Kasra Persian Grill – Persian Perfection

The Cyrus Cylinder (the first attempt we know about running a society and a national symbol of Iran) and this restaurant are a couple of great reasons to appreciate Iran. Kasra Persian Grill is yet another cultural treat available in Houston.
Feta, Parsley, Spearmint, Basil and Radishes To Start
Hottest of Bread Greets Each Diner
Tomato Cucumber Salad Refreshes With a Squeeze of Lemon
Cherry Rice With Butter, Roasted Tomatoes and Filet Mignon
Lamb Shank Extraordinaire – Eggplant Sauce
Adam Parsa and his father, Morty Parsa, and mother, Cyndi Parsa have swept the restaurant location of any bad vibes of previous owners. The lunch crowd on a weekday was constant – business and family combined, and happily sated with the luxuries of graceful, peaceful Middle Eastern dining. The service is friendly and solicitous – each customer’s needs are attended quickly and with a smile. The team of waitstaff obviously support one another by removing plates and offering tea and more bread – all making sure that all diners come back. 

When you are one of Houston’s (Allison Cook’s) Top 100 Restaurants (and the only Persian one), you try harder.  Moving up year after year has been a point of pride and accomplishment. After over 20 successful, hard-won years in the business and serving such a wonderful variety of unique dishes, this restaurant deserves a try from you. Iranians savor saffron and Zereshk, a unique tart barberry that is believed to limit your cholesterol intake; the dried barberry flakes are tucked on every table to help you keep your waistline in check throughout the seasons’ eatings.
