'Different kind of meal'
sandra silverdale - 10/08/2014
Went with two guests from out of town one if whom does not eat meat. The menu choices were varied and we all enjoyed tasting Persian specialities. Service was excellent and friendly.
Authentic Middle Eastern Glasgow West End
Persia is a Middle Eastern restaurant, shisha bar and cafe on Glasgow’s Great Western Road. Large windows which give it an airy, spacious feel and also allow diners to watch the outside street life. It has a large mocktail bar and several varieties of flavoured tobacco for the shisha pipes
Mezze, kebabs and stews
Persia has a good selection of mezze or starters. From familiar houmous and falafels to aubergine dips and cucumber salads via fatoush and stuffed peppers, you could make a very good meal from the starters alone. However, it would be foolish to miss out on the grilled lamb and chicken dishes which are cooked over charcoal.
Persia also has some traditional stews such as the fessenjan – finely chopped walnuts and chicken in a Persian pomegranate sauce. Also popular are the slow-cooked lamb shanks in a cinnamon sauce. Fish options include a spiced prawn dish and the fried haddock which is marinated in the house secret sauce. Accompany it with a fruit daiquiri and perhaps a drawn-out chat over a mint shisha.
Transport links on Great Western Road
Persia restaurant is towards the Byres Road end of the Great Western Road in Glasgow. As well as some roadside parking, there are a large number of major bus routes running along the Great Western Road. Kelvinbridge subway station is a little over a five minute walk.
