Outstanding meats and fluffy rice in a surrounding that is as authentic as you can get so far away from Iran. If you enjoy Iranian food, this place is a must.

It is such a typical Iranian restaurant. The food was very delicious and fancy. Try the mix plate

Was looking forward to lunch at Shamshiry on a visit from out of state... hadn't been there for years. We order 3 orders of beef kabob kubedeh. My issue was with the bread dip served and the pickled eggplant relish (torshi) They both contained hot peppers which is NOT a part of classic Persian Cuisine... perhaps this is an adaptation to the dining palate of Notthern Virginia?!
Another issue I had was that except for the aromas you could have been in any restaurant ... There were some crooked paintings on the wall and absolutely nothing that indicated a Persian decor.The portions of rice and kebab wete generous and were prepared well.
Only one half of a grilled tomato was served ... usually a whole tomato is served in proportion to the rice/ kebab portion. A little disappointed!

It’s a nice restaurant. Good food and service. We go there quiet often and I love their Kubedah kabobs with rice and salad. The green sauce with bread is perfect before your meal.

I've been to Shamshiry three different times now and tried different items each time. Honestly, the food is just ok. Most recently, I ordered the kabob barg which came with rice, half a tomato and few onion slices. The menu description talks about the proper way to eat this dish is with a raw egg which you mix in with hot steamy rice and sumac. There was no egg and the rice was lukewarm. You can order an egg but it costs extra. The meat was cooked medium well, very tender. The wait staff has never been very pleasant and at my last visit, my guest and I were rushed out on a busy Sunday. I will not return to this place again.
