|★★★★ Great when i use to live there we used to go every month now we moved across seas but now everytime we go we must go there<3 great food but terrible waitresses|
|★★★★★ Their best dish is their cheapest dish = kabob-e-kubideh! |
|★ I am very suspicious of this place's halal status and have not eaten there in over a year at least because of it.|
I've been in the past on four separate occasions. On each occasion I was told different things about the menu. Once I was told everything was halal, at other times that only the beef items are, at other times that only the chicken items are. One time the waiter said only the chicken jujeh was halal; I asked about another chicken dish and he said its not halal....So yeah, would advise against until someone here can get solid confirmation.
|★★★ I work down the street so figured I'd give it a try, chicken kabob was ok,still tryingto figure out why the spice is minimal if any, the salmon was good. Only downside is the bread is more like a taco tortilla than any afghan or iranian place I've been. Maybe if I go back I'll save it to make a burrito. Lol. Food was good though. Needs to have halal sign, or at least somewhere inside.|
|★ No taste|
|★★★★ Went here for dinner. This place is considered fine dining compared to the other Persian restaurants in the area that serve food on paper plates. The kubideh and chicken jujeh were both very good. Service was impressive. We were assured that the meat was halal.|
|★★★★★ The heart of the Persian menu is the spit-fired kebabs and the lovingly gilded rices, called polos—dishes for which this tiny restaurant in a Tysons office building has almost no peer. |
The kubbideh, or beef-kebab platter, is a marvel—two long flanks of luscious, assertively seasoned minced meat. A mound of fluffy, buttered white rice alongside the meat waits for you to crack in a raw egg—you order it extra—and stir until the grains are glossy and rich. To say that no other dish approaches this pinnacle of deliciousness is not a slur. The soft, pink salmon with herbed rice is excellent, as are the chicken kebabs, succulent cubes crusty with char from the grill. Rice is an end in itself in Persian cooking, and Shamshiry honors the tradition with its shirin polo, a fragrant dish studded with pistachios, almonds, and candied orange peel and suffused with saffron.
The prices are so reasonable and the surroundings so plain that you don’t expect to be taken care of. But there’s elegance in eating here, from the white tablecloths to the lovely pot of hot tea available for the end of the meal. It’s a fine companion for the cream roll or the saffron-and-rose-water ice cream—a dish as simple and luxurious as Shamshiry itself.
|NR This restuarant is not Halal.Dont decieve yourself.If you think halal is saying bismillah before eating than it is halal.|
|★★ I talk to Br. Saleem he said everything Halal except the steak cheese. I ask him where you buy you Meat , he said i'm not going to tell you . Every place i ask they had no problem telling me where they get their meat from. Did not order|
|★★★ the food was very good. first time, we will come again.|
|★★★ I ate there a while ago. I was not impressed with the food and found it overpriced.|
|★ My father knows owners and this place is NOT halal.|
The staff and management tell each customer something different.
Please take off zabihah.com.
|★★★★★ Everything is zabeeha except for the steak. That is exactly what they will tell you if you call or eat there. Please put back on the zabeeha list -- it is an excellent restaurant.|
|★★★★ We confirmed with a previous employee and discovered that Shamshiri restaurant|
does not use Halal meat as they verbally claimed. If the carry Halal meat then they should post the Halal meat sign on their door or in their menu like other Halal restaurants in the area.
|★★★★ Great food rice is great, but Bread and kabob in Vienna has better Bread|
|★★★★★ My first Persian food, and it was wonderful. We shared steak, ground beef and chicken with tadeeg rice. Great food, especially the green stuff with the flat bread!|
|★ They cook Haraam and supposedly Halal meat in the same area. So regardless the Halal meat becomes Haraam when mixed with the juices of the Haraam|
|★ Still not halal, please put on non halal list.|
|★★★★★ Excellent service. They say the only dish that is not halal is the filet mignon.|
|★★★ good food, but mobys is better|
