Diner Reviews
  • "A true dining adventure; we'll be back. Many Iranian(?) families with well-behaved young children were clearly enjoying the large platters of food. The great variety and the size of the portions makes the Persian Room ideal for families and groups. Fresh basil, cilantro and sweet onion wrapped in fresh-baked Naan was a unique opener. We started with the Tah Dig appetizer; large enough for two. We enjoyed the crispy rice Tah Dig but did not care for the unique taste of the dried limes in both the two stew toppings. The waiter immediately replaced the dish with wonderful hummus. We then shared chicken barg with zereshk polo rice; very good, followed by a baklava with Persian ice cream, and Turkish (Greek) coffee. All excellent. "

  • "Our expereince was appalling. During dinner service a server starting cleaning the floor with a carpet sweeper. He was not cleaning up a spill but the rather the entire dining room. He even moved a chair at a table with diners at it to clean underneath. We spoke to the manager about how inappropriate/disruptive it was. No apology but rather we were asked if we wanted a clean floor. He then proceeded to tell us we were obviously used to other types of restaurants. Dcn't pretend to be a fine dining room when you allow in customers with flip flops and shorts and have the staff cleaning during dinner service. I think they need a lesson in customer service and maybe put in a drive through as that what the atmosphere ended up being....."

  • "Went to the Persian Room for the first time and had a lovely leisurely dinner. Started with the appetizer combo which is yummy. They put their wonderful thin pita on the table with onion, fresh herbs and butter. Wasn't sure how to eat this, so asked our waitress who encouraged us to butter our pita and put the condiments in it and pop it in our mouths. So we did, and I can't believe how good a raw onion can taste when paired with the herbs and butter! The main course is served with plenty of rice. We had them downsize the rice and fill in with a cucumber and tomato salad. The atmosphere was lively and the server knowledgeable and friendly. Took some time for the entrees to come out, but we were having a good time and did not care. Just go!"

  • "I have heard that the Persian Room was great but our group found the food to be fair and the waitress not quite capable of describing the food/spices. Drinks were over-priced and very mundane. Found the decor/atmosphere to be in need of a little perking up."

  • "Best middle eastern menu in the valley. Have had better service in the past but from what I gathered, our waitress was having a bad night. The other staff seemed aware and I'm sure it'll be a one time thing."

  • "We have come here several times for all types of occasions and are always pleased with the food, the service and the ambiance. For large groups it's fun to get their combination platters, plus a stew and appetizers. You do not feel rushed so it is a good place to meet with friends and enjoy the food and the beautifully decorated restaurant."

  • "With so many good restaurants in Scottsdale, we finally got around to trying The Persian Room. Part of the impetus was some Lebanese friends will be visiting soon and we wanted to find a good Mediterranean restaurant. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and the food was excellent. Started with the hummus with eggplant that was out of this world. Of course the homemade warm, soft pita bread had something to do with it too. We shared a combo plate of lamb kabob, chicken, rice and koobideh. Plenty for two and we still had leftovers to take home."

  • "Fantastic evening! I had made a reservation and asked them to be extra nice to my wife because she had had a bad couple of days and WOW did they ever come through. Very attentive and complimentary and really made her night. Especially this line "do you know why your wife's ice is melting faster than yours? Because she is HOT!" - I kid you not. It was said in jest after our first cocktail, so it was ok. So, on to the food... Very good Tah Dig with Gheimeh for dipping. The rack of lamb was perfectly cooked and the rice on the side was generous and tasty. Will definitely be returning!"

  • "I was a little hesitant about this restaurant. Never have experienced Persian food but what a pleasant surprise. Had no idea what to order but our server was wonderful. She answered all of our questions and was great at explaining all the different foods and how they were made. There were 4 of us and we all ordered something different and we were all very pleased. Tuesday nights were 1/2 off a bottle of wine so that was a bonus. We would all go back. Beautiful inside - chandeliers are spectacular."

  • "This was our first visit to the Persian Room. We loved it because not only is the food and service outstanding, but the decor and ambiance is perfect for either a romantic date or a family-friendly dinner. They have a separate room where there were large family groups, including tables with small children. We were in the main dining room which is more elegant and quiet, with a nice mix of couples dressed both casual and more formal. We loved the food, which is very modestly priced, and our server was outstanding. The staff works very hard to provide a positive experience without pretense. We highly recommend this place."

  • "Awesome food.. the Hummus was the best I have ever had. We got a combination platter and all the meat was delicious, and the portions were very good. We're foodies, and have lived in some of the best cities for ethnic foods, and this is possibly one of our favorites. We sat outside and the volume levels were a touch high, but we didn't have to talk loud to hear each other. Great service, great food, and the prices were very good. We live locally and we will definitely be back."

  • "I took my wife and another couple (very good friends) to the Persian Room for Valentine's Day dinner. I ordered flowers to be delivered to the restaurant and placed on our table through the OpenTable option and this worked very well. None of us had been to the Persian Room before and we were all very pleased with the variety of food, the preparation, the timing of delivery and the flavorful, well prepared dishes. The lamb dishes are quite fine. All in all, we had a very good experience and will return to the Persian Room again."

  • "Yes it was Valentine night but they should had have hired more people for their busiest night of the year. Appreciate the complimentary pita and herbs but half a onion to go with it!!! Surely for a night of lovers why would you want Romeos and Juliets munch on raw onion all night!! The waitress did her best and the room is lovely but much more love needed to be put in the food. The hummus was dry and no olive oil. The meat was cooked well but 80% of the plate was rice (tastey rice) but if you wish to be considered to be a fine dining location they are plenty of locations in Phoenix provide similar food fresher more vibrant than a big plate of rice. It must have been 7 years since I've been here last and another 7 years before I come again.."

  • "We had a reservation for 7:00 P.M. on a Saturday night. There were so many people waiting to be seated that it was impossible to stand inside the restaurant to wait. Parking was impossible; the only spaces available were at the nearby Village Inn or Marriott Courtyard. When I questioned the hostess about the crowd and what the point was in making a reservation, she said that they had a lot of walk-ins and that they couldn't just turn them away. I've been to restaurants as a walk-in before and told that nothing was available due to reservations. The Persian room accepted so many walk-ins that they couldn't seat their customers who had reservations. We weren't seated for 45 minutes. Excellent food, but I won't return. Severely mismanaged."

  • "We had a 7PM reservation, and were seated at 8PM. Our appetizer was brought to our table, the sauce was warm, the chicken was cold. We ordered the lamb and chicken, and received a combination plate with beef. People were complaining about waiting and although they came in later, those that complained were seated first. I would not go back. The food was mediocre. I have eaten there before and it was quite good, however, I would no longer return. The desert was great- however, that is all I can rate high."

  • "I went here with my husband and daughter for a small celebratory dinner. It had a nice ambiance although we couldn't see a whole lot. We sat near the entry door and kitchen and I would ask to be seated elsewhere next time. There was an upstairs which we did not get a chance to checkout. Our server was awesome. He knew it was our first time, both at the restaurant and with Persian food, so he took the time to explain everything. He was very friendly and pleasant. All the food seemed very authentic but I must warn you, the portions are HUGE. We enjoyed it a lot and would go back. I recommend others give it a try."

  • "This was our first time at the Persian Room. We were somewhat leery based on some of the reviews, but I don't know what the naysayers were thinking. Our experience was excellent from start to finish. We were seated promptly. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. The cocktails were very good and generous. The food was delicious. Being first timers, we stuck to lamb shish-kebabs. I had the basmati rice. My husband chose the Adas Polo rice, which was especially good. We had an early (5:30) reservation. The noise level definitely rose as the restaurant filled up. But it wasn't so bad that we couldn't carry on a conversation. We plan to go back and try some other items on the menu."

  • "It took 30 minutes to be seated (with a reservation). There was absolutely NO PLACE to wait during those 30 minutes. The restaurant did not use guest pagers. Waiters and waitresses with heavy food trays had to weave through the guests waiting to be seated. When a new table came open, the hostess took literally five minutes trying to find the guests for the free table, as again, they don't use pagers. So the hostess milled all through the inside crowd calling out a name, then went outdoors to call out the name. Watching the inefficiency of the system was irritating after waiting for so long. Once seated, our waiter was overwhelmed and slow to provide service, possibly from being assigned too many tables. The food was good."

  • "Rate Explanations Overall : A request to cancel one dish resulted in the entire being cancelled. We had the time to wait for our meal. Food : One dinner companion was Iranian and commented the lamb was not as tender as it could have been. Perhaps the lamb was aged more than typical. I would have been none the wiser and thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Service : Aside from the cancelled order, service was excellent. This was my first visit and I look forward to returning."

  • "We are regular customers of the Persian Room however the service the last several times has left much to be desired. Our latest visit was on a Monday night and our waitress forgot our coffee all together, poured our water over her thumb into our glass and began clearing the table before we were finished with our meal. We were never asked if we would like desert....just given our check and off she went. Very disappointing."

  • "The round table was perfect for the 6 of us. The pita bread and hummus was excellent. But, when our dinners were served, one of us did not receive the dinner, but did receive a plate full of rice. She waited for at least 15 minutes before the meal came. At that time, the rice was cold. Everyone else at the table had eaten half of their dinners already. We mentioned to the server that the rice was cold. She said she could bring more, but we were concerned that it would take another 15 minutes, so we decided not to ask for more. By the way, they give you way too much rice! It takes up most of the plate. But, the lamb and filet mignon was very tasty."

  • "We have eaten at Persian room many times before and every time we loved it. That is except this last occasion!! They got greedy , over booked and lost all that was good!! Started introducing buffet , food was old and cold!! Noise level exceeded fast food restaurant and seating arrangement was worse than Dennys!! Change your way or you lost this customer! There is many other choices out there."

When my family and friends visit from the east coast, we're off to the PR for dinner. The interior design is classy and unique and there is plenty of room between tables. You can always count on a delicious meal."

  • "It was my Moms bday and she wanted to try something new. she loves ethnic food but this fell short of our expectation. Food was good. I had the mahi-mahi and rice. Large portion. Bar was bad--two people in my party sent back their drinks because they couldn't figure out how to make a Mai-Tai or Mojito. I stuck with wine- so no brainier. Most of the reviews I read said to stay away from mixed drinks and they were right on. Server was average. He was nice, but didnt explain any of the dishes or have any recommendation. Would be nice to have some input and enthusiasm for at least one dish. Now that I know what to expect, would go back. But for a first timer,they could have been more helpful. See note below"

  • "We were on time for our reservation but still had to wait for 30 minutes for a table. Appetizers took another 30 minutes. We arrived at 7 pm but didn't eat a single morsel until slightly after 8 pm. That being said, once the food actually arrived it was fantastic. We had lamb shanks, fillet mignon skewers and koobideh kabbob skewers. The koobideh was our favorite. By a long shot."

  • "The pita bread here is freshly made and it shows. Hands down the best pita bread I have ever had. We ordered a combination platter and it was huge. Plenty to feed all 4 of us with leftovers. The best dish was the Cornish hen which was absolutely delicious. The lamb, not so much... which is odd because lamb is usually my favorite. It just didn't have the usual gaminess and was stringy. Service was excellent as the staff was very attentive and able to answer our questions about the menu. All in all, a good meal at a fair price. We will be back."
