This is by far our favorite restaurant in San Diego and we love the girls who own it. Tiba and Golsa Farahani are the cutest, sweetest and most thoughtful girls we have ever met. Their passion for their family owned restaurant shows and their creations are beyond delicious. Win a $60 gift certifcate to Bandar at the Buddhi Launch Party Saturday, March 10th.
