Still a favorite!

This was my first experience with Middle Eastern food, and it's still my go-to! It is always pretty clean, and food is always made fresh instead of waiting under a heat lamp. It's also right next to the movie theater, so it's a good pre-movie supper place.

Simple setting, counter service, but some great food. I love their Kubedeh. Lots of food - usually enough for lunch the next day.

Fell in love with Moby Dick in DC, and was thrilled to find an outlet nearby when we moved to the suburbs. Great hummus, great grilled chicken, a great DC staple successfully moved out to the suburbs.

The seating isn't that impressive but then it's in kingstowne shopping centre, has regal cinema next to it and a lot of other spots to eat and shop and enjoy, plus its halal food with yummy kabab and chicken and you will enjoy the food a lot, must visit and taste it,

Kabob comes in many varieties. Mine came today as a swordfish with long rice with a hint of saffron, salad, slice of tomato, cubic of feta and a half of lemon. I started coming to this place once in a while alternating swordfish and salmon kabobs. Food is always fresh, has unmistaken Middle Eastern flavors and well Americanized. It is... More

I felt like a dunce though because I was thinking american kabobs - which it is not. It was good lesson/expanding of knowledge for me! 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 quantity was good - you... 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.
