  1. How about Reyhaan in culver city? The folks who run it are very nice and the food is delicious. While the restaurant is not super fancy, but it's relatively new and the ambience is pleasant. There are a number of positive posts about this place. For example:

    Address: 11800 Jefferson Blvd, Culver City, CA

    Best with your Valentine's day!

    1. I think Raffi's in Glendale has one of the best Kabobs around. It is not super fancy, I think
      it looks better at night than day time but food is always good.

      It can get very busy on weekends. You may have to wait up to one hour for a table on the weekends. Plan on spending $50 to 60 for two people. I hope this helps.

      1. Javan on Santa Monica near Sawtelle.

        1. i've been to two very good ones: javan and shamshiri. i think shamshiri is really, really good and that's where i would go. it's not particularly romantic though (neither are). it's lots and lots of food!

          1. I would go to Shamshiri Grill on Westwood Blvd. in Westwood.

            Raffi's Place in Glendale has a nice courtyard with a fountain, but it has been cold and rainy lately. The food at Raffi's is very good, but I don't think the indoor ambiance is very romantic.

            Shamshiri is also not very romantic, but I like the interior better, and they have nice art on the walls. The food is very good, too. I have taken many friends there, and they all like it. Prices are also very reasonable. I don't know if they will have specials for Valentine's Day.

            Shamshiri Grill
            1712 Westwood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90024

            Raffi's Place Restaurant
            211 E Broadway, Glendale, CA 91205
