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.

We visited this restaurant on a Saturday evening around 6:30. There was a short wait to get in, but was it worth it! The food was excellent. I got the chicken and my friend got the salmon kabob. The meat and fish were perfectly prepared,...More

Great food but expect to wait a bit. Atmosphere is not great but the food more than makes up for it. Very traditional kabobs, rice, etc. Highly recommend.

The restaurant is a bit outdated, but the food there is amazing and the dish size is large when it comes to the rice.

The most popular items on the menu are varieties of chelo kabib ranging from Soltani and Vaziri to the simple Koobideh. I suggest you go with a Barg with a side of chicken kabob and the shallot yougurt.

I had the Lamb Sultani and it was so tender and flavorful! It also came with seasoned ground beef medallions and lots and lots of rice! I enjoyed the Persian Tea as well. I will definitely return.

I have been wanting to try Shamshiry for many years, but never got around to it until last week. While I am glad that I gave this place a shot, I do not know how often, if ever, I will return. Don't get me wrong,...More

As a solo diner, often times it can be awkward dining out. I found the restaurant on another website and the reviews seemed to be quite good. So, I went tonight around 8:00pm and the restaurant was full on a Thursday night. When I stepped...More

I have frequented this restaurant for years. It is a modest place with simple decor and chairs. The food is (ethnic) comfort food. Various rices. Kebabs. Pitas. Simple salads. For a reasonable price patrons get fairly large portions -- big plates of steaming rice. The...More
