DETAILS

Veteran restaurateur Nasser Nikkhahmanesh's establishment underwent a major upgrade after moving to North Scottsdale Road in 2001. What was a cramped Middle Eastern café named Wine & Kebab became a luxurious, two-story banquet hall now named Persian Room. Heavy, blue velvet drapes, glass chandeliers and a grand, purple-carpeted staircase greet guests. Even more impressive is the Iranian eatery's knack for pleasing all palates - from diners with specific dietary needs (vegetarians and celiac sufferers included) to those who are just plain picky. With the kabob as the staple offering, the Americanized Middle Eastern fare remains familiar, only occasionally dabbling in more exotic dishes such as gheimeh (beef and split pea stew) or zereshk polo (saffron rice with berries and seasoned chicken). Save room for the excellent baklava for dessert.



Kids' menu. Full bar. Serving lunch and dinner daily.

"Ingredients are upper-class (filet mignon, Cornish game hen, mahi-mahi). Dishes are familiar to everyone, focusing on kebabs, with just a few daring offerings like gheimeh (stew) or adas polo (basmati rice tossed with raisins, lentils, dates and saffron). "
