Pros: Fresh breads with a good dipping sauce is served right away. Unique soup options. Very well prepared meats (especially kebobs). Helpful service. They have daily specials and consistency favorites on the main menu.

Cons: Several options on the menu are very unique and therefore can be very hit or miss, especially from the daily menu.

Summary: A fantastic option in Bethesda that has well prepared ethnic foods and great service.

Quick affordable and delicious lunch. Beef lamb rice and sumac. Awesome.

Even the free toasted pita tips with yogurt and parsley mint was great.

While visiting DC we ate at this nice Persian restaurant in Bethesda which though on a main street was rather hidden. The service was courteous and prompt. We had lamb which was our favorite. The portions were more than adequate. We found out afterwards that there was free parking in the back but we had already parked. We were very pleased with this restaurant.

I am very happy we found this place. It doesn't look like much from the street, but it's very nice inside. But the decor isn't all that important to me, so lets talk about food. It was excellent! Every single thing we ordered was delicious. The flatbread that the waiter brought out before the meal was freshly baked with excellent crackling crust. The kabobs (chicken thigh) were perfectly marinated, juicy, and very flavorful. The fesanjoon had a home cooked quality to it, was very comforting (which is great at an unfamiliar place). We don't normally order desserts, but this time we ordered a Napoleon and I am so glad we did. It was perfect! Last time I tasted a Napoleon this great was when my grandma made it, 20 years ago. As if all this is not enough to recommend this place, the prices are very affordable (comparable to having a meal at a Panera Bread-type place). And the service was amazing - very prompt, attentive and unobtrusive. Overall, a fantastic place!

We went here for dinner with some friends. We all enjoyed the food, and the service was fast and friendly. I ordered the fesanjoon, a stew made with pomegranate syrup and ground walnuts. It was really good. I've ordered this dish before at other Persian restaurants, but this was about the best I've had in a restaurant. Most of my friends had various types of kebabs, all of which were good. Prices were quite reasonable, and waiters were very attentive. Overall, a very pleasant dining experience. If you arrive by car, there's lots of of free parking out back, in front of Smoothie King (2 hour limit).
