“Not so good food - Horrible service”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

We are lovers for more than 20 years of Persian food.

Coming back to Paris, we felt like eating in a good Persian restaurant. La Cheminée seemed to enjoy good reviews on TA and elsewhere on the Net.

Upon arrival we were greeted by a very moody and unfriendly waiter. His moods and poor service did not improve during our dinner, unfortunately.

We ordered typical Persian dishes: grilled meat with rice.

Rice cooking is something holly in Iran. Well, here the rice was not great at all.

The meat was also not very good, even on the bland side.

All in all the food was not good at all; what a pity for a Persian restaurant.

We will never go there again. And the service was simply horrible.

Unfortunately, this restaurant does not have the good food that Cheminée Royale used to have twenty years ago. The name is close and the location is very close but the food is miles away. Sad.

“Nice Memories......for My Wife”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Just returning from the restaurant.
It brought vivid memories for my wife from her childhood in Iran.
It brought me memories from my mother-in-law cooking.
If you cherish Persian food, this is the place to go!

One of the best Persian food in Paris, small cosy place and I assume that the restaurant owner serve herself.
