Tonight was my second time to Persian Room. My husband and I celebrated 56 years of marriage and I had been here in June with a friend so I suggested the restaurant to him. He loved it! The decor, the food and the service! We plan to go again! We took some food home for our son, and he couldn’t eat it all either! We both had the Koobideh, I had the lamb and he had the beef! We also had a side of Humuus and it was delish! We had the rose water, saffron and pistachio ice cream and the server gifted us with a complimentary Baklava with a candle since we were celebrating our Anniversary. Can’t wait to go again!

I looked forward to eating Persian food.
I did enjoy the ambiance of the place. The service was good. The prices on the menu were considerably higher than the internet menu prices.
The dishes we had were ok. The soup was a bit cool.

We had a lovely dinner here with friends from out of town. Our server made some good recommendations for those of us not familiar with Middle Eastern foods. The servings are huge! We had a booth and the noise level was low, so we were able to hear and talk with our friends.

Pulling up to a strip mall, I wasn't sure what to expect. But the inside is beautifully done, and noise levels were low enough to allow for conversation between all members of our party. The unique then flat bread served with butter, sprigs of basil, and sweet raw onion was delicious and unique. The lamb was exquisite, and cooked to order. The rice with lentils, raisins, and dates was a perfect accompaniment. Service was quick, although an ordered salad never showed up. And how could they run out of the Persian cakes and other desserts so early (we were seated about 6:30)? I guess the desserts will be on our radar for next time. A long trip from the east side, but worth it.

It was delicious! Very friendly servers and it was fun to try different food. It was a little pricey, like $100 for two people but we did have cocktails. I would go there as a special treat!

A wonderful taste of all things Persian. Wonderful portions of tasty rice, veggies and steak. Will try the lentil soup next time. Popped in for a food discovery experience and was not disappointed.

The food was well-prepared with generous portions. The restaurant is quite elegant and upscale, especially for Tucson, though we were comfortable in casual clothes. The service was attentive and we are sure to be back as often as possible.

The appetizer plate was not good at all nor was the sticky rice. The main courses were average. This is the second time we ate there. The first was much better.

It was my first time at this restaurant and I was very impressed. The ambiance drew us in. Then we were bowled over by the professional service and outstanding food. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we stayed until closing time talking and enjoying the delicious fare. I highly recommend that you try this restaurant. You won't be sorry.

Our first visit to the Tucson restaurant. We been to the Scottsdale restaurant more than a dozen times. Atmosphere is absolutely gorgeous and the food was excellent. My Lamb Chops were overcooked, I asked for medium rare and got well done. I did not send back, but should have. Portions were large and service was a team effort. No complaints.

We love this place but be warned; On the weekend they do not have their lunch menu so you pay for dinner prices. If I had known we would have gone during the week. Plates are about the same but much more expensive. Still a great place. Food and service are exceptional and the ambiance is amazing.

This was our first time at the Persian Room and I must say, it is beyond what we expected.

The service from the moment we walked in was welcoming. We had Michael for our server. I appreciate his service and the way he really recommended plates for us. The food is delicious and I am sad that it's over, I wanted the taste to last longer.

So if you're questioning to make that drive (for those of us that live Central Tucson, East and etc.) to try this place, do it, you won't regret it.

This was a delightful evening with friends and delicious food. The spices and flavors are incredible and the presentation was superb. The waiter was trying but seemed a bit disorganized and didn’t fit with the rest of the theme. Still a good experience.

The star rating tells all. The disappointment was that they refused to honor my OpenTable $25. award card. What’s with OpenTable allowing this and not replying to my email message to them to discuss this situation. I don’t know if I will continue to use the app if they renege on their offers. I would like to hear from OpenTable!

Took a couple of friends to the Persian Room this past week. Their first time, our second. As we pulled up, they were seriously wondering where in the world we were taking them. We asked them to trust us, and once they walked in the front doors, they were honestly wowed. The first few minutes, they just kept making extremely positive comments. Waitress was extremely gracious. Supporting staff (extra water, pita bread, etc.) were fantastic. Of course, as all the other reviews attest, we all took home food after filling our bellies.

I don't understand the complaints about the prices. Honestly, at any decent (not even high dollar) restaurant you will pay between $18-$28 per plate. Anywhere in town. That's what you pay here. The prices are extremely in-line with any good quality restaurant. This place is well above "good quality"!

Love this place
Have been to their restaurant in Phoenix several times; didn’t even know they had one near us in Tucson until recently
Food is amazing: we travel the world regularly - have not been to Iran yet - so very familiar with middle eastern cuisine and The Persian Room does it great - and with unbelievable variety
