Treat someone special for Fathers Day with The Persian Room’s set menu: three courses for $40 per person!
It’s a testament to the undoubted longevity of The Persian Room that they’ve shifted to even more resplendent harbourside quarters at Sydney’s Jones Bay, along the wharves off Pirrama Road at the northern tip of Pyrmont. The Persian Room has a reputation built from quality, sourcing spices from Iran, blending them on site and, along with only the freshest produce, incorporating them into dishes that draw on the 5000 year-old traditions of Persian cuisine. The Persian Room, with the introduction of their new restaurant, are opening a new chapter, and making history all over again.
The Persian Room are as comfortable trekking across the food-map of one of the world’s oldest cuisines as they are slipping effortlessly from princely breakfasts and lunches to rather royal Sydney harbourside dining come evening, complete with candlelit tables and an al fresco terrace. Really, how many restaurants can boast their own berth for guests’ yachts and even promise a luxury yacht of their own for VIPs in the near future? Though it is to be found at a gorgeous spot along Pyrmont’s northernmost wharf off Pirrama Road, location is far from everything at The Persian Room. This restaurant is all about the rich culinary heritage of what we now call Iran.
Ancient Persian esotericism had a lot of room for food; food in terms of the artistic, the philosophical, the medicinal. Well, the bottom line for most diners is that Persian food is celebrated for its deliciousness, but it’s heartening to find a Sydney restaurant that is unafraid to discourse on the heritage behind its menu – this means you’re in for something more authentic than your usual. At the very least, you can expect Pyrmont’s The Persian Room’s kitchen off Pirrama Road to produce healthful, artful dishes that represent the best of Iran’s diverse regional cuisines. Slow-cooked aubergine with garlic and walnuts (kashkebademjan) to start, or the yoghurt-based most o khiar, a raita-like dish fragranced with sun-dried mint and rose petals. Traditional Persian kebabs will satisfy, well, the traditionalists, but we recommend the imperial treat of The Persian Room’s generous platters, either the Royal or the Feast For The Kings, giving you the chance to be as adventurous as The Persian Room’s chefs are.
The food I had at the Persian Room is the best Persian food I have ever had! I'm half Persian and it beats any food I've have from the mother country. World class! At the host Mariam is just so lovely and helpful with recommendations. The Fessenjoon is to die for and the Traditional Ice Cream is totally delicious! Can't wait to go back and try more things on the menu!
Our experience at the Persian Room was just delightful. Not only did it introduce us to the wonderful world of Persian Food, we had the pleasure of the Persian Room's owner Maryam looking after us on the night and her energy and passion added to our wonderful night. We will be going back next tine we are in Sydney. Karen and Stella and the girls from Kildonan
Fantastic dinner, great service, we love the person room! We tried several new dishes which were recommended by the owner, excellent choices. We ordered too much so enjoyed leftovers two nights later!
