Everything clicks in this Persian restaurant, including its central location, superb ambience, excellent kabobs and rice, and last but not the least the friendly service. On an exceptionally warm December Saturday, the place was quickly filled with clientele shortly after noon. Everything tasted very good and satisfying to everybody in our party, including beef kabob, grilled salmon, rice pilaf, saffron... More

Very popular (at least Sunday at lunch). Friendly comfortable atmosphere. A bit crowded. Wait staff very friendly but on the slow side Tried several of the rice dishes, beef, chicken. All were very good but nothing different than I've had in many other similar restaurAnts

Shamshiry is my new favorite spot for kebabs. Large portions of kebab and rice and taste is authentic. Ambience is not fancy but place is always packed with locals and middle easterners who know how good this place is. That's always a good sign.

We had Wednesday and Thursday dinner there. I enjoyed the Kubideh Kabob and Soltani (Shamshiry Kabob). Super friendly people!

When you're in DC you have to try one of the local kabab restaurants. I tried a handful, and the best in my opinion is Shamshiry. Especially the kubideh, it's so tender and juicy!! Amazing food!!

We enjoyed our authentic meal. The atmosphere is old school and the place was packed. The service was great and the meal even better. There was much more food than two people could eat, so consider splitting an order.
