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...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...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...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.

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...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...More

Ask for it. There is usually some Tahdig if you go at the right time (i.e. when they are reaching to the bottom of "Dig" to be able to extract Tahdig!)

I believe the only way to know for sure would be to call them. When we ate there, it was lunchtime and I did not get the impression we were restricted in selections. The menu for lunch seemed long and varied as well. I... More
