I was recently told that if your surname is Munro you get 50% discount here, so I looked into this place to see what it was like.

Today I thought I would go and visit and see what its like.

On entering it’s a very modern looking pub, very spacious and very clean looking.

We looked for a table and sat.

Where we seated was in the door to the left, a little area where you could look out at the street. The table behind us has a young guy playing his Guitar and singing, and a young girl singing a long with him so we had our very own entertainment.

The Food :

IMG_7535

OH MY GOD!!!!!! when this arrived it was MASSIVE.

Yes I tried to take a bite but even though I do have a big mouth, I was unsuccessful so I resorted to taking one burger out and eating it that way.

The burger was nice and had a nice flavour, the black pudding adding the extra flavour it needed. For me it could have had more cheese on it, as it was a little dry yes I could have added sauce for me trying anything the first time its about how it is served to me.

Was it the best burger I have had? no…but it was an OK burger and I would have it again. Though in saying that I would have to not eat for the whole day, as I did leave a little which is very unusual for me as I was very full so next time I will make sure I have lots of space to finish it.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 3.5
Presentation : 4.5

Overall :

I did mention that I was a Munro, and showed proof which gave me 50% discount of my food. The waiter was kind enough to let me know that this is normally done with bookings, but he was OK to do it for me today.

Overall it was a nice time, service and food was good. My only two issues were one that I didn’t manage to finish my burger, and two that there could have been more cheese on the burger…..but that’s a personal thing.

I would like to go back and try a few more dishes.

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.
