great place for a great family meal – Daily buffet is very generous and most of the foods offered are done just right. It does not get must better than this- an authentic persian meal the way it is supposed to be.
The dessert menu is rather poor and repetitive- should include a little more fresh fruits/ pastries/ sweets.
Female waitresses are very slow, sometimes just outright rude- they do not help this otherwise excellent establishement. With a few small changes this could be a 5 star dining establishement
Worst Service ever had – Had 3 waitresses and 1 manager who sat and did nothing. Couldn't even get their attention as they sat and talked to each other as if they had no customers. We were one of three tables and no one got service. All were upset. Some banged on plates to get attention and some yelled across empty restaurant. I thought that was rude, but it appeared the only to get service.
Good but could be better – I have been here many times. Both ala Carte and buffet. Never had any issue in the ala carte. I have the chicken kebabs or barg... both are excellent and are much better than the buffet versions (hot and soft).
The buffet has a lot of meat and veggie stuff. Overall a good value.
Their starter bread (lavash I think) is the best.
The service could be a little better. The big TV in the dining room of a classy restaurant is a disaster! I dont know who came up with that idea.
The prices could be a little lower for better value after all they are in a dumpy location. A Saturday buffet would be a good option.
Not worth your time – The food is actually not that bad, but I have had MUCH better. The rice was dry and the meat was a little too fatty. The service was absolutely awful. The waitress sat there and laughed loudly the entire time. Other staff of the restaurant sat at a table together and talked about people and as we left they continued to laugh and be rude. You are supposed to be a classy restaurant and treat your paying customers with respect. If you must be loud and rude, please go to the back, or wait till your customers are gone. You can laugh at whatever all you want, the joke is ultimately on YOU because you are ruining the reputation of your restaurant. Also, the cups and utensils were very dirty. The guy came out with the bread on a small plate holding it with his bare hands so it did not fall off. It was disgusting!
Basically what I am saying is that if you want true quality Persian food from the respectful classy Iranians that SHOULD be serving it, THIS IS NOT THE PLACE TO GO. And the guy in the connected Persian Grocery store is the RUDEST individual I have ever met. I was very disappointed with my experiences.
A very enjoyable restaurant. – I've eaten here several times and shopped in the attached Middle Eastern grocery store. I've spent a large portion of my adult life in the Middle East and know what good food should taste like.
I have found that the servers are willing to spend time with the customers and explain the food items. On one occasion when the food preparation was slow, they apologized profusely and did not charge.
The portions are large and generous and the food has always been delicious.
Unlike the other reviewers, I never noticed anything unsanitary at all or been unable to communicate with the servers.
Afterwards, since my family loves cooking Middle Eastern food, we enjoy the opportunity to shop for hard to find ingredients in the grocery store.
I highly recommend Perseopolis for an enjoyable evening. In fact, I just made reservations for a dinner party tomorrow night.
Good food, decent service, could be better – This used to be my favorite Persian restaurant. Then they stopped service fresh bread automatically for buffets And they increased the price. Plus, they were getting to be slow in filling the beef section of the buffet. So I stopped going regularly for a while. But now, the restaurant seems to be back close to its original quality.
This used to be coowned by the guy who ended up starting Rumi's Kitchen. The quality seemed sporadic under the new owners. But now things are better.
I have had their alacarte in the past, but not recently. Solid good quality kabobs of all types. The price is reasonable though a tad on the pricey side.
Let me spend more time on the buffet review. They have a little bit more variety on the buffet. They have good stuffed grape leaves as a regular item now. They have three beds of different rice, one of them being white with a saffron streak. Grilled tomatoes that used to be served during dinner along with the kabobs are now frequently available during buffets.
Other daily lunch buffet items are chicken kabobs, beef filet strips, beef koubideh, lamb shank. Then they also serve two other meat dishes rotating among lamb stew, chicken promegranate sweet stew. They all taste good.
They got fresh fruit from time to time. And for a while, they had this bad habit of putting out cold flat bread stacked in a basket. Now , they have gone back to serving hot flatbread with poppy seeds to you personally upon request. I find this to be the tastiest bread of all the persian places.
And I have noticed the meat trays getting filled regularly in my last few recent trips. Hopefully, this place won't slip up again like they did in the past.
Suggestions: I wish they would add a Saturday afternoon buffet.
Dis-bloody-gusting – I'm an American woman who has worked in the middle east extensively. I speak decent English, French, and Arabic. I went here with a group (the mandatory 18% gratuity was a source of much derogatory comment, since the service was inattentive and rude). I wished to order from the very limited vegetarian menu and asked (in all 3 languages) whether the food was vegan. I got blank stares, rolled eyes, tossed head...a complete failure to care whether or not the food met my needs. The server then proceeded to recommend (in Arabic) that I just eat from the $12.99 lunch menu, despite their being only 1-2 boring vegetarian dishes and despite my still having gotten no real answer to the question of vegan food. There is plenty of delicious vegan Persian food, most of it easy to prepare with ingredients that were obviously used in preparing the other dishes. Any decent server would have offered to speak to the chef. This one wanted me to pay $16 for rice and a dessicated veggie shish-kabob. And if my cleaner was as neglectful of corners as theirs appears to be, I'd fire her. The place was...not exactly filthy but certainly not clean. Yuck. They reminded me of the sort of place that parks itself by the airport and lures the tourists in before they know any better.
Horrible, Nasty and bad tempered – Nasty and bad tempered
Found a hair in the rice, ask the waitress to change it but found another or the same hair in the ?new? rice?I guess it was the same rice. The waitresses are the worst, they are rude and they want you to eat what they tell you.
best place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!cute waiters – it is a best restaurant i've ever been for past 3 years. the servers are very friendly and helpfull(give you really good advice, if you are not familiar with persian food) and very very cute girls!!!!
Food is ALWAYS perfect. (lamb, beef) Also,they make their own bread. it is good plase for party,so much fun friday and sutr.
This was my first time at Persepolis and my last. Went with a group of people (10) and wanted to order from the menu. Staff was NO help in educating me on what everything was and I felt "bullied" into eating from lunch buffet (NOT WORTH $12.99). After stumbling through the line and asking what everything was, I was reluctantly told what a few things were; but, clearly, they were annoyed that I wasn't knowledgeable about their food. After lunch when the bill came, I was shocked to see they added 18% gratuity (WHAT? TO FILL MY WATER GLASS ONCE AFTER I FLAGGED DOWN THE WAITER!!!). 18% gratuity for a buffet?! What a rip-off! Now, two hours later and almost $20.00 poorer, I'm hungry! Bad and expensive food and even worse service. Don't go!
