I'm a frequent visitor to this restaurant and always leave with a smile on my face. The portions are great, the food is better then terrific and the service (on a less crowded day) is splendid. No wonder they are so busy and have been in business for so many years. I have family members coming to visit me from... More

Luckily we have a Persian friend who knew just what to order. The rice is amazing with the cherries on it. We also had a chicken and steak dish and a vegetarian dish. Everything was overwhelmingly delicious. Can not wait to go back.

This wasn't a good experience for any of us. I'm glad to be able to say that I will never go back. Upon seeing the name of the restaurant, I immediately began to think of the song "Chim Chim Cher-ee" from Mary Poppins. But no, this is far from anything related to the musical. We were encouraged by someone that... More

The food was excellent, the kebab kopeda and saffron rice is very good. The appetizers are a combination of Persian and middle eastern varieties specially the yogurt based ones.

This is a local Persian Restaurant walking distance to the Sheraton Hotel, Tyson Corner. We decide to try the food. It was ok, but not my type of food. The portions were very good if you like lots of rice. The filet Mignon was overcooked. No alcohol is served. The food was nicely served. Serve staff and owners did not... More
