We had a lovely lunch in Persia, portions were big possibly more suited to an evening meal than lunch but obviously excellent value for money - the food was fresh and fragrant and we will definitely go back.
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.
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.
Transport links on Great Western Road
