★★★★★ I've been here a few times. Full disclosure: food is great! Service? not so much.
I'm taking a full star off only because of service. I've had an extremely bad experience here before. I still go afterwards, but just know that the service really isn't that great.
All kabobs are great here. Kubideh isn't as good as, say, Shamshiri. But the joojeh and lamb and barg are very close to Rose Kabob quality. The ice cream dessert is definitely the best Persian Ice Cream I've had in a restaurant in DC. They have many waiters and is a little more upscale than the cheaper places. Prices are reasonable for the food. Friends Kabob around the corner is a little cheaper with similar quality food, but doesn't have the same waiter service (however Friends Kabob has much better service). Posted on February 16, 2017
★★★★★ Came to VA from NYC and decided to give this place a try because of the high rating. Was not disappointed at all... The food was absolutely amazing and the dining experience was great due to the kind/courteous staff. They suggested that I try the soltani special and after taking their advice I received an aromatic mountain of rice with a generous portion of tender koobideh and barg kabob that were grilled to perfection. I am definitely going to stop by to eat here again whenever I am in VA. Posted on March 30, 2016
