Venue in San Diego, CA
Soltan Banoo opened its doors in March of 2003. Before that, Mahin and her two daughters Roxanne and Sanam ran Cafe Caspian across the street. Cafe Caspian, a small two room cafe came about throught the encouragement of the community for Mahin to express her creativity and cooking. The girls soon joined in and had to quit their day jobs to aid mom run what had become a restaurant. With only 20 seats and lots of people waiting, Cafe Caspian just had to expand; so when Waltz properties wanted to move, the trio moved operations across the street.
