Good food; well prepared. Might do well to fix up the place, perhaps tablecloths, since they want to be less a carryout and more a sit down joint. Apparently they have music. Must be another room we did not see, as the space seems to small for music. Key thought is the food, which is quite good.

I've dined here several times, most recently in Dec 2013, and have always found the walk-up service very friendly and the food quite tasty. But I'm put off by the fact that the staff is very slow to clear tables. It's not unusual to find oneself seated next to a table full of dirty dishes & food scraps.

Nora's is in an indistinct strip shopping center right on rte 40; not sure why the pictures above are even shown. Noura is not Nora's. If you live in the area of Burtonsville and Columbia, MD, and have eaten at Maiwand Kabob or Mimi's Kabob, Nora's will disappoint if you are expecting the wonderful piquant spices from the other places....

I've eaten at Nora's twice, once for a quick lunch - falafel, and another time for dinner with friends -dolmades & shrimp kebabs. The portions are enormous, and the food is delicious. I think the falafel, gyros, and meze are more flavorful than the kebabs, but the kebabs are good as far as kebabs go. The atmosphere is great, and... More

The kabobs at Nora's are OK, but I have certainly had better kabobs. My biggest issue was with the "tenderloin" kabob, which seriously lacked tenderness (it was tough and chewy). A good "Barg" kabob melts in your mouth because first it is the highest quality meat and second it has been marinated correctly, I though this one was neither.

Nora's Kabob located on route 40 in Ellicott City is absolutely wonderful. I've been there about 5 times now and each time, I leave full and completely satisfied. I highly recommend the spinach pie as a starter then finished with any one of their signature Kabobs. They include rice and a variety of fresh vegetables. The atmosphere is elegant/casual and...

This restaurant is a small jewel! The food is great and the ingredients used are not only fresh but taste great. The owners of this restaurant obviously took a lot of pride and care in selecting their menu. I had the lamb with the salad and eggplant and it was wonderful. If you appreciate good food this is definitely a... More

This is a small restaurant, I would guess it could seat 25 persons. Now to the food, it's very good. The menu covers the items that you would expect like Hummus and Stuffed Grape Leaves both of which I had and were very good. The prices are very reasonable, staff knows the menu and are very helpful. I can see... More

We tried Nora's on Mother's Day on our personal banker's recommendation. It was so good that we've already returned twice! Kabob platters -- served with rice, salad, or half of each -- are uniformly ample, colorful, and tasty. (The Alaskan salmon, lamb, and koobideh kabobs are particularly succulent.) Gyros -- also appealing and generously sized -- comes with spinach pie.... More

My girlfriend and I were looking for something different for local, casual dining. We found Nora's and really liked it. Good food, Small, comfortable resturant. Friendly service. We'll be back!
