Dark Meat Saffron Chicken
boneless chicken thigh marinated in saffron and onion
beef, green leafy vegetables, green herbs, red beans and dried lime served over steamed basmati rice
The quality of food was horrible it has gone down since 2019
Service was not pleasant.
Our table was private and distanced from other diners. Food was delicious and service excellent. Excellent value and ample portions. Our friends loved it too. Hope to return soon.
Food and service fantastic. The dessert was disappointing, baklava was not that great.
The food here is delicious—expertly seasoned, with flavors that are different and irresistible. Service is gracious, friendly and professional. This well-run restaurant is consistently great!
Excellent food and service. High end at economical prices
Bad experience was very average not accommodating
Fantastic food and lovely restaurant. The salmon was perfectly cooked. Thank you! I'll be coming back.
Great party - all guests appreciated the yummy food and friendly service
Excellent attentive service. Food has great flavors timing of courses was excellent
My first eating Persian food and it was a winner! The people were super friendly and attentive. The food was absolutely delicious. Highly recommended!
Interesting menu, wonderful food, great service, very pleasant.
I was just looking for a easy lunch spot in that general neighborhood. I chose Persepolis because it didn't seem to fussy, but promised to be different than the usual European or American places. The food was surprisingly delicious. Really well-flavored and exactly what I had hoped it would be. And the service was exactly right too. Attentive and friendly without being suffocating. I will definitely go out of my way to return.
It's always a delight to dine at Persepolis....excellent food for a reasonable price, wonderful service and great ambience. We love introducing friends to our favorite neighborhood eatery and always look forward to being there....this time was no exception.
We were looking forward to dining here and our server, Jimmy was wonderful He was humorous, attentive and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the appetizers and the Beef Stew was delicious. I had the Lamb skewer...it melted in my mouth and the flavor was heaven! We will definitely go back. We love the restaurant, food and the staff.
Second visit in six weeks because the food is delicious. While neither the service nor the ambiance are remarkable, they're better than one might expect at these prices
The vegetarian food and rices were impressive. The poultry was better than the meat! We, a large group, after a concert, really enjoyed it. The appetizers were less exciting than the dill rice and stews.
Great as usual
This was my first time going to Persepolic since Covid. And, happily, it remains a very good, reasonably-price restaurant, with excellent service. We had eggplant and salad appetizers and a few different kebabs, everything was terrrific. They did shorten the menu - like all restaurants have recently - but there are still lots of choices. I will be back again.
Always a pleasure to got to Persepolis...great food and fun ambience at a very reasonable price. The waitstaff are unfailingly courteous and helpful.
One of our favorite restaurants in New York. Service is good, food is delicious especially all the kebabs and the sour cherry rice!
Everything was fine but we found ourselves swatting away flies. Very annoying.
The appetizers were average, the food was very good (beef stew, fish), the rice was excellent.
this was our first time back to Persepolis since the pandemic, we used to eat there frequently and it did not disappoint. Food and service were excellent and they have new drink specials now which was great!!! we sat outside and it was very pleasant.
Wonderful Persian food. Good variety. Excellent wait staff. We will be back often.
Persepolis is one of my favorite restaurants. It's a lovely place to dine. The food never disappoints and I would recommend it to anyone who likes interesting delicious food.
Flavorful aromatic food.
Lovely find in the neighborhood. Will be back
So happy that we finally tried this spot! The service was amazing and the food was even better.
Food was great. Service also. The owner is very friendly.
Either for lunch or dinner Persepolis is a great choice
We had 2 appetizers-yogurt with garlic excellent. Beef stew very tasty and flavorful. Lamb shank meat fell off the bone, soft & juicy. Basmati rice with dill &favs beans made our taste buds dance.
Authentic and tasty Persian cooking, reasonable prices and good selection. The sour cherry rice is delicious! It would be nice to have an assortment of 3-5 mezze available as an appetizer, rather than having to order large individual portions.
Drink prices high. Food excellent. Service excellent. Good for carnivores or vegetarians, plenty of variety
Amazing food and service! I would go again!
Friendly service. Knowledgeable waiter. Food was good, large portions well prepared
Great place with good food and great staff! So glad they are nearby:)
We were two people booked for a mid-week lunch in mid-July, so the quiet room of 3 other tables is easily explained. The service was very attentive and polite. This was our first time with Persian food, and we found some dishes were spicy, others not. When ordering on a first visit, we recommend asking the staff about 'hot' or 'mild' on dishes that appeal. We will go back for more visits; it was a very good experience.
Great food -- they nailed my lamb shank (as good as my mother's!) and the sour cherry basmati rice is terrific. Great neighborhood place and the prices are reasonable, making it a place I'll return to more often than other places. Didn't have dessert but will try on my next visit. I look forward to trying other apps and mains as well.
It was wonderful. The food is outstanding, the service is excellent and I can’t wait to come back.
authentic food; very able and pleasant service; great neighborhood find
Everything was good— not amazing
