The Lion City has welcomed merchants and students from Persia for hundreds of years. From the 16th century onwards, merchants from Shiraz or Esfahan travelled to southeast Asia, and to this day the two countries have close cultural links. But until recently, there weren't that many Persian restaurants in Singapore. However, as a quick look at the Quandoo database proves, that's all changing, with a number of Persian restaurants opening in Singapore, serving up Iranian delicacies that straddle the boundary between India and the Middle East.
If you want to treat your family to cuisine that is just a little out of the ordinary, yet still familiar enough to make menu choices easily, Persian restaurants in Singapore could be just what you are looking for. With popular dishes like manti (spiced meat dumplings), kuku (a kind of egg tart) and plenty of pilafs (which resemble Indian biryanis), these eateries have menus that won't leave anyone out in the cold. And with relaxing interiors, music and superb service, they are exceptional family venues.
Whatever brings you to central areas like Boat Quay or Clarke Quay, you can enjoy a gourmet meal straight from the heart of Iran. There's a cluster of highly-rated Persian restaurants in central Singapore, just a short walk from Fort Canning Park, shopping complexes by the river and the theatres and cinemas of the Downtown Core. So, if you are visiting the centre of town for an evening of culture, why not make it extra special by reserving some space at one of Singapore's Persian restaurants?
When you sit down for dinner in the Lion City's Iranian eateries, you'll be transported to an entirely different culinary world. Singapore's Persian restaurants strive to create perfectly authentic Iranian dishes. Whether they are flame-grilling lamb kebabs or chops marinated in Mashhad style, cooking jumbo prawns in a delicate Iranian herb mixture, or creating vegetarian-friendly pomegranate salads, the tastes and aromas at Singapore's best Persian restaurants are out of this world. So enjoy a gastronomic adventure by booking with Quandoo.
