Persian dive in Rockville - Sadaf Halal
I couldn't find any posts here on Chowhound about his place, so just wanted to say that I've enjoyed good meals here. Their rice is excellent and the kubidah is amazing. Everything else is cooked very well. "Dive" might be the wrong word, as the seating area is quite clean.

Reviving an old thread.
My husband and I LOVE this place. I'm vegetarian and get the hummous and one of the salads; my husband always gets a kebab.
What's really great is that if you ask, they will give you the crusty rice from the bottom of the pot!!! Just delicious!! Oh, and when we ask, they always give us extra little cups of chopped up hot peppers, which we mix with our salad (me) and rice (husband).
We keep meaning to try Yekta and will sometime soon, but we like Sadaf so much that it is hard to think about going someplace else.
I only eat halal meat, and Moby Dick switched over to non-halal meat quite a few years ago. I can't remember well enough, honestly, to compare.
I think the kubidah at Sadaf is better than Yekta. The rest I'd say about the same, but I haven't been to Yekta ever since I found Sadaf, quite a while now (2 years maybe). There's just something I like about Sadaf's charm.
