Mobi Dicks has been a favorite of mine and my husband's for many years. Moti, the friendly owner, is always there ensuring that everything- from service to cooking- is done to her impeccable standards. Some say the food is pricey, however, everything on the menu is fresh (purchased by Moti that very morning) and cooked to order. Are the portions the huge monstrosities that most American establishments serve? No, but we have never left there hungry or feeling over stuffed. We usually leave feeling super healthy, actually, having eaten salad, rice, beans, saffron, chicken, etc. It's not super fancy but it's an institution for those that frequent the Symphony area. Definitely need to try: the BBQ sandwich, fessenjan, the lentil soup, vegetarian chili, and her kebabs are to die for. Moti also makes a homemade salad dressing that is like liquid gold! (We put it on everything- think ranch dressing x 1000). I'd eat here everyday if I was in the area, and we make a point to come for a fix at least once per month.

Moby Dick has the best food on the block, but doesn't get too crowded. It's a hidden little gem!

We are on vacation and this place is near our kid's college. We loved their special tea, the hummus was the best along with the light pita for dipping. The wraps were full of tasty meat and every bite was a delight. The owners were warm and humble.

Very nice restaurant to empty your pockets. I mean really, prices are just ridiculous and almost insulting. Wouldnt come here again or recommend it.

I have been looking for a good persian restaurant in Boston for a year. Moby Dick has it all: GREAT food, nice atmosphere, nice value for your dollars, and very good service. The owner is very charming and really cares of you. The place is very clean and this is a great plus! They also do deliveries at night from 10.00pm till 2.30am in the morning on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. I have visited several persian restaurants around the world and I would say this one ranks among the top.. definitely recommended! Try their Ghormeh Sabzi, it's one of the best you could ever try!!

Some things: 1. Everything here is fresh and organic. Moti (owner) purchases everything from Whole Foods. This may explain the pricing issue other reviewers had, but I'll pay the bit extra for good healthy food. 2. It looks like a hole in the wall. Seriously, the decor leaves much to be desired indoors and outdoors. That being said, don't judge the place on that. 3. It's GREAT food. I discovered it by accident, and I;m glad I did. It's traditional, mouth-watering, AMAZING Persian food. Not to miss! 4. Moby Dick was an old kabob house in Tehran. Now kabob houses everywhere called themselved Moby Dick in keeping with that tradiation. It's a weird name at first glance, but is a fun little story. Ask the family that owns the establishment, they're very nice and will explain it in greater detail.
