Mirage Persian Cuisine Restaurant Review

: Family-owned and -operated, Mirage Persian Cuisine has logged a decade and a half in Atlanta. Whatever you order, do not bypass something with eggplant: creamy, fragrant and rich, it invites the use of the Persian flatbread to scoop up every last bit. Main courses, served with saffron-topped basmati rice, range from lamb to chicken and grilled vegetable dishes. Kebabs are a staple of the cuisine. We especially like the uniquely flavored lamb shanks or khoreshs (stews), our favorite being fesenjoon: chicken in a thick pomegranate-based sauce. Vegetarian selections are both extensive and aromatic with fascinating flavors. Made-in-house desserts include faloudeh, for which rice noodles are enclosed in a rosewater-scented sorbet. Squeeze some lemon juice on top and you’ll find it most palate refreshing. The wine list isn't extensive but it contains some by-the-glass offerings that pair well with the food; a rosé is lacking, which would be ideal with the fare, but the Monteviña White Zinfandel complements the fesenjoon. Have a cup of tea or the serious Persian coffee.
