Persian Restaurants in the South Bay?

Melanie Wong | Mar 12, 2007 07:39 PM

My recent visits to Bijan, surrounded by Iranian ex-pats, and Noruz around the corner is tilting me toward Persian food again. The last time I asked about what's good in the South Bay was April 2002, . Many changes in the landscape since then, and I'm wondering about the newcomers. Any feedback on these?
