During a business meeting for late launch in Parisa restaurant locate in Souq waqif , i just found an amazing and delicious Persian food in a very pleasant ambiance and professional and friendly service. Significantly I recommend this place to food lovers not only for the amazing taste and food presentation but to experience different ambiance.

We visited this place for a dinner. I loved the restaurant more than the food. Its really nice place. Food is Arabian and not recommending for the vegetarians, service and everything is good in here.

Today we were visiting Souk Waqif in a group of 7 with relatives from USA and as we were trying to decide which "ambient" we would like to have for Dinner we stopped by Parisa and asked them to allow us to have a quick look inside and allow our guest to decide where they want to stay or not....

Very pleasant and nicely decorated. The service was perfect! Every person had just the right amount of friendliness and they seemed to appear with perfect timing. I don't know that the food was particularly memorable, but I would go back for the service! Meals are preceded with flat bread, a dish of feta cheese, cucumbers,tomatoes and walnuts, so there is...

- decorations are so perfect - food was extra basic, not tasty, low quality spices, meat was the cheapest kind. To sum it up its below my expectations. - staff are not welcoming. - expensive for bad quality food. I would rather come again to see the decorations only.

We walked past two or three times before deciding to visit, the main attraction being that it was Persian food which was something a little different. The entrance corridor gives the first hint which then opens onto the splendour of the inside. Its like finding a geode, a less than impressive rock containing the spectacular amethyst inside. The food is... More

We were in the old Souq Waqif and fancied some Persian food. It was just too hot to sit outside so we were looking for a comfortable Restaurant to discuss business. We saw the Parisa sign which looked (being nice) in keeping with the Souq buildings. We walked into the entrance corridor and wow, what an entrance; amazing all those... More

If you want to taste Persian restaurant that looks modern, this is the place. The food is the best and the atmosphere was fantastic.

Amazing Food and very different. Also lovely music and decoration. They bring you complementary Iranian bread fresh out of this special oven with cheese and vegetables. Weirdly there was only two other tables even though we went on a friday evening. I don't think many people know this place but it's defenitly worth trying.... If only they had sheesha it... More

one of my favorite places for Iranian food, fancy yet not pretentious. i like to sit outside in the balcony when the weather is nice. Sharq village and spa is not known for good service, but not here. call in advance, cause sometime they close for private events.

Thank aliabdulla77

Parisa, which means "an angel", is the newest Persian cuisine in Doha and invites diners to enjoy an exciting style of contemporary Persian delights at its finest. The sea view restaurant at Sharq Village & Spa overlooking Doha Bay is the perfect backdrop for memorable dining experiences in an elegant, stylish ambience. The interior design with its color scheme purple and grey is complemented by an exclusive décor reflecting the Persian tradition.
