Editorial Review of Reza's (Andersonville)

This Sunday buffet provides plenty of bang for your buck.

With platters of lamb, potatoes, rice, shrimp, salmon, fresh fruit and various veggies laid out before you, Reza's Sunday brunch is the sort of thing you wake up thinking about. The $19.95 spread proffers more than 50 items for you to try, including items that aren't on the menu. It's a meal you should toast to—and can, thanks to the complimentary glass of champagne.

The Persian restaurant's weekday buffet, offered 11 a.m.-3 p.m. is a smaller and less pricey affair at $9.95. If you aren't a buffet buff, you can pick from the restaurant's large selection of lamb, chicken, seafood and vegetarian dishes. Warmly familiar options include kabobs, cous cous, dolmeh, baba ghannouj and fessenjan (chicken simmered in pomegranate sauce). Be warned that the portions are quite large; only a determined glutton can plow through a main course laid on a huge bed of dill rice after sampling the complimentary feta cheese, radishes and pita bread (a bit of hummus is a good investment).

Reza's dining space is airy, dim and cool, accented with large windows and a skylight. It provides a relaxed, "mind your own business" feeling that doesn't try very hard to impress but does so all the same. Open 365 days a year, Reza's food speaks for itself. It needs nothing more.

Average cost: $21-$30
