Shawarma rice is one of my favorite comfort food. Since I was feeling particularly down one day, I thought of eating here. I wasn't blown away, but it wasn't bad either. Still a worthwhile eat really, just wasn't what I was expecting.

I love this place, super love the taste of their Chicken Leg Quarter plus unli rice. Taste so good! I wanna try also Kebab, one of their best seller! Come and enjoy here at Maginhawa St. #BestPlaceToDine :)

Though kinda more expensive than your usual kebab joint, this resto along the Maginhawa food zone stands out for its unique (and probably more authentic) flavor. Also, their special mandi rice is more than just the usual buttered rice staple in any Middle Eastern resto.

I don't know how they do it but their rice is just to die for!!! I've only eaten here twice and I ordered two different rice bowls because it's cheaper than the rest of the stuff on the menu, and we order takeout because we have no time (lol), but I'm definitely putting eating here on my to-do list! They offer unlimited rice on some of their meals! Too much exclamation points because their rice is simply amazing!!! 128076

I've never really eaten in a Persian restaurant before so I have nothing to compare the dishes that I tried in here. Beef Kebab was good. I also tried their Shawarmlet which is also good. They also offer unlimited rice for their budget meals which is good for the hungry stomach. The place was spacious for family dining compared to the other joints around the area.

When you find yourself in this area,craving for shawarma and kebabs and you see Mandi Persian Grill, go further. This place wins the Most Disappointing Restaurant in my book. Hashtag: paasa. Paasa na authentic restaurant. 128518

Mandi had the gall to call itself an "authentic" Persian grill when the first reaction that you might have upon entering the place was "Am I in the right place?" The items highlighted in their menu display was grilled chicken, far from the usual Persian fare. Seriously, I though I was in some Mang Inasal copycat!

We were too tired to look for another place so we decided to stay there and ordered Beef Shawarma, a soda and Mango "Yogurt" shake. Why the ""? Read on.

The shawarma was nothing like the usual: lukewarm pita and ground beef inside served with diluted garlic sauce. A 35-peso shawarma at the food court tasted much better. Oh and the mango "yogurt" shake? No hint of yogurt at all, hence the "" 128554

The only good thing I can say about this place is that they have decent free wifi.

Tried this place out with friends spontaneously.
I loved eating Mandi rice and chicken when I still lived in Dubai so I had pretty high standards. haha
I ordered an M1 (Unli Mandi Rice with Chicken Thigh) and a Shawarmlet. I have no idea why they call it a Shawarmlet though.

The rice was not the authentic long-grain rice that is found in Mandi but it tasted pretty good anyway and I found myself asking for seconds.
The chicken piece was quite small and mediocre though.
The Shawarmlet tasted surprisingly well but it was served cold.

The rice is great and I can see myself coming back sometime when I'm craving for Mandi. haha

Hmmmm. Looking for a good place to eat around teacher's village, Janno and I decided to try this place. I'm a bit half hearted about this restaurant.

Janno ordered the Barbeque Chicken, w/ unlimited rice, and it was quite good and the price was around php120. But still, not superb, nothing out of the ordinary.

I ordered the Beef Keema. I had high expectations because I always order keema when I'm in Persian restaurants like Mister Kebab and Ababu and they never failed me. But, as you can see in the photo, I paid php130 for a very small serving, and very small pita breads. The taste was good, but I think the portions were just unfair.

I won't recommended this restaurant if you're on a budget. Better yet try Ababu / Mister Kebab if you're into persian food 128077

My organization, the UP Pre-Medical Society, has just finished its applicants’ orientation so we are ravishing for some dinner. Our usual place is in the Maginhawa strip but since we were a bunch of almost rowdy kids, we cannot fit inside the places we frequent. Luckily, this place got lots of elbow room. We practically rented it!

The ambience was a notch up your usual cafeteria. Inside are group tables arranged using multi-colored sofas. The air conditioning was sub par. The wifi was nonexistent. I asked the cashier as to what happened, it just got broken. Too bad. But, to kill boredom we played cards, instead.

The food came around 20 minutes later. We got complimentary iced teas, which are kind of sampaguita flavored. Some of my orgmates were not accustomed to the taste, so more iced tea for the foodie in me. Yay!

Their signature rice was this Persian mandi rice. Yellow and a bit to the oily side, the rice lovers were quite happy with their purchases. I ordered the M1 (Chicken Thigh unli-rice) which costs Php 79. All of their rice meals are unli-rice except for the rice bowls.

Nutshell: The place is perfect for your not-so-usual barkada nights.
