Best chicken kabobs

After several trips here, including our recent last week, we go nowhere else for a moist middle, nicely charred, expertly seasoned chicken kabob. Yes, it's a chain. And I've eaten at these all around the Washington, DC area. This store though seems to work harder to get it right. Combo platter... read more

Being a vegetarian we found the falafel sandwich to be tasty. The portions are enormous. We also ordered baklava in a box to go. The setting is just fine for a sit down. The waiter did ask if we wanted feta cheese in our sandwich which was not what we learnt to expect from visits to their Herndon location. Good... More

I love their Chicken Kabobs! It's reasonably priced and has such a great flavor. I have found Moby Dick's consestiantly good through out the DC metro area and has reasonable prices.

My husband and I are no experts on kabobs, even though we have eaten them in Turkey, Greece, and other countries. Each area seems to have a slightly different recipe. We absolutely love the Kabob-E Barreh that this Moby Dick's makes. The lamb is tender and seasoned just right, and the pita bread is fresh and hot. Also, their Dolmehs... More

This is a chain restaurant of mainly Persian and some middle eastern food in eat coast. In my opinion it is as close as Persian food can get to fast food. The quality of the food is not superb but a tad above average. price on the other hand is reasonable.

Moby Dick is a chain in DC metro, I used to visit their restaurant in McLean, VA many years ago. I decided to take my wife to their relatively new restaurant in Ashburn on her birthday. I am delighted to find that they have a much better restaurant in terms of ambience and menu. I place lots of importance in... More

I love the grape leaves and all the sides. I could go here and get JUST the sides and be satisfied. But the dinners are great too. The spiced beef kabob and the chicken are my favorite. Always clean. Fast service. When weather is nice I like to sit outside. Good value good food

We had four big adults with big appetites. One of us was a picky eater. So we called up Moby Dick and ordered the giant family platter. That's the way to do, like you mean business! The family platter was the best value for our group. It includes an assortment of meat skewers, rice, appetizer, a couple salads, bread, baklava.... More

My daughter and I stopped here for chicken kabobs w/rice. They were yummy! The restaurant is a fast food style where you order and wait for your number to be alled but it's freshly made food to order. The meals came with a lot of rice, grilled tomatoes and a half pita or they have an option for salad or... More
