1st time impression  

I visited the place for lunch - we ordered one dish because it seemed that what people got for one order was enough to fill both of us. After the lunch, I though that this place offers a lot of very good food for less money. Definitely going there again! I gotta check out the dinners too....

loved the place  

I went there with my boyfriend on a Saturday night and we had so much fun. The service was excellent. Food was amazing and very healthy. But the best part of the evening was the dancing after dinner. Such friendly and warm people. We'll definitely go there again.


Excellent food, service, ambiance, entertainment... The belly dancer and music were great, and our waitress was so nice and helpful. The food was delicious, and the whole Sadaf experience was wonderful. The prices are reasonable as well. If you've never been there, you should definitely check it out. Our family in town from the Bay Area loved it too. Thank you, Sadaf!!


Just got home after eating at Sadaf's. The food was outstanding from appetizers to main course. The quantity was more than we could eat and the price was very reasonable. The quality cannot be beat. We had a variety among the 5 of us, and every item was good. The chicken kabobs, with white meat was the juiciest white meat chicken I have ever eaten. The shrimp was great. Beef was also superb. We did not try lamb this time, but will next time. The service was great. Slowed down at the end, but we were not rushed. We will go back again.

Great place for a pretty good price!  

I took my girlfriend here for a nice dinner surprise. The food was absolutely fantastic! The chicken skewers melted in my mouth and were full of flavor! The pita bread was good and I liked the rice pilaf. I would definitely reccommend this place. The service was pretty good too. They were, prompt, curteous, and helpful

Great food  

Great food and music, highly enjoyable.

Nice Place, not a very good service.  

The Place itself is fantastic, although I must add that I wasn't happy with their service, including the management's attitude. But, hey you can't judge at a glance, try it.

Attitude Problems & Demands  

We have been a group of people who been attending the Sadaf Restaurant at least once a week for many years. But unfortunately it has been going down on FOOD & Attitude. They have fired workers cause of workers not wanting to give their tips away to them. They have told people to not go there since they don't go there often per month. They have refused to be friendly & courteous. They have discriminated against the ones who ask questions about their food or ask for more things. They want to charge you for every spoon you take. They are RUDE, they blame the customers for their waiters leaving. On top of that .. if you get up to pay at the cashier when you have food to go, they order you to sit cause they are talking to your friend & getting mad at your friend. You know, many people are concerned about their health, so they ask questions about what the food contains they punish you for doing that.. they accuse you of "Ordering". They are really mean people. And if you don't go there often, they tell you to get lost. Their food has changed, the Kabobs have got thinner & shorter. sometimes they are burned, and lots of the times they smell like the beginning of spoiling. The Restrooms are so filthy sometimes, the toilet water flasher might be broken & when you inform them, they get MAD at you & started screaming as it is your fault. They just don't have any people skill & do not know their LIMITS with the customers who have been steady ..they just say, we make our money mostly with delivery & we don't need your business. Thank you for this opportunity.
