    First visit with family. Nice decor and hookah in outside area. Late lunch visit with almost no indoor traffic. Pleasant but disinterested wait staff. Food tasted recently warmed up. Almost no item tasted fresh. Nice Shireen polo. A bit disappointed as I had heard good things about this place. Would hesitate to return.

    We've been coming to Mirage regularly for years. While other Persian restaurants in Sandy Springs have become fashionable, Mirage remains our favorite. The food is always excellent and interesting. Service is great. And unlike some other places where the noise level is a distraction to conversation, Mirage has a nice ambiance with a low-level buzz that is easy on the ears. Look for the "Mirage special" items on the menu. The Shireen Polo rice dish is excellent, with a lamb or chicken kebab or as side dish. My pre-teen child always gets the Chicken Barg which is flavorful but not too spicy for a kid. New on this visit we enjoyed the meatball appetizers. And the Persian ice cream (rosewater, orange) was delicious.

    We were there for a quick bite of appetizers only. Got a glass of wine, spicy lamb meatballs and the dinner special of salmon meatballs. The lamb meatballs were great. The salmon was missing in the salmon ones! We Scoutmobbed the meal and did not get the entire $20 that the max was allowed for dinner discount, only got $11. We didn't even eat more than half of the salmon. The server just made an appearance when he brought the food and refilled my water as we were paying the bill. I had to take my husband's water. We were 1 of 2 tables on a Saturday night at 10 PM.

    We enjoy the food here very much. The Shireen Polo - rice with barberries, orange rind, raisins and spices is absolutely delicious. My husband is partial to any and all of the lamb shank dishes. We dined with friends and tried two of these delicious, tender treats. Try the kashk o'bademjoon, an out-of-this-world eggplant appetizer. Even those who are not thrilled with eggplant like this!

    The food was great and I highly recommend the Mirage Special; it was one of the best dishes I've ordered at a restaurant. My date especially loved it because there was a lot of food per entree so he didn't leave hungry. I used a Scoutmob deal to pay, and I usually don't mind the 20% gratuity requirement, but I didn't think the server was nice enough to receive that much money. Regardless, I will definitely go back. My roommate tried some of our leftovers and loved them, so I'm sure Mirage will see me again soon!

    The beet walnut dip special was a nice change of pace from the standard Mediterranean fare and of course the hot sampler was yum. I did not care for my main course the Vegetarian Qeymeh Bademjoon . My husband had lamb and enjoyed his dish. We had to ask for our water glasses to be filled and our appetizers and main course were served almost at the same time. The waiter should have paced the order so we were not served everything at once.

    I have been to Mirage many times. This time everything went downhill. The waitress did NOT speak English well enough to understand our requests. She didn't know the menu. We had to ask for each thing 3 times and then still didn't get what we requested. I have ordered the wraps many times and this time the quality was NOT the same...they were not good. One of us had lamb and the other veggie kabob wraps. I'm so disappointed.

    Dined on 1/17/2014
    We happened to be staying in Sandy Springs for a couple of weeks, while our house in Midtown was under construction. Being used to the restaurant scene in Midtown Atlanta (good restaurants everywhere) Mirage was an exception to the rule that the Atlanta suburbs lack good places to eat (there are obviously some more exceptions). Tucked away in a strip mall Mirage offers great and authentic Persian cuisine . The ambience might have been slightly outdated, but the food and the service made up for that! We first had a variety of appetizers (kooftah, hummus, eggplant, dolmas) and then chose the (lamb) kabobs for our main course. The food was very well prepared and tasty. The fresh mint tea (that wasn't on the menu) made our experience complete.

    We decided this year to do Christmas Dinner on Friday so all family members could be present. Three of us decided to dine out together on Christmas Day. We found the Mirage on Open Table and the rest is history. The ambiance was great for Christmas dining. The staff treated us great. The food was awesome. We had the Leg of Lamb, Salmon Kabob and Steak Kabob. They were all prepared wonderfully. We will definitely dine at this restaurant again.

    Mirage has a good selection. The servers are happy to substitute their variety of rices, which all are good. I had the lamb shish kabob and my friend had the lamb shank. Both were very flavorful. It's a great neighborhood restaurant. I've dined there a number of times. I like the fact that it is locally owned and managed.

    This restaurant is located in a strip mall right outside the perimeter of Atlanta. It was a little difficult to find. Once we walked in, we were seated immediately. It took some time to place our order, receive bread but once the food came out it was delicious! There were a lot of larger groups which may have affected the service time.

    I found Mirage Persian Cuisine to be somewhat lackluster. The basmati rice had ZERO flavor, in comparison to few other Persian restaurants I've dined in. The naan looked and tasted like it was made out of pizza dough, very bland. The kabobs were OK, I tried the Koubideh which was over powering in comparison to the rice, and my girlfriend had the Soltani consisting of a beef tenderloin strip with one grilled sirloin kabob. In comparison to other Persian restaurants on Roswell Rd., Mirage was a let-down.

    Two of my girlfriends and I went to Mirage for lunch for the first time and really enjoyed the food, especially their eggplant appetizer which was a big surprise to me because I don't usually like eggplant. The only negative is it took way too long for our food to arrive. We arrived at 12 and were the first and only people there so we didn't understand why we had to wait for such a long time.

    Great family run restaurant that treats each diner as if they are a member of their family! Unusual dishes that you won't find in many places made with loving care. The portions will feed two. I loved the appetizer sampler, especially the dolmaides and the carmelized onions with eggplant. I wish there was a more varied wine list. But otherwise the experience was wonderful!
