Attari Grill Westwood - Anyone Been?

Walked past the famous Attari Sandwich on Westwood and saw that they just open a small, 6 tables indoor restaurant right next to the outdoor eating area of the Sandwich Shop. Anyone been? Menu seems like typical Persian joint with Kabob, Stew etc.

  1. It's called Attari Grill. Haven't yet tried it.

      I'm presuming they just expanded their kabab menu. If I'm not mistaken, they already had some kababs on their sandwich menu, or maybe it was a Friday or Saturday thing, or maybe the "ab goosht" is a special.

    2. I was there just this weekend for lunch. The 4 of us split 2 soups (OSH) - a vegetarian soup that was excellent; 2 vegetarian sandwiches - they were good, but not as good as the soup; and we had one lamb dish/sandwich. It came with flat bread, onions, tomato (on the side) and it was delicious. Overall, a really great and fun experience. Sandwiches are big enough for two people.

        Are you referring to Attari Sandwich Shop, or the newly-opened Attari Grill next door? Cuz I go to the Sandwich Shop regularly. I thought the original thread was referring to the new place next door, and that's the joint I haven't yet tried.

      2. I posted asking about this back in April, and got no replies. I'm still curious (if not curious enough to go).

          Food wise - excellent.

          Ambience - I love sitting on the patio on a nice suny day or evening, although the patio is very uneven, slanting down. And the indoor area is always stuffy when it's hot - they might not have A/C.

          For a cafe style place, the koobideh is really good. And I think they have the best ASH (pronounced OSH) soup of all the Persian restaurants.

          My favorite sandwiches are the Kuku (it's like a veggie patty but Persian style and very good with nice spices) and the Chicken Cotlet sandwiches, but don't expect the Cotlet to be a breaded piece of chicken like a cutlet. It's not really breaded, more like ground chicken I think? Anyway, both are very good, but I get it without the mayo. My husband loves the tongue sandwich.

          On fridays, they have a really good Persian dish that you cannot find in a lot of Persian restaurants in LA - ab ghoost. It's like a lamb stew with sabzi (greens, radish, onion) and bread that you dip in the lamb stew juice. REALLY tasty. but they run out early a lot on Fridays. So I don't ever try to get it after lunch there.

            yeah, attari is pretty darn good, I like the cutlet sandwiches and sometimes the sosses (hot dog) sandwiches, yeah, without mayo, and then just give the sandwiches a little squirt of srirachi for that kick.

        2. I noticed this old post and thought I'd respond since I visited recently..all of the responses appear to be referring to the sandwich shop and not the sit down restaurant. I thought the restaurant was good - cheaper than Shaherzad but similar in portion size. We tried one stew that was really tasty, but since there's no online menu i cant remember what it was called. The owners were incredibly nice. We ended up chatting with a Persian woman who was at the table next to us with her mom and she recommended their crispy rice with stew.
