Following reviews we decided to try Paradise never again will we visit this restaurant. There are many reviews stating large portion size but the presentation was dreadful almost worthy of a greasy spoon everything just thrown onto a plate. The ingredients were poor quality and the lamb I had was overcooked and served with the cheapest of salad ingredients and... More

We are so happy we came across this restaurant, we didn't expect much as it looked just like a regular west end restaurant but when we entered we discovered authentic Persian atmosphere. The food was great, service perfect and the restaurant is nicely decorated with old Persian furnitures and art. The portions are massive you can hardly finish your plate... More

Would quite happily go back to this Persian restaurant. The food is very tasty, the middle eastern décor interesting, the service great, and the prices reasonable. This place doesn't have a drinks licence; the doogh- a carbonated, salty yoghurt drink- might be a bit of an acquired taste, but the Persian tea is well worth a try.

I first tasted Persian food in the Middle East. So when an Iranian friend suggested I try this restaurant, I wanted to see if I could get the same lamb in Glasgow. I was not disappointed. The lamb fillet with the minced lamb kebab with saffron rice is incredible. The portion is huge and the price is very reasonable.

This place does the most amazing Persian food which tastes like it does back in Iran. The mehzi starter is amazing and really tasty. Gives you a try of everything. Every time I usually get koobedhi which is incredibly tasty. I have tried other dishes though and they are all great. We go here often for Iranian new year and... More

We had lunch here on a Saturday, I did book but the place was quiet and apart from us there was only one other table occupied. Service is friendly and efficient.The decor reminded of some restaurants I have visited in Iran which added to the authenticity and there is a pleasing water feature in the corner. The menu is extensive... More

The food here is exceptional and totally traditional Persian food. The mehzi to start with is a must if you are in a group! The vine leaves are unreal! I would go for koobedhi for your main! Lovely!
