Friends invited us to join them for dinner on Saturday night at Panjshir. They'd been many times, but this was our first visit. We absolutely loved the place. The service is friendly and the food is fantastic. We'll absolutely be going back. You should give...More

We used to visit the old location in Broad Street, but the new location is more spacious and light The food and welcome though remain the same at the same excellent level. If you've never eaten Afghan cuisine before be prepared for gentle, flavorsome dishes....More

We had dinner at Panjshir in their previous location in Arlington and in the new one. The food was very tasty both times, and we think the new place has more space and a nicer ambiance. All of their Afghan dishes--similar to Persian cuisine--are tasty....More

The food at the new location is still great. We had lamb shanks and kadu palow, with sides of spinach, turnips, and carrots and prunes, and everything was delicious. The price, along with wine and one order of baklava, was a very reasonable $140 for...More

Once again Panjshir did not disappoint. I like the sambosay goshti (little fried meet pies with a deliciously spicy green chili sauce) and kadu chalow (sauteed pumpkin with spinach rice). Attentive service, excellent food and ability to speak in a normal voice over dinner or...More

We always get the vegetarian combo of three items--in our case, pumpkin, spinach, and eggplant. It comes with flavorful rice. We're not vegetarians but we love this dish. We shared a bottle of Josh Cabernet that was very nice. Others had Montoo, chicken kabob, and...More

We ate here with local friend who had eaten at their previous location. Afghani owners very friendly and answered many questions and made recommendations. As older vegetarians we don't handle peppery heat like we used to. Our several mains were seasoned with Afghani spices, different...More

Note that Panshjir has relocated to a new facility at 114 E. Fairfax Street in Falls Church, VA. The menu is largely the same as before, with several excellent vegetarian options, but the facilities are superior and there is plenty of parking.

We had roast lamb with vegetables and lamb kabob with rice. For starter they offered us "potato samosa" with spicy green chilly sauce. Rice with lamb was really good, very courteous & friendly service. They also offered freshly baked bread.
