Shamshiry Restaurant Review:

Shamshiry’s reputation has been built on and sustained by its assorted kebab and rice dishes. In the mirrored setting you can dine on the shirin polo (sweet rice with sugared orange peel, pistachios and almonds) and kubideh (ground beef) or barg (filet mignon) kebabs grilled over a charcoal fire. Usually served atop or with rice, many of the meat kebabs also wrap well in the restaurant’s bread for a portable sandwich. Indulge in a rack of lamb or select one of the chicken or seafood entrées. Enjoy a Persian dessert to end the meal: rosewater-scented noodles and fruit syrup, Persian saffron ice cream or baklava. Note that take-out is readily available.
