  • Persepolis

    Great Food!

    I never thought I would find a persian restaurant in the city I would happy with, but I was wrong. Persepolis is a great place to dine. I was pleased with the food (I have dined there a couple of times, and each time I am happy with whatever I order). The atmosphere is nice, and the service is fine as well. I would recommend Persepolis to anyone looking to have a nice Persian meal at a reasonable price. Although, not the best Persian restaurant I have ever eated at, it is probably the best middle eastern restaurant in the city.

    Great Food, Ok Service, Unpleasant Atmosphere

    We've been to this restaurant several times. The food is consistently good, if overpriced. My problem is with the person who appears to be the manager or owner of the place. During peak meal times, he hovers to make sure diners clear out quickly. He makes really obvious and tacky eye and hand gestures to servers to clear off tables so that the patrons will move to the next course or leave. We made the mistake of taking some friends there on a Persian holiday and were appalled that he came over to remind us FOUR times that we had to clear the table by a certain time--something of which we were already clearly aware.

    Best restaurant in NYC

    Amazing food, great service and a funny, friendly owner are only some of the reasons I frequent this restaurant at least once a week. The food is unbelievably good and the prices are more than fair. The atmosphere is even more enjoyable since they have recently made some minor renovations. I have been eating Persian food my whole life and have never had anything better than Persepolis. Due to a recent review in the New York Times, they are more crowded than usual so you might want to make a reservation.

    This was my first time eating Persian food and I absolutely loved it.. I have never tasted such flavorful rice. Everything was great.

    The mixed apps are very good, so fresh it's like you made them at home. I had beef ground kabab on rice with blackened tomato, very nice, rice was perfect. I'd have liked a vegetable or something but that was my lack of experience I guess. Very friendly & stylish place. I recommend it.

    Best Persian Restaurant in NYC

    My friends and I went to almost every Persian restaurant in NYC and were not too happy with their food, service, and atmosphere simply because we were comparing it to Persepolis. Over all Persepolis creates an environment that is comfortable, relaxed, and pleasant and service everyone the same with their delicious delicacies/food.

    Ate it and Loved it!

    Coming from two persian parents I grew up eating the best food. Especially, rice and Kabob's. Making persian rice is an abosolute art and this place had it down to perfection, along with the meat. My father agreed and he doesn't like any persian food but his own mothers! did not try any of the stews, but I will certainly go back!
