Miri's Kitchen

At Miri’s Kitchen

We are dedicated to serving the finest Persian food from Iran.  Our food is made of the freshest meat, vegetables, and herbs as well as delicious rice with saffron. 


The heart and soul of Miri’s Kitchen is its owner and chef, Ms. Parvaneh Miri.  Ms. Miri left Iran in January 1998 and came to the United States to pursue her dreams.  She immediately started her studies at The Culinary Arts Schools in Santa Barbara, CA.  However, due to a job offer, Ms. Miri had to move to Houston in August 2000 and continue her education at The Houston Community College (HCC).  Ms. Miri graduated from the Hotel & Restaurant Management Program of the HCC in 2003.

After working for over 20 years at a Persian restaurant as well as at the Four Seasons Hotel and St. Regis Hotel, she decided to start her own business where she could implement her concept of “From Miri’s Kitchen to Your Dining Table”.  In November 2021, she opened Miri’s Kitchen offering delicious Persian cuisine as well as specializing in catering services, private dining, banquets, business meetings, and corporate events.  Mrs. Miri has a passion for quality and service and is committed to having a warm, inviting atmosphere and family-focused attitude at the Miri’s Kitchen.

You may think that Persian food is all about Kebabs.  However, Persian food offers a variety of tasty vegetarian and vegan dishes.  Please come and experience the magic of Persian cuisine at Miri’s Kitchen.

Loving it and recommending it. They are also masters in catering. Truly enjoyed ir
Best persian restaurant in Houston! The Kubideh was extremely delicious and the Fesenjan too. Will come back soon!
Excellent persian food! 👏👏👏
Its my first time here and I am definitely in love with this place. The food here is great and made my taste buds explode with ecstasy. The service and atmosphere was exceptional as well.
Just had my first lunch at this restaurant with my wife. And I tried every single Persian restaurant in town. We both ordered kabob and it was tender and juicy and tasted great. After that we had their special ice cream and I enjoyed the rich flavor of Zafron and quite handful amount of pistachio with low sweetness on it. My wife had baklava and tried some of it also was great. This is a true 5 star for several reasons:1- the place is cozy and pleasant to have family time2- the food quality is good.3- waiters are so attentive and polite4- there is no waiting time upon entry and we got our order on our table 15 minutes after we placed the order.5- the amount of food was enough in a way we had a little left overs.6- it wasn’t noisy or crowded and vibe was comfortable with no hookah inside and air conditioning ( been in places sweating while eating)Yes highly recommend it!
We had a family lunch today at Miri’s kitchen and it was my first experience. I ordered kabob ( Barg) and it was tender and juicy. The waiters were so attending and respectful. The amount of time we spent for the order was reasonable not more then 15 minutes upon our arrival. We also had tea with some sweets and baklava and tea tasted just like home made and very low sweetened. Overall I had a good experience and for sure I go back and YES recommend this place.
The food was very good, and i like the different options on the menu especially the sandwiches! Definity worth giving a try. The service could have been better but overall it was a great experience! And I will definitely go back!
Wonderful restaurant!!! Love the food. the people that run it are just awesome I’ve been here several times and everything is wonderful!! you will not be disappointed! The quality is a 10+. Great area of town also by memorial park and has a great patio dining. They also do wonderful catering

Amazing food! Loved the tahdig and chicken koobideh! Staff was amazing too.
So awesome to have amazing Persian food right here in the neighborhood!
Enjoyed our first experience at Miri’s. We will be back 🙂
Great environment and delicious food. We ordered a lot of food for the table and it came quickly. Very clean and good staff in a good area. Everyone was happy with the food and will be back again!
Driving fromAustin for a concert here in Houston, we stopped by this place and i can say so far the best Persian food i’ve tried in whole texas. We came back the day after to try it again before we move back to austin and we enjoyed the food and their hospitality again and again, nice staff , clean place and amazing food, highly recommended.
True Iranian Hospitality and high quality food. Definitely recommend.
Best Persian restaurant in town. Delicious food,Friendly staff and super clean. Highly recommended.
I try Chicken koobideh , it was amazing . My favorite food
Food was excellent, service was great.I had a wonderful time and very friendly.I will definitely go back once or twice a week.
One of the newest persian resitaurant to join Houston dining scene. Enjoyed the food and the decoration. We had Kashke Bademjan (Eggplant dip) which tasted like home. The yogurt drink had just the right combination of seasonings and the kebobs were made to order. The dill-fava bean rice was phenomenal because of fresh dill rather than dry dill. They can improve on table service but considering the place is rather new, I have high hopes that it will soon be top spot for Houston Persian Cuisine.
Food was amazing and the place was lovely, the only problem is that they dont have enough staff for the weekends. But overall we had a good experience and we will be going back again!! Highly recommended!
This place is really lovely. They have a beautiful patio on the side covered by oak trees with twinkle lights and comfortable patio furniture. I had the Gormeh Sabzi, which came with saffron rice and they gave me complimentary hummus and pita. The food was great and the waitress was really nice and answered a bunch of my questions about the dish. Can’t wait to go back.
A wonderful restaurant for lunch and dinner. A pleasant wait staff and Ms. Miri’s smile always adds more ambience.
It’s the closest to authentic Persian food outside of Iran. The food is served in style. It’s just a few tables inside but beautiful alfresco seating outside with fragrant plants.. If the evening was pleasant the food and the ambience sings it’s own melody. They have helpful servers. I absolutely loved their food. I will definitely be going back to explore more dishes.
Amazing Persian food. Everything we tried was absolutely delicious. Ghormesabzi, gheime and even fesenjoon was amazing. Great service
Finally a real Persian restaurant in Houston !Amazing food , good vibe and nice presentation.
Perfect and nothing else thank you
Food soooooo Good , price very good … all over , super and good to try
Only open for 6 months and it has a steady repeat clientele. It’s because of the quality of dishes on the menu. They are fresh and tasty. Nice outdoor seating. Great presentation and portion size at a reasonable price .
Excellent food and very cozy restaurant, service was also excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant it’s one of the best Persian restaurants in town
Amazing iranian resturant at memorial dr near downtown. Everyone needs to try this great resturant
Great salad. Even greater Persian ice cream! Don’t miss out on this amazing ice cream 🍨 saffron and pistachio super delicious. Definitely 5 star ⭐️
The best Persian restaurant ever.
Great food and very nice place
Best fesenjoon ever 👌🏼Milad’s friend 😊
One of the best Iranian restaurants near downtown. Very nice place. Great management. And perfect food
Really solid Persian fare. Very clean and very fresh. I highly recommend.
The best Persian kabob that I’ve ever had in Houston. The only disappointing part was the bread that was coming with the complementary hummus. I think they need to either bake their own bread or use a better quality bread.
We’re always looking for new and unique flavors. Chef Miri didn’t disappoint our taste buds. All the dishes were well proportioned, the meats were tender but not over cooked. The flavors were subtle and not over powering so it encouraged me to keep trying the other dishes on the table. I can’t wait to go back. Bonus points for BYOB next time.
Fantastic service and meal. We tried a few different things and it was all delicious. Highly recommend it to anyone thinking about trying this place. You will not be disappointed.
We had boneless chicken kebab with hummus. The quality and taste of food was excellent. Hummus was okay but kebabs were perfect. Great customer service and atmosphere. A bit pricey but delicious.
Excellent food and service. We enjoyed our time in Miri’s Kitchen Persian.
Wow, hands down one of the best Persian food in H.town . We order reybye and boneless chicken ,both taste wonderful , so tender and taste. Very fresh . Service was great and very friendly. Feel like your home. Good job Miri’s kitchen
Thanks milad
If you looking for fresh and fast food with best quality I highly recommend this place
Authentic Persian food and very friendly staff. I was in Houston for business and was looking for a Persian restaurant near downtown to take my colleague to and found this gem. They seemed to be newly established business with good reviews and decided to give it a try. We tried Mirza Ghasemi, Sabzi plate, Crispy Rice (Tahdig) and Sultani Kabob and everything exceeded our expectations! Highly recommended.
In the past few months I’ve been at a few events where I had the food catered from Miri’s Kitchen and finally had an opportunity to go to this restaurant in person. OMG on the taste, quality of food and service. Bar none the best Persian cuisine in H-town. Their apps are to die for and you will not go wrong in anything you try as we have a family style wide selection servings. Their Persian ice cream is to die for…….make it your cheat day snack 😎
Wow! This was a great experience! lots of variety, and many dining options. place is clean, and what great ambiance. The place has amazing staff and they’re very very friendly. The food was excellent! Flavorful! their covid-19 protocol is great. I highly recommend it and will be back!
One of the best restaurants I have ever been to in Houston. The service was one-of-a-kind and the food was authentic as you could ever have . Thank you for the amazing service and food. I will def recommend this restaurant to everyone . Persian food at its finest
Excellent food, friendly staff
Decent Persian food. I recommend Chicken kebab with bone & Sultani kebab.
Warm & welcoming ambiance with the most delicious foo & the proprietor is the best
Amazing Food kind staff clean and super great!
I lived here in San Antonio Texas over 15 years, and there are a few good quality Persian restaurant here in San Antonio. We had a work trip to Houston Texas this last weekend and after a long day driving and work. we decided to stop at Miri’s kitchen for dinner. There are no words to describe the quality of the food or management or the service we had received. If you are in Houston you can not afford to miss the opportunity and not to try the food. Highly recommended will go there every chance I get to visit Houston Texas from now on…Thank you
Nice place, beautiful decoration and incredibly delicious food. Authentic Persian recipes of all the food we tried including kabobs and Rice. You got to go and try it.
Hawaii chicken is perfect and just melts in your mouth 🤤 highly recommended, super friendly stuff 🙌🏻 don’t think, just stop by this place 📍👍🏻
Nice food, excellent waitress!
I moved from England over a year ago and have literally tried every Iranian restaurant in Houston, however not one has tasted authentic like Miris. Everything was on point from their tahdig to their khoresht to their koobideh. Feeling blessed to have home made Iranian cooking at my disposal. Khodaya Shokret!
Amazing food . The meat was excellent as well as the dessert and yogurt. The quality is great and over all an awesome experience !
Food was excellent and service beyond expectation. Very elegantly decorated and prices are good.
High quality Persian food in Houston. Keep up the good work. 🤌🏻
Great food and service will definitely be back 👌👌
Such good food and service! Happy to have this option nearby!
Great food, great serviceThe real Persian “ Kabab Barg” made with Filet mignon.بهترین کباب برگ با گوشت فیله تازه
Excellent food, great service! Very nice ambience. Food is very tasty here. Had Soltani and Fesenjoon. Soltani’s beef was very tender and cooked to perfection. It has the original Persian kebab texture. Fesenjoon had such an authentic balanced seasoning that is usually reserved for your mother’s home recipes and cannot be found in other Persian restaurants. Portions are big and prices were also quite reasonable. What’s even better is that you can take your own wine and there is NO corkage fee! Highly recommended!
The best in Houston! Love the eggplant dip. Best in Houston. Kabob, best in Houston. Just like the old country. Persian is a thing of its own and if you know, you know. I know Persian and this is as legit as it comes. Service is also amazing here. Sweetest people on earth. Couldn’t say enough good things. So thrilled it’s a place I can frequent!
Excellent food. Reasonably priced. Nice ambiance.
Amazing Food, Amazing Staff! If you are looking for an exceptional food experience, this restaurant has a lot to offer. I personally had the best Kabab Barg (Rib eye Kabab) in my life there. Their Fesenjoon is a new concept of tast which can’t be described! Must have it to get what I’m talking about!
Miri’s kitchen is the best experience I had since long time, it has whatever you wish for and more.The place is in great location with a chic decoration ,very high end utensils and welcoming space.The owner is very nice and the food was amazing! BEST BARG ever🤩!!!Definitely will be back soon.
The food is absolutely amazing!!! Between the 3 of us we got to taste a bunch of different item/all awesome: fresh herbs and feta and walnuts plate, yogurt dip with shallots, Tahdigh with stew topping, chicken kebab with dill rice, eggplant and chicken stew, and ended with some good hot tea and Persian ice cream and Faloodeh, all so very delicious!! The restaurant is small, cozy and super clean and the service is great and very friendly. Also you can bring your own wine (Spec’s is nearby!) or order a glass of doogh! We absolutely loved it and can’t wait to go back soon!!
Had a very nice lunch. The chicken kebab was tender and juicy. The service was excellent.
Not a big restaurant. Small, clean and cute place.The food taste like homemade. The service was great. My kabob was beautifully made,Ghormeh Sabzi was really yummy, and TAHDIG was super crunchy. We go back and recommend it to friends.
Miri’s is wonderful. True Persian food which is different than Lebanese. If you’re looking for Lebanese food, this is not it. I had the lentils and rice with raisins and dates. It was extremely filling and had enough left over for two other meals. My friend had the rice with fava beans and dill. When the staff realized she did not care for it, they brought her a sampling of three other rice dishes (my friend is vegan). The complimentary hummus is creamy and very tasty. I’ll definitely be back to try the lamb and other dishes. The staff is attentive and extremely accommodating. There’s an outdoor area to sit at as well.
We got the hummus and samosas and the package for 2 beef kabobs. Everything was spectacular! The hummus is so smooth and some of the best I have ever had. The samosas had just enough spice and perfect crispness! The meat was very tender and flavorful. I’m happy to have a Persian spot closer to home. I will definitely be back!
OMG where do I even begin! Everything was amazing. Delicious kebobs. Big portions. Clean and nice place and great hospitality from the owner and the staff. Best Persian food in Houston.
Every year around holidays I treat my co workers for a meal. I picked miri’s kitchen this year. I am very familiar with persian food quality and taste. They lmpressed me and all the coworkers with both. Some famous persian dishes can be ordered meatless.service and prices are excellent. Thank you .
Здесь был один из лучших кебабов, которые я ел в Хьюстоне. Спасибо
This cozy spot replaced a donut shop and I’m glad it did! It’s family-owned and the food is amazing. My husband and I popped in to try a few things. We ordered the lamb kabob and gorma sabzi. YUM!!! both were so so good. Customer service is good and they offer complimentary hummus.If you accidentally eat too much like me, order the hot tea. The tea helps to ease your digestion.P.S – Don’t skip the ice cream 😉
The food are delicious and they’re very friendly……. thank you
Amazing staff, so friendly, and their food was really good 👍 I highly recommend it 🥰
The best Persian food in townThank you Miri❤🌹
Really enjoyed the family sampler!Light, exquisite, flavorful, amazing care and 💕 in the food. Fine Persian cuisine! Excellent dips and bread.
So happy Houston has a new spot for persian food. Beautiful interior design, cozy patio outside, and delicious food. Everything tastes wonderful. We already hosted 2 parties and everyone loved their food. Kashk bademjan is a must try. Staff are very friendly and caring. Overall very satisfied with everything!
The restaurant is very beautiful and elegant and to top it off, the food was amazing! Everything had so much flavor. We had our company Christmas party there recently and we all had a blast! We were looked after very well by all staff. Will definitely come back for more soon!
This place is amazing! Food was absolutely delicious! The staff is very friendly and inviting. Also, the decore of the restaurant is done very tastefully. We are very happy we found this place!
