Went here with friends and were not disappointed. The restaurant is very meticulously decorated with mirrors, colored glasses and different pictures of paintings. The staff are friendly and the food was absolutely delicious. My favorite was the bell pepper stuffed with minced lamb and yogurts. The olive salad is good but quite sour so would highly suggest eating it with... More

Had dinner with family and friends. Food was good & the lady who served us was very service oriented. Knew the menu well and suggested meals for us to try. This is one restaurant with good ambience and well trained service providers.

Nice place. Great service and food. Ask for the lamb chops. Drinks are a bit overpriced, but thats in all Doha.

Yikes & overpriced. The ambiance is dated. The cold appetizers were ok; the hot appetizers were too oily. The biggest fail was the main course. We ordered Kabab (ground lamb and beef filet - Koobideh & Soltani). The meat was flavorless. The rice was old and dry (reheated). The usual condiments were either badly executed (grilled tomato) or missing (egg... More

Husband and I are avid eaters, seekers for good quality eats across food joint (cheap to expensive), however, Doha has been surprising us with expensive pricing for low quality foods. This isn't the best persian restuarant you'll eat in, but it's also not the worst. Service is great, they check on you every once in a while to make sure... More

I had never tried Persian food before, but if it is like my experience at Parisa, I love it! I will probably return to this place to try more dishes, as I went alone and could not taste as many things as I'd have liked! I had kabab korsh and a saffron ice cream with pistacchios, topped up with an... More

This is a beautiful restaurant in the heart of the Souq and everything was excellent. The design and decor are beautiful and the food is outstanding. Service was top notch and every dish we all had was amazing. The mixed grill served at the table is a must. This is a beautiful restaurant with great Persian delights.

I used to live in Iran, so I know what authentic Persian food is supposed to taste like. I ordered the Shirazi salad, fesanjun (my favorite), and rice. This was the best fesanjun I've had for years! The setting makes you feel like you've stepped back in time to a palace in Isfahan. The food was not inexpensive, but if... More

My wife and i have a rather different opinion of this restaurant located in the heart of the souk. The decor is a amazing, full of coloured glass and mirror tiles - and i enjoyed that for a few minutes. There are no windows in the restaurant and i found the effect, and the general hubbub to be anything but... More
