Nice place. Great service and food. Ask for the lamb chops. Drinks are a bit overpriced, but thats in all Doha.

Yikes & overpriced. The ambiance is dated. The cold appetizers were ok; the hot appetizers were too oily. The biggest fail was the main course. We ordered Kabab (ground lamb and beef filet - Koobideh & Soltani). The meat was flavorless. The rice was old and dry (reheated). The usual condiments were either badly executed (grilled tomato) or missing (egg... More

Husband and I are avid eaters, seekers for good quality eats across food joint (cheap to expensive), however, Doha has been surprising us with expensive pricing for low quality foods. This isn't the best persian restuarant you'll eat in, but it's also not the worst. Service is great, they check on you every once in a while to make sure... More

I had never tried Persian food before, but if it is like my experience at Parisa, I love it! I will probably return to this place to try more dishes, as I went alone and could not taste as many things as I'd have liked! I had kabab korsh and a saffron ice cream with pistacchios, topped up with an... More

This is a beautiful restaurant in the heart of the Souq and everything was excellent. The design and decor are beautiful and the food is outstanding. Service was top notch and every dish we all had was amazing. The mixed grill served at the table is a must. This is a beautiful restaurant with great Persian delights.

I used to live in Iran, so I know what authentic Persian food is supposed to taste like. I ordered the Shirazi salad, fesanjun (my favorite), and rice. This was the best fesanjun I've had for years! The setting makes you feel like you've stepped back in time to a palace in Isfahan. The food was not inexpensive, but if... More

My wife and i have a rather different opinion of this restaurant located in the heart of the souk. The decor is a amazing, full of coloured glass and mirror tiles - and i enjoyed that for a few minutes. There are no windows in the restaurant and i found the effect, and the general hubbub to be anything but... More

My review today is for a very nice restaurant in #sharqvillage by @ritzcarlton: #parisa.. a very nice atmosphere, with an amazing view and outdoor area. Great service, very yummy food, and refreshing desert! But the price! 1 hot appetizer + 1 salad + 2 ayran drink + main course for 2 + dessert for 2, total around 650 QAR #parsianfood... More

Within the famous Souq Waqif, Doha this restaurant is a must visit serving outstanding 'Persian Cuisine' within a wonderfully decorated restaurant which was a complete surprise and delight. The food didn't disappoint and the service and attention my family and I received was excellent

We thought this was a good place to try Persian food given that Iran is across the water. We chose to sit outdoors to watch the passing parade on the street but we got kind of forgotten as the night progressed as most people dined indoors. We decided to run with the classics and ordered ghormeh sabzi and the fesajun.... More

Parisa, which means "an angel", is the newest Persian cuisine in Doha and invites diners to enjoy an exciting style of contemporary Persian delights at its finest. The sea view restaurant at Sharq Village & Spa overlooking Doha Bay is the perfect backdrop for memorable dining experiences in an elegant, stylish ambience. The interior design with its color scheme purple and grey is complemented by an exclusive décor reflecting the Persian tradition.
