Yes, they have Kabob and it's Tasty

Got a recommendation for that restaurant from a local Tempe work colleague. The place was a little deserted (only 4 tables were occupied when we arrived), but as we could not careless for the atmosphere we baldly sat in one of the tables and eagerly waited to the menu.

We've been to Tasty Kabob, a small strip mall restaurant in Tempe owned by a Persian couple, twice recently. First with a party of four, then we brought a group of ten - everyone enjoyed both the experience and the food. Homa, co-owner works the front of the house and is very personable, while her husband cooks and occasionally comes... More

What I got there was impolite and indifferent/scornful staff who treated us as if we were annoying insects, rather than customers. I ordered the beef kebab with rice and it was the worst I ever had. Absolutely tasteless. The rice was overcooked and sticky . It wasn't a good experience. I've had enough and my experience was horrible.

I've been eating at Tasty Kabob for 25 years and have had lunch or dinner there dozens of times. I've taken many many groups of guests from all over the country (and beyond) and have never been disappointed. The food is consistently delicious. I usually have the kabobs--when you order be sure to ask for half rice and half salad... More

We ended up eating twice in a week after our first visit was so good. During both our visits, we ended up having chicken or lamb kebab Pitas and Hummus as starters, which were all incredibly tasty. We followed up with Saffron Icecream, which we all loved. The place is in a small strip mall. The service, food presentation and... More

I am embarrassed that I have not written a review previously, as we have dined here about 20 times over the past five years + years. The couple who own Tasty Kabob are beyond gracious. They remember us, even though we are there only several times a year. They remember my husband's Scotch and water, and we have noticed that... More

High praise for amazing Persian brought us to Tasty Kabob. We were celebrating mom's birthday & she was yearning for Persian food having lived there years ago. Expectations were high & Tasty Kabob delivered with its service. But the food was average. You'll receive a ton of rice with your meal, even when choosing the 1/2 rice, 1/2 salad option... More

Food was ok but my entire plate (beef and lamb combo plate) had two dinky pieces of each. I guess they should rename the place tasty rice since my entire plate was rice, for $12 I expected a little more than that. I would suggest that you go elsewhere!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I liked the food. Very comfortable place. Nice and friendly host. We got the dish prepared for our taste and liking. The owner was friendly and helped us choose the dish of our choice and we enjoyed the food.

Great food but this place is always empty and the waiters were a little slow when I went. Although I love their food it is way over priced. There is a lot of competition in this area of food and so for that I think their food is over priced now. Their fesunjoon is great as well as their kabobs.
