An escape to Iran within Dubai
For someone wanting to enjoy the ultimate Iranian eat-out experience within Dubai, Pars is undoubtedly the place to be.
With numerous branches spread across the emirate, Pars offers its customers a traditional Iranian dining experience with a unique blend of top quality food, unrivalled hospitality and a calm, peaceful environment. The interior of the restaurant has been designed such that it reflects the Iranian culture, inevitably transporting the diners into Iran without travelling the miles. The walls are adorned with beautiful paintings of Persian Princesses, and Iranian carpets and traditional showpieces placed in every corner add to the overall cultural setting.
The restaurant consists of 2 dining areas, one of which is the main hall where regular seating is available, while the other offers private enclosures for families who wish to enjoy their privacy. For customers dining in the main hall, the restaurant staff is available to them at their service within no time at all, whereas private enclosures are equipped with bells to beckon the waiters as and when required.
The waiting time at Pars is minimal, with customers being seated within minutes of their arrival. Once seated, they are welcomed with traditional appetisers, comprising of salted cottage cheese on a bed of fresh mint leaves, sufficient to tantalise one's taste buds and prepare them for their grand indulgence. Of the main menu, our favourite is the mixed grill platter comprising of a variety of popular Iranian specialties including lamb, beef and chicken kebabs, in addition to fish and shrimps. These are served on a large naan accompanied with assorted flavoured rice on either side.
The main course is served on a grand silver platter, and the feast is no less than that of the Persian kings and queens. The servings are large and generous. A meal for two is often enough for three adults to comfortably eat in, with an average cost of about Dhs 80 per head.
All in all, a dining experience at Pars restaurant is the perfect way to indulge in a feast of Persia at affordable prices.
