A home style Aghani meal

My husband and I regularly eat at the Arlington Kabob for a casual meal. You can eat in or take it home. One family owns the restaurant and does the cooking. Our favorite is the kefta platter. The rice is unbelievable and he hot bread is right out of the oven.

This place is a star in a neighborhood that is already blessed with many other ethnic restaurants. "Kabob" doesn't begin to cover the appeal. Susan, the owner/chef, and her family make stews, sandwiches, wraps, soups, fish platters. Fantastic naan, baked to order in the tandoor. Complimentary cardamom tea. Items seemingly prosaic, like chickpeas, are toothsome and rich with legume-y goodness.... More

We've been here 4 times; each time, the food was excellent. This is a small family-run business that takes a lot of pride in its food. The menu is not large, but the portions are, and the quality of the ingredients and preparation are first-rate. There's not much to the decor, and it's in a small, nondescript strip mall. Don't...

I frequently drop by for lunch and get the specials and the Rosemary Chicken is very good! I also like the special tsatsiki-like sauce that goes with a lot of the dishes. The lamb kabob is delicious but isn't as generous in portion size as some of the other dishes. All in all, a very nice hole in the wall... More

Arlington Kabob recently opened up down the street from my workplace and I decided to try it out. I have never been a huge fan of the food at kabob places but this one blew me away. Not only was my chicken cooked to perfection, but so was the rice and vegetables. The staff working that day were very friendly,... More

We love this place! The food is fresh and carefully prepared and consistently delicious - kabobs with something extra. It's a family-run restaurant, meaning you will enjoy good cheer and excellent customer care. It's the kind of place that friends insist that you try, with good reason.

This is a recent restaurant (a year or so), and I am glad to see something in this location that may be stable. The dinners are great. The Chapli Kabob is quite spicy and delicious. THe Lamb Chops were a bit dry. Dinners and Lunch. The lentil soup was super. Dinner comes with rice and two sides. My favorite is... More

Arlington Kabob is excellent! We took advantage of the restaurant's delivery service and ordered Chapli Kabob ($7.99) and Quabili Palow ($8.99) by phone this evening. They were delivered in about 30 minutes piping hot with naan, rice and two sides. (We ordered spinach and chick peas as our sides.) The food is as authentic and delicious as freshly made kabobs...
