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.

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.

This place was just great and everything we were hoping for. We had visited the Scottsdale location years ago for a wedding reception and were very pleased when they opened a new spot in Tucson. By far it exceeded our expectations of the prior visit and we will be back! Great food, ambience and service!

We were excited to try the Parisian Room because we heard good things about it. However, our experience was pretty mediocre. The service was bad, our food arrived cold and over priced. There's was nothing authentic about it. We've had middle eastern food before and this is nothing compared. If you don't know the
difference you'll think its okay.

Everything about this place is great! The service was exceptional. We thought the food we ordered was lacking a sauce, so we asked the waiter if she could provide some. She said that sauce on the side was not done, but later provided us with the most delicious sauce that just gave the food so many more layers of flavors! What a fabulous place, will return and will tell others! Thank you!
