Persian Paradise offers a feast reminiscent of a ‘Darvish’ fairy tale.
Genuine antiques, old Persian copper lamps, contains and warm wood columns create reflection of Iran’s romanticism when it was know as Persia.
Persian Paradise restaurant, in keeping with tradition, is hand-painted in rich red-maroon turquoise blue and sun gold. Greeted by an impressive waiting room, guests enter the main dining area of the restaurant, filled with the Iranian antiques and rugs and carpets.

Visit Date : Sunday 5th February 2017

I have recently started to spend more time in the West End of Glasgow, and this weekend I met my girlfriend and we decided to go for a walk. This was a very nice day, and I got to look about here for potential places to visit and add to my ever growing list.

We came across this restaurant and started to look at the menu.

I have never had any Persian food before, or really heard much about it from my circle of friends.

Main Course :

Kebab Koubideh £9.50
“Two skewers of minced Lamb”

I don’t normally order Lamb, but I wanted to try it here. Normally I would play safe and order chicken but tonight I opted for the Lamb.

This dish comes with either rice or fries, and to play safe I opted for the Fries tonight just in case the Lamb wasn’t that good.


Presentation wise it was just ok, I am sure it could have been put out a little nicer.

Taste wise the Lamb was very good, it was nice and soft and melted in my mouth. It wasn’t the strongest of flavours, it just had enough to be nice. The table did have a few sauces, which did help boost the flavour.

Overall :

I did want to order a chocolate cake after my main meal, but most of the items that day were finished. The remaining items that were still available I couldn’t have, as they contained nuts which I can’t do.

Overall my first experience of a Persian restaurant was good, the food was nice and also the value for money was perfect.
