Mandana's - Elk Grove, second serving

In an earlier thread I spoke ill of Mandana's - a Persian resto on Devon in Elk Grove. Went there once and what I was served was bland and seemed indifferently prepared.

I had occasion to go back with a companion. The meal was very different. Well-prepared meat and aromatic rice. Lovely middle eastern salads as they should be prepared - good yogurt, fresh vegatables, nice touch of mint, etc. Quite pleasing.

I am not sure what the issue was the first time, but it is definitely worth going to based on the second meal. It is in the same strip mall as the Salt Creek BBQ, see previous thread for directions.
