Persia, formerly, and currently known as Iran is in a region of the world where meat is the staple diet and Sufi is very much a meat eaters place. The first thing that strikes you is how large and grand it is. Sufi is designed to look like palatial balconies that overlook a central lawn. The seating area is arranged along two parallel balconies connected by a walkway. Persian art and curios line decorate the walls. The floor is wonderfully tiled. Lamps hang from the ceiling and rope curtains hanging about two feet down from the top provide the perfect punctuation to the ambience. Each table is placed on a persian carpet, some of which are 30 years old. Some tables have large, soft cushions instead of chairs.
If for nothing else, visit Sufi for the decor and ambience.
The food is nice, and one gets a good selection of chicken, mutton, beef and sea food. I wouldn't rate it as excellent though. What is good is the Doogh
- a drink made of yoghurt and persian spices, however quite a few people do not like it.
They also have butter chicken, called Makhani Chooze. Most dishes are just a single piece except for the kababs.
For the veggies there is some Indian fare too. Hara Bhara kababs and various baingan and spinach dishes.
If you're someone who doesn't eat red meat, or stays away from beef, be warned that the kabab platter contains beef, mutton and chicken.
Now, you could go to Sufi and not eat. They have an art gallery with persianBlues rates it:

- Go there, if only for the ambienceGetting there:
Go down Airport Road until you get to Pizza Hut on Wind Tunnel Road (the autorickshaw drivers know it at Murgeshpalya). Turn along Pizza Hut and move a few furlongs down. Sufi is attached to ClubX, just behind the Pizza Hut building.
