Good food, terrible service at Shamshiri

Richard Foss | Jul 27, 200101:15 PM     2

I dined at Shamshiri in Westwood last night and had astonishingly bad service. The waiter was brusque, brought the wrong item and didn't apologize, and stood in the back of the restaurant talking to another waiter while we were trying to get his attention for the bill. I had been reccommended to the place by a friend who praised it highly, and I can't believe it's always this bad. My dining companion though it might have been because we were not Persian and were a bit underdressed (nice casual, while most of the Iranians in the restaurant were wearing jackets and ties).
Anybody else have experience with this place? Was our experience an anomaly? Any reccommendations for a really good Persian place with a wide vegetarian selection?
