We ordered the Tour of Persia. It was wonderful. The Game Hen was moist. the Filet was Tender and the Lamb was perfectly spiced. The rice was delicious and memorable. The stew was also good. We went there on a Groupon, but will be coming back without it as the dinner was such a good deal. The decor is exotic. My wife is taking her sister there today.

We've been to the Persian Room a number of times. The first time was a surprise from my husband on my birthday - I am very interested in all sorts of cuisines and cultures and definitely interested in Persian food. We loved it and have been back several times, most recently bringing a friend on his birthday.

To someone trying out the food I recommend getting one of the Combination platters - varying dishes from the menu laid out on a tray, with appropriate trimmings. My husband and I usually get one of the Combination platters for two (there are several). It is way more than enough food, but the leftovers heat well. Dishes are made from molded ground beef or lamb, with skewered filet mignon, bits of cornish hen and different traditional stews (my favorite stew was made with pomegranite). The three of us ordered the Tour of Persia which is meant for three, but we again had plenty of leftovers. We ordered a traditional dessert of a yogurt based funnel cake drenched in honey, with 'donut holes' filled with a buttercream. Our guest was given a complimentary baklavah, which he loved.

Service was incredible - they are always very knowledgable about the entire menu and offer to make accommodations where possible - we ordered an appetizer of Tah-Din (crispy rice) and the server offered to split the accompanying stew between two possibilities so that we could try both, as well as the one that came with our platter.

His warmth and professionalism elevated the occasion for us.

The dining room is beautifully and traditionally decorated and lit so that we could see the food - and each other - but not glaring or intrusive.

In spite of the quality of the food and generosity of the portions, the Persian Room is surprisingly reasonable. We encourage everyone to go, and often, so that we don't lose this jewel to the Pandemic.

We went on the recommendation of a friend. Perfect choice! The staff were super friendly. There was no rush to get our orders in. The ambience was low key and beautiful. we ordered a sampling plate for two. It was delicious and huge! It would have easily fed 3 or 4. We will definitely go back again.

Food and service very good. We really liked the Appetizer of hummus, which was served with Warm pita bread. Our chicken kebabs entree, served with chopped salad and Persian rice, and roasted tomato was delicious. Sauvignon blanc, very smooth which we like. We would recommend to friends.

had drivin past several times and decided to give it a try. The environment and service were excellent but we both thought the food lacked flavor. Just meh. We've had lots of middle eastern food experiences and what we tried just had little to no flavor.

Staff over the top great.
Food delicious. Would have loved to add butter or a sauce of some kind, perhaps mint jelly to the massive amount of rice. It was a tad dry for me.
Going back in a few weeks with more friends.

This was our first visit to the Persian Room. We had high expectations based on what he had heard, and those expectations were met! The restaurant is lovely and comfortable. Our waiter, Michael, couldn’t have been more attentive and informative. He even brought my wife a small sample of her main dish order to make sure that she would like it! The appetizer sampler platter was enough for a meal for two, and every item was delicious. Both of us enjoyed our mains, and we brought home plenty as the servings were quite large. We did not sample any desserts. We will definitely look forward to our next visit!

This is a very popular restaurant on a Saturday night so try to make a reservation. and even then, there was a bit of a wait. There seemed to be some confusion as to the job of a host/hostess and communicating to waiting customers.
The food was very tasty and the portions range from very generous to huge. We (two of us) ordered a main dish each, a salad and another appetizer and it was way too much food. Our server was a lovely woman who was an absolute whirlwind.
I would go back but bear in mind it is a 45 minute drive from University of Arizona.

The service was slow...restaurant very busy so not the waitstaff's fault. The food was okay, but not great, and I probably wouldn't return. Overall, I was disappointed after having it recommended to me.
