Persian House Restaurant

Ever agreed to have dinner with a group of friends but couldn't decide where to go because everyone wanted something different? I've been in that situation more than once (and perhaps more than 20 times), and so I wish I had known about the Persian House Restaurant sooner. Located here in Portland, the Persian House offers more than what you would expect from a Middle Eastern Restaurant. Aside from having delectable beef and chicken kabobs, many dishes at the Persian House also offer Italian, Greek, French, and Spanish flavors.

In other words, there's bound to be something for everyone! So the next time you're in the mood for Shish Kabob (or Fettuccini, Shrimp and Avocado Salad, Chicken Soltani...), try the Persian House in Portland!
