Except for the pita bread, everything is gluten-free. The owner very kindly brought me gluten-free crackers with my lentil soup.
Great paella and aware of contamination problems.
Great atmosphere, attentive service, excellent meal.
The Persian House is one of Portland's best kept secret. And here's why...
Atmosphere 5/5: Newly remodeled... Thank God! The restaurant has a nice and classy atmosphere. This is the perfect spot to bring your date or lover to enjoy some fantastic Mediterranean cuisine. Food 5/5: The food is very nicely presented to you and the great thing about this place is that you can taste the freshness of the product. Also, 95% of their menu is gluten-free! The Kababs are the most traditional dish on the menu but the most interesting dish is the Fessenjan. Fessenjan is a pomegranate and crushed walnuts sauce accompanied with a marinated breast of chicken or a salmon. For appetizer, we tried the Hummus and the Nazkhatun which were exquisite. Service 4/5: Service can be slow sometimes, I agree but don't go there if you expect to seat, eat and pay in 30 minutes. Not gonna happen! If the restaurant is busy, wait time can be a negative factor but just order an appetizer and you should be fine until the main course arrives.
Definitely a place to go to when you want to enjoy a nice and romantic dinner. Cons: You might have to wait a little but it's worth every seconds... I promise!
