From the hanging gardens of Babylon to Ferdows Garden of Brisbane, Persian cuisine has a long a tapestried history, known for millennia for its deep flavours and use of fruit and nuts. The highlight for many Taringa locals who have made Ferdows’ Moggill Road restaurant their own over the years has to be the selection of charcoal-cooked kebabs that are without a doubt fit for royalty, but there’s much more besides on this Persian restaurant’s extensive menu, all with proper pedigree.
Nice authentic Persian food with friendly prompt service at a reasonable price. The hot pot was a highlight on a Sunday, variety of desserts to finish the meal.
Great evening , interesting food, superb staff, a very good location from our point of view. This restaurant is not well known, and it should be! We'll be back!
Lovely little local came recommended. We took a teenager for his birthday and the gorgeous belly dancer made a fuss of him. Another one of our youngsters commented it was the best lamb shank he'd ever eaten!
Ferdows Garden is open from Tuesday to Sunday for lunch and dinner. Book in for lunch at the restaurant’s Moggill Road premises in the Brisbane suburb of Taringa and go light with a traditional Persian salad like the fasl or the shirazi before turning to a main menu that offers mixes ancient Persian and modern Iranian cuisine. Classics like koobideh are kebabs made from minced lamb served on a bed of saffron rice with grilled tomato and peppers.
Joojeh are lemon and onion-marinated chicken thigh pieces. Barg is a fillet of beef marinated for twelve hours in saffron and onion that Brisbane’s carnivores will love to get their teeth into – it doesn’t take much – this dish is as tender as the slow-cooked lamb shank also on the cards. Taringa’s vegetarians love to reserve a table at Ferdows Garden and chow down on the vegetarian plate featuring falafel, dolmades, kashk bademjan and potato salad with a side of Turkish bread.
