We also offer authentic Persian cuisine on a daily basis. We are located in Rockville, Maryland and easily accessible from anywhere in the Washington metropolitan area.

The four of us went to Yekta for dinner ahead of a concert at the Strathmore about 15 minutes down the road. First, it was quiet. Second, the menu had several unusual items which made it tough to choose. Hire, and most important for me, the hummous and he Zeytoon Parvardeh (green olives and walnuts marinated with pomegranate molasses, herbs and garlic) that came with our Mezze plate were spectacular. All the flavors for both starters and main meals were intense and wonderful, but I could only so much before my taste buds were worn out. The desserts, which we had no time or room for, looked unusually interesting. Next time, we'll act as though this place is a Persian tapas restaurant and make a meal of the starter spreads.

Last night I went into the city of Rockville MD for dinner. This Persian/Iranian restaurant is nicely decorated. It has a food shopping attached to the left as you enter the front door. The restaurant is to the right. There is one large room with photos of Iran being projected onto one wall.

Tables were for four people. I ordered the lamb Kabab. It was medium rare and nicely flavored. There was served on the plate with it a sliced onion, rice, and a green salad with a slice of tomato.

The atmosphere was quiet so I could have an easy conversation.

First of many to be visits. Large menu with a wide variety of choices. Delicious authentic Persian recipes. Staff was professional and efficient. Ambiance is pleasant and family friendly. Portions are ample and prices are fair. Market next door is an added treat. Very pleased to add this establishment into our rotation.

We didn't know where to have dinner when staying nearby so we just starting walking and came to this strip mall and walked by several restaurants and Yekta was busy - almost always a good sign. We had no expectations but we both had excellent meals and the price was very reasonable. Next door is their attached food store, where we went to buy baklava - which was great and satisfied our dessert cravings for several days after. Service was outstanding.

This is a typical Iranian food restaurant.
Quality of food is great, prices are very reasonable, service is good, restaurant is clean and well organized.
I recommend Mahicheh, which is made of lamb shank braised in turmeric and tomato sauce, served with dill and fava bean rice, see picture added by me
This is a typical Iranian/ Iraqi entree which I like very much.
If you order drinks, avoid dough if you are not familiar with it. Dough is Yogurt mixed with water salt and mint.
Over all this restaurant is better than all Lebanese Mediterranean style food. It's menu is more rich and better priced. Alcohol is available.
