The best Persian food in Virginia. Delicious food with great service. The prices for that amount of food is awesome.

This is one of those places where the people from the country show up in droves. We went there in a Sunday afternoon, and the place was packed with Persians. The food was plentiful and very reasonably priced.

The restaurant is simple and small but the staff could learn a lot to be more professional and what is service industry is about The price is average and acceptable Still I would prefer to explore other...

First time eating Iranian restaurant. The place is located in a strip mall and open quite late in night. The food is very healthy and mostly grilled. The rice is absolutely the best I have eaten and my family agrees. Service is good. Be aware that Paneer Sabzi is not a curry dish like in India. It is a salad... More

Food is ok but the staff is very very rude. They talk to you as if you were dirt. And after all the rudeness I has to deal with from the staff, they slapped me with a 15% gratuity on a table of 5. I would never go back here.

If your in Vienna / Tysons Corner, you're in the mood for Middle Eastern food, The Lebanese You have to visit Shamshiry. The kitchen is very clean, food presentation is good, and the taste is out of this world :-) They serve platters or family style. Good Value, Great Food.

Just off Leesburg Pike, this Irani kabob restaurant serves some of the best kabobs I have ever had. Shamshiry seems to be a very popular place and has crowds gathered around it on the weekends. I ordered the Chelo Kabob Shamshiry, which comes with both kubideh and barg. The barg meat was good, but the kubideh was absolutely fantastic. The... More

The food was very tasty, the service friendly but the atmosphere was just ok. Worth trying if you enjoy Persian/Middle Eastern food.
