Sorry to learn that the restaurant is moving to a new location. Love the desserts and the appetizers Always a quiet atmosphere. Cardamom tea wonderful. A hidden gem with lots of wonderful memories associated with this place.

We had a fantastic meal at Panjshir. The food is very creative, especially if get beyond the usual kabobs. I had Quorma-E-Seib a delicious combination of apples, prunes, walnuts, and interesting spices served with yogurt, lamb and rice. My wife had a vegetarian platter with three dishes: carrot, spinach, and pumpkin. That description does not do justice to the dishes... More

Went with a big family group. We asked for a large combo for the appetizers. They were all wonderful. Watch out for the green sauce; the heat builds! The lamb kabobs were amazing. The chicken Kabobs were as well. My favorite was the mushroom (and chicken) Palow. It is fantastic! The sauce is rich and full of flavor. I don't... More

We have lived in Falls Church for nearly 20 years and have never been to this restaurant. A friend told us how good it was and we used Bite Squad to have a delivery. Wow! This is great food. The dumplings were amazing and the lamb and chicken dishes excellent. We will absolutely be back! Highest recommendation!

As usual, our dining experience was outstanding; the service is friendly and efficient, the atmosphere warm, cosy and quiet, and every dish was excellent. The new item, braised lamb shank, was outstanding - tender, tasty and accompanied by very well-seasoned pilaf. All vegetable sides were also excellent, and wine prices are very reasonable.

As best as we could tell, you can't go wrong here. We had quorma-e-seib, quabili palow, shalgam palow, and quorma palow, with sides of pumpkin, spinach, and carrots and cardamon tea, and everything was great. The decor is nice, the service is friendly if not terribly swift, and the price was $126 for four before tip. Highly recommended. We'll be... More

This has been one our favorite restaurants in Northern Virginia for years. We’ve finally lost count on the times we have had dinner there! A favorite of my wife’s, we’ve had at least one of her birthdays and a Valentine’s dinner here, and we’ve been pleased with every visit. This last time we enjoyed their Appetizers of Bulanee Kachalu (turnovers... More

We stopped in for dinner because we were in the area and saw it was on one of those coupon sites. What a find! Wasn't sure which entree to get and took the server's recommendation. The Quabili Palow was great! Tender lamb with rice and seasoning. My wife liked her Banjan Chalow, which was eggplant. Not a fancy place, but... More

Northern VA is foodie heaven and this is one of the best places in NoVA. I spend quite a bit of time here as my daughter's family lives here (when they're not out of the country) and we make sure to eat at Panjshir every time. I almost always get Kadu Chalow with lamb. The way they do pumpkin really... More

Love this place, especially the pumpkin dishes (Kadu Chalow) with or without lamb. Yummy bread, rice, salad, and desserts. The cardamon tea is tasty enough to convert this coffee drinker! Excellent service. Warm and professional. The good mood permeates the place and other diners. Park around back in the small lot or along the white wall along the side of... More
