We decided to have lunch at the only Iranian restaurant in and around Philly. The appearance from outside was quite unimpressive. From old/faint signage outside, to archaic decor and aged artwork, cutlery, plates and furniture inside. We were politely greeted by friendly and accommodating staff with excellent service. The menu was diverse and appetizing indeed, but their tastes were another... More

Our friendly waiter was helpful with ordering, being new to Persian food. My partner had the lamb and I had a vegetarian dish, of which there were several choices. The rice that they brag about is everything they say it is. Mine was made with orange peel and slivered almonds. My partners' had currants and dates. Wonderful coffee and Baklava... More

For starters, this Sunday afternoon reservation was not acknowledged upon arrival, maybe because the restaurant was half empty. There seemed to be only one server at the start and drinks were delivered very slowly. When a 2nd server appeared she did not speak English and tried to deliver someone else's orders to our table. The Kabob was disappointing also, while... More

The only reason I am not giving this restaurant five stars is some of the staff. There was a number of young Persian girls among the waiting staff. The restaurant was not full and therefore those ladies were not waiting any tables. You would be kind of annoyed when you hear them talk loudly. I hope the next time I... More

I had not been here before but love lamb, so my friends suggested Persian Grill. What a find so close to where I live. the pickled jalapeños were fantastic and the lamb chops, and lamb kebob were wonderful. My friends had the Cornish hen and lamb skewers, and the Persian ice cream with rosewater and saffron were superb. Will definitely... More

Great middle eastern food served by friendly staff. Very attentive to gluten free diet...In fact almost everything is gluten free except the pita bread. Be sure to try the rice with Cornish hen and cherries and ground lamb kabobs.

My family used to go to Persian Grill often, for many years. My young son would get the same dish (P2) every single time. The business changed hands around 2008 and we moved away. We visited for the first time in many years and had a very nice evening: nothing changed! We ordered the Shereen Polo and Albaloo Polo. These... More

Wife and I went for our anniversary after years of putting it off. We both enjoyed the smells that hit you as you walk in the door. My wife ordered the Salmon and said it was the best she ever had. I ordered the Lamb Kebobs that were really good flavored if only slightly on the dry side. That would... More

We have been to the Persian Grill many times. The food is always great. Our favorites are P1-salmon and P3-Cornish hen with red berries, bursting with flavor. Usually tadig is served with the rice dishes. Tadig is crusty rice from the bottom of the rice pot, a real specialty not to be missed! Try the Persian Grill for a Middle... More

I'm not an expert in some cuisines..and Persian food is one of them. Hummus is wallpaper paste imo, so when the 'tired of turkey' group of holiday revelers chose Persian Grill, I went along, believing that I could have a drink and eat when I got back. It's a small place with a parking lot somewhere outside Chestnut Hill, and... More
