Good Persian food is more than just intriguing; at its best, it's seductive - full of flavors and textures and techniques that are elegantly simple, often precise, always distinctive and unique. Preparation and presentation are clean, crisp and fresh and the mixture of ingredients often is inspired. With good Persian food, you are not just satisfied, you're beguiled. Seduced. If this sort of rich culinary experience sounds good to you, you'll want to put Darya high on your restaurant to-do list. Located in South Coast Plaza Village, Darya is owned by three men - Ray Essahanian, Sam Salout and Ali Abedi. The trio has owned and operated Persian restaurants in the area since 1984 and Darya has been located in South Coast Plaza Village since 1996. Like the cuisine it serves, Darya's decor is a meld of simplicity and elegance. Cream-colored columns support the ceiling of the spacious dining room, the comfortable chairs are tastefully upholstered, the white tablecloths fairly gleam and the subtle but intricate carpet keeps the ambient noise nicely muted.Also, tables are set well apart, underscoring the feeling of spaciousness. Top Rated Restaurant Southern California Zagat Survey.
