£7.50 for 2 courses on lunch menu
Alison Robertson - 24/10/2014
The food and service in Persia is first-class and excellent value for money. I went with 3 friends who had not eaten there before and all 3 were very impressed with both their starters, the giant naan bread and their main courses.
'Another great visit to Persia'
sandie mackay - 07/09/2014
I've been here a few times and it doesn't disappoint. I met 2 friends for lunch who had never been and we all really enjoyed the food, service and of course they will both now return.
They have a very good selection on the special lunch menu and it includes a 175ml of wine so it's great value for money. The portions are big: none of us could finish our main courses and certainly no room for a pudding.
Authentic Middle Eastern Glasgow West End
Persia is a Middle Eastern restaurant 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.
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.
