A taste of Iran,

I am new to Persian foods and the food at the Persian house is amazing. I never used to like eggplant but Nazkhatun appetizer is downright delicious. I have tried the Lamb Shank and it is fall off the bone goodness. I have been back and had the Salmon Fessenjan is a perfectly cooked salmon fillet with a pomegranate sauce that is a wonderful compliment to the fish. The saffron rice is some of the best rice I have ... view more

Great appetizers, food and service

I've eaten Persian food in LA, Seattle and Portland. I'm happy I live here because the Persian House is my favorite Mediterranean restaurant. The naz khatun (sp) and hummus are excellent. I am not an eggplant fan, but would eat it here any time. As for people who say the food is bland, I'm surprised. The ghormeh sabzi (herbal stew) and lentil soup is delicious. Persian food (and other Mediterranean food) may no... view more

Try their naz khatun!!!

I am not usually excited about Mediterranean food, but the Persian House is a wonderful treat with its richly flavorful dishes. Never has eggplant been so delicious as in their naz khatun – my pita bread wipes the plate clean every time. The lentil soup is also the best in town. What a treat to have such a unique family-run restaurant, where I can experience flavors and culture from Iran right here in downtown Portla... view more

Good food but small portions

I had been here once a year ago and remembered the food being great, which it mostly is, having sampled several dishes last night with friends. However, the portions were painfully small on the 4 seasons appetizer, which consists of baba ganouj, hummus, dolmas, and taboulleh. Our host and waitress were both very attentive and helpful recommending items on the menu. Everything was very tasty, except I agree with mo... view more

Nargesi is good... other items a little bland

I have to say after reading some of the reviews I am pretty shocked that people do not like the persian house. It was the first place I ever tried mediterranean food and my first time was amazing! Granted, each time I have been back I have ordered the same dish (nargesi), which is wonderful, so I really can't say much about there food as a whole. The pomegranet chicken that my roommate ordered was also delicious, but... view more

My favorite restaurant in Portland

The menu and staff (family:-) are wondeful. The leg of lamb is out of this world fantastic. Yummy Persian tea too. I'm gluten, potato and soy intolerant and can choose from many items on the menu. The staff is very helpful making sure I order per my dietary restrictions. Oh and the sour cherry chicken, pomegranate sauce, and more. I hope to be going back soon.

Terrible, expensive, watered down, doesn't taste like Persian food

Whoever thinks this place serves good Persian food must have never eaten out in their life or has never had good Persian food. People in Portland are fooled by this place! This isn't Persian food. Persian food isn't watered down, made of tasteless tomato sauces! I went there for their lunch buffet and the only meat they had was chicken thighs with skin and lamb meatballs that tasted like Chef Boyardee. I came fr... view more

Dr. recommended

We just moved to portland a year ago! This restaurant was recommended to us by several of our friends. We are now addicted to their delicious food and have become regulars. In my opinion you rarely find a restaurant that has it all, fresh quality food, outstanding service, and warm ambiance. There's a reason they have been around so long. Because my wife and I are in the health field it is very important to us the k... view more

The worst service I've ever had, ANYWHERE

This was my first time having Persian food and I anticipated something tasty, because the door had so many Willamette Weekly and Oregonian awards. However, what I got was the biggest let down ever.\r The service was INCREDIBLY slow, as in my friend and I received water refills once ever 20 minutes and had to wait an hour for microwaved saffron rice and some chicken with sauce. I would have been more understanding, h... view more
