Such a wonderful delight this restaurant was. Everything was authentically loyal to the original Persian recipe. During my stay to DC, I was there twice and everything was perfect. the staff is so courteous, and the bread they make from scratch is yummy.

The wait staff is always very pleasant. The kabobs are great, especially the chicken thighs. The lentil soup and vegetarian sampler platter are also very good. There is some outdoor seating in the nice weather.

The Sunday lamb special: lamb was really good. Love sitting outside on a nice day. Open table didn't show for this location. However, it shows the bethesda location. I can't get enough of the bread; ) keep up the good work.

I love the kabobs and specialty dishes. You can take the Clarendon station and your within. 1 mile. Open table takes reservations so take advantage. They have daily specials that are often big enough for two servings. Parking can suck so plan accordingly.
