NileGuide Expert tip:
Come for dinner for great date night ambiance.
This corner cafe in central Phoenix excels in spicy, exotic Persian, Mediterranean, and vegetarian cuisine, with memorable stand-out dishes like the Purple Shoot and delicious-yet-still-healthy grilled tofu and cheese sandwich. Dinner entrees are big enough for two, and you'll find everything on the menu from Baba Ganuj to kebabs and gyros--all expertly prepared and loaded with spicy flavor. A range of exotic salads, shrimp-, salmon-, and chicken-based dishes, as well as an extensive vegetarian and vegan menu, make this an ideal spot for any health-conscious eater who is not afraid of flavor. Persian rugs and candle-lit tables make for a dim, sensual ambiance ready-made for date night.
