Great food and terrific service. Generous portions. Chicken was tender and flavorful and the beef was delicious. Saffron rice was tasty and plentiful.

Wife and I had a 5:30 reservation, but happened to be on that side of town around 2pm and dropped in to see if we could be seated early. Lady at the front desk was extremely courteous, noticed that we had a later reservation, and seated us immediately. Our dining experience could honestly not have been better. The complimentary flat bread with butter, onions and herbs was a great beginning. We ordered the yogurt and cucumber dip was refreshing. Our meal was the Persian Room Special. Wow! Very generous portions. Wonderful flavor. Plenty left over for a meal the following evening. We will be back.

We were very disappointed in this restaurant, particularly after all the good reviews. Service was extremely slow, the food very bland and overcooked. Although the setting is lovely, would not recommend.

This was our second visit to this place. We really enjoy ambiance and food. Servers are very friendly. It was good to see better wine list with many affordable choices. This definitely a place to go out with group and enjoy family style dinner. It will be nice to get few more vegetarian options.

We enjoyed our food very much. Wait staff helpful explaining menu items. However our appetizer humuus order was forgotten and arrived with entrees after we reminded waitress to put it in. Also soup ordered as appetizer arrived with meal. Other than these hiccups we enjoyed our dinner very much and will likely return.

This was our first visit to the Persian Room and we will definitely be back. We chose a combination platter with half salad/rice at the waiter's suggestion. Everything was delicious, including leftovers the next day. It was an early weekday night so the dining room was quiet and good for conversation.

This was our second visit to The Persian Room, and it did not disappoint! The food was delicious, and the service was very attentive. We enjoyed our Barg, both chicken and beef, as if was cooked to perfection. I would recommend getting the optional 1/2 rice, 1/2 Greek salad option with your entree otherwise it may be too much rice for some. It's an additional charge but so worth it. Our martinis were also very good. We will definitely be back many more times. It's a good idea to make a reservation if you plan to dine later than 6:00 in the evening as it gets very busy after that.

Excellent food and service. Large portions of interesting food and servers who helped with choices. Food came fast and was well presented. Flat bread was made in full view of the dining room. We took enough food home for another meal but still made room for dessert. It was nice to have a beautiful room and attractive plates of food.

The food was excellent. We especially enjoyed the speciality rice dishes. It was our first visit so the waiter helped us select dishes. His suggestions were most helpful. Although the restaurant was very full the service was attentive and outstanding. We will be returning since the menu is extensive.

Persian food is wonderful and The Persian Room brings this experience to Tucson. We have been to their location in Scottsdale and have been waiting for them to expand. Try the different rices! It is a great dining experience, highly recommended!

Poor service and severely overpriced food. Ordered an appetizer platter to share so everyone could try 3 different things and the portions were so small it looked like it was for 1-2 people max. ALL of the entrees were overcooked and super dry- Including shimp and scallops, salmon, chicken, lamb, etc... no one was happy with their food.

My friend and I enjoyed lunch. It was a Saturday so the special lunch menu was not available, we had to order from the dinner menu.
I had the beef shish kebab and my friend ordered the lamb shanks. Both dishes came with rice. We both loved our food. Well prepared and delicious.

This was a family reunion. We loved the food. So much variety and tastes. We ordered hors d’oeuvres. Kash O’Bademjan an eggplant dish with nuts, was really delicious. Also, the Appetizer Platter had a great variety of tasty dishes. The rack of lamb was really good. Recommend this highly. The mahi-mahi also excellent.
This restaurant is a welcome addition to the dining choices in the Tucson area.
