Khayyam for Persian Food, Brookline, MA

Food (3.8/5.0)
Service (3.9/5.0)
My friends and I went to Khayyam's for weekday lunch on a voucher. Personally, I've never tried Persian food so I was looking forward to it. The prices were reasonable and the decor, although a tad dark, didn't detract from my dining experience. Our dishes were simple but were high up in flavor. My favorite was the hummus (WOW), followed by the Chicken kubideh (perfectly spiced). The lamb was good too but the scarce serving portion meant that we had to ration it out over the serving of rice and veggies. 

Our group also ordered the eggplant dish, highly recommended by
Yelpers. However, the expectation exceeded the experience. It was good but not particularly memorable. If anything, the breakout star for me was the homemade hummus. I've had my fair share of hummus but there was something special about the one at Khayyam: a delicate nuttiness, but not quite tahini. Needless to say, I got a separate container to go!
