Every Persian I s/w says this is the absolute best Kabob place in the DC area. I'm not Persian but I've been to a good share of Kabob places. This place is good but IMHO not the absolute best. Most Persians would laugh but I...More

This restaurant is bustling both table side and take out. The food is excellent and generous. The seasoning is more refined and authentic than a competing local chain restaurant a block away. Shimshiry really kicks it up a notch.

Been to Shamshiry couple of times, each time it has been great. Albalou Polo is excellent, specially with the chicken kabobs. During lunch time the place is extremely busy and can be difficult to find a seat.
