Service is counter service - walk up, order, pick up order at the counter. Although our children did not care for the food - my husband loved it. Quality and... read more

I often get the chicken kabab platter, "Moby's Joojeh". It comes with delicious mild spiced rice; bit of "Greek"salad with nice lemony o&v dressing; savory grilled chicken breast chunks; a great yogurt dressing for over the chicken and their stone oven cooked pita. A meal full of flavor, low in fat, totally satisfying. Can even go into 2 meals if... More

You will not regret eating at this place. Their kabobs are the best in DC area, but prepare to pay-very pricey!

I'm not a traditional kabob person, so maybe this is why I like Moby Dick's so much...it's not too spicy or ethnic for my tastes. I absolutely love the chicken kabobs with rice and my wife gets the chicken with bread. I could eat here every other day.

We had been meaning to try this place for some time, but arriving too early for our movie, Taken 2 (and DO go see it, don't listen to the critics) we had time to pop in for a late lunch. Good kabobs, the chicken was the winner. Their rice was tasty and the salad a nice addition to our lunch.... More

Great food and selection. The meet quality is excellent and the taste is even better. I eat there 2-3 times a week for the last 3 years and enjoy it everytime I go there. The portions are big so it is a good value for the money.The comments from my friends are pretty much the same as mine.

Ate here several times and got take out several times. It's good - not awesome, but convenient. Large portions and hot food cooked to order. I recommend if you are waiting for a movie or doing some shopping and want a casual place.

This is a great place to grab some Mediterranean food before catching a movie at Kingstown Regal. They cook to order, so plan on about 5-10 minutes for your food to be ready. But, enjoy snacking on some fresh tandoori bread while you wait.

I remember when the Moby Dick in Mclean was THE place to go for kabobs. This is so not true anymore. The Kingstowne location is even worse than the Mclean place. The service is poor, the kabobs are cold and dry, and the atmosphere is bad. If you want a kabob, you would do better to get a Chicken Tikka... More
