Hidden and somewhat out of the way but excellent Turkish restaurant with friendly and courteous service. Well priced. Good wine selection. Owner was one of the Shah's top generals and several portraits of the royal family hang on the walls.

This is not your ordinary restaurant. First and foremost, the fact that the owner comes up to every table to check if everything was ok is an indication of class. Secondly, literally everything is delicious. Food and family atmosphere make this place the best Persian/Middle Eastern/Azeri restaurant in DC area. Highly recommended.

I work nearby so I've only had take out which was superb! Chicken Kabobs, so tender, saffron rice, delicious yogurt and a green dill sauce. Unusual and tasty. Next I tried the lamb kabobs which were even better! Owner is onsite and very friendly. Generous portions at a wallet friendly price. Will be back!

Visited for Dinner with family in October. The food was excellent and rightfully highlighted Persian food at its best. Very tasty and good value for money. Staff very efficient and friendly and service exceptional.

Best to eat in restaurant. Order a double kabob and it easily feeds two. Although they don't have an ABC license, you can bring your own wine that they will serve you. The tandoori chicken is great, but if you like lamb--this is the dish to order. The flat bread with the mint/hot sauce is amazing. The owner will probably... More

Amoo's was one of my favorite restaurants because it served authentic Persian cuisine at a fair price. Now, the winds of generational change seem to be blowing. The prices have gone up; the menu is fancier and less user friendly; the restaurant is getting a trendy modernist facelift; and, of course, the neon sign proclaims that it serves Persian fusion....

Undoubtedly the best middle eastern restaurant in the area. And, there are many. Lots of great Persian dishes to choose from. Personally, I need to get here more often.

This Eastern restaurant specializes in shish kabobs which are superb. We had the lamb kabob which was out of this world. The restaurant is tiny and was packed which is no surprise considering the quality of the food. The one negative was noise. The noise level in the resturant was excessive with so many people talking at once. If that... More

My husband and I normally went to various other Middle Eastern restaurants, but after reading a review decided to give Amoo's Restaurant a try. We were amazed at the quality of the food, far tastier and more subtle than Aladdin or Moby Dick's or even Shamshiry. The restaurant also had plenty of customers who seemed to come from Iran or...

We visited Amoos for a second time. We had the kubideh (sp). It was good and filling. The servings are large enough for 2 meals (better when it's fresh). The down side was that the service was slow (slow, slow). When we got there they had 3 wait staff and the restaurant was just starting to pick up.
