Reza's is a reliable place to take visiting family when they all want something different: Ma, Pa, vegetarian sister, adventure-seeking other sister, meat-loving brother., and dentures-don't-work Great Grandpa. Reza's has good Middle-Eastern vegetarian dishes but its special thing is big kebabs of beef, lamb, chicken, or seafood with a mountain of good rice. Portions are huge. Prices are low (google "Reza's menu" to see what's what). Either the River North or the Andersonville location is cheerful. Over the years we must have taken forty parties of visitors to Reza's and everybody has loved it.

I love this restaurant! I used to visit the same place when it was an Irish Brewery, and I love the fact that Reza's kept the old beer making machines out for display, as they give the place such a cool character. The wait staff is always friendly and quite classy, and the food is amazing. The mushroom kabob appetizer is excellent, and everything is so healthy. I now live in Los Angeles, but I always try to hit Reza's when I am in Chicago visiting family.

All the food is very fresh, never dry, and always so darn good And it comes in heaping orders. You'll have left overs for days. The wait staff are usually very busy so they're pretty brief but that's OK. The service is fine. The value, well the prices have gone up on most items by like, a dollar, in the last four years. But you still walk away with days of really good food. So it's worth the $. The atmosphere in both places is all about space. Giving you your very own space without some poor schmuck being sat right on top of you. Reza's is a staple of Chi Town. Go for the menu and try food that's satisfyingly good. Enjoy.

For some reason both locations of Reza's seem to be popular. I've eaten at both and it's a pretty poor representation on persian/middle eastern food. The food is so-so, and you can definitely get good middle eastern food in the city at places with more character. There's no need to go here. I'm half persian and grew up on persian food. The one good thing I can say about this place is that I remember the soup that came with my meal as tasting good and authentic. Otherwise, I'd try other restaurants in chicago.
