Unless business associates would have recommended Persis the thought of dinner was not on our minds. In a nondescript strip mall on a busy street. Persis is simple, casual and clean. The food is solid all the way around. From the crispy Okra, Chili Chicken...(real good), Chicken Chettinadu, Paneer Tikka (very well prepared), Egg Biryani, Lamb Chops (ok) and Daal Makhni. The Garlic Naan was perfect. Prices are super reasonable. We ordered all the food medium and it was perfect. The area of improvement is the service. Seems to be family owned and operated, which is great, however a bit of multi-tasking going on. Good food, clean, simple will be back.More

Food is ok here. Because it's a mix of veg and nonveg restaurant, they should be more careful for serving the food. Noticed an insect fly in the food which we saw the server and he just said sorry and left. Not a good approach....Didn't like it.More

What a wonderful restaurant. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was very inviting. Awesome place to eat, we ordered Chicken Curry and Goat Vindaloo served with white steamed Rice, both were awesome. The Garlic Naan was crispy and delicious and I’d definitely recommend it....Very nice food.More

I had lunch at Persis this weekend. We were just visiting Edison and found this restaurant online. It is a small cozy place with decent ambience and the food was really good. We ordered butter naan, paneer butter masala, veg and chicken biryani. All were...delicious. Will be back if visiting Edison in future.!More

Ordered a chicken and a mutton Biryani. I liked them. Service was slightly slow and sometimes needed to call to get attention. Not a fine dining, but nice and cozy.

Have been here three times before. Every time the waiting time is at least half hour. We loved the biryani here so despite knowing this, we visited this place again. Three chicken biryani, one malai kofta and a roti +naan. As expected, malai kofta and...roti came in after 20 minutes or so. We waited patiently for biryani till half hour. When we asked the guy (probably owner) at the counter to check with our order, he went into the kitchen and sent another guy out. This guy, who took our order, said it would take 15 minutes more as they were making fresh bonelss biryani. He was speechless when I asked him that why didn't he tell us while we ordered. Yet, we said ok and waited. After 15 minutes, we were served a platter of samosa and told that biryani would be ready in 10 minutes. Finally after 10 minutes (almost an hour) we got biryanis. They mixed chicken 65 in it and served as chicken biryani. Not a single chicken piece that you would want to see in biryani. All fried chicken 65 that was undercooked. There were 3 ladies who came and sat next to us and probably wanted biryani. The same server told them that only veg biryani was available. The ladies left. So obviously he lied to us when he said fresh biryani was being made. We couldn't finish 3 orders of rice with chicken 65 so had to pack the leftover. We didn't complain coz we don't want compensation or discount for our next visit. Will never ever set foot here again.More

This place is known for its Biryani. The other dishes are good, but if you are in the mood to have some delicious authentic Biryani, then do order from here A must must have - Mutton Biryani
