I've been coming to Shamshiri Restaurant for 9 yrs and I'm never disappointed! The staff has become like family! They are always happy to see and serve you no matter the reason you are there for. Their food is always quality and deliciously hot and mouth-watering! I highly recommend it and its really generous portions too! :)

You won't believe the ice cream

Everytime I tell my friends about this culinary delight they always want to try it, and we have always had a good time, good service and good food, what more can you ask for?

Great Tasting Persian Cuisine, Generous Portions.

When we first arrived... we noticed right away that the ambiance is a little too bright. We can always sit at the patio, but my company want to sit indoor. We also thought of walking out and switch to another Persian Restaurant before we order. It's just too bright. Then we decided to give it a try. The food took a while to arrive. Finally our order came and we noticed that the portions were generous. From the first bite of our Kebab, OMG it's so tasty! We were very impressed of the taste and barely talk to each other while eating. Then cousin looked at the dessert menu and we ordered the Persian Ice Cream with Pistachio Nuts & Rose Water. Never tried it before. It arrived and we noticed the texture is different. We tasted it and OMG, we're impressed again by the taste. We both love the rose perfume accent on the taste... it's just so classy to have rose perfume on your palate. The bill came... I would've spent more at Chilli's with less portion. We will come back again, and Shamshiri is now on our top list.

Great first impression, but lousy second chance

My first visit here I was impressed with the service and food so I decided to go back a second time shortly after. The portions were big, the service was great, and the food was delicious.

Unfortunately, the second visit was not as pleasant, and I will not be returning. I went on a quiet Saturday afternoon and there was only one other couple. All the waiters were sitting in the middle of the restaurant, watching a soccer game on tv. I ordered the hummus and found a hair in it. The manager came by and did not apologize or offer anything in return. Instead, he looked at us as if we did something wrong.

This spolied our appetite and although the food was still decent, I decided this would be the last visit. The hummus was not charged as expected, but again, but when we paid our bill there still was no apology. At the end of the meal our food, dishes and bread basket were dumped on top of each other and taken away. To me, this is rude and should be done in a polite and clean manner.

Great Persion Food

The first time I was introduced to middle eastern cuisine was at the Shamshiri in Hollywood in 1990. Since then I was hooked and have been a loyal customer!! Great food, great taste, good value for your money. The Glendale location is small but has outdoor sitting. Although there is free parking it gets full quickly. One more piece of advice, for some strange reason the Shamshiri in Northridge is not that great, the food tast is totally differenct. Not good.

Great find in Glendale.

For years I've missed enjoying Persian cuisine because my husband never wanted to try it. Then a couple of years ago his company's Christmas party was at a ""middle eastern"" restaurant in Studio City. Now, he's open to trying different places. A friend recently brought us to Shamshiri...conveniently close to our home. It was wonderful. The food was abundant and the authentic choices great. There were several dishes I'd never tried before (many of the appetizers and the ""stews""). I will definitely be returning here soon.

Great Overall

Delicious and plentiful food, service was good, and location was intimate. Great experience. Try the faloodeh for dessert on a hot day, light and refreshing. A pleasure!
