Note that Panshjir has relocated to a new facility at 114 E. Fairfax Street in Falls Church, VA. The menu is largely the same as before, with several excellent vegetarian options, but the facilities are superior and there is plenty of parking.

We had roast lamb with vegetables and lamb kabob with rice. For starter they offered us "potato samosa" with spicy green chilly sauce. Rice with lamb was really good, very courteous & friendly service. They also offered freshly baked bread.

Went with a big family group. We asked for a large combo for the appetizers. They were all wonderful. Watch out for the green sauce; the heat builds! The lamb kabobs were amazing. The chicken Kabobs were as well. My favorite was the mushroom (and...More
