We ordered Kebob and Tah dig. I cant say anything how much tah dig was Delicious. Home made Doogh was ok but it needs more salt.

We visited with our 3 year old and 1 year old for dinner. When we asked for closed lid water cups for our kids, they said that we would need to order something other than water to get the closed lid cups. This was rather unorthodox for a restaurant to worry about $.05 plastic cups. When I asked the busboy, he said he could ask the manager. The manager came by and said that they ran out of lids and that our waiter was misinformed. He basically threw his server under the bus for his choice to hold back on cups that we could clearly see sitting on the bar counter. At the same time, there was another family where a little girl ordered lemonade and they brought out a plastic topless cup. It was not more than two minutes later that this little girl had sugary juice all over her clothes.

I'm sorry, but this was just unfortunate and poor management. My best experiences at restaurants come when the manager or owner feels like he is hosting a party and understands how to make people feel. Unfortunately, this small incident really did not make us feel welcome.

Very busy restaurant with a nice atmosphere. The kitchen is open and it's interesting to see the food being prepared.

Service was good and we enjoyed our meal. We had shirazi salad, mast o khiar, lubia polo with chicken koobideh, sultani, and baklava/tea for desert. Everything was delicious and we would go there again.

Generous portions and a good meal all the way around.

Visiting from FL, and already eaten here twice for dinner. We ate chicken kabob @ $12.95 and lamb kabob @ $17.95 tonight, both reasonably priced for the amount of food received. Be prepared to take a doggie bag home, but not for your dog. Great tasting food, reasonable prices, excellent service .... perfect combination. Parking can be a challenge, but worth the drive. Hope this is helpful for all you first-timers.

Shamshiri was packed when we visited recently for lunch. The service was nevertheless prompt and cheerful. The menu is extensive and the pricing and portion sizes are generous. The food was average to slightly above average. The crowd appeared to be weighted toward Persians so the other reviews attesting to authenticity of cuisine are likely very accurate. It was certainly clearly quality Mediterranean food. We will be very likely to return given how positive this first experience was.
