The eggplant dip was worth the culinary exploration to Iran and the lamp tips and chops created an abundance of savory satisfaction that made me sad when they were all gone. Please note the dried okra is a must have everytime. You will thank me later.

Loved the mid century decor. Really appreciated the music, as it was at just the right volume, not too loud, and great jazz. Added to tye atmosphere without being overpowering.

While celebrating a friends birthday, he made our experience at the Consulate amazing. The drinks are good while the food is even better. We were told they switch their menu weekly to different foods around the world! I'll definitely be coming back.

Being forced to read a large, somewhat complicated menu, on your phone in a low light environment is but one of the many unpleasantries in our new “improved” environment. The food was decent, but the service was uneven. The table was way too small for our group. I felt like I was eating on a plane. Overall, not a great experience.

We have a few printed menus if requested for those who do not mind handling such. Brightening your phone screen should make it easier as well. Most of our tables can accommodate enough plates for a 4 top, but if you were at a booth with 5 people, yes room gets tight. Your server can time plates accordingly. Did you remember your servers name?

Food and cocktails of the country selected Iran were tasty and well presented . The ambiance is unique with globes, airline and travel plates and items . The cozy lounge and bar are decorated in travel themed motif . Would be my favorite restaurant if I lived in atlanta

The atmosphere is trendy, perfect for a romantic date night, or a nice dinner with friends. The food is always amazing, and a portion of the menu changes every three months. On this visit we tried Nuuk Chops, the Havana Egg Roll, Sautéed String Beans, Goa Coconut Shrimp, the Joojeh Kabab, a Grilled Shrimp Kabob, and the Tahdig (described as the Famous Iranian Crispy Herb Rice). Everything was amazing, except for the Tahdig. All four of us thought it was dry and needed some kind of sauce or something (note none of us had tried it previously so not sure if that’s the way it is supposed to be. If that’s the case it would have been nice to know in advance so we could have paired it with a dish with some kind of complementary sauce). We had fun trying new things though so it didn’t damper the evening. We definitely will be back to try a few more things before the menu changes again.

They were able to make arrangements that afforded us comfort for our experience. Mariah was our server. She was kind and attentive. She made great recommendations for wine, cocktails and food items. She was knowledgeable on the Iranian menu. She paid great attention to detail and learned all of names and referred to the entire party of 6 accordingly. I was very appreciative of the complimentary champagne for celebrating. The host that evening was helpful in helping us identify parking even helping my friend who had taken an earlier fall elsewhere w/band-aids. The bartenders were friendly as well. The atmosphere is lowkey but your eyes are drawn the many cool vignettes arranged throughout. I highly recommend. I do think the 9pm reservation worked in our favor as we were not held to the 2.5 table time minimum.

I wish the staff had a little bit more knowledge about the cultural significance of the dishes and I wish they knew how/why the chef deviated from the traditional way of making the dish. I say that because the jollof rice was dissimilar to how it is prepared in west Africa. After hyping up the menu , I was a little embarrassed at my Ghanaian friend’s reaction to the dish.

However, Chef Lin did, and both Ghanian guests and Nigerian guests had applauded the dish. No need to feel embarrassed...There are many versions and opinions of the "correct" way the dish is made. Our feedback and demand has been so well, we have kept it on the menu. We are glad you enjoyed your visit!

The menu is always very unique, the decoration inside is very well done and plays well on the sort of spy/world traveler theme. Definitely worth checking out.
