If you are looking for an inexpensive Iranian meal in Georgetown, this is good place to try. The food is good and the price is right.

My family and I throughly enjoyed the food here. The service was quick, food was tasty and large portions for the price. This is a nice place to go for an inexpensive, tasty and healthy dinner.

I just happened upon this place on my way to my hotel. Ordered the gyro and boy was it a treat. I loved it and the Falafels were great too. Definitely would recommend it if you're in the Georgetown area.

Tasty food, good price, big portions. Went for lamb since it's my favorite meat, was tasty, nothing incredible but good, rice was not as good, tried my friend's chicken and that was good too, he ordered it with salad instead of rice, smart move! I'll do the same next time.

I had beef and chicken, and both were cooked perfectly and had excellent flavor. Nice size serving for the money. I wish I lived closer!

Stopped in after walking all of Georgetown. Ordered Gyro platter and chicken kabobs for my wife. Food was authentic and the platters were large. Price was low as total bill was $20. It is a order from the counter and pick up your own food.

We enjoyed the food at this walk up self serve restaurant. The kabobs and basmati rice are good. The seating here is very limited and the ambiance lacks character and charm which is so important in Georgetown. I think the price is a bit high for self service without a nice place to eat.

While searching for a place to eat we found his place. Very good location. The lamb kebab is really good. Nice place to eat different tastes. If you are looking for fast food that is not hamburger this might be the place for you. Overall very good for once in awhile
