Persian Restaurants in the South Bay

Need a recommendation for a good Persian restaurant in the South Bay for a birthday dinner tomorrow night? Would prefer a more traditional, less formal atmosphere.

  1. Is Marina del Rey close enough? I don't know of any places in the South Bay, but I will see if I can remember the address of a place in Marina del Rey that's pretty good.

    I can't remember the name of the place, but this link will give you some options across LA. :)

      the joint on main st in el segundo might just fit the bill,

      but it's not just persian more of a melange with french and italian influences and mousse, tiramisu, etc for deserrts.


    2. The only one I know of is Seaside Palace in Torrance, on the corner of Sepulveda and Hawthorne. I haven't eating there in 5+ years (call to make sure it is still open), but back in the day it wasn't quite as good as some of the best westside Persian places, but pretty close.

      1. I came across a the card for a Persian restaurant that I went to a while ago. It's called Tajrish, and it was very good. It is in Marina del Rey, which is not quite the South Bay, but it is closer than both Westwood and Santa Monica to the South Bay.

          tajrish is all right not great, service is pretty shoddy here though.

            The service was okay when I went, but I've only been there once. :)

        2. This is obviously too late for the OP, but Hank's Bistro in Lawndale has been doing a good job for a long time. They also serve Italian (!) food being one of the original Hank's Pizza clones. I'm stuck in a rut since I always get the fesenjon (chicken with pomegranate sauce).
