Restaurant Review: Persia Grill Megamall

10 Jan

A place we’ve been planning to eat at for the longest time is Persia Grill, found along the tunnel in between the two Megamall buildings, on the A side. (Yes, it’s outside the actual mall.) My husband and I were able to go there last week, and here’s what we ordered:

Hummus with Pita Bread (Php100) – Note that wonderful design on the dip. They have three other kinds of dips to go with pita, for the same price. Or you can go with a 4-way platter, for something like Php385, which is good for large family groups.

Beef Shawarma (Php70) – Standard shawarma here. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Beef Tenderloin Business Meal (Php135) – I think this is actually the star of the show. The beef is very tender and perfectly cooked. The rice is good as well. It also comes with a small yogurt dip, but nothing to dip in it. It’s a good thing we also got a couple of extra pita bread (Php15 each).

I also got a side of roast tomato (4 small pieces for Php45) which I didn’t take a photo anymore because it’s really just roast tomato. We ordered a pitcher of red iced tea (Php165), which sounds a little expensive, but it was delicious and tastes very like Hawaiian Punch.

Overall, the food is wonderful. It’s just the kind of Persian cuisine that we have been hunting for, and a lot cheaper compared to places like Arya. There are a lot more expensive items on the menu, but those would probably cater to larger groups. For the usual lunch time meal, the business meals are perfect. The place is not really big; there are probably only around 10 tables and one HUGE couch inside, plus 2 or 3 outside. The service is acceptable. We’re planning to go back to try the other dishes.

  • Summary – Great and relatively inexpensive Persian place, with acceptable service and ambiance. Php470 for a not-so-big meal (probably translates to around P550 for a full meal) for two.
  • Food: 9
  • Service: 7.5
  • Ambiance: 8

    Actually business meals lang talaga yung normally inoorder ko 🙂 I agree that the shawarma is nothing special. I like their dolmeh (stuffed bellpeppers) too. And we usually order roasted tomatoes hahahaha. Adik lang talaga sa kamatis. Their yogurt shakes are ok too. Try their salad one time! My friend loves it. I’m ok with with it pero mas sulit kasi yung business meals.

    Sa Persia Grill, I prefer their baba ganouge over their hummus. 🙂

      Ooooh interesting recommendations! I’ll try those out the next time we go there. Yes, actually I want to try their other dips as well. The hummus was a little dry (since it’s made of chick peas) but still good.

    I’m glad you enjoyed the place because Chris and I were not satisfied with our experience in their SM North branch. We thought the food we ordered were merely thawed and served straight from the microwave oven. 😛

      Was it crowded there? I think the nice thing about the Megamall branch was that it’s almost empty, so the food has the maximum attention, hehe. You might want to give this branch a shot. 🙂
