I do not like the food!

The chicken was dry and flavorless! Chicken rice was average. Curry was average. Kabob was just ok - I had tried much better kabob in DC area.

#1 - it's on the back side of a strip mall and looks sketchy - it's dumpy, but seemed reasonably clean inside and had a steady stream of regulars. #2 - menu board is with pictures and a little hard to figure out #3 - Food is cooked to order so it will take awhile #4 - you get to... More

Great Middle Eastern food! The lamb is so delicious and tender. Be sure to check out the daily specials. Portions are generous. Best to carry out, it's a little cramped inside. It's open 24 hours a day!

We stopped in because of all the great recommendations and the great Trip Advisor reviews. We ordered the #12, Chicken kabob and lamb kabob and shared the meal, it came with chickpeas and rice and a salad with a plate of bread. We didn't come close to finishing our meal but it was very good. The Chicken I loved, the... More

I lived in the mediterranean for 2 years and felt I was back there at the kabob palace. We now regularly go there for lunch - love it. Not fancy, not modern - but seriously good, authentic food. Love their buffet to pick and choose my favorites and I can't get enough of their bread.

This restaurant offers a good hearty helping of pakistani food with fragrant basmati rice and kebobs. The show was stolen by the AMAZING lamb chops cooked to perfection! The chickpeas ad rice were delightful. The food here is great quality. The wait can get long but it is well worth it for a good convenient meal. I do not think... More

Confusing, chaotic, not cheap, but AWESOME! I go every time I get a chance. We never go to the sit-down restaurant I heard they make the food at one location to serve both so we go to the other one.

Best kabob I've had in DC and elsewhere. Chickpeas and rice are perfection, as are the Kubideh and Chicken. I've never had a bad experience from this place. Worth every penny.
