Sam’s Persian Restaurant

Time and careful attention to detail go into every dish at Sam’s Persian Restaurant. Traditional family recipes fill the simple menu, with a focus on meat-driven dishes like kabob kaboodeh, lamb, or saffron chicken. Each colorful plate provides generous portions to share or take home to enjoy later.

Every item offered at Sam’s is created fresh to order – this isn’t fast food so expect a short wait when you order. Vegetables are grilled along with meat entrees, which take hours to prepare due to the Persian technique of marinating cuts of meat in yogurt, lemon juice, or lime juice before grilling on the kabob. From ground meat kabobs to ribs to bone-in or cubed chicken, every meal is a fragrant, flavorful adventure.

After experimenting with the Amarillo palate, Sam’s will expand the limited menu to include more traditional Iranian stews, soups, and meats, with sweet treats for dessert.

2522 Paramount Blvd., 350.7400

Open Monday, 11 a.m.-8 p.m. and Wednesday through Sunday, 11 a.m.-8 p.m.
