The food is superb, generous portions of nicely seasoned and well cooked meats and vegetables and mounds of superb Basmati rice, preceded by freshly baked flatbread served with basil and raw onion. The service matches the food, our waitress was very friendly and helpful. You can't go wrong here!

The restaurant exceeded our expectations which were based on reviews we had read and a recommendation from a Persian friend. Bill, the waiter was very good, attentive, pleasant and knowledgeable about the food. This will be on our regular list.

Had great surprise party at the Persian Room. Reserved upstairs next to the bar. Had many specials to choose from including drinks specials, and 1/2 price appitizers. Quick service, as soon as we were done with our appitizers our entrees showed up. The bartendender was always there with our drink orders.

Mother's Day in Persia
We celebrated Mother's Day early with a wonderful multi-generational dinner. We noted on Open Table that we needed a high chair for 10-month-old and they cleverly put us near the hostess stand. So our noisy granddaughter bothered no other diners and we could relax. The menu was amazing. Everyone was delighted. Vegetarians, picky little kids, and caveman carnivores. Generous portions provided some take-homes. Then we could enjoy the rose-flavored ice cream and baklava. So good!

Mother's Day -- very busy
Mother's Day -- very busy -- many large groups -- wait staff had to hustle, but stayed attentive to guests. Time from order to being served longer tha usual, but understandale. Enjoyable mixture of culture of guests. Pleasant experience.

The food was wonderful! I would definitely go there again.

Excellent Persian Restaurant
Visited The Persian Room for our Special Anniversary and were pleasantly surprised. We were greeted warmly and offered a very romantic table for two on the first level.
We started off with the Chicken Eggplant Barani and with the hot pita that was served made for a very satisfying appetizer. Two Entrees we ordered were the Chicken & Koobideh Barg and the Gheimeh bademjan. Both were very flavorful but the Barg was certainly by far much better. We upgraded our rice to the Zereshk as per the prior reviews and it was wonderful.
Overall we have a great time. The next time we might just decide to order an appetizer and then share an entree since it truly is alot of food.

Birthday at Persian Room
We took our daughter, who is 25, to the Persian Room for lunch for her birthday. The food was delicious as always and the service was good. It would be nice if they had the handmade bread at lunch but I can see that it would be alot of work to have someone make the bread for just a lunch crowd.
5/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was great having my husband birthday there..Manager and employees were cooperative..
And the food is the best.
5/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
Favorite place for special occasions! Portions are big, if you get the half rice half salad, you will be able to have enough left overs for a second meal!
5/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
Was my first time eating at the restaurant. Fantastic food, great atmosphere , good service.. I honestly couldnt say anything bad about the experience. Will definitely will eat there again.

This was such an amazing place to dine at! The staff was so helpful and nice. When I walked in I was greeted by a gorgeous staircase, the decor was great and the ambience was romantic. The wine list was decent, and the portion sizes are big. Plenty enough for lunch the next day... and the food, magnificent! Fresh naan brought to the table, and a great selection of entrees.
I recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a lot for their money!
6/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Delightful and authentic
Delicious food! The restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere. The menu is large and varied. Portions are quite generous! I'd gladly go back next time I'm in town. And don't forget to visit the Caspian Market next door hitch has a nice variety of Persian foods.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food ! Great Service!
We picked this off the google restaurant search and then decided to use open table to get reservations. The food was very good and priced right; I am recommending this restaurant to anyone who wants a great selection of Persian food. 5 STARS.

Chicken and meat Kebabs were delicious, juicy and tender.

Persian Room never disappoints!
We've been to Persian Room on a number of occasions, but hadn't gone in a long while because we moved away from the Scottsdale area. Decided on a whim to go there for dinner, & was delightfully reminded at how fantastic the food is as well as the service & ambiance. Our server Nikki was attentive, personable, helpful, & a pro at add-on selling. She convinced us to get 2 desserts as opposed to 1! No complaints though. Everything was delicious, from the hummus & eggplant delight, to our main course - shish kabob combo platter for 2. Tried the loobia polo for the first time in place of basmati rice, that's a meal in itself! Portions were generous & fresh. We'd def. come back again, & bring friends and family to convert them as well!

The Persian room serves excellent
The Persian room serves excellent Persian food in a warm atmosphere. Despite its size, it is intimate; like being in someone's dining room. The menu has lots of choices and the staff is willing to accommodate individual needs and tastes. Portions are generous enough for large appetites and great for lunch the next day, too. I plan to visit there again.

We took out o town family
We took out o town family and had a lovely time. We were seated immediately even though all of our party had not yet arrived. The waitress was patient as we took a while to catch up and then look at the menu. Food was very good, we had the appetizer tray which could be a meal in itself. The portions are large so we all took home boxes.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
good and tastie
Great service and nice recomendations. Liked the food and variety, lots to try and experience. Will definitely go back and try more!

My husband and I dined here with some friends who were dining at the Persian Room for the first time. For us the Persian Room is always a favorite, so we were so happy when our friends enjoyed it as much as we always do. The food, the service and the ambiance are all so nice and unique to the Scottsdale area. The portions are always large so make sure to save room for the delicious baklava at the end.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Unique menu and setting
We had a lamb,chicken, Iranian meatloaf combo and it was both different and delicious. The flavors were new to us adding to the fun of the occasion. Served with saffron rice the dish was somewhat dry and seemed to need a element to add moisture. It was delicious nonetheless.

Saturday night at the Persian Room
We arrived at 7:00 with a reservation. The restaurant was very busy. Our waiter seemed in a big hurry about everything....even when we were ordering. After we had finished dinner, he presented us with our bill....never offered us coffee or desert. It was just get us in and get us out! That being said our meal was delicious.

Great for an evening dinner.
Great for an evening dinner. Do not arrive at the place too early. Our first visit was was more impressive than the second one but we were there too early. Also better service during our first visit
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We picked The Persian Room because it was convenient to our out-of-town guest. We dined early (6:00) on a Friday. The ambiance was pleasant and comfortable. I'm sure a later time in the evening would add to the experience. Complementary pita bread and butter (also basil leaves, parsley and sweet onion) arrived quickly as did the wait staff. Service was attentive but not rushed. Dinner was very good and generous if a bit simple. The flavors were interesting but on the light side for exotic fare. Presentation was impressive on large heated platter with plenty of meat and rice (rice was looked perfect but could use a bit more seasoning). Overall it was a good experience and we will dine here again.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great but could be better.
I really did like the food, service and authenticity of the Persian Room. On the plus side, the food arrived quickly, was hot and very tasty. More than enough to fill me up and then some. I have lived in the middle east and have tried many local restaurants in that theme, and this is the best one I have found.

Had our third anniversary dinner here. Went late night 30 minutes before closing. Received great service, awesome food and a romantic atmosphere. I couldn't have asked for better. We ordered the chefs special and had plenty of leftovers. She loved it!
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had the lamb shank it was good. My husband had the vegetable kabob he didn't like it as much. Fast service.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great surprise!
A friend of ours, who is from Iran, recommended the Persian Room to us when she heard we were going to be in Scottsdale. Great recommendation! The food was different and interesting, with flavors that were new and pleasant. The atmosphere was fun and rich, and the service was fantastic! Our waiter went over the ENTIRE menu with us, and we never felt rushed or neglected.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I am a non-Persian American. But I have lived in iran and eaten fine Persian food there and in the U.S. The food here is magnificent. The atmosphere is even more impressive. It makes you feel like you are in an ancient Achaemenid palace. My daughter is half-Iranian and I wanted to take her to a restaurant that would showcase fine Persian culture and cuisine. It is now her favorite restaurant, as well as mine. We took my mother here for her 92nd birthday at her request. And she loved it.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great food as always
Love the persian room for consistent and wonderful food, great service and ambiance you can't get anywhere else. Dress up or down, more formal downstairs and more relaxed upstairs. Always a fun place to eat.

Took my wife here for our 20th anniversary and cannot wait to return. Food was excellent, portions were huge and our service was excellent! Freshly made pita, onion & basil came out first. We ordered small Greek salad, mast o khiar and sultans dinners (barg, koobideh & rice). Reminded me of when I was a child and we lived in Tehran, Iran. The server was friendly and our glasses were always full. He even brought out a complimentary dessert of rose water ice cream & baklava for our anniversary. Prices were reasonable for the quality & quantity - we had the leftovers for dinner the next night!
