Visited this restaurant on our way to Great Falls National Park. We both visited many persian restaurants but this topped the list for best food and ambiance. The decor was perfect and the owner was warm and friendly. We loved the stories he shared. We started with some pomegranate stew with chicken. We then enjoyed the sultani combo and Cornish... More

If you are looking for the best kabobs in the area, look no farther than Amoos. The supporting cast of food is also supurb! If you call ahead, your well-wrapped order will be waiting and will still be hot after that 20-minute ride home. If you must eat in, the mirrored wall and the old style diner-like tables are kind...

When I first saw the name of the restaurant, I was expecting the usual Kabob menu. Far from it. Order anything on the menu and you will be happily surprised. Moreover, the menu has frequent additions so go there often and you won't be wearing out the offerings. Example of the surprise: dessert of saffron and some other spiced ice... More

I've been on a quest for the best kabobs for many years now. I've had Afghan, Turkish, Persian, Pakistani...you name it. I was always told Shamshiry was the best. I wasn't impressed. For the longest time I was a Moby Dick fan...until last night. I'm way late on the bandwagon here and this place has already received numerous accolades, but... More

Although I do like Persian / Afghan food, I don't often get to eat it. So, despite grumbles from the family, I insisted on trying Amoo's based on Yelp reviews. We were not disappointed. The decor is a little dated, but with an authentic feel from that part of the world. One could imagine that this was the height of... More

For many years I drove by this restaurant as part of my commute between Arlington and McLean. I always told my self that I would like to try it, but never got around to it. However after I retired I made a point to go one evening and I have been back several times since. I have both eaten in... More

Amoo's situated in a very mundane and nondescript little strip mall in McLean is easily overlooked if someone who is familiar with place does not entice you to try it. The patrons seated at the modest tables are all there for the food-delicious preparations served in large portions. Our favorite is one of their specials-Zereshk Polo and Fesenjoon which we... More

A friend suggested Amoo's for a before theater dinner. I was surprised at the location but my friend is knowledgeable on restaurants so i agreed. Amoo's is in an old strip mall and I wondered if I had the right place until I went inside and was pleased to find a delightfully decorated restaurant. The service was excellent, the menu... More

Based on Tripadvisor reviews of this restaurant, I had lunch today at Amoo's with my two sons and daughter-in-law. The food was two stars at best, but that's not really what I'm reporting on. After the mediocre meal we had, I walked up to the cashier counter and handed my credit card to the young man who had served us... More
