Having grown up close to Dearborn, MI (which has the highest Middle-Eastern population outside of the Middle East), I have had some really good Persian food. This place seriously had the best chicken kabob's I have ever had. We came here for a work lunch on a friend's recommendation. It was pretty empty when we got there, but packed by... More

The kabobs were ok. The chicken ok, the waitress pleasant. Got a brief look in the kitchen and unfortunately that was not ok

Maybe the rice isn't as good as Shamshiri, but their kubideh (beef), joojeh (chicken) and barg (steak) are better, especially the chicken. But my favorite dish here that nobody else seems to offer is the Lubia polo. A rise dish mixed with tomato sauce, green beans and bits of steak. I love it. I also like that they make their... More

Better than most kebob places in the Fairfax area. The chicken was juicy. The filet was a little dry, but it's a dry cut, so wasn't surprised.

This well hidden restaurant on Maple Avenue has one of the best kabobs in the area. It's a little more upscale, but way above the quality of chain restaurants. Be sure to try out the chicken with bones (Jujeh kabob), which IMHO is their best dish.

One of our favorite places in the DC area. Family-run, they always remember us and what we like when we come in. DELICIOUS lamb & chicken kabobs, great side dishes, everything terrific down to their freshly-brewed iced tea. Love love love love LOVE these good folks and the food they share.

Have been coming to Rose for many years. Hands down the best lamb and boneless chicken kabobs in the DC area. Portions are large - two can split one of the combos. That's pretty much all you need to know. There are many other good items on the menu (Eggplant dip and the Yogurt with cucumber goes well with the... More

Plenty of parking out back. Menu has stayed the same for many years, though with new ownership, prices have risen, but still moderately priced. Most succulent lamb or chicken kabobs you'd find anywhere. One or two wait staff can slow service, which is the only reason that I awarded four instead of five dots. If you are not familiar with...

We make it a point to go here at least once a month. Not more than that because we would end up bigger than houses. We absolutely love the zareshk pollo with chicken kabob. my other favorite is the gheymeh badamjon. You also cannot leave until you have had the kashk-o-badamjoon as your appitizer. Love love love this resturant.
