I'm mostly vegetarian, but not always

Very good. I mean, very good. I love Persian Garden. The veggie burger is fantastic. It's mostly spinach (I think), and very filling. The salad is also very fresh and refreshing. I've also had the Dolme Plate which is excellent. Their homemade Nan is to die for as well. I just think they deserve a better location and I do hope they move! Otherwise, 5 stars!
I like this place. It's cute and mother & daughter owned and run which I think is great. It's a laid back type place which is great for a quick meal or a slow lunch. I had a breakfast burrito which was really good. I also had an elixir which was served in a champagne glass on a plate with a piece of homemade lavendar chocolate and a strawberry which was adorable! I also found out the elixirs are made by Chakra 4 which makes it even better. The service is great, everyone that works there is really nice and Cassie is a total sweet heart! I'll be going back for sure. The only problem is they are in Ahwatukee which is kind of a hike for me. But they are worth the trip for sure.
I've been going to Chakra 4 for herbs since before they opened the cafe. Not surprisingly, the food is very high quality. Everything is really fresh and the portions are really big. Although they recently cut full wraps from the menu, I'm not sure why. I always had to take half home anyway, so I guess its ok. Either way, what used to be the half, and is now the only wrap, is still great. I usually get the Golden Hummus or the Cowgirl. And I always look forward to trying a different tea every time I go back. But if you are in a hurry on a work lunch, be careful, sometimes they get really busy at lunch and your wait can be longer than normal. But if you ask they will give you fair warning. Other than that, I love Chakra 4.
I like what this place is trying to do. I just wish they were a little more concerned about the food as they do it. First, I get that this place is trendy. That's great. But that doesn't make it good. I also think its great that you can get a healthy meal here no matter what kind of diet you are on. But it is SO expensive for what you get. The portions are very small for the price. I will say that I believe they get produce from McClendon's so they are buying local, which is a good thing. I think the 1 star reviews are a little harsh all things considered. It's not like they are terrible. I would say it's average.
