Great place with tasty food. I always prefer to support local and this is a great way to do it.

For a Lebanese restaurant, I really enjoyed it better than a regular Shawarma. But the service could be worked on to have more attention to the customers when needed.

We go to Persis Grill on a regular basis and it has become our go to restaurant in Orléans. The staff is friendly and the food is consistently very good. The restaurant is very clean and very well decorated. I highly recommend this hidden gem in a shopping mall. It is worth the travel time from another area of town. Most of the food is also gluten free which is a bonus for our daughter and me.

Good food, but we were served by the rudest waiter I have ever encountered. We suggested the restaurants to friends of ours, so we gave it a try last night. When we arrived, we asked for a litre of red wine which we savoured with their delicious bread and soup. Prior to ordering our main dishes, approximately 50 minutes later we ordered another litre of wine. We were refused by the waiter. He indicated he could offer a half litre???? Really??? This restaurant allows people to bring their own wine and charge a corking fee of $10. We saw other groups of four come in with three bottles and yet that is acceptable?? When we asked for further explanation the waiter pointed to Ontario liquor laws!! Seriously?? Guess the waiter didn’t appreciate our questioning because we never asked if our meals were satisfactory or if we were interested in coffee or dessert. Shame on the waiter and shame on management for keeping someone who clearly lacks the etiquette to wait on tables! If you clearly want to abide by Ontario liquor laws and preventing your clients from getting intoxicated then apply it for all clients!! Never going back to this restaurant and will never recommend it to friends, family, etc..

I really liked this place . It's a bit on the pricey side but the food is really good . I like the free humus and pita bread they bring out right away. Food is very on point and tasty .

Delicious! A hidden gem in Orleans for sure! Good value with great menu options. My chicken skewer was very moist, rice was so flavourful, and salad was nice and fresh. Just about everything here is gluten free! I definitely recommend.

Nice restaurant, pleasant atmosphere, nicely decorated. Food is delicious and they serve as an entrée a yummy soup. Plenty of choice and very tasty.

This is a very clean, well decorated restaurant. The service is outstanding. The best I have had in a long time. When you go in you will be promptly seated. They bring you water and menus and return shortly with soup and bread. They check back for your order and once your order is placed it come out in relatively quick fashion.

I ordered from here through SkipTheDishes and was thoroughly disappointed. I’m minutes away from the restaurant and my order was cold and worse, incomplete. The meat dish was tasty but the portion was small. The calamari was so greasy I could pour the oil out into a cup. An unbelievable let down given the high price for a meal that I then had to supplement with another order from elsewhere. My first and last experience with this sort of cuisine.

Repas servi rapidement et chaud. Service très convivial. Un pain chaud maison délicieux a été servi à titre d’entrée. Bon rapport qualité-prix. J’y retournerai.

Suzanne Thibault

Every meal comes with soup AND salad. Absolutely delicious

Great food. Great service. Only complaint is the lack of variety in the drinks. But even with that, they tried to be accommodating.

Great atmosphere and amazing food at a reasonable price.

This was a nice restaurant for a date night on a Friday evening. The place was quiet when we arrived at around 6:30pm but picked up over the next hour and was quite busy. We were poured a bowl of soup upon arrival and served a warm flatbread. I was excited for the bread because I'd read rave reviews, but I found it a bit ho hum. The soup was also not very good - I think it was potato, I found it bland. We brought our own wine and paid a $10 corkage fee. I don't know of many restaurants that offer this service anymore, but I quite liked it. We ordered a warm appetizer to start -- the MIRZAGHASEMI which, as the menu says is a medley of BBQ eggplant, eggs, garlic and spices, that we spread on the bread. At first there was a strong smokey flavour (charred eggplant, I assume), but you got used to it. Appetizer was ok. The main meal was the good part: We shared a kabob platter with two skewers of koobideh (ground beef) and added a beef tenderloin skewer. Both types were very good and flavourful. We upgraded our rice with "Shirin polo: Cranberries, carrots, walnuts, pistachio, pecans and orange peel mixed with saffron and basmati rice" and it was quite tasty; I would do this again. The side salad was also good, though fairly basic. All together, this was more than enough food for the two of us. I will go back to Persis again!

Really fresh food, great service! Has been great to our family for multiple outings. The meat is well cooked and incredibly tender. Flavours were fantastic and is a nice local restaurant worth supporting

I think this was one of the first restaurants I tried in orleans. Honestly did not expect anything spectacular considering the location, but I was pleasantly surprised. I am not a persian food expert, but loved everything we tried. They have various options of beef, chicken and lamb. Service was really good and polite. The waiter offered some good advice on what to try. The interior is decent but pretty standard. You don't get the impression like you're in an expesive restaurant. Since I mentioned "expensive", the prices are pretty decent. I remember a side of ground beef kabob was really cheap. I liked their rice as well. Not the best I've tried but quite decent. They also offer delivery if you don't feel like driving all the way.

After a few recommendations I stopped in for dinner with a friend on a whim. We went into the restaurant to eat and they have a bring your own wine with a $10 corking fee (we didn't do this but several other tables in the restaurant did). When we sat down a waitress brought us water and a bottle of water for the table, I always love when restaurants do this so you don't have to bug them for more. Our waiter came up to the table with two broccoli soups, apparently that is the restaurants tradition. After our meal we were told that if you eat in the restaurant you get soup ( rotates between broccoli, carrot or mushroom) and if you are in orleans delivery is free, or you get 5% off when you pick up (delivery/pick up don't get the free soup). I thought this was an interesting offer and love that I can get free delivery. My friend and I ordered two different chicken kabob plates, I got the Barg. The only difference is the marinade - I wish the menu clearly stated what the marinade was as the restaurant has a lot of gluten and dairy free options but you don't realize what is what just by looking at the menu. The chicken was delicious! So perfectly cooked that it was still very juicy and flavorful. The rice was also perfectly cooked, very light and fluffy and they have 3 different rice add on options, I didn't opt in but I think I would try next time. The house salad was delicious. The bread that came was an iranian bread and yummy, almost like a foccaccia bread/pita bread. We decided to split a baklava for dessert and they were two perfect 1" by 1" squares. I am used to a crispier/more honey filled baklava but this one was very flavorful and both my friend and I agreed it was delicious. I definitely recommend this restaurant - the food was delicious and very well cooked. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the food and it is so nice to have a healthier option when eating out. Both my friend and I will definitely be back!

Yesterday was my first experience at this establishment and it definitely will not be the last. I was pleasantly surprised upon arrival at the clean, contemporary and stylish decor of the restaurant. The background music was excellent appropriate and yet not overpowering at other places. We arrived earlier than most clientele without reservations and had our pick of seating. The wait staff were very attentive. First thing I noticed was that the restaurant is a Bring Your Own Wine - now that is a policy I can really live with. The server helped us with our choices and boy was it good. She brought us each a tasty bowl of Mushroom soup along with a board of fresh from the oven Persian flat breads. This was offered to all clients on arrival. We had an eggplant appetizer along with a meal for two. The meal came with a choice of salad each and a large plate of three kebob ( two beef, one half chicken, half tenderloin - superb. So much food. Nothing to complain about. We will be back.

My family and I came in on a Saturday night, they were pretty full, but the went out of the way to accomodate our family of 4. Waiter came with soup and bread, which was quite good, we all ordered an appetizer, I ordered the olives which were good, but lots, maybe too much, may have been better mixed with a platter of pickled vegetables for some variety, but my daughters calamari was excellent, and my husbands yogurt and cucumber dish was very tasty, my son got the smoked eg

Pretty good kabobs but the side dishes is average and could really use some oomph. Basmati rice was slightly overlooked, salad was a bit takeoutish. I ordered the sirloin beef kabob. The meat was delicious and service was good.

This new spot opened up right next to my house and its amazing. A great addition to Orleans to give us a good taste of fine persian cuisine. Very nice decor and great service, super happy this opened up to give us more options to healthy food for a reasonable price

When I first moved to Ottawa, I didn't even know where Orleans was, but ever since my brother moved there and then my parents moved there, I am in Orleans a lot. My family and I order takeout in Orleans a lot, so we are always excited about new places that open up. My parents love Middle Eastern food, and while Lebanese food is quite ubiquitous in Orleans, I believe that Persis Grill is the first Persian restaurant in Orleans. They opened up recently at the beginning of 2017 in the new complex at Tenth Line and Brian Coburn. There are a few restaurants there, so one evening we decided to get a few things from all of them, and we got the "Persis Special for 2" to try this place out. The special was $32.49 and came with rice, 2 skewers of Koobideh kebabs (ground meat), a mixed skewer of chicken breast kebab and barg kebab (beef), rice, pita bread, grilled tomato, and 2 salads (we got the house salad and the Shirazi salad). The rice was so fluffy and soft. It wasn't oily or greasy like at some places. It's long grain rice. My dad said it was the best rice he's had at a restaurant in Orleans. The meat skewers were flavourful. I only tried a small piece of each, but they were all good. The barg was soft and tender (not tough and chewy). The pita bread was a tiny bit on the dry side, but still good. I didn't have any of the Shirazi salad, but it was basically tiny cubes of cucumbers, tomatoes, and onions in a dressing. The House salad was a basic green salad with romaine lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and carrots. The dressing was creamy. Ingredients were fresh. Although we got takeout, I saw that the restaurant is really nice. It's clean and spacious with nice decor. Staff were also nice and friendly. I'm glad to have another food option in Orleans, especially offering a cuisine that is new to Orleans. The new shopping complex is still a bit sparse at the moment, so lots of open space and lots of free parking.
