You may not have tasted Iranian food quite like the one served at The Persian Restaurant at MacGregor Terrace in Bardon. For Middle Eastern cuisine that has set the bar in the area for nearly a decade, The Persian Restaurant is a favourite of locals but also gets frequent visitors from outside Brisbane.  

Diners come back to this busy establishment for its rich, authentic Iranian food flavours and aroma. Regulars return for a filling serving of kababs and grilled eggplant, or a banquet of Persian or Middle Eastern platters with dolmeh, kashk-e-bademjan, hummus, falafel, and a choice of gluten-free bread.



The menu at The Persian Restaurant has a varied selection of appetizers, salads, and the main course like lamb or chicken paired with Basmati rice. Dessert choices are also a delight and the Iranian Baklava with rose water syrup comes highly recommended.

The ambience at The Persian Restaurant is also a celebration of colourful Iranian culture, where walls are filled murals that depict its history.

Persia was home to one of the earliest cultures in the world and the preparation of Persian food has been developed and passed on from generation to generation. Dining at this place can be a pretty special experience.

“Went for lunch with a friend for her birthday. Food is delicious, love the lamb shank, so tender and juicy. Love the dips with the soft pillowy flat bread. And the chicken cooked with pomegranate, it is so unique and tasty. Very lovely service. Highly recommended”

“Occupying a large space in the old Bardon Shopping Centre on Busy McGregor Terrace, this multi-purpose space provides a very authentic experience with friendly staff, good food and… is BYO. Hurrah! Although influenced by the country’s Arab Muslim neighbours, Iranian food also owes much to its Indo-European origins. Herbs spices fruit and nuts feature to flavour proteins and rice giving a delightfully different experience at a low price. Huge servings! We will be back tomorrow.”

“We are from Sydney and passed by The Persian Restaurant a couple of years ago and liked the look of the place and the menu, so decided on a future visit to Brisbane, we’d check it out. We finally got to visit the restaurant around a week ago as we were back in Brisbane. We weren’t disappointed as the food was very good. The meat was cooked really well and everything was really tasty.”
