    The internet advertised as fine dining however, the food quality, taste and presentation was simply average. (Much manufactured taste, not scratch) Server was friendly and efficient. We get what we paid for so no argument (2 kids, 2 adults $200) thinking fine dining would yield more scratch offerings and command a higher price point. Overall, if in the area we would consider another visit.

    The Persian Room is exquisite. Large area with no need to be crowded. Choice of table or booth. I enjoyed my lamb shishkabob, rice and salad. I wish it came with a side of a sauce like tziki.

    The place was very nice inside. The decor was great. Made you feel relaxed. The food was very delicious! The server was very polite and explained the dishes we were interested in. OMG, the grape leaves were wonderful!! The only drawback was that the prices were a little expensive. However, with the Pandemic everything has gone up in price, Still, I will go back even if it's a 45 minute drive from the house.

    We had a wonderful dinner with my parents. The decor was beautiful and very different from most restaurants in Tucson. There was quite piano music in the background which made conversation easy. The food was delicious with very generous servings. I also want to mention the staff as they made our night even more enjoyable. They were friendly and informative.

    Nice place, good service and great food. It took a few minutes to be seated for our reservation, the place was packed in Saturday night, which is always a good sign for a place that is out off the way. The waitress explained all the different Persian dishes, and the food came very quickly, despite being very busy. We will return to taste more items from their extensive menu.

    We heard good things about the Persian Room. Will have to say, we will not be back. Food had no flavor and was way over priced. We usually give a restaurant a couple tries before the 4 of us will decide about it. But after this first visit, we ALL decided that we will not be back
