We went there for dinner on our day off in the city, as I craving some kabob. Ordered koobideh kabob, which I thought was below average.
Asked the waiter if I could change it to some other dish. The owner came over and gave me hell with his eyes and words for not liking his koobideh. Might I say, he was very rude. 16 years of dinning in bay area have not seen such rude treatment.

Interestingly, I visited their SJ location for dinner last month; it was closed! the window sign said: " closed for remodeling, see you soon". Later I found out it is closed for good due to lack of customer service. Dooh!

In any event, we won't be going back anytime soon, as don't want our evening to be ruined again.

Dined there twice over within one month. Both times very good service and great food. The basmati rice was great! The appetizers are delightful. When was the last time you had lamb's tongue? Recommend this to anyone with a flair for Mediterranean and/or Middle Eastern-types of food.

Pros: All good

Cons: No cons

Great representative of persian cuisine! Excellent service. Our server also made our persian martini which was awsome. Next time I visit SF, I'll definitely will go back to Maykadeh.

Pros: Food, Service, location

Cons: nothing

The best persian restaurant in the city. I always get the feesonjune, I hope I spelled it right. It's chicken stewed in a walnut paste, it's tangy and sweet, and delicious. Must have a tea to finish the meal.

Maykadeh specializes in Persian kabob and rice dishes. Koobideh (literally means "ground") is a spiced ground beef and lamb kabob - very juicy and flavorful. The joojeh (chicken) kabob is also quite tender and delicately spiced. A few Persian stew specialties are also available, I recommend the Bademjan, which is a braised lamb shank and eggplant in a cinnamon-spiced sauce served with a heap of saffron rice. Careful - you'll go home and have cravings for it the next day.

The Kashk-Bademjan, an appetizer made from fried eggplant and a type of whey cheese is fantastic, as is the Tah-Dig with Gormeh Sabzi, a crispy rice covered with a vegetarian stew of spinach, parsley, fenugreek and kidney beans (I know it sounds disgusting, but it's heavenly).

Waiters sometimes take a while to get to you, but they're warm and friendly and quite helpful with the menu if you have questions.

There's valet parking - don't waste your time trying to find on-street parking in this corner of North Beach.

Pros: Delicious Persian Food

Cons: Can be a little heavy and salty - eat early in the evening and take a walk.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in SF, and I really love the food and atmosphere here. I live in North Beach and often eat out, and a Persian friend highly recommended this restaurant to me. It's best to go when you're really hungry as the portions are huge. I always order the koobideh and add the tomatos, onions and a little butter to the rice. This dish is only around $12 and you get a ton of food. The photos on the walls are really fun and interesting to look at. I love Persian food!

Pros: food is fantastic, ambience is really nice, service quick

Cons: none that I can think of

My husband and I live in north beach and really like trying different kinds of food. Although we have a one year old, we still avoid chain restaurant and manage to have a meaningful fine dining most of the time. One of the few times that we went to maykadeh after my daughter was born, my one year old decided to have a tantrum over her Dora dvd. Not only the owner did not do a thing to calm her down(i.e. crayons, milk, bread...), but he also told my husband in the meanest tone that if we cant keep our child quite, we have to leave. As much as i like persian food and the ambiance at Maykadeh, I would never go there again. That was yet the worst dining experience I have ever had in or out of country. extremely rude owner. The food is ok and very pricy for its quality. If i ever crave persian food again, I would go to Alborz on Van Ness.

If you're looking for something a little different in North Beach, Makadeh is a great place to check out. Food is not stunning, but the staff is really nice, and I always havce a good time there.

Pros: great service, not too busy

Cons: hard to park

.

On our last visit the food was as good as ever (although one of us thought their dish over-salted) and the staff was exceptionally friendly and solicitous. Skip the valet parking, though -- either the valet helped himself to our stash of quarters or someone else did when the valet wasn't watching. Walk to one of North Beach's fine cafes or up Telegraph Hill afterwards instead.

The food was better than my dad's cooking, which is pretty good. The portions are hefty; I'm no small guy and I barely finished. The service was excellent. Many of the patrons present when I was there were Persians, so that should tell you something. The food was a little pricier than similar restaurants in D.C. and Nashville, but better. I really enjoyed it.

Pros: large portions, great food, wall photos

I have been to at least 20 Persian restaurants and Maykadeh is on my TOP 3 list. The food is always consistent, the servers are freindly, and best of all, I don't have to wait an hour for my dinner. The location is walking distance to downtown in North Beach close to all the cool Jazz Bars.

Order the double skewered Soltani and drink plenty of their Shiraz wine. Don't fill up on the appetizers because the plates are HUGE...yummie, my mouth is watering.

Excellent rice with chicken kebobs. Must try the youghurt drink called "doogh"and the creme caramel. Friendly servants but restaurant is a bit pricy for what it is.

I've been to a couple of Middle Eastern Restaurants in Sunnyvale (Chelokobi and Chatanooga....not sure of the spelling but there are about 5 minutes apart). I always order lamb kabob. I had high expectations when i finally got a chance to eat at Maykadeh, considering this is highly rated in Zagat book.

I was very disappointed to say the least. The ambiance was not good at all. The food was NOT something I"d go back to. If you want better tasting lamb kabob AND better ambiance, I'd recommend those I mentioned in Sunnyvale area.

The food at Maykadeh is full of flavor and very succulent. The ambience is very nice and the service is excellent. This is the best Persian restaurant you'll find in San Francisco!
