The food was very good. Reviews talked about how special it was, and we indicated on the reservation that it was a birthday celebration. That was not acknowledged, and the waiter made us feel rushed. At one point he started to take a shared appetizer plate when we were still eating off of it! At the end of the meal, we received some warmer service from a woman. Once we paid, we were ignored. It was good, but not much beyond that.
The restaurant was excellent. I had the meat combination meal which was juicy and tasty. Our waitress was Erica and she was great also.
Very nice meal. Lamb kabob and dolmeh were delicious. Very generous portions. My wife ordered the special which was salmon. She really enjoyed the salmon but not the rice or the sides. She regretted not getting the salmon kabob dinner.
It was great to take my parents who are in their 80's. We all enjoy persian food. It was very noisy though. Hard to have a conversation. We'd go back though.
We had a great time. It was quite noisy, though, until the crowd started to thin out.
This is my second time at this restaurant. The food is consistent and my stepmother requests to go each year for her bday.
e have been here many times and it wasn't as good as usual in regard to the seasoning of our food...usually the seasoning is much better than tonight
Best Persian food in the DC area.
Great portions and service. Highly recommend the lentil rice accompanied by a beef kabob!
Enjoyed the food. The beef kabobs were delicious--well marinated and grilled just right, tender and juicy. The baklava for dessert was so-so, not bad, not great. The restaurant was relatively busy. The wait staff was slim but seemed to keep up with the orders very well. The adjoining market was fun to peruse and shop for many tempting items.
Yekta restaurant is a hidden jewel on Rockville Pike.
I have been here at least 5 times in the last 4 months. The food and service have been consistently good! Fresh, flavorful, and delicious.
Despite being very busy on a couple of occasions, the staff was always congenial and service oriented. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Absolutely awful server. I am really disappointed as I’ve been coming to yekta since I was a kid. Our server didn’t smile and was very rude. He was always in a rush to clear our plates before we were even done and had plenty of food left on the plate! He didn’t greet us, check in on us, or care at all about our dining experience. Miss all of the older kind servers yekta used to have. What an awful meal!
the server was disinterested in us but it was still great food
Outstanding service, delicious food. Great for special occasions, birthday's, family get together, New Year's Eve, anytime.
Great food. Great service. Servers were very attentive . And the grocery store connected to the restaurant is a wonderful gem!
Love the food here. Service is great.
A very average restaurant, at best. Very much a cafeteria setting. No ambience. Kabobs were as Kabobs usually are, of average quality and presentation. Located in a strip mall which defines the restaurant pretty much. Might go there for lunch but not for any special evening dinner. Overrated on OpenTable, which I am trusting less and less.
Did not like what I ordered: both appetizer and enteee
Food was good, but service could have been better. Very loud and noise level was very disturbing. I understand it is a small restaurant, but the diners should not be talking this loud. I did not see any manager, asking very loud customers to keep it down. I dine a lot, but this noise level was unbearable.
Best service always! Polite and attentive but not smothering.
