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

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.

We went to souq waqif for dinner and decided to go to Parisa because we already entered there once just to see the place. That night we decided to eat there and delight our eyes and stomachs. Parisa is the most beautiful place I had dinner in Doha, everything shines there. The service was very good (rare thing for Doha),... More

Interesting interiors!!!! I can't stop taking photos. It creates a truly authentic Persian experience right at the entrance the moment you walk in. Food is amazing esp the salad dishes.

Although I have been many times in the restaurant and I have enjoyed every single time, I went during Ramadan and the manager refused to give the vegeterians in our group anything from the menu and also suggested that rice is enough! He was extremely rude and unhelpful and I hope the owners of the restaurant will reconsider having such... More

Great food, with a lot of fresh fish and sea food, all supervised by a Greek chef. Good mix of local food and cuisine, with mediterranean influences.
