Excellent food and server service. Only shortfall was my wife's meal initially came with the wrong rice she ordered. We had to wait 5 to 6 minutes until they brought out the correct meal for her.

Excellent meal for my wife and I along with a very attentive waiter who provided great service. Be prepared for a fairly high noise level, however it's worth putting up with.

Excellent food and service. We were there at 7:00pm and it was crowded and a bit noisy. This is a must visit restaurant for Middle Eastern Persian food. It also had a very diverse crowd...much to our pleasure.

Excellent food and service. Noisey. No parking and outside lights out making difficult for guest to find. Therwise, excellent?

The best persian food in all of Arizona. Service was outstanding, the upstairs ambiance made for a perfect birthday dinner for my wife. Did I say this was the best food in Arizona....

Food and service was great! First time here and our waiter was extremely helpful and friendly with helping us select our choices. Portions are big, so come with an appetite and prepare to take leftovers home ☺️

Food was delicious. I like the Humus, pita, basil, butter and onion before the main course. I was glad their soda fountain is working again.
We all ordered #34 Sultani Nadiri. The combination of Saffron rice, roasted tomato with Khobedi, filet mignon and chicken kabobs was awesome. I had to take the rest home. It was quiet a food experience for my two college age nephews. They both like the food. I highly recommend place.

My Mahi Mahi was excellent. However, my brother-in-law had lamb chops. Some were overcooked, others undercooked. I tried both, and they were chewy and not tender. I felt badly for him, but he did not complain to the server or manager.
As I said, my Mahi Mahi was superlative. I wold recommend to a friend, but not to order lamb chops.

First time at the Persian Room. We will be back. The yogurt and cucumber dip was wonderful as well as the lentil soup. Our entrees were the lamb shish kebab and the lamb loin. The lamb was cooked to our domes and was perfect. Do try the Persian Room if you haven’t you will enjoy it.

This is such a great place for a family. We love the hummus with eggplant, the byranai without chicken, the taziki, and one of the family platters, which say they are for two, but will easily feed four. They have great naan bread also. This is such a value.

Food is always good and the atmosphere wonderful for dining experience. Tonight the service was off balance. Dirty dishes left on table when no longer needed and no plates provided when main entree that was being shared arrived. Tonight was not the norm for level of service expected at this restaurant.

Food was amazing. Waitress wasn't too happy to be serving us for some reason. Basically threw a fake candle in the middle of our table and said here have some ambience. But the restaurant was lovely and the food was wonderful.

4 of us went for dinner. Our friends arrived before we did and were shown to our table. We arrived and were told that they had already been seated and they were "over there". We were NOT shown to our table. We have never been to the PERSIAN ROOM and this was our first (and probably last) visit. We had no idea where "over there" meant because the restaurant is large and has many rooms. So I stood next to the receptionist while my husband went in search of where "over there" was.
THIS IS NOT THE WAY YOU INTRODUCE PEOPLE TO YOUR RESTAURANT!!!!!
On the table was a half of an onion and herbs. NO EXPLANATION as to why or how you are supposed to eat it.
I ordered the Lamb Shish-Ka-Bab which was very dry and some of the pieces where tough. I left 3 pieces on my plate. My husband ordered the Mahi-Mahi which he thought was good but his rice was very, very dry and it was left on his plate. Our friends ordered the Lamb Shanks which he thought was very good and his wife ordered a vegetarian dish which she liked. But all of us thought the rice was very dry and too much of it to make it look like it is a full dish.
Between the "UNGREETING" we received and the very dry rice as well as my lamb kababs, we won't be recommending this restaurant.

Beautiful surroundings and great food. Too pretty of a place to have a television above the bar though. Ditch the television so dining companions can enjoy each other.

The food was good. The service was very slow. I had a reservation and they seated us in a room that was like a closed in porch. They did move us but then we didn’t get food for over an hour. Not sure it normal but not over friendly about it either.
