Amir Persian Restaurant

Traditional Persian Cuisine. We love our customers, so feel free to visit during normal business hours.

From the earliest times, Persians have been known for their hospitality, whether that of the tribesman offering rest and refreshment to a weary traveler, or that of the urbane city dweller offering a sumptuous repast to his guests.

Tradition requires that guests or visitors be served only the finest food available, and always in the most bountiful manner possible. Accounts of early travelers to Iran indicate that the dishes served have not changed appreciably over the centuries.

Persia’s geography, history, and cultural influences have shaped the diversity of ingredients and the methods of cooking in one of the world’s oldest and most sophisticated cultures. Persia – or Iran – has been subjected to repeated invasions, but it has maintained its culture, language, and identity throughout the centuries. The vast size of the country encompasses a wide array of local dialects, lifestyles, regional traditions, and customs, not to mention an extraordinary variety of landscapes and climates.

    I gave 5 stars because of their effort, not their service or food.

    The restaurant has apparently changed hands recently, and the new owners are settling in. So I gave them 5 Stars for encouragement but will change upon future visits if no improvements.

    The place is small (1 room) but clean and nicely presented. The greeting was immediate and with the usual, and well known, Iranian hospitality.

    The gentleman taking our order and another gentleman cooking (who I assume was Amir) disappeared out of sight and came to the dining room from time to time. So there was no one around most of the time. There was construction banging from another room around the hallway which was by no means professional. (I thought maybe they were beating the meat for kabob Barg)

    The food was not particularly special, but average. Their Iranian ice cream was “almost” tasty, but not quite there yet. Although it was exactly as pictured in their menu. Their menu was incomplete and I had to ask for what I saw, before visiting through Google, which I presume was published by previous owners.

    They seem to survive on word of mouth, and primarily visited by Iranians, since they are virtually invisible from the road, facing a dirty alley. And their entrance is far from tidy.

    I wish them all the luck, but it will be difficult as they lack 3 essential criteria for success, Location Location Location.
