Why isn't everyone eating here?
Awesome food and belly dancing. I've had most everything on the menu and I haven't had anything bad yet. Vegetarian meals, chicken, beef, lamb...All awesome and belly dancing.

Four of us dined on Saturday
Four of us dined on Saturday night before Mother's Day. The place was busy. Loved the Belly Dancer - Nice extra!! Wine and beer took forever to be delivered. We were half way through our appetizer platter when the drinks appeared. The bartender was delivering all of the drinks. Not very efficient. Platter was okay (the one at Lucia is better!). Entrees are huge, mainly due to rice servings. Lamb shank was the smallest I have ever seen in a restaurant. Cornish hen dish was huge and delicious. Pars Kabab was big, but our friend said it was not filet mignon -- too tough. Gyro plate was very good. Sohan desert was incredibly good. The guys enjoyed the Turkish coffee. We will go back again, and make sure we go when the belly dancer is there!!

Good Choice For a Special Occasion
Of the many menu choices, the four diners in our group each made a different selection. The food was appetizing in presentation, delicious in flavors, and the portions were generous. We dined at 6 p.m.; it was quiet until the belly dancer performed. We would return for a special occasion.

Our server was fantastic.
Our server was fantastic. The food was good, but nothing outstanding. It was a LOT of food, and expensive, but it was a cool experience to sit on the floor.

Unusual place; okay for vegetarians
We've lived in Albuquerque several decades and eaten at almost every fine dining place. Pars is quite unusual, and it would have been unusual when we lived in South Florida and even now when we eat in the Miami area frequently. We're not vegans, so there were limited selections except for various kabobs. As aficionados of rare meats, the filet mignon and lamb were a little disappointing; cut up in small pieces and skewered is not the way to cook quality cuts of rare meat. Rice was about the only carb accompaniment, and other sides weren't abundant. The Greek salads were good and plentiful, but the desert choices were limited. The website and other advertising portray Kasbah and belly dancers, not a strip center bistro with zero dancers.

A nice little surprise. Good food and atmosphere. Only caution is we were a little under dressed in shorts and a t-shirt.
We will go back

Quiet music and beautiful decor definitely made the restaurant inviting. The dishes were not over-seasoned and there was delightful variety in flavors. The server was very attentive and the servings were quite generous. Though we missed the belly dancer, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and will return.

this was a wonderful experience for the two of us, we have been wanting to eat at a place like Pars Cuisine and now that we did we were not disappointed at all. The food is very good, we started out with a salad and the house dressing for the salad was very good we really recommend getting the house salad dressing, we then had our main meal and then desert and we were not disappointed with any of the food it was a very good experience and we're looking forward to going back.

Best Kept Secret in Albuquerque!
Excellent food and an excellent value. The seasonings were just right and it was obvious great care was made for presentation. Staff was knowledgeable and pleasant. Authentic style I have only found in Los Angeles. I didn't know Albuquerque had such a restaurant. I will be back!

The wait staff was very attentive and suggested a different menu option based on what I had asked for that was a better value and better fit my likes.

Excellent meal, but music
Excellent meal, but music was much too loud; had to yell to be heard across the table.

Tasty surprise off the I-25
Pars is a true surprise to find in an otherwise bland business park development. Tucked aside the edge of a parking lot and squeezed into a row of what would otherwise be office / retail shops, the world changes once inside its doors. The Persian / Middle Eastern decor is very well done and sets a nice ambience right from the start. On special nights the Pars features belly dancers to entertain you as you dine.
The food is universally excellent and very nicely done. All quite tasty and a nice break from the traditional fare in the area. The wine list adds to experience and the wonderful desserts nicely finish it all off. And all for a very reasonable price!

Great food and atmosphere. We would enjoy having the Greek wine Retsina on the menu. And would love to have a main course salad that we had in the past that included salmon.
