Persian Room - Tucson
Always Lucious food & wonderful staff & service. The menu choices are amazing as well.
First time, will definitely be back. Huge portions.
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.
Its really not at the fine dining level very poor the plates were on the table the whole time even after ordering the tea and the sweets.
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.
Michael is just the best and of course the food! 5th time there and love the Mahi Mahi and all the food is just Fabulous!
Amazing! Best Dolmeh I have ever had. Yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuum!
Persian food is not just delicious, but also healthy. I also appreciate the work that goes in preparing everything with the freshest ingredients. Persian food is simply the best!
One of our favorite places to go! The food is excellent, and great service!
The device was excellent! The food was even better. Portions are generous, expect to take a doggie bag home. We will definitely return and have already recommended this Persian Room to friends!
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.
Really enjoyed this restaurant brought back so many memories as we use to live and work in the Middle East. The food was excellent and the staff was too. Definitely will be returning.
The food was delicious and the staff were super friendly. It was a delightful evening!
The food was excellent the sliced filet was tender and juicy. The portions were large and could serve two.
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.
Excellent service, food was as good as always, and they spaced out the tables for safety.
Loved the dessert... food was great, good temperature, salad was fresh and overall we enjoyed our dinner
Excellent food and service
Food was overpriced for the quality. Lentils were stale and the hummus was plain. Good portions sizes and ambiance was quite.
Great experience and wonderful food. It’s a little on the pricey side and go hungry because the portions are massive.
Amazing food with generous portions. My family and I loved the food. It was prepared and presented very well! The wine menu was excellent. Will definitely go back.
What a pleasant surprise! The service was outstanding and the food was very special.
Delicious food, amazing environment. Service was phenomenal.
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.
Excellent food, reasonable prices, attentive service in an upscale environment. Delightful!
This restaurant is a total experience in Persian food. The ambiance, decore, and the training of the staff transports you to a entirely new place.
Our favorite place for authentic Persian meal. We have been going to this restaurant for two years and always pleased with service and quality of food.
Great food and service. It was our third time here and we have never been disappointed.
Delicious! First time here, Michael was very friendly and knowledgeable about the food, gave great recommendations. The lamb and chicken koobideh were terrific! We will definitely be back!
Fanfreakingtastic! We can't wait to go back and we will be back soon. Delicious is an understatement!
the food, service ambiance and clenliness was EXCELLENT!
A great value on delicious offerings in a visually authentic environment.
Incredible food and fast service. Calm atmosphere, very classy
The lamb was outstanding and portions are more than adequate. It was uncrowded with a little imbalance in service.
The Persian Room was excellent! The ambience was wonderful with upscale decorations and beautiful music playing in the background. The service was great, and the food was excellent. The dinner servings were especially large, and we took home lots of delicious leftovers. We'll definitely go back soon, and tell all of our friends as well!
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.
