Nice, small restaurant off the main road. Nice ambience, good for couples. Good service. Salmon kebab was quite tasty and would recommend but I would want to sample other kebabs on next visit. Nice side dishes included.

Don like the pita bread. I miss having the loaf of bread. Wish they would bring it back. Also the tea is delisious and i really like all of their food but the bread. I probably wont go back unless the bread changes.

Upon entering this restaurant I felt welcomed. It is clean, nicely appointed, and the background music is soothing. From what I gathered from the menu, everything is shish kabob style. We ordered the lamb and also filet mignon shish kabobs. The Persian rice was also...very delicious! Our server first brought us our salads that were fresh and crisp as well as some naan and two dipping sauces. I don’t know what they were, but they were delicious. It was fairly quiet for lunch which was nice for us. We will definitely come here again. I cannot believe that I haven’t been here sooner!More

Once every few months the co-workees and I will place an order for pickup. Every time is is delicious. They have a lunch menu which gives you less and it still is enough for two lunches!

The food is second to none. It is exceptional Persian cuisine and locally owned. The meal comes with a salad, bread, meat of choice, saffron rice and grilled veggies. The Tandoori provided with bread and cooked in the kabobs is AMAZING and she finally sells...it by the jar (I highly recommend it in eggs yumm). It is on the higher end for pricing; approximately 30-50 dollars a plate. The baklava is made in house and is Persian style, which is soooo soooo good. She also does homemade ice cream which is to die for. The owner is amazing and is always there, and her family works there as well. One of my most favorite restaurants.More

Waldorf is not really well-known for outstanding dining offerings, but Silver Skewers has to be the best kept secret of the dining world out here. It’s not much to look at from the outside: sitting in a tiny strip center on Okd Washington Road next...to a storage facility and a hair salon, it’s easy to overlook. Don’t overlook it! Don’t drive past! Turn in and enjoy delicious skewers, cinnamon tea, grilled vegetables and the absolute best basmati rice you’ve ever had, sprinkles with saffron and dried lemon peel.More

I was on the hunt for Meditteranean and asked friends for suggestions. I decided on Silver Skewers and I am so glad that I did! The chicken and house kabobs are amazing. The rice is delicious. All of the food is fresh, flavorful and seasoned...extremely well. Kamari and Kentavia are great!More

We went with some couples for dinner at Silver Skewers and though we had been years ago and enjoyed it, they seemed to have upped their game. The service was excellent, and from the moment we stepped into the restaurant, the servers were friendly and...attentive. They immediately brought fresh fruit infused water, delicious green salads, and warm pita bread with tandoori and tzaziki dipping sauces—all delicious. The entrees looked and tasted amazing. The rice was delicious with aromatic spices, and between us all we had salmon, chicken, house, and filet mignon kebabs, along with fresh grilled veggies. The meats were juicy and the marinade made them flavorful and tender. Because we all loved the entrees so much, we decided to go for dessert. The homemade cinnamon ice cream, baklava and cakes were the icing on the cake so to speak. Really, this is one of the best dining experiences we’ve had in Waldorf in a really long time. The servers were courteous, polite and made sure all our needs were met without being intrusive! It’s so great to see a non-chain, family-owned restaurant thrive in this town! Go Silver Skewers!More

While they do have gluten free options on the menu I do not believe they are a true gluten free kitchen which means your food could come in contact with gluten items... j
