These guys are terrible. Unbelievably rude and unfriendly. Over priced, bad value. I visited Kabob Place on Friday, July 18th. I was visiting DC for a 4 day conference, staying across the street at the Hilton Hotel Crystal City. I had never been there before, so I had a few questions about the menu. I asked like 2 or 3...

Found the Kabob Palace on Yelp while staying at the Crystal City Marriott. The first visit I had the chicken kabobs which were very tender, seasoned and a nice char-grill flavor. The naan bread was freshly made large warm and tasty. I had the spinach and rice my first day also had the chickpeas, lentils on two of my four... More

Wow, everything was really good here! This place is super close to where my sister lives and this was the first thing she recommended to me. There was a bit of a line to order but I got the food in about 30 min or so. The wait wasn't too bad I guess. All in all, whenever I'm back in... More

On a recent stay at a hotel in Crystal City, we happened upon 'Kabob Palace', which was just a few blocks from our hotel. It is a sit down eatery, but it's one of those places where you place your order at the counter and are given a number. Then, you find a table and wait for them to call... More

The quality of food has gone down a little from last year, specially the salads and curries. Chicken with bone was also just OK. Boneless chicken or the lamb kabobs were better.

Great late night food. Don't worry about the cop watching you eat, he's just protecting the place and you.

Pick your meal. Pay your bill. Take your number. Wait to be called. Say "no" to the salad. Get your meats with chickpeas AND spinach as your sides. Enjoy the bread. Repeat.

Happened to find myself at this place on a Friday night and was blown away by the number of people inside. It's a fairly small place but seems to bring in huge, diverse crowds. They have a very large selection of authentic South Asian/Middle Eastern items and daily specials. I got a platter of Nihari for about $12-13, which seems... More
