Great food, less than desirable atmosphere and service

Food was great, especially the lamb chop. I had their lamb chops twice in a week. The side dishes are of good quality, the spinach is delicious. Anyway, lamb is what brought me back for second visit. Service and atmosphere are less than desirable but totally acceptable if all you need is great... read more

The food is wonderful! But the service is truly awful. I don't mind waiting for good food, but rude service is really not acceptable. It seamed like singe females are not valued customers here.

In the heart of Crystal City - you will find delicious kabobs in a casual and somewhat chaotic shop. Just follow the taxi drivers - they appear to know where to find the best eats in town!

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.
