I had the Lamb Sultani and it was so tender and flavorful! It also came with seasoned ground beef medallions and lots and lots of rice! I enjoyed the Persian Tea as well. I will definitely return.

I have been wanting to try Shamshiry for many years, but never got around to it until last week. While I am glad that I gave this place a shot, I do not know how often, if ever, I will return. Don't get me wrong, the food was very tasty and very unique. However, the restaurant lacks coziness and does... More

As a solo diner, often times it can be awkward dining out. I found the restaurant on another website and the reviews seemed to be quite good. So, I went tonight around 8:00pm and the restaurant was full on a Thursday night. When I stepped in the door, the smells were right, and the manager was finishing up a transaction... More

I have frequented this restaurant for years. It is a modest place with simple decor and chairs. The food is (ethnic) comfort food. Various rices. Kebabs. Pitas. Simple salads. For a reasonable price patrons get fairly large portions -- big plates of steaming rice. The wait staff has always been pleasant and helpful (they serve me tea when I wait... More

Food could be better.. especially the beef kebab that was bit dried. Have eaten better Persian food. Service leaves a lot of room for improvement... delays and a broken glass pitcher.... not coming here again!

I've been visiting here for nearly 20 years even though I don't live in the area. My best friend has, though, and it's top of our list whenever I visit. From the green paste and butter on flat bread to the fluffiest, most flavorful rice, one of my favorite meals.

Pretty much everything was good, although not great, and the price was very good. We had the zereshk polo, mahi kabob, jujeh kabob, and shirazi salad, (all good), the Persian salad and panir sabzi (both meh), and the lamb shank (strangely greasy--not so good). I can't tell you how the torshi bademjan was because, although we ordered it and later... More

It's quite good Iranian Restaurant .. the place is small, crowded and not classy. Waiters are not so professional and price is reasonable. Food is just good.

After a two hour yoga, I love to stop by Shamshiry for a Shamshiry! First you must workout and then, reward yourself to any favorite dish. Have fun!

They serve very good Persian food. The restaurant does not look classy. The prices are reasonable. The serving time is decent.
