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?

Deezi's particularly interesting because it steps outside the standard kababs and rice dishes to offer:
