a roasted eggplant concoction, looks like an unpromising gray paste floating in olive oil, but it explodes with flavor. Chicken kebab—grilled, marinated, boneless chunks of breast—is tasty and moist and goes well with the grilled tomatoes.
The word is that the couple who own the place are from rural Iran, so there may be some interesting off-menu specialties.
Lunch prices range from $7 for a special to $17 for the sultani beef kebab.
