Open Grill. Fresh Baked Bread. I was really impressed. I went there with some of my friends. The menu had white fish, steak, filet mignon, lamb, fresh salads, vegetarian and vegan dishes. The service as A+. We went on a Friday Nite, even though it was busy--the management was very professional and service with the food on the table was quick and food was nice and hot and delicious. I think Shamshiri Grill is a great place to go with friends because they serve alcohol. I order Red Wine. It is also a nice place to take a date because it has a nice ambiance. The music is nice and classy. Not too loud. Food is affordable. Lunch menu is like $6.95 and they do free delivery. I took a to-go menu home and I am totally ordering food from them to my home. I heard that they do catering for a lot of the Temples and Churches near by. I am asking my management to order delivery at our office! Yummy. They also have 6 kinds of rice. They even have brown rice! :) Not a typical Persian Restaurant. The walls are a tuscany orange and the paintings are beautiful. The tables are granite and the waiters and waitress seem to enjoy working there. Try it out. From a WLA neighbor to another, Shamshiri Grill is a recommended place in my Little Black Book of Amazing Restaurants ! :)-Samantha
I didn't know what to expect but I was looking for something new and I have never tried Ecuadorian cuisine. It is amazing! Perfectly tender pork on…
It's probably the best Schwarma I've ever had. (I'm sure anywhere in the middle east kills all of it here in the states, but I've never been.) This place is great. It's a little on the pricier side is the only downfall. The food is so good though. The Schwarma sandwich was plum full of amazingly flavored chicken Schwarma, cucumber salad, humus, topped with tahini. It had a bit of a bite towards the end which was amazing. I asked the owner what the spicy was and he replied "Do you have a million dollars?", fair enough. If you request pickles they will give them to you free of charge. The pickles here are a lil different than most of the Schwarma places I've been to. These are actually pickles, (oppose to the marinated purple looking turnips), with un-pitted green olives. The olives were amazing, the pickles themselves were quite a bit on the bitter side for my liking. Regardless this place is a great fricken Schwarma place.
When you first arrive at this place, you are thinking what the F???.. looks ghetto...but once inside.. this place has that hole in the wall charm.. This is one great Ecuadorian restaurant in Los Angeles. It's right next to Don Felix Peruvian restaurant which is also a great place.. I have tried their beef empanada and the breaded steak dish and they were all good.. also, try to soup.. wow.. tasty.. but the best is the Lomo Saltado (which is a thin cut of beef steak in a tomato, onion sauce over fries). Funny thing is the Don Felix next door has the same dish but I think the Ecuadorian version is better... also they have some wines and sangria which will make this a great meal... like someone wrote it's a mix of Latin and Italian food..
