We were invited by Iranian friends, so they knew what they were doing! They ordered a typical Iranian meal for us, which was delicious. The atmosphere is exotic a little noisy when the musicians play. The main dining room reproduces a typical old palace room...More

The restaurant has a slightly exotic feel with the elaborate entrance and Persian style decor. The menu is varied and should suit most tastes. The service was attentive and prices were reasonable. Worth a visit when in the Souk Waqif.

Went here with friends and were not disappointed. The restaurant is very meticulously decorated with mirrors, colored glasses and different pictures of paintings. The staff are friendly and the food was absolutely delicious. My favorite was the bell pepper stuffed with minced lamb and yogurts....More

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...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....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!...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.
